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.
