Technology Integration Scope and Sequence (TISS)

By Steve Gandy
This scope and sequence project was designed to give veteran and novice teachers alike a skeleton plan that they can use to shape their students' technology use during the school year in our computer labs. It covers Kindergarten through fifth grade. While comprehensive in nature it is not a step-by-step guide. It can be amended or adjusted as the need arises. The lessons comprise some important portions of each grade level's curriculum and some excellent ways to integrate the use of our technology resources into that curriculum. In addition, naturally, the technology skills for each grade level are addressed.

The scope and sequence project is organized in the form of a journey. "A Year's Journey Through a Landscape Rich with Curriculum and Technology Integration." Besides the actual scope and sequence of the actual lessons, you will find that they have been annotated with sections called "Pre-Trip Planning" and "Post Trip Reflections". These sections, like the guides and conversations we might have on a real journey, are meant to help the teacher gain a full understanding of why these particular lessons were chosen and how they fit into the whole. Read them carefully and you might find that you don't need the specific lessons at all because others will occur to you. The actual details of the lessons are not nearly as important as the curriculum addressed and the technology skills used.

Essential Question(s)
1. How can you integrate technology into K-5 lessons?



"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.

Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
