During this two-part symposium, we will first introduce and explain the activity types approach to technology integration, demonstrating how it helps teachers to develop technology integration knowledge (specifically, technological pedagogical content knowledge, or TPACK). We will then introduce, explain, and share learning activity type taxonomies for K-6 literacy, secondary English, foreign language, mathematics, science, and social studies curriculum areas. During the final segment of each symposium session, we will invite attendees to collaborate on further development and refinement of the activity types by requesting that they offer the taxonomies to their colleagues for review and comment. We will collect these evaluation data via an online survey instrument, and then propose to report on the results of this vetting and refinement process during SITE 2010.
