I do find unit plan assignments rather more interesting than a 2000 word essay but im starting to get a bit stressed with the due date looming!!
…SO after ploughing away all day on my Unit Plan and getting rather stuck half way through i have had a break through and am doing a bit of an overhaul. I was very impressed with Splash ABC resources and their follow on activities integration of ICTs. They are not just guiding teachers to watch a clip with the class then reflect with a direct question – answer session … no… they are providing teachers with opportunities for students to show their learning and understanding through the use of ICTs. For example suggesting students provide their answers through the use of word clouds like Wordle, or depict the journey of the first fleet by using an online mapping tool like Google maps or Scribble maps – very up to date and relevant i thought – not the old ABC i remember back in the old school yard
