Members from the Department of Education & Human Development Publish Article in The Clearing House
Janeen Pizzo, Dr. Natalie Sue Svrcek, Dr. Kathleen Colantonio-Yurko, Dr. Henry “Cody” Miller, Dr. Averill Kelley, and Nicole Coppola published an article in The Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas titled “Using PICRAT to Develop Digital Graphic Organizers.”
The Clearing House offers informative, practical articles on teaching and administration in middle schools and junior and senior high schools. In peer-reviewed articles, educators report their successes in teaching as well as present articles on administrative procedures, school programs, and teacher education for the secondary level. Theoretical articles and occasional pieces on comparative education also appear.
Their article addresses the ways that PICRAT has moved beyond TPACK and SAMR, two foundational theories for integrating technology in the classroom, as a more robust avenue for technology integration in online and blended spaces. They share how the PICRAT framework can help educators create digital graphic organizers that require students to be interactive and creative, where the effect on learning is amplified or transformed.
