Learning activity types function as “big picture” set of planning tools for teachers; they comprise methodological shorthand that can be used to both build and describe plans for standards-based learning experiences. Each activity type captures what is most essential about the structure of a particular kind of learning action as it relates to what students do when engaged in that particular learning-related activity (e.g., “group discussion;” “role play;” “fieldtrip”). Activity types are combined to create lesson plans, projects and units.
Here you will find various learning activity types as well as the background information on TPACK (technological pedagogical content knowledge) which connects content with technology integration.
