LoTi Snapshot: Union County School District

Provided below is the agenda for our LoTi "Snapshot."

Let's first explore digital-age teaching and learning by viewing the short video clips below.

Now, rank the videos from Lowest (1) to Highest (3) in terms of representing digital-age teaching and learning.

• Discussion: Add a comment at the bottom of this blog post now about the specific "look-fors" that separated your highest rated video from your lowest rated video.

What is H.E.A.T.?

• Discussion: Conduct a H.E.A.T. analysis of the Food Chains video. Was it bringing the H.E.A.T. to student learning in terms of Higher order thinking, Engaged learning, Authentic connections, and Technology use. Take a minute to reflect on the amount of student H.E.A.T. generated from the video. 

What is LoTi?

• Discussion: Conduct a LoTi Sniff Test of the Elements Commercial and Biology videos. What was the LoTi Level of each video? 

• Discussion: How does LoTi relate to H.E.A.T.? How does the LoTi/H.E.A.T. Model relate to 21st Century Skills.
