Transforming learning through global collaboration
Within the realm of scientific inquiry, a research model emerged in the Enlightenment which held that commonly held beliefs, referred to as paradigms, are always subject to testing.

This paradigm shift applies to every field of natural science, and also manifests itself in many social sciences such as education.
In the case of teaching, we have learned how an…Continue

To review from Challenge 10, here is the choice project I created:
In honor of Read Across America week, my project plan is going to be centered on my very favorite children's book author, Dr. Seuss. I am a huge fan of Dr. Seuss and I think there are so many lessons that can be learned from each of his books. Here is how the plan will go:
The students will be given a list of Dr. Seuss book titles in advance. They will have access to them in my personal…Continue

For Challenge 11, we were asked to align the ISTE standards with assignment we blogged about in Challenge 10. In Challenge 10, I discussed how students where allowed to choose between different strategies in addition and subtraction. Aligning the ISTE standards where not difficult to the assignment previously mentioned. The ISTE standard Creative and Innovation were met because on the program more StarFall, under…Continue

In Challenge 10, my students were given a choice of using adjectives to describe themselves. They could choose to create a wall cloud using abcya.com or create an acrostic with their name. Most of my students chose the word cloud activity. I have aligned them with CCSS Language Standards for grade 2 and technology standards for grades K-2, as well as ISTE Standards. I thought this activity went really well, and my students seemed to enjoy doing something other than a…Continue

For Challenge 10, I developed a plan for first grade students to choose which two activities they would like to complete during a unit on weather. After each choice is noted the Alabama Course of Study Standard in science that correlates with each activity. (I listed only science here because that is specific to what I teach, but it also meets many language arts standards as well).
The choices include:

For this challenge we were to revise and align our project with standards. I feel that my student choice project meets many Alabama Course of Study standards as well as technology standards.
As a revision/extension to this All About Me lesson, the students and I would focus on the tasks as well as focusing on language arts. As the students share documents and write their blogs, we will focus on appropriate writing and speaking skills. Blogs will be read and edited if…Continue

I aligned my project last week to the Alabama Course of Study Standards. This project goes along with Alabama history and our field trip to Montgomery. Adding the Prezi option to the project choices this year allows me to include Technology Education Standard 10 in the group of standards covered with the activity. One way I would revise the project is to make sure and allow plenty of time for the students to practice and share their projects. By doing this, I can incorporate more ELA…Continue
