The objective of this technology immersion experience is to enable participants to begin thinking about and planning technology infused lessons for their students. We will spend a significant portion of time over the next two days involved in lesson planning. On Thursday afternoon each teacher will be expected to give a three minute presentation on a lesson that they have prepared for next year.
Project components will include:
- A lesson plan that includes the production of a technology project as a portion of your instructional sequence – use form provided by the IT department appropriate for your grade level
- An instruction sheet for students – don’t expect your students to figure out your expectations on their own. Prepare any/all resources that they might need to complete their project. Resources that you may need to create may include a RAFT sheet, a rubric, or writing prompts for your blog. If you choose to create a webquest, please use the 1 page MS Word format provided on the San Deigo State Webquest page.
- A sample product to show your students – since your students may not have ever done a project like yours, you’ll need to create a sample for students to refer to so that they have an idea of what they will be trying to create.
Your lesson must make use of two of the applications that we have discussed:
- MS Powerpoint
- MS Publisher
- MS Word
- Movie Maker
- Story Boards
- Video Cameras
- Digital Cameras
- Internet Search Strategies
