Authentic scenario: Australian and Japanese society
Task (their goal): “Sugaku” Math Quiz competition!
Authentic products: ClassMarker, Wikis, Youtube,
Podcast, Wikipedia
1. <ICTs>
Students have extra time somewhere at the early of the term to learn how to use ICT technologies (Wiki's, Blogs, Youtube, Class Marker, e-mail and Skype)
>> (30-40min x 3 lessons) depends on how students interpret the new technologies
2. Make some groups (2OZ & 2Jap students for each group)
>> they will work together all through the term (Online with Wiki's, Blogs, and e-mail)
- Every student is required to discuss or ask Qs with students each other or LMs on Wiki's anything about their project: how to use ICTs, Maths, Jap and Eng.
(should ask Qs: 1. within their group, 2. with other groups, 3. to LMs)
- Students should establish own groups' page on Wiki, also check
and read other groups' page and everyone's page which is
managed by LMs.
>> It will be assessed
** Learning Managers (LMs) (both in Aus and Jap) need to make the group fairly (Mixed level of Maths, Jap and Eng). Also LMs make sure whether every group are on a right track (both F2F & online: checking Wiki's or Blogs)
5. Create Math Quizzes using ClassMarker in 1 week and
submit (post) it to Wikis' everyone's page (10 Quizzes)
>> It will be assessed (W7) (if students want, they can write feedback for each quiz, but it is not assessed)
6. Solve the Maths Quizzes of other groups except their own Quizzes in 1 week. (W8)
>> it will be assessed
7. The solution will be posted on Wikis' everyone's page. Students must take a look it and discuss on Skype, and Wiki's or Blogs. After that, they will receive a feedback form LMs.
- Communicate (share the idea, teaching students-students of the equation or the use of ICTs, and get to know each other: just chatting) with blog or WIKIs all the time
- 5W to have declarative knowledge (in the Math, Jap and Eng lessons)
Relate : Enhance students knowledge of both language (Japanese & English) and Math and engage them (to be motivated in their learning)
Create : Make math quiz questions using ClassMarker
Donate : Try the "Sugaku" (Math) Quiz Competition within group (2 OZ students & 2 Jap stu) using ClassMarker to answer the question and WIKIs to share and modify the idea. After the submission, provide a feedback from other group and teachers.
- Communicate on Skype with students in another country (Australia-Japan) to share about the Math Quizzes
