I was reading up on shannonmarieb’s Blog about the frameworks and saw that she too had downloaded to RAT assessment tool app. I downloaded it on Tuesday and used it to assess the lesson plan I had chosen before diving into the lesson plan evaluation for assignment 1.
What it does is uses the framework and asks you a series of questions about a unit of work, lesson plan or application, it compiles all your answers and gives you a column graph of where your ict use sits in all three areas of the framework. To my relief my Amplification column was the larger of the three so I went ahead with beginning my evaluation for the assignment.
If you get a chance read up on this slidshare that is a great article that explains each area of the framework. I still find myself arguing between replacement and amplification
I will definitely be using this tool for assignments 2 and 3!
