Thinking like a teacher again

We’ll start today by showing any late straggler movies that want to be seen.  I really enjoyed watching movies last time, and I look forward to more of you creativity.  We’ll also talk briefly about your comments on wallwisher about the Sir Robinson TED talk.

Today is the moment we’ve all been waiting for: TLAT #2. If you haven’t guessed by now, this project will focus on the NETS standards for creativity and innovation. As a reminder, here’s our focus:

Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. Students:

  • apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes.
  • create original works as a means of personal or group expression.
  • use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.
  • identify trends and forecast possibilities.

Here’s the second TLAT design guide, and we’ll be using the same class rolls we used for the first project. Don’t forget to save a copy of the design guide in Googledocs so you can edit it. As you’ll notice, you’ll need to do some brainstorming. We looked briefly at a few days ago, but now it’s time to really use it to generate some thinking. You may want to use some of the tools from two weeks ago, so be ready for exploration. Today’s goal? Finish Section 1 of the TLAT design guide. Here’s the schedule for the next few days:

  • Monday 03/28 – TLAT #2 Section 1
  • Wednesday 03/30 – TLAT #2 Sections 2 and 3
  • Friday 04/01 – Sections 4 and 5
  • Monday 04/04 – Due at the beginning of class, embedded in your online portfolio (website)

Finish Section 1 of your TLAT. We’ll be moving on to Section 2 and 3 on Wednesday.

If you get done early, begin your chapter six reading guide.  It’s due next Monday.
