ISTE Classroom Observation Tool (ICOT)


The ISTE Classroom Observation Tool (ICOT) is a free online resource created to help guide teachers, administrators, and other educators as they observe and assess technology integration in classrooms. ICOT provides a set of questions designed to aid the classroom observation of a number of key components of technology integration. The tool can be used to collect observations to study school programs or curriculum interventions, document the effective use of technology in schools, and share information.

The ICOT looks at several attributes of the learning environment including student groupings, teacher roles, learning activities, technologies used by teachers and by students, technology use time, and percent of students engaged.
