In reading through the ISTE Standards for Teachers I have found that there are bits of each I would like to become more knowledgeable in and more proficient in. For this assignment we are asked to pick two that we feel the most interested in working on. My GAME plan will be used on Standard 1 d. and standard 2.d.
1d. says the teacher will model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students colleagues and others in face to face virtual environments. My goal is to find teachers within my school as well as outside my area to collaborate with and get ideas for my classroom and to show students other places in the world and how they learn by meeting with them in a virtual classroom. The ways to achieve this will be to go online and find other schools that would be interested in doing this kind of project. I will monitor the reactions and the learning of myself and the students to see if this is something that needs to continue and last my evaluation will be on how many more can I find because I know this will be a great time for the students and a great learning opportunity for all of us.
2d. Provide students with multiple and varied formative and summative assessments aligned with content and technology standards and use resulting data to inform learning and teaching. Goal is to find different ways to assess students work and to give them different ways to show they know the content of the lesson. To achieve this I will need to go online to look for different ways to assess students that others have used and also to look at the lesson and see how many different ways it can be assessed and maybe even let the students find ways to assess their own work. To monitor this there are some technology programs such as MOODLE that can be used by teachers to let students take test, post comments, download work to show how they are doing. I will evaluate if this is successful for all students when I see how many use the technology given and see what works best for the students.
On a side note I am sorry this was not posted by Wed. but I am taking two classes at one time and just got confused on the posting dates. Have a great week.
