Placement Wrap Up – Lindsay

Jina and I had two teachers, so here are the two wrap ups:

Teacher: Mrs.Ben David
Subject: English
Description: Initially, Mrs.Ben David asked us to create a website for her to use as a class resource. We created a Google Site and then we put it aside to allow Mrs.Ben David to think of the most efficient uses. Afterwards, we met again and were asked to teach Mrs.Ben David how to use Prezi and to help her develop an assignment for her grade 10 English class.
Technology: Google sites, Prezi
Possible uses in other classes/subject areas: The website is specific to Mrs.Ben David and we did not create a specific assignment to go with it, so it would not be able to be used for other classes.

Teacher: Ms. Blejman-Kantor
Subject: Spanish
Technology used: Prezi, Jing, VoiceThread, Google docs
Description: Ms. Blejman-Kantor asked us to help her incorporate technology into her grade 11 Spanish ISP. Through our discussion, we wanted to identify which tools would not only be beneficial to the Spanish students for their isp, but a basic presentation introducing them to what they can create with web tools. Using Prezi, Jina and I found tutorial videos for Prezi, Jing, VoiceThread and Google docs. Once we taught the students how to use these tools, I used my resources from the ISP I completed last year for the grade 11 Spanish course to create a sample presentation for the new assignment. The web tool presentation is very basic and can be altered to be used in any class.
We sat down with Ms.Blejman-Kantor and altered the assignment and marking scheme, making it a very simple task: “You must use AT LEAST ONE Web Tool in your presentation, and you must use Jing or Voicethread to prerecord yourself reading one of the two poems you decide to focus on.
Possible uses in other classes/subject areas: The general how-to Prezi can be used in any class that needs the instruction, all that needs to happen is changing the title on the presentation.

Web Tools used: Google Sites, Prezi, Google Docs, Jing, Voicethread

Placement wrap up (Jina)

Teacher: Ms. Blejman- Kantor
Subject: Spanish
Technology used: prezi, jing, voice thread, google docs

Description: Ms. Blejman-Kantor asked us to help her incorporate technology into her grade 11 Spanish ISP. We made a presentation about all the  different web tools we learned in class and taught it to the class. We made the presentation on prezi, we gathered all the other web tools and put it into one prezi. In the prezi, we put tutorial videos of prezi, jing, voice thread and google docs. Lindsay also made a prezi presentation to show how the students could use prezi for their ISP. She made a presentation on her last year’s ISP on prezi and presented to the class.

Possible uses in other classes/subject areas: This can be used in other classes/subject areas for sure because a lot of our projects include presentation and these web tools are for presentations. Any other projects can incorporate these web tools in the projects.

Teacher: Mrs. Ben David
Subject: English
Technology used: Google sites, prezi

Description: Mrs. Ben David wanted us to make a website for her class and also teach her how to use prezi. We made a google web site for her and added her to be the owner so she can edit her website. Lindsay and I went to her office and helped her learn how to use prezi and helped her prepare a prezi presentation for her English class.

Possible uses in other classes/subject areas: This can be used in any other classes/subject areas because it’s just class website and any subject areas can make a website for their class.

Placement Wrap Up (Akiva and David)

Teacher: Dr Burt

Subject: Biology and Chemistry

Technology used: Powerpoint, google docs, diigo, jing, learn360

David and I were assigned to Dr. Burt for both chemistry and biology.  Our project was to present technology to the class that would help them with their ISPs, as well as any other assignments they have in the future.  We presented the technology in powerpoint format.  The technology we presented was:

-Diigo – for organizing their research and sharing the research with their group.

-Learn360 – for an alternate way of getting information when they cannot find what they are looking for on Google or Youtube.

-Jing – for more creative projects that require, for example, a tutorial.

-Google Docs – for an easier way to work on an assignment with a group.  Instead  of everyone sending their information to one person and that person putting the information together, the whole group can collectively work on the assignment.

The technology presented in these classes can be used in any class/subject area.  They are useful tools that make research easier and more organized, and make presentations more creative.  We encouraged the students we presented to to use these resources not only for their ISPs but for any assignment they get, in high school or post-secondary education.
