This webinar introduced Webb's four Depth of Knowledge (DOK) levels and explained how each level grows in cognitive complexity. Using this concept, the presenters provided educators with strategies for integrating technology and create more cognitively engaging and challenging tasks in the classroom. They also discussed how DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks.
