Building an online learning environment

  1. 1. Building an Online Learning Environment Donna Leahy October 2010
  2. 2. The Online Classroom • I thought this part of the course helped me, as an educator, to really think about how technology will affect my job in the future. • This course has allowed me to feel comfortable about change and how to successfully begin to implement that change in my classroom now.
  3. 3. My Online Classroom • I found edmodo to be a very useful tool. – It allows me to bring my third graders online in an appropriate and safe way. – The site is private and the students do not need email addresses to sign up. – Edmodo will provide my students with a great online learning experience.
  4. 4. Online Learning and Evaluation Tools • Rubrics – I liked looking at things from a different perspective. It was interesting to really focus on the desired outcome to create a rubric and then create the lesson. – This is something that I will implement more often in the future.
  5. 5. Online Learning and Evaluation Tools • I enjoyed exploring the different sites. The sites I found worked well for me were rubistar and rcampus. • Both sites were easy to navigate and I was able to find rubrics for a wide range of curriculum. • • •
  6. 6. Online Learning and Evaluation Tools • Lesson Plans – It was very useful to explore various sites where you could create you own lessons or use already create lessons. – I found lessonplanpage to useful. The site was easy to navigate and completely free. – –
  7. 7. Online Assessment Tools • Polls and Surveys – This section I felt was extremely useful. I used obsurvey once I figured out how it worked, I found it to be very useful. – This site allows me to create various types of polls and surveys that I can tailor to my curriculum. – f508ba4dae9f
  8. 8. Online Assessment Tools • Online Assessment: – After trying out a few sites, I found that yacapaca really fit my needs. – On this site I am able to preview online assessments quickly to determine if they are right for my students. – Once I have chosen assessments for my class, I am able to assign them to my class • As in edmodo, my students can sign up without email addresses. • e/quiz/1707/ • e/quiz/11746/
  9. 9. Online & New Media Solutions For Differentiated Instruction • I found new sites that can be incorporated into daily instruction on sites such as: glogster, linoit, and timetoast. • These sites provide the ability to do some completely new things with lessons, but also the ability to enhance already existing lessons and tie in technology. • •
  10. 10. Reflection • This course was extremely useful and worth while. I would definitely recommend this course others. Although some things I continue to fine tune, I have found many opportunities to integrate technology into the present classroom. This course has made the integration of technology into the classroom a realistic and attainable goal for me.
