    Not a speciic lesson although I have seen CPS’s in use for Pre & Post testing. Hopefully, the teacher looked at the standards and how to assess when doing the lessson plan! I think motivation comes also from the “clickers being fun” although I worry about how long that will last – especailly when evaulating the cost.

    Technology could be used as the “hook’ for motivation. Many reachers would see this as a “new” idea, even if familiar with MHunter. Yet if we think about this idea, kids would find this approach “natural” be cause of where they are with technology.

    The technolgy could/would model what the students will be expected to do. (PS: this means teacher would have to be a proficient user)

    Then if the assessment is technology-based, the students better understand how what they will learn, will be USED.

    Project: The Crucible & Wikis
    AIS English 10

    Technology was used in the following ways:

    *Anticipatory Set/Hook: Show kids different wikis and tell they they are going to get to create their own and edit one another’s pages

    *Teaching – Input: We did a brief (15 min) demonstration in class on wikis and how to edit them

    *Teaching – Modeling: Demo and the teacher showed them that she created the first few pages of the wiki

    *Teaching – Direction Giving: Teacher walked the students through the project and kept a discussion going while they edited their respective pages

    *Guided Practice: Teacher logs in and comments on the students’ progress

    *Closure: After the pages have been created/edited, the teacher beings a class discussion about The Crucible

    *Independent Practice: The students read the next section of The Crucible and create and edit wiki pages for homework.

    Even though we greatly utilized technology for this project, I don’t know if it closely aligned with the school’s goals. I never asked what they were and the teacher never commented about the goals. I was only told that the students were having a hard time understanding the play and that the teacher was looking for an alternative to just class discussions and homework.

    Speadsheet Project 2: Christmas shopping with a budget

    Technology was used in most (if not all) of Hunter’s roles in this project (as it was an introdutory lesson on how to do basic formulas on spreadsheets as well as bassic terminology).

    The goal now is to then take these skills and apply it to other work/projects that relate to the core curriculum.
