The RAT Assessment Framework tool App is now available for both iOS and Android. While this App was designed to examine the use of technology across a unit of work or a few lessons, I decided to download the RAT App for the self-critique process of my own revised lesson plan. This experiment was beneficial for my engagement with the RAT section of Assignment 1, Part 2 – Evaluate an ICT-based lesson: EDC3100 Lesson Plan U1061019
The RAT Assessment Framework tool is straightforward to use. It prompted me to respond to a range of questions about this particular instructional event. The results were determined according to my responses – based on my unbiased perception and interpretation of my revised lesson plan as critical review and reflection.
The RAT Assessment Framework tool revealed that this particular instructional event has a slightly higher level of Amplification, then an equal amount of Replacement and Transformation (see screenshot below). Please read an earlier blog How can ICT and Pedagogy be used? for a brief overview of ‘the RAT model’.
