Reflection . So far.......

Reflection on Remix #4 – Freshman, Technology, Passwords and Baby Steps

After much thought and careful planning, I decided to jump right in and make some changes in one class where I am a co-teacher.  The other teacher and I have a great working relationship and she was on board right away.  The class is a ninth grade World Studies class with eighteen students, fifteen boys and three girls.  Six of the students are identified students and four students are at risk.  Needless to say this class is a daily challenge for both teachers.  We have tried many different techniques with them and we continue to have some students who are not engaged in the lessons.  Based on some of the things I learned in a class, I made some changes for the World War I unit.  Following three days of lecture, note taking and class discussion as well as hands on iPad instruction and video tutorials the class was divided into five learning groups by the teachers. The groups were given a very general rubric to follow which explained the project they would be doing and then I turned them loose to see what they would do.  Five staff members stepped up and allowed my student groups to use their iPads for this lesson.  A very big thank you goes out to each one of them.  Three days into the project I realized the class needed to take a step back, regroup and fill in some of the learning gaps they were exhibiting to give them the best chance of success on this project and more importantly a positive experience in the introduction of  21st century education classroom.  So on day four, the plan was to mirror the research the students had been doing, so the whole class could offer suggestions to each other. an important concept I learned is collaboration is not cheating it is a very important skill that 21st century employers are looking for.  But, the Apple TV password and the iPad password were not in sync and we were unable to use the technology.  Still we persevered and following schedule changes and snow days the groups were finally ready to use the iPad apps and create their presentations--- however some iPads were not available and some had passwords so no technology again. But the good news is we used the time for group collaboration and filled in the gaps in their research.   So with baby steps this freshman class will move forward tomorrow and create their presentations.  I will keep you posted!

10th grade core subject
Regular Lesson:
Note:  The students took the quiz after the lesson and review on quiz let. They did not do well so the lesson is for remediation.

1. Students will work independently on web quest and complete each part and hand it in for grading.
2. Following completion of web quests students will review for quiz retake.
3. Students will retake quiz on biogeochemical cycles.


Remix Lesson: Remediation and Quiz Retake
This is a lesson I co-taught with Mrs. Speece.  Following their performance, we needed a remediation lesson so this is the lesson to remediate remixed to use iPads for the class.
Objective: Remediate the three biogeochemical cycles, water, carbon and nitrogen cycles. Students will be able to identify and explain the processes by which water, carbon and nitrogen move through the environment.
Materials: PowerPoint notes (PDF format on Wiki), for student review, iPads, Safari Browser, Speak Text for me App, Dropbox, quizlet website, Apple TV

Objective: Remediate the three biogeochemical cycles, water, carbon and nitrogen cycles. Students will be able to identify and explain the processes by which water, carbon and nitrogen move through the environment.
Materials:  PowerPoint notes (PDF format on Wiki), for student review, iPads, Safari Browser, Speak Text for me App, ShowMe App, Dropbox, Quizlet website, Apple TV, …..
New 21st Century Classroom Procedures:
1. Since the quizzes were a taken on paper, the students will receive their quiz back.  The quiz will be reformatted and teacher will project quiz on apple TV. Students will lead a review facilitated by the teacher.  The student led discussion will include talking through each question and answer and explaining the correct answer.

The answers are saved as a pdf file and when completed students will submit through Dropbox. This activity will take at least two days to complete.
3. To prepare for the quiz retake the students will review the key terms involved in the three biogeochemical cycles using their power point notes on the class wiki and also using the Study Stack that is linked to the class Edmodo.
4. The biogeochemical retake quiz will take on a new format in the 21st century classroom.
Students will use their iPads and the App ShowMe.  Each student will demonstrate understanding of the biogeochemical cycles by creating a diagram and voice over explanation of their assigned cycle.  The apps List Selector (free) or Student Selector (2.99) will randomly select a cycle for each student to create.
5. Once the student has created their ShowMe, it will be uploaded to the ShowMe website where at least two other students in the class will collaborate with each student to proofread and edit the ShowMe.  The ShowMe can then be edited using the peer suggestions before it is uploaded for teacher assessment.
 Using the ShowMe app will increase the time of assessment by two or more class periods to allow students to complete and upload their work.

Accommodations:  Students who have difficulty with reading the web quest and questions can use the app, Speak Text for me.  By using this app the students who need extended time for their tests and assignments will have the assignment available on the class wiki and on Edmodo for their review. Students who have difficulty writing the assignment can use the ShowMe app to draw their understanding and use the voice over to verbally explain the cycle they are assigned.

Ever see the episode of The Office where it takes Michael Scott so much longer to tell his staff something because he uses nothing but acronyms? Guess why that's funny.
P. S. How do I add features, such as italics, when typing comments.

What I meant to say was:

Would students watch the lecture ahead of time or would they only have that if they needed extra help? I like the teacher modeling at the start...What to do or what not to do would provide a basement or ceiling...I like the idea of the dropbox....One thing we are working on is coming up with a bank of ways to present information....I will start a folder and a page to start to collect the info....

Remix#2--->Really cool with the remediation aspect. I don't think we do this enough as educators....With timeliness and tests...it is so easy to just keep going! How could you use the technology at hand to complete procedure #1 of the remix? What teacher/student-based activity would help fill this void? Regarding number three...Does the finished work download or save in PDF to drop it? I love the progress and the mindset....This lesson is perfect to re-remix. Be careful of the PDF as it can just serve as nothing more than a worksheet, but digital. What dynamic concepts are out there....Something as simple as "Explain Everything" might just provide the punch you are looking for as student voice is used to show understanding....Great work and please let me know if you need help!

It is awesome to use the Show me app to get students' own explanation in multiple ways to help their understanding and your assessments. I also like the collaboration of students working together to re-edit and upload Show me work before assessment. Apple TV is good for mirroring flash card review. I wonder if there is something else that can also be mirrored ?

Mrs. Ash and Mrs. Kerlin: Great Job! The thoughfulness of the lesson seems right on for the 21st Century Learning and you have certainly planned ahead. Aside from the tech problems, did you find any other stalling points for the flow of your lesson?
Your lessons have great insights for me. This one seems so straight forward, but is packed with a number of skills required from your students that add to the depth and bredth of their learning experiences.
