How can technology be used most effectively to support and assess student learning?
Now that I have totally revamped my unit plan and switched gears entirely (from fruit to philosophy!), and now that I have started my student sample...I think technology is going to work very effectively for the unit. I chose to develop blogs for the student products and with the magic of Google reader, I can instantly check updated blogs and leave comments for my students. This is why I love the tech part: it's so fast. I am the type who likes feedback right away and that can only happen if the person giving me feedback is fully engaged in what I have presented. The blogs allow me to see immediately what work has been accomplished and to give immediate feedback.
I am still toying with the "final: blog--I think it may be a blogspot with team members, so everyone can post to one place. I also need to nail down exactly what is in the final blog--bilingual entries? Photos? Video? Audio? It's a lot to think about. I think the blog can handle it though.
