Final Projects 2nd2009

Page history last edited by danilyra 14 years, 3 months ago



We've gone far, from Web2.0 to digital storytelling with stops in the world of social bookmarking, photo sharing and RSS. Now, it's time to link it all together.


The Wikisphere will be our space to develop, enhance and share our WebTools4Educators final project. In fact, we've been exploring the possibilities for wikis in an educational setting. However, wikis are also a wonderful tool for project development, brainstorming, as well as for a Personal Learning Environment, as Michele Martin points out on her blog post about wikis as personal spaces .





Guidelines for you Final Project


You'll prepare a lesson plan based on your classroom reality incorporating a web tool to it,or a learner's activity which will be held in an online space. It might be a lesson you've already taught and you think you could give a different digital perspective, or it could be a lesson you're planning to teach.


Think of...

learners as collaborators

learners as active participants in the learning process

a web tool or online space that triggers inquiry, critical thinking, engagement




where you are going to work on your final project. On your own wiki space, or here, our course wiki, by creating a new page?

if you want to work individually or with a group of educators

specific learning goals for your lessonplan


Have in mind...


the revised Bloom's taxonomy that adds digital approaches to it.









You'll receive peer and your moderator's feedback in these areas with the following criteria:

Content and Tech Integration - The project's technology use effectively supports and links with the chosen content. It affords new possibilities for learning in the 21st century. The project's uses of technology directly support for student learning. The project's use of technology is appropriate for the medium while helping students reach identified learning objectives. The choice of technology is age appropriate and supports different learning styles and abilities.

Ethical Issues - The digital resources are properly credited when it is the case.

Lesson Plan Design - The lesson plan is complete, goes into depth as appropriate. It provides opportunities for co-learning. Students explore concepts as active participants of the learning process. The task guidelines reflect the overall curricular goals, provide clear directions, and offer digital resources.

Role of the Teacher - The lesson plan enhances the role of the teacher  as a facilitator of student learning and experiences. The teacher actively explores and learns with the students.

Assessment - Lesson plan provides ways of students' reflection on their own experiences and learning.
