Description

The purpose of this project is to illustrate a powerful strategy for having students communicate their understanding of a concept or topic by tapping into their desire to create their own content. For this project you will select a topic or concept that you teach and model the creating mind for your student by developing a "glog" that can be used an instructional tool. You will use Glogster, a free Web 2.0 tool, to complete this project. The project will integrate content from Discovery Education streaming via the assignment builder, quiz builder and/or writing prompt builder.

Requirements and Deliverables

  • At least one Discovery Education streaming builder (Assignment, Quiz or Writing Prompt) that integrates video content. You will link to the builder from your glog.
  • At least one Discovery Education streaming builder (Assignment, Quiz or Writing Prompt) that is used as an assessment component. You will link to the builder from your glog.
  • At least two hyperlinks to external websites.
  • At least two still images (original or from a copyright-approved source)
  • Credits/Citations
