  22. 22. Discussion<br />Let’s reflect on the activity.<br />Were you engaged in higher-order thinking?<br />What does the finished project mean to you?<br />
  23. 23. Sharing<br />What are some possible ways to assess students’ understanding of the content with this kind of activity?<br />Share how you will implement this.<br />
  24. 24. Let’s Be Real<br />Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of assessing students’ mastery using this type of technology.<br />
  25. 25. Practical Tips<br />Consider asking students to bring digital cameras from home.<br />Perhaps students can use the cameras on their cell phones.<br />This works well as a small group activity making it possible for students to share cameras.<br />Remember that some cameras have special equipment (USB wire, USB drive, card reader, etc.) to move the photos to a computer.<br />

  27. 27. Although teachers may not be comfortable using technology it is important to consider allowing students to use it to communicate their understanding as they are often more naturally able to more fully express themselves with digital media.<br />
