My edmodo classroom

  2. 2. Applied Instructional Design and e-Learning tools and techniques for online learning project- semester 1
  3. 3. Learning objectives • Integrate technology seamlessly in my classroom instruction. • Differentiate my instruction to suit learners of various learning intelligences. • Actively involve my students in the teaching learning process and make learning fun and long term for them. • Develop higher order thinking skills in my students. • Connect with my students in case of absence or breaks. • Use time more effectively in the classroom by integrating edmodo effectively in the teaching learning process. • To get to know my students better.
  4. 4. Learner profile • Students of class 8 of my school are using edmodo blended along with regular classroom teaching and remain connected with the class in case of absence from school. They will be accessing edmodo during the summer break for group/individual project work. • Students of class 11 (of the science stream) are also using edmodo blended with the regular classroom instruction.
  5. 5. Know my students well • Students developed their Learning profiles on a link that I provided them and also took screenshots and uploaded them. • Learn about their strengths and weaknesses and interests by observing them formally and informally on edmodo, in addition to the class room.
  6. 6. The Discover feature on edmodo helps me research new information
  7. 7. Virtual library can be used to store information to access at any time
  8. 8. • Pre planning a lesson that incorporates a variety of media to meet the changing needs of the learner, stimulates their curiosity and provides a novel learning experience. • Network with other teachers from my school as well from teachers from all over the world and share experiences and expertise . Join different communities on edmodo
  9. 9. •Design the class for relevance keeping in mind the specific interests and needs of the learner and engages the learner.
  10. 10. Engage the learner by using a variety of stimulus and media. • Upload video files, simulations, animations, games and interactive teaching modules to stimulate student interest and engage them . • This also helps cater to the different learning styles of the learners and hence differentiate instruction.
  11. 11. Introduce the topic beforehand • Helps judge the pre existing knowledge of the students. • Plan the instruction and remedial teaching if any, accordingly • The teacher gets more time in the classroom to interact with the students and develop creativity and critical thinking skills and undertake remedial teaching if required.
  12. 12. Differentiate instruction and cater to multiple intelligences • I have used a variety of media and instructional strategies to cater to the multiple intelligences and differentiate instruction. • Group work for the holiday homework gives students a choice of making an animation, a visual story, video, song, web site, online 3D energy saving house etc. • Research work included making a glossary of terms.
  13. 13. Self paced learning • Teacher can stay in touch with the students during holidays. • Students can work on their assignments and quizzes at their own pace. • Instructions when teacher and student may not be physically present at the same place at the same time.
  14. 14. Improve confidence of the students • • • • The confidence of the students can be built in the following ways: Multiple assignments and quizzes Challenging and meaningful activities like creating a crossword, prezi, animation, screenr etc Feedback and encouragement from teacher. Specially created badges for motivation
  15. 15. Develop and implement the lesson • Pre reading assignment uploaded for students reference before the class. • Pre knowledge testing helps the teacher identify problem areas and design remedial teaching. • Introduction to topic before the class gives a greater opportunity to the teacher to develop creativity and critical thinking skills in the students.
  16. 16. Assignments Assignments help the teacher in gauging the level of learning by the students and planning remedial teaching and differentiated instruction. My students attempted an assignment on numerical, built a glossary and answered a quiz.
  17. 17. Group work and research work for differentiated instruction
  18. 18. Connect with the students Notices and reminders can be put up. Students can seek clarifications . Shy students are more participative in an inline environment. Stay connected with the students in case either student or teacher in away from the class for some reason. Students can share interesting posts with the class.
  19. 19. Evaluation of learner Formal assessment • • • • • Testing of prior knowledge Assignments during and after the lesson. Quizzes (multiple choice, True/False, FIB etc) Project work that can also include group work. Progress report generated gives the teacher an overview of the class performance and participation. Informal assessment • Online Learning profile was developed by the students. • Observation of student involvement and response to assignments.
  20. 20. Evaluation (contd…) Feedback from teacher • Specific feedback to student responses and queries. • General feedback to the whole class. • Badges for encouragement. Feedback from students • Formal feedback through Polls • Informal feedback through observation and communicating with students
  21. 21. Evaluation of design • At he end of the lesson, it is important to evaluate the design, look for any flaws that need to be corrected or any improvements that need to be made. • One good indicator is the formal and informal evaluation and assessment of the students. • Polls on edmodo can also be used to survey student opinion.
  22. 22. 21st century learning skills developed Using edmodo blended with my classroom teaching fosters the following in my students: • ICT literacy • Collaborative problem solving • Facilitate self directed learning • Critical thinking skills • Communicating • Creativity
  23. 23. Value addition created to my work • Develop brain compatible instructions for the learner. • Use CT-driven ET for information delivery to develop and deliver multiple intelligences. • Make differentiated lesson plans to accommodate learning needs of learners with different learning styles. • Students understand the basic concepts and solve a variety of problems independently. • Develop critical thinking and higher order thinking skills in the students. • Develop 21st century skills in the students. • Better appreciation and confidence of the parents in the school.
