Modify by incorporating technology

Order Instructions:

1.Choose a lesson from your unit to modify by incorporating technology and answer the following:

  • Which lesson did you choose to modify to include technology?
  • Why did you choose to incorporate technology into this lesson?
  • Which type(s) of technology will you use in this lesson?
  • How will it enhance your lesson?
  • How will you ensure all students are learning?
  1. Create a lesson plan that outlines the use of technology in the lesson itself. The lesson plan should
  • The learning outcomes for the lesson (objectives)
  • The specific tools and resources needed to teach the lesson
  • How the technology will be integrated

Explicitly note with in the appropriate section(s) of the Implementation section of the lesson plan, where
technology and/ or virtual resources will be used. They should also be included in the Equipment and
Materials section, as well.

Part 1

The lesson that I decided to modify and include technology is statistics. Technology has
become part of everyday life especially when it comes to academics. The use of technology in
statistics makes it easy for students to be able to use various computer software to display the
data they have collected. Moreover, the technology helps them in understanding and finding
solutions to the statistical problems with ease.
The lesson plan will incorporate different technologies some of them are computer
software, powerpoint presentation, calculators, and online resources. The SPSS, excel
spreadsheets and Add-ins will be used in the tabulation and analysis of the data that the students
have collected. Moreover, students will use their scientific calculators when solving simple
statistical questions. In the class presentation, I will use powerpoint presentations. Powerpoint
allows for prior lesson planning, it is critical for this particular class. This is a powerful tool, as
features such as speaker notes and normal bullet point concepts as well as pictures can be used to
help in the learning process. Speaker notes can also be used and share with students to promote
their understanding.
The second aspect is online virtual sources. This provides an opportunity to access
various materials relevant for grade 8 students so as to help them achieve the class objectives.
The materials can be printed and shared with students who can use them to tackle various
assignments. The technology will enhance learning as it is engaging and this stimulates the
understanding process. Moreover, the technology can be downloaded into their personal devices
providing them with an opportunity to explore its applications before and after the class lesson.
This makes it easy to tackle the challenging section of the topic on time, hence enabling the
students to understand the intricate statistical concepts.

In order to assess that the students have understood the lesson plan, I will provide varied
types of assessments. I will give them quizzes, require them to submit journal reflections on the
lesson, and formative assessment tests to gauge their understanding of the topic.

Part 2

Concordia University Statistics Lesson plan for Grade 8

Lesson Name: Statistics
Teacher: Name of the teacher School site:
Subject: Statistics Unit: Statistical concepts Grade: 8

Lesson ( 1 of 3)
 Theoretical Framework of statistics.
 Simple calculations relating to statistics using calculators
 Application of statistics in real life situations for better understanding especially by using
PowerPoint to promote visual aid.
 Use excel spreadsheets and Add-ins, and SPPS in the tabulation and analysis of the data.
Lesson Goal
To set a basis that will promote understanding of statistical concepts. This is important as it will
prepare the grade eight students for the next level of academic learning. The use of simple
calculations and use of charts will be used in the data analysis. Application of power point

computer software, and online resources will help a lot in obtaining relevant information for
Grade 8 students.
All Lesson Behavioral Objectives
 Show clear understanding of the concepts through completion of individual assignments.
 Group discussions to promote clarity of various concepts since the children tend to open
up more and share with their peers.
 Implementation of quizzes, journal articles for reflection and tests to demonstrate their
levels of understanding.
 The application of statistics in real life examples and sharing through contributions to the
Integration of technology, Language Arts, Math, and other Subject Areas
 Technology will help in providing visual aid to students for instance through power point
presentations as well as sharing more information that can help students understand
concepts easily.
 The English language particularly will play a great role in enabling students analyze the
various concepts relating to statistics.
 Art on the other hand will help in undertaking simple calculations relating to real life as
well as help in giving the students an opportunity to develop unique ways of solving
 The rules of mathematics for instance addition and subtraction will be critical in
understanding the whole subject.
Differentiation Strategies

 Class work strategy
 Application of PowerPoint tools which can help in analyzing various concepts.
 Unique sitting arrangements to promote sharing amongst themselves
 Use of textbook materials that can aid understanding

 English Language Learners (ELL)
 Application of real life examples to help students understand statistics.
 Use of simple language that students can easily comprehend.
 Individualized Education Plans (IEPs)
 Creating opportunities for the students to undertake unique exams based on their
 Keeping track of the student progress by the use of technology based devices such
as laptops.
 Allowing students to work on simple questions using their preferred methods.
 Use of graphs and pictures to aid understanding.
 Starting off with simple concepts and then advancing slowly
 Special Education (SPED)
 Use of online resources to promote learning for each individual
 Creating extra time to help students improve of their studies
 Providing extra homework for the weak students and asking parents to support the
children in learning
 Encouraging students to work hard using motivation and counseling for each one of

 Talented and Gifted (TAG)
 Encouraging the students to support one another in the learning process
 Challenging students with some questions based on topics not yet covered to promote
their learning.
Safety Considerations
 Providing appropriate amounts of homework that is relevant for the pupils so that they
don’t strain their mind too much.
 Promoting good relations amongst the students
 Including some exercises to ensure students refresh their brain from time to time.
