Web2.0 that Works

NECC Presentation


Classroom Instruction That Works is a collection of effective strategies culled from a meta-analysis of decades of research on what works in classrooms to improve student learning and increase student achievement. This meta-analysis was conducted by Robert J. Marzano, Debra J. Pickering, and Jane E. Pollock. They combined these effective strategies into nine broad categories and Stephanie correlated them with Web 2.0 tools.

Hello there shoes.

Although I said in the video there we're 606 total photos, the actual number fell around 650. It took about 5.5-6 hours, 150 jumps, 60 sticky notes and 15 sheets of paper to make this lovely film.
Also shot on the even more fantastic D90.

6. Decide on a passion-based theme for your unit. (Skateboarding to teach landforms, simple machines, geometry, bios of skateboarders, geography of where they live, etc.)
7. Create a topical map and then a subject map (choose one or two areas to develop learning activities) Mind Mapping Tools
8. Decide on a kickoff activity -Arouse students’ curiosity and interest with stimulating introduction. Consider visual display of theme as well as introductory activities.
9. Create 2-3 learning activities that teach the objectives you selected from standards. Use Web 2.0 tools as the participatory medium. How will you evaluate mastery of the objectives? Make sure your activities are cross curricular in nature.
10. Decide on a culminating event. Make sure your event includes others and highlights student created artifacts.
