Relative Advantage Chart


Artifact Introduction: During our first week in Integrating Technology into the Classroom Curriculum, we were to read the first two chapters in  Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching & reflect on the learning problems that technology can help solve. We were then to synthesize this information to create a relative advantage chart that showed ten learning problems (connected to our chosen content area & grade level) with related technologies, relative advantage, and expected outcomes.


Reflection of Learning/Standard Connection:  This assignment required me to really delve into my curriculum and analyze how technology could help solve a lot of the problems I (or my students) encounter daily. I got the experience to research a lot of available technologies or apply tools that I was already familiar with in innovative ways.

  • AECT Standard 2.1 Creating: To create this relative advantage chart, I needed to apply content pedagogy to create appropriate applications of processes and technologies to improve learning and performance outcomes.
  • AECT Standard 2.2 Using: To create this relative advantage chart, I implemented appropriate educational technologies and processes based on appropriate content pedagogy.
  • AECT Standard 2.3 Assessing/Evaluating: I demonstrated an inquiry process that assessed the adequacy of learning and evaluated the instruction and implementation of educational technologies and processes grounded in reflective practice to create this relative advantage chart.
  • AECT Standard 3.2 Using: In order to create this relative advantage chart I needed to make professionally sound decisions in selecting appropriate processes and resources to provide optimal conditions for learning based on principles, theories, and effective practices.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
