TOOL # 7 Online Digital Projects
Project collaboration with Geneva Winfield
Students in 5th grade will participate in an Online Digital Project.
In December the students will work in paired pairs between an ESL and a Bilingual classroom on a Solar System Research Project. The content objectives will be expository writing, narrowing topic, determining questions, and understanding science objectives based on the solar system. Students will complete research by reading non-fiction materials including online and hard cover print, participate in labs, watch videos, as well as blog and SCYPE about their findings. Tools being used would include Google docs, Glogster, Blogger, Edmodo, and SCYPE. Each member of the group will compose an expository writing and each group will present a "Glogster" product as evidence of learned information.
I know my students will be so excited about this project. Using these types of methods will keep them focused and engaged.
