Education Technology Assessment - Self Test
Let's begin by you completing a short ETA test to discover which type of teaching approach you are currently using. This diagnosis is important before we move on to understand how to teach with technology. Click the link below to discover your Education Technology Assessment profile.
So what does your ETA score mean? Your test result will score you in the following types. Read each of them to discover more about your ETA profile.
- Passive - Consumer (PC) : This is the most common approach to using technology in the classroom. This is where teachers use videos or ebooks, however the learning is often nothing more than passive consumption of content - much like it is without technology.
- Active - Consumer (AC) : Teachers sometimes realise how passive the PC approach is and try and make use of games or some apps in their teaching. However while these games often lead to more active learners, they typically do not result in any artefact being produced.
- Passive - Producer (PP) : Another route taken by teachers is using social networks or smartboards in the classroom. However while these may result in some form of artefact being produced, such as the content on the smartboard being printed, the student involvement is often passive at best.
- Active - Producer (AP) : The Active-Producer should be our goal when using technology for teaching and learning. Not only are the students active, and so realising all the benefits of active learning, but they also produce content which also has multiple benefits in learning.
