How I use learning resources in my classroom

  1. 1. How do I use digital resources from different countries Teija Jormanainen Pielisjoen koulu, Joensuu, Fi
  2. 2. o The subject I teach, o The age of the students, o The digital resource itself. The way I use digital resources depends on
  3. 3. The main aim in using them is  To get the up to date information,  To get more information than what the textbooks can give,  To motivate and inspire the students.
  4. 4. Digital resources can be found  Search engines like Google,  Different portals like LRE and OER teacher Network,  National publishers, public sector, broadcasters, the Ministry of Education,  The colleagues.
  5. 5. The basis for choosing the resources  The content is up-to-date,  The content matches the grade level of the students,  The content of the resource is reliable,  The content of the resource is “adaptable to my needs”,  The content of the resource motivates the students.
  6. 6. The main ways I use the sources are  When preparing for the lessons,  In the classroom to motivate the students,  To give more information about the topic to the students,  The students use them in classrooms as part of their assignments,  As a source for homework.
  7. 7. I use the digital resources in teaching in the following way (1):  The resource as a whole:  http://celebrate.ls.no/English/Animations/Science/drivhus_eng.swf  Dividing the resources into smaller pieces, e.g.:  http://www.oulu.fi/northnature/english/englanti/talvihaku.html  http://www.ahven.net/opetusmateriaali/talouskalalajit/kalat/kuha.html  http://www.abpischools.org.uk/page/modules/hormones/horm2.cfm? coSiteNavigation_allTopic=1  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/animations/  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/helicorders.php
  8. 8. I use the digital resources in teaching in the following way (2)  Video clips or animations as a demonstration  http://nobelprize.org/educational/medicine/malaria/parasite.html  http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/blueplanet/webs/flash/weboflife.swf  Create assignments for students on the basis of the given resources
  9. 9. I use the digital resources in teaching in the following way(3)  For students to test their knowledge  http://nobelprize.org/educational/medicine/landsteiner/landsteiner.html  http://www.freepoverty.com/  Digital sources as a basis for our discussions  http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/addiction/drugs/mouse.html  http://www.poodwaddle.com/worldclock.swf
  10. 10. The students using the Internet
  11. 11. The students don’t usually pay attention to:  Reliability  Topicality  Copy rights
  12. 12. ” The link bank” First, my students and I talk about the features of good digital resources and then we make a list of those features We collect digital sources based on the agreed features and put the chosen resources in one place (e.g. Moodle).
  13. 13. The link bank: students’ list of the features of good resources  Reliable  Informative  Links to other pages  Safe, no viruses  Free  Up-to date  Clear and easy to read  Uses good pictures and flash animations  Pages function well
  14. 14. The link bank: students evaluate the following features of the resources  Contents  Realibility  Topicality  Copyrights  Appearance
  15. 15. How the students use the resources in the link bank:  They use them in their tasks and assignments  When presenting the task to the rest of the class , they show the digital resources they have used.  They tell why they have used the sources, and whether the resources match the features of good resources
  16. 16. The portals I mainly use  LRE http://lreforschools.eun.org  eQnet Unilearn: http://unilearning.eu  OER Teacher network http://oertn.eun.org  Finnish portals
  17. 17. The benefits of using these portals  A lot of the good digital resources  It is time saving  I find resources that I maybe never would have found otherwise  I don’t have to think about the copy rights  Easy and quick to use
