    • Learning Targets:
    • Always begin with a focus on the targeted learning.
    • Students with a clear idea of where the learning is going are able to set goals and determine a path to success.
    • Today’s Learning Targets:
    • We will look at several ways in which students can create media to be used for future instruction.
    • We will look at the benefits of teaching this way.
    • Several resources will be shared.
  • 4.
    • Rationale:
      • Motivation: Rigorous challenges involving media and technology motivate students to achieve at a higher level.
      • Student Culture: Students “play” with these tools outside of class. This makes a great connection.
      • Synthesis: Students synthesize information from several sources including text, video, pictures and sound to put together a finished product.
      • Collaboration: Students are working together to solve real problems.
      • Reciprocal Teaching: Students learning from each other
      • Assessment: Great opportunity to assess conceptual understanding.
      • Teacher as Learner: Teacher models learning by being a risk taker and trying new things.
  • 5.
    • Dabbler, Sampler, Browser
      • New ideas
      • Go back and find as many ways as possible to share these tools with your students.
      • Students then have the power and practice in choosing the best tool for the teaching.
      • Cure for paralysis caused by high stakes tests.
      • Be creative! Do what you love.

    • Only One Computer?
    • Jigsaw presentations: each person is responsible for one piece of a presentation. The pieces are then combined for a final class project. Kits really help in this situation because students don’t have to spend a lot of time on the computer finding the media. They can have their plan ready to go and then they just have to input it in the computer.
      • Mountain School Vocabulary (PowerPoint)
      • Oregon Trail (MovieMaker) Kit
      • Whiteboard Movie s Mary Moore
      • Table Teaching
      • Podcast created with different sections. Each group does their section separately and then they are put together into one show.
      • Other ideas… Each group or person is responsible for adding one question to a PowerPoint content review.
