In doing so, students are able to provide immediate feedback to their peers or carry out real-time discussions using Linoit.
ICT ToolsValue-add of ICT Tools Teachers of other disciplines can also use this tool to similarly encourage collaborative and self-directed learning amongst their students. Monitoring of student progress is also made simple by embedding the Prezi presentations on a blog space!
Preparation for ICT Lesson Blog created for the Prezi presentation and Linoit to be embedded so that students can give feedback to their peers’ works using the virtual gallery work. Grouping of students Registration of accounts for Prezi Leader to create account and send the link to teacher
Scaffolding Students are taught how to use online presentation tool Prezi Examples of youtube videos which students can include in their presentation.
Effective LearningHow do we monitor the effectiveness oflearning? Virtual“Gallery Walk” on blog. The Prezi is embedded together with Linoit on the blog and the students can post their comments on the 2-day itinerary using Linoit. Teacher has overview of all presentations on the blog and can intervene if groups are not on task.
Impact – Did your students learn better? As the students did the gallery work – the students share their knowledge of the various tourist attractions in Singapore. Learning is extended beyond the classroom as they explore other attractions which they are not familiar with prior to the lessons The lesson can be extended to presentation of other issues e.g inquiry into why people still stay in areas threatened by volcanic eruptions such as Mt Merapi.
