audience and have appropriate vocal volume and clear articulation. Make sure students know where they retrieved information from the Internet or other sources. Students may need help citing information.


In this lesson example, technology was integrated throughout and student understanding could be continuously evaluated. While students are researching and putting information into a Concept Map to organize their thoughts, teachers observe, ask questions, and highlight appropriate information, as well as check for understanding.


When using authentic assessments that are more subjective in nature, include a rubric that focuses on the quality of student research, communication of this research, organization of presentation, and quality of the product itself. Include rubrics for the Concept Map, story- writing, and the final presentation. The criterion in the rubric should include both content knowledge and technology skills.


Conclusion Throughout the process of using technology as a tool in the teaching and evaluation of students, teachers will most likely observe students collaborating, communicating their understanding, and becoming engaged in the process of learning through authentic tasks. As the teacher, you provide observation, guidance, and scrutiny of student understanding throughout the entire activity process, not only at the very end with one final culminating assessment.
