For my final project, I have 3 completed lesson plans, the fourth partially completed, and a good outline for the final 2 lessons.  I have learned so much in the development of this project-that I can actually use Schoology, that I can create lessons and add technology elements, my roles as an instructor, and that … Continue reading Final Project Post

Virtual Reality

If my module was able to be presented through Virtual Reality that might be able to solve my engagement issue!  My initial thoughts would be to present it in a game format.  Have the students create avatars for themselves and then navigate through different quests that teach them study strategies.  The study strategies could be … Continue reading Virtual Reality

Final Reflection

I think that I am able to demonstrate some effective electronic communication methods for instruction through the utilization of Schoology and blog posts.  The creation of the module was most effective in helping me achieve this level of communication because I actually created a course in Schoology and designed lesson plans.  Within these lesson plans … Continue reading Final Reflection

MOOCs

With what we’ve learned so far for online instruction, particularly with high school students, I see the MOOC as a lesson in what not to do.  The large number of students would be way too overwhelming for many adults, but especially for high school age students.  I also think the lack of accountability is a … Continue reading MOOCs

Comment on Self-Regulated Learners by kelcapt

I think for students to have a true mastery of self-regulated learning it has to start early-in Elementary school and a lot of this will come with how homework is tackled at home, which obviously is out of our control. Kids have to be taught early on to establish study spaces and routines, to use their planners that they are given and to check them every night. I know early on, parents are “required” to sign them and go over them with their students. I know I have already started with my 4th grader on establishing active study habits, not just “reading over” his notes. When he has a project, we go over the rubric and work on chunking the steps so he doesn’t feel overwhelmed and he can set a time line for himself. I model checking over work and help him stay organized with his binder. Now, this is NOT an easy task. I am human and tired and overwhelmed at times so super mom hw involvement doesn’t always happen. But, I think if these study habits can be ingrained early on, moving toward becoming self-regulated learners throughout high school is a much less daunting task.

Comment on SRL by kelcapt

I would love for it to grow to include more students. I definitely want to discuss maybe adding it into our freshman orientation we do in August…to let them know that it’s out there to try and get more involvement. Something I still need to figure out is since it is volunteer with no grade attached to it keeping students motivated and interested has been a challenge. Maybe I could partner with some English 9 classes to attach some accountability to it?

SRL

Self-regulation is defined as “the self directive process by which learners transform their mental abilities into academic skills.  Learning is viewed as an activity that students do for themselves in a proactive way rather than as a covert event that happens to them in reaction to teaching.”  I feel like this is right in line … Continue reading SRL
