Well done, Jac!
This is a great project which really shows how you’ve tried out a number of tools and reflected on how well they worked. It’s not always easy, but by taking risks and trying out new ideas everyone can grow!
You’re right that commenting on Google docs doesn’t always work. Like everything, it needs guidance and explicit teaching. We’re still working towards that, but I’m hoping that by pairing up with a class […]
It’s always hard to factor in real collaboration but if you start small and collaborate with classes in your team, it should make it easier.
While reflecting on how I’m embedding technology in my classroom earlier in the COETAIL course, I realized that I needed to vamp up collaboration to fully transform learning. While we are striving for the <a title="Transformation" […]
It was great to finally meet up with you at the NESA conference in April too. I’m glad that you got to meet Marcello and other COETAILers, and it was great to meet Grant Rolls too. It’s been wonderful […]
Your project really did motivate all of us to get the ball rolling with our projects (Pardon the pun!). Your video was professionally made and the idea of your e-portfolios and the reflections that […]
I completely understand that you have to set boundaries. We all have to draw lines and prioritize to have balance in our lives. As teachers it’s important too, as there are just so many things we […]
It’s great to see what you’re doing with your Kindergarten class, as I know it’s challenging to find appropriate tools to use in class. Your digital storyboard looks great and could be a great tool for us […]
Water is Precious
An Integrated Inquiry Unit
Our water unit and the COETAIL course are coming to an end. It’s been a busy time, full of success, a little stress and a huge amount of learning. We’ve spent a great […]
In our water inquiry unit, we worked on weaving together a number of subjects: reading, writing, science and social studies, and embedding technology at the same time.
We started by […]
The kids had a great time making these and really did well in weaving together media. We’ll keep on working on credits but it’s already amazing how often they talk about copyright in other contexts […]
So, can Grade 4s mash-it up?
They sure can! OK, the results and skills were varied, but the majority of students met the standards, and some even raised the bar. What the students in my class proved is that Grade […]
You’re welcome, Vivian. Water is becoming more and more precious everywhere in the world.
Unit of Inquiry: Water is Precious
While embedding technology in an authentic way is the main focus of the COETAIL final project, this was an ideal opportunity to create a unit that integrates core subjects and […]
Influence Visual Literacy Project
As a final project in our Grade 4 Influence unit, I decided it was time to delve in and try out a mash-up. Although this was something I had hoped to try out with my students at […]
I’m interested in seeing what you create with Edmodo as I haven’t used it yet. I’m very excited about connecting with your class and vamping up our social network this semester. We’re looking forward to […]
Unit of Inquiry: Water is Precious
I’m excited to have an opportunity to create an authentic unit that integrates a number of core subjects and provides opportunities to link to IS Bangkok‘s Definition of […]
Cheryl Terry commented on the post, Management and Strategies for use of Devices in the Classroom, on the site Movin' Forward 5 months, 1 week ago
I really liked the 5 minute warning you give at the end of the lesson. I try to do something similar but time sometimes gets away from me, so I like the 5 min and 1 min warning and the idea of having the […]
I agree with you that we have to be careful ‘policing’ technology. I teach elementary so it’s a little different for me and I have very few problems, but if we motivate students then I think most […]
Laptops and using technology in the classroom are all the rage. But how can we effectively manage our technological devices ?
Creating an effective classroom climate where students feel safe and act […]
