  2. 2. Types of resources
  3. 3. Methods of Teaching <ul><li>Present </li></ul><ul><li>Guide </li></ul><ul><li>Active Learning </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative </li></ul><ul><li>Problem-based </li></ul><ul><li>Role Play </li></ul>

  5. 5. Constructivist Learning on the Web -Wilson, Lowry <ul><ul><ul><li>Where is the meaning being constructed? (p. 81) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web-based learning must be evaluated in the context of its use (p. 82) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We must organize learning environments and activities that include opportunities for: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>acquiring basic skills, knowledge, and conceptual understanding </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>not as isolated dimensions of intellectual activity, but as contributions to students’ development of strong identities as individual learners </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>and as more effective participants in the meaningful social practices of their learning communities in schools and elsewhere in their lives (p. 82) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>

  9. 9. <ul><li>Visit wiki to explore Pathfinders and 5 slam dunk lessons </li></ul><ul><li>Where are we on Bloom’s Taxonomy with these types of resources/this use of the Internet? </li></ul>
  10. 10. WebQuests An inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the Internet. -K. Schrock
  11. 11. A REAL WebQuest <ul><li>Is wrapped around a doable and interesting real-world task. </li></ul><ul><li>Requires higher level thinking. This includes synthesis, analysis, problem-solving, creativity and judgment. </li></ul><ul><li>Makes good use of the web. </li></ul><ul><li>Isn't a research report or a step-by-step science or math procedure. Having learners simply distilling web sites and making a presentation about them isn't enough. </li></ul><ul><li>Isn't just a series of web-based experiences - there is a REAL purpose. </li></ul><ul><li>If it doesn't require higher level thinking skills, it isn't a WebQuest! </li></ul>
  12. 12. View K. Schrock’s PPT <ul><li> </li></ul>
  13. 13. Explore WebQuests <ul><li>Find one to “dissect”. </li></ul><ul><li>How can Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy be applied? Can you make any suggestions for improvement to take this task higher on Bloom’s? </li></ul>
  14. 14. While creating any Internet-based learning experience , think about these questions… <ul><li>What are my curriculum objectives? </li></ul><ul><li>How can I use the Internet as a tool to enhance the lesson? (do something you couldn’t do without the computer) </li></ul><ul><li>Is this going to be a learning experience that takes advantage of the uniqueness of the Internet? (…not just an “activity” without higher-level thinking) </li></ul>
  15. 15. Your Web-based Lesson <ul><li>What is the goal for your web-based lesson? </li></ul><ul><li>How will you apply Bloom’s Taxonomy? </li></ul>
  16. 16. Storyboard <ul><li>A storyboard is a visual plan for your website. It usually consists of a series of pages that include a rough sketch outlining the content, navigation, and design elements of your website </li></ul>
