  69. 69. Storytelling Development • Pre-select learning objectives • Based on learning objectives, create rubric for grading (“must include X and Y story/prosodic elements,” “must be about topic X or Y,” etc.) • Assigns students a topic and a timeframe to complete the assignment • Students produce and post 2–5 min vlogs • Arrange immediate feedback loop Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham
  70. 70. “Reading” Comprehension • Pre-select learning objectives • Based on learning objectives, create rubric for grading (“must include X and Y linguistic elements,” “must demonstrate X and Y prosodic attributes,” etc.) • Teacher produces story (targeting specific linguistic or prosodic aspects) • Students retell/create the story in a vlog • Arrange immediate feedback loop Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham

  73. 73. • allows for broad creativity within specifications of the assignment • less overhead (students produce artifacts, not teachers) • allows teachers to view micro/macro trends (what is consistently accurate/not accurate) • focuses teachers on scaffolding, not fingerpointing • builds higher level functional learning Cognition and Social Media: Blended Learning Strategies in the ASL Classroom ©2009 Doug Stringham
