Get Ready for the Final Presentation

Standard

PART I: A FEW WORDS…

  • I hope the group talk and the peer feedback are helpful for you to see where you are in this long learning process about how to create a project-based learning lesson.  Remember, this is a learning process.  A learning process is not always fun, happy and successful.  However, only when you go through it will you remember the learning!
  • An interesting article– Why Johnny Can’t Write, and Why Employers Are Mad…I hope you will appreciate that you did a lot of writing in this class.  When you go for a job interview, remember to include your blog to show others your opinions about technology in education.

PART II: PRESENTATION NEXT WEEK

  • When will you know the order of the presentation?
    • Next Monday.  BecauseI don’t want anyone to take advantage of the order and have extra working hours.  Every group’s website should be complete and finished by Monday’s class.  The only bad thing about this is that some of you might need to dress up twice next week.  So EVERYONE COME TO CLASS WITH PRESENTATION DRESS CODE NEXT MONDAY.  If it turns out that you are not presenting on Monday, then you need to dress up again. Sorry about this.
  • So how about dress code?
    • I believe you know what a formal presentation should be like, right?
    • eveninggowns
    • dress code women what to wear in the office
    • anna_blog2
    • Male_dress_code_in_Western_culture
  • How long is the presentation?
    • You tell me, please.  Thanks!
  • What do we talk about in our presentation?
    • In the draft presentation, you talked about your design and how you develop the ideas.  However, in the formal presentation, you need to imagine that all of us ARE THE STUDENTS WHO MIGHT WANT TO TAKE THIS PROJECT WITH YOU.  So you are trying to recruit students.  You have the right to decide what to cover, which video should be played and which example should be pulled to explain the project better.
  • Any other question about the final presentation?

PART III: FINAL DATES

We have five class periods left and I only plan to use four of them.  Come to class next week (Nov. 18, 20 and 22) so that you can see every group project and evaluate them.  Then all of you need to come to class on Dec. 2, the last day of this class. We will select the best overall student for this class and have a potluck together.

I will let all of you present the LAD project draft first.  Save the last 5-10 minutes for me.

PART II: MEETING WITH JUSTINE

I need you to help me with two things.

2. I need to talk with you about your project, especially the technology part.  Remember, you need to get my approval for the technology use.  However, I only had a few group talk with me about the technology they are going to use in their project.  Let’s schedule a meeting to talk about this.  It can be before/after class or in class.  Please sign up a time to meet with me!

  • Keep working on the documentation and the LAD project.
  • Work on your last reflection– reflection on what you learned in EDIT 2000 this semester.

SHOULD

  • Work on Reflection 9 about SMARTBOARD (Due Nov. 15).

MUST

  • Finish your two-week documentation and post on your blog ASAP.

LAD Draft Presentation

Standard

Today and maybe part of Friday’s class will be the presentation time.  However, before the presentation, I want to spend a little bit time talking about the interactive whiteboard.

PART I: INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD

Based on the suggestions from Dr. Rieber in our program, there are four levels of using SMARTBoard.

Level 1: Using your finger as the mouse.
Open your PPTs, your Web sites, whatever, then walk over to the SMART Board and simply interact with them there.

Level 2: Using the Ink Layer to annotate or mark up the screen.
Pick up a pen to activate the Ink Layer. Think of it as a thin sheet of transparent film that has magically appeared and is covering the screen. Saving annotated or marked up pages is a good first use of the Notebook software.

LEVEL 3. Using SMART’s Notebook software to capture one or multiple pages of traditional whiteboard notes.
Imagine using a traditional whiteboard and wishing you could save the notes you or your group just took. And, just as one board fills up, imagine immediately having another whiteboard wheeled into the room for you to use. The SMART Notebook software gives you this ability.

LEVEL 4. Using SMART’s Notebook software to create presentations, lessons, and activities.
The SMART Notebook software is really a powerful authoring tool. Think of it as PowerPoint, but where individual objects can be manipulated while the presentation is running. Create activities and interactive multimedia by inserting text, graphics, photos, and video on as many slides (or pages) as you wish. Use the Notebook Gallery to access clip art and interactive ‘widgets’ (e.g. timers, games, and animated activities).

There are some activities sample in the Notebook software.  It is easier to edit these activities on your personal computer than on the real SMARTBoard.  It’s also easier to start making your teaching materials by using the templates in the Notebook software.  Therefore, try to play with some of the activities.  Or, you can go to SMART Exchange to see more examples and download some templates.

Here are some tutorial videos about using features in Smart Notebook.

  1. A 2-minute tutorial on using the Gallery in Notebook.
  2. 2-minute tutorial on Page Sorter in Notebook.
  3. A 2-minute tutorial on object animation in Notebook.

Or you can watch these tutorials made by the Smart company.

PART II: LAD PROJECT PRESENTATION

First of all, let’s talk about the documentation.  Last week, only a few of you updated the documentation.  I am not sure what the problem is…so let’s make everything clear.  PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTION YOU HAVE ABOUT DOCUMENTATION NOW.

  • Documentation is more like a to-do list.  You need to write about your feeling/thought about this LAD project.
  • Documentation is due on WEDNESDAY every week like all other reflections.  Since last week is a confusion, let’s make it a two-week documentation.  You need to write a documentation for last week and this week.
  • Documentation should be on your blog.  If you work as a team, it could be the same one on each of your blog.  However, you are welcome to add more personal thought/ideas//feedback.

Hope you all are ready for the presentation.  This is not a formal presentation, but please GIVE CANDID FEEDBACK TO YOUR PEERS!  This is the time to help your peers understand what a learner might have question/difficulty/challenge or what they might like about the project you designed.  So please make sure that you tell them your likes and dislikes.  Then they will have another 2 weeks to revise or modify the things.

Now let’s decide the order for the presentation.  What we are going to do is to play a game on SmartBoard. Let me explain the game to you.

FOR FRIDAY:

COULD

  • Keep working on the documentation and the LAD project.

SHOULD

  • Work on Reflection 9 about SMARTBOARd.

MUST

  • Present the draft for your LAD project– you must have at least something in every section!!

 

 

What You Need to Know about SmartBoard…

Standard

It is our pleasure and honor to have Emily Hodge with us today to talk about SmartBoard.  In today’s classrooms, interactive whiteboard seems to be an essential hardware.  However, what is the reality of it in 21st century learning and teaching?  Also, how do we use it?  Today Emily will give us a basic idea of using interactive whiteboard in class.  If you want to give it a try, feel free to download the software and try it in your LAD project.

FOR WEDNESDAY:

COULD

  • Work hard for the rest of this semester!

SHOULD

  • get back to normal student life!

MUST

  • Present the draft for your LAD project– you must have at least something in every section!!
