Elementary Online Resources Elementary Online Resources Presentation Transcript

  • Web CT Project - Examples of Elementary On-Line Classroom Resources
  • A Few of the Many Benefits of an Online Classroom:
    • Teachers can view all student progress.
    • Teachers can provide information to parents.
    • The classroom is secure. (Username/Password)
    • Students can log on and work at home.
    • Interactive (Student/Teacher/Parent).
    • Vast possibilities (Technology integration, resource based learning, journal writing, quiz and test development [marking], audio dictations, etc.)
  • The Main Index Page
    • This is the entrance page.
    • Your classes are listed here .
    • Any new information for each class is also listed here.
  • The Classroom Main Page
    • This page lists all of the different components of the classroom.
    • There are 3 navigation areas: the left bar (course menu), the top bar (bread crumbs) and the icons (pictures).
  • A Typical Unit Layout:
    • Each unit has a table of contents.
    • You can always add, remove or hide sections of the table of contents.
  • Assignments
    • This area allows the teacher to post actual assignments for the students. This can include anything from an essay to a math worksheet.
    • These assignments can be handed in using Web CT and the teacher can then assign a grade and post it to the student’s Web CT classroom.
    • Marks and teacher comments are always saved in the classroom.
  • The Bulletin Board
    • This area allows teachers and students to communicate in an open discussion.
    • Only those enrolled in each specific online classroom can see what is posted here.
  • Web CT Email
    • This email program is very secure.
    • Students may only email other students enrolled in the online classroom.
    • Each email sent by a student is copied to the teacher as well.
  • The Calendar
    • This allows teachers and students to post important dates.
    • Information can be posted publicly to all enrolled in the classroom or privately so that only the user can see the entries.
  • Chat room/Whiteboard
    • Chat rooms allow student discussions. This can be done from home or in the the computer lab setting.
    • Communication occurs instantaneously.
    • Chats can be logged and read by the teacher.
    • The whiteboard is a drawing tool that can be used by teachers and students. Like the chat room, the drawings can be changed instantaneously and can also be saved for future use.
  • My Progress/Resume Course
    • “ My Progress” lets students see what they have covered in the classroom material.
    • “ Resume Course” allows students to return to the exact spot they previously left off.
