In the evaluation rubric, the following component is addressed: Applies to objects that have a technology-based interactive component. Used to rate degree and quality of an object’s interactivity. Interactivity broadly means that the object responds to the user – the object behaves differently based on what the user does. This is not a rating for technology in general, but for technological interactivity. If you chose, you could add a research component to incorporate a broader use of technology throughout this process.
