Digital Integration

Classroom Digital Integration is where AtTech Edu support the teaching and learning in the classroom by planning, coaching and then team teaching on projects with the students. Digital integration is about using technology as a tool. AtTech Edu use the SAMR model to define the way technology is used across the curriculum. AtTech Edu firmly believe that if a pen and paper works best then use a pen and paper. 

This works inline with Instructional Technology Coaching, but goes one step further and works with the students in a team teaching capacity with the classroom teacher. This enables the classroom teacher to understand the digital element while using their own expertise. A Classroom Digital Integration would have a three step workflow, Planning, Team Teaching, Delivery Practice.

Workflow

Planning

Any digital integration in the classroom needs to be planned. AtTech Edu will sit and work with teachers to support them on how technology could be integrated into the current or future learning.

Team Teaching

AtTech Edu will only assume the technology expertise in the classroom. This may be teaching a new skill or just be there with the students to support problems with technology that arise. 

Delivery Practice

AtTech Edu will support the delivery of future lessons that focus on the technology skills used in the Team Teaching sessions. This will ensure that the teacher is confident to continue integrating these skills effectively in their in the future.
