The task requires students to engage with abstract ideas for which they have no prior grounding in the physical world (e.g. memorizing a math formula)

  

The task provides opportunities for students to engage with concrete objects in the physical world, but there is little emphasis on developing deeper understandings of related concepts (abstract ideas).

The task provides opportunities for students to make connections between the physical world and related concepts (abstract ideas).

“Activity-Mania�: The task requires students to participate in hands-on activity, but there is no connection to a broader understanding.

Activities that are related to a broader theme, but they do not directly contribute to the accomplishment of the larger task.

“Purposeful Activity�: Activities are clearly designed to allow students to successfully accomplish a broader investigation.



 

   



Technology is used for the sake of using technology, not because it will enhance the inquiry. The technology is not needed to accomplish the task.         

   

Technology has some relevance to the inquiry. The technology is somewhat needed to accomplish the task.

   Technology is used in a purposeful manner that demonstrates an appreciation of what the tool can do. The technology is instrumental in accomplishing the task.

The major focus of the task is on developing skill and fluency with a single application (limited context).

The task provides opportunities for students to use technology to improve efficiency.

The task provides opportunities for students to use technology to improve efficiency and to think differently.

The teacher decides which technologies will be used.

Students and teachers collaboratively decide which technologies will be used.

The task provides opportunities for students to determine which technologies are most appropriate to the task.

The teacher selects web-based resources for the students.

The teacher selects web-based resources for the students, but also encourages the students to use search engines and begin to make appropriate choices about which sources to use for their research.

 www.calgaryscienceschool.com

The task provides opportunities for students to use critical thinking skills to select relevant and reliable information from the vast resources available on the web (e.g. efficient use of search engines, critical analysis of websites, intellectual integrity, awareness of internet safety).
