What’s a Moodle?An Interactive Class websiteA modern way to deliver information to studentsin a way they can relate toAn EASY way for teachers to get immediatefeedbackBut most importantlyA safe place for students to learn, create theirown content, and share that content with eachother and their teacher
Why does it work?Because kids are already online and surprisingly,They want something to do while they’re there.Online assignments don’t feel like “school”
And…They WANT to be creativeThey WANT to manipulate informationThey WANT to show off what they’ve doneThey WANT to connect with teachers in amodern wayMoodle allows them to do that in a SAFE andCONTROLLED environment
Finally…Technology allows for those kids who may go“unnoticed” to thrive.It also allows them to take an active role in theireducation.
This sounds complicated.It’s not.In fact, it’s incredibly simple once you get going.The kids already know how to do almosteverything in the Moodle. It’s the teachers whoare intimidated.
So why should I ask myteachers to spend timelearning this program?
Because if your teachersare getting comfortable….Then your students are getting bored
Keep in mind…They’re not “students”, they’re people
