Schedule technology mini-lessons, sign-up for technology focus lessons, request class project collaboration.

Request Class Project Tech Support

See me, email me, copy and insert your own wiki page, fill out a form, just communicate with your media tech center support. Check out the Technology Focus Schedule below and sign up to share in the technology focus opportunity, request a Class Project Collaboration page, or request a Technology Focus lesson based on your specific needs.

Class Project Collaboration

The thought here is to provide a format to request help or to develop your own research pathfinders for class projects. Research pathfinders are directives to guide the student to go beyond a simple internet search to pursue quality information and to produce quality work. The Information Literacy Standards, "to assess, evaluate and use information well, and to develop an independent learner who pursues, appreciates, and strives for excellence in the process of information seeking and knowledge generation" are all largely developed with these simple directive tools. It's a bonus to have a central depository for rubrics, guidelines, and checkpoints necessary for the student to accomplish the project goals.

Class Project Collaboration Template

Use the following template to build or request Class Project Technology Wiki Pages. Your class project will be assembled on its own page in the Student Technology Wiki, with a link to it from the Student Resource Website. You can make your own by copying and creating a page in the Student Wiki, here, or shoot me an email and I can put it up for you. You'll need to let me know to add a link on the student website. Another option is to create your own Wikispace(s). You could have a separate wiki for each course, or just a page for each in one wiki; whatever makes sense to you. The Class Project pages could then be located on your space.

For Halo, Gaming, and etc, need clear and enforcable policy guidelines. Which games are acceptable, Do we load them on system? how about a permission slip from parents that allows access to certain games. they aren't supposed to load stuff, that's pretty standard. ( how does that work with Web 2.0 development tools.)

How about 300 words with pros and cons for Halo specifically and gaming in general. Good stuff about why World of Warcraft is educational. any game building tools they could play with instead?
