What do I want from my M Ed – Online Innovation and Design?
Part I: I want to learn the skills I need to build an interactive, personalized learning platform for my students like Smart Sparrow. This LMS is so cool! It is like a flow chart of activities of varying difficulty. As students complete one level their scores are immediately recorded and they are passed along to a scaffolded page of additional practice. Grading eats up so much of my time, so using that time to create sounds like a much better plan.
Part II: I would love to learn more about sketchnotes. Digital note-taking sounds like a great way to get my history students more engaged, but how do I assess it? How do they save and organize their notes? How do I make sure they have picked up on the details that I am going to include on a test later?
Part III: I want to know more about the ISTE. I wandered across their website and have seen some very interesting articles. I don’t imagine that I will have any “extra” internet browsing time to look at their website in the upcoming weeks, but I have bookmarked it for sure! Are you a member? Should I become one?
