Week 11! March 24/2021

My course feels done, or at least for our class purposes, it feels done.   The link for Wellness 10 ECI 834 can be found here. My main page starts with essentially a syllabus and breakdown of the goals/topics covered in the Wellness 10 course.The next tab on the course is learning outcomes, which are directly from the Saskatchewan curriculum. This section also gives students a tangible look at the grade breakdown for these areas which are directly correlated with the amount of time we […]

Lessons Learned About Teaching                      Online During the Pandemic                                             – Steven Downes

The old is traditional teaching – new is online – this will take time to understand tech and methods – allow ourselves the time to become more familiar.Learning is social.  We needed to learn to adapt and rely on how others did things.

Week 9! March 10/21

As far as getting feedback / feedforward, I’ve done a few things in the past in order to improve my courses going forward. I would typically throw together a survey on surveymonkey.  They would typically get 5-8 questions, most with a 1-5 star rating and it made it painless and easy to follow. The final question on the survey would be open ended for any thoughts, comments or suggestions and I’d find that most students would skip this section, or put in some generic comment. I do these thing […]

Week 8! March 4/21

I decided to do this week’s blog entry on fonts.  I haven’t ever really given it much thought and I always went with Times New Roman or, if I’m feeling adventurous, Arial.  Sometimes bold, sometimes underline no real use for italics unless it’s for citations- but that’s it.  I don’t typically stray from these staples since I feel like they are professional looking and I haven’t had a need to try something else.  Maybe I’m lacking creativity.  Last week – and in previous […]

Week 7! February 23/2021

It was a little nerve wracking to present some of the stuff I’ve been working on over the last few weeks.  I’m always a little skeptical of my own work until I can get some feedback or reassurance that I’m on the right track. Our group had great discussions about everyone’s modules and setups and was super interesting to see how people were trying new things and what successes and challenges they were finding. Jocelyn had such cool little videos and animations that I’m ponderingdoing someth […]

Week 4! February 2/2021

I’ve decided to review deck.toys    The sign in page allows for students or teachers (free account) to login. You can also login using Google or Facebook which may allow the user to link their Google Drive and Google Classroom to this interactive lesson planner.  Once logged in as the teacher, you can add up to two classrooms and peruse the pre-built lessons or create your own.  The premade lessons include Math, Social, Science and ELA.  After you’ve selected the su […]
