It is now time to reflect on what you have accomplished through your experimentation efforts in this module.

To do:

Prepare a detailed written reflection that includes responses to the questions below.

  1. Which three experimenter activities did you choose to complete and why? Include the links to your Activity Bank responses.
  2. Identify and explain three overall lessons learned from experimenting with these three activities. How might you use these activities going forward in your teaching practice?
  3. You were asked to complete at least one experimenter activity on a tablet or a smartphone.
    • Identify the activity completed and on what type of mobile device?
    • Identify and explain the advantages and challenges of using this technology tool on a mobile device.
    • Comment on how you might plan for an upcoming assignment to be completed on a tablet or a smartphone.
    • Explain the steps you might take in making access to these devices available to all students.
  4. Using a mobile device, camera, or screencasting software highlighted in the Online lecture toolkit to create a short 2-3 minute video of yourself illustrating how, when designing learning experiences in the future, you will use the technologies, ideas, formats, and/or approaches that you experimented with in this module.
    • Include an example of how you would incorporate this new knowledge into a lesson plan. Get as creative as you wish!
    • Upload your video to YouTube , Vimeo , or any other video hosting site that can create a public link to your video (or keep it private/unlisted if you like).
    • Include the link for your video in your reflection document.
  5. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form.

      I enjoyed working my way through the experimenter module. As I mention in reflection video, it was a treat to use these tools from the content creator perspective… even though I’ve used many of them from a student’s perspective. I hope you enjoy going to through my work.
