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

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 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? Then, 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.

    The three experimenter activities I chose to complete were ‘Padlet Padlet’, ‘Information as a Graphic’, and ‘A Serious Use For Silly Media’. I chose the Padlet activity because I am familiar with Padlet and wanted to experiment and use it more in tutorial. I chose the Infographic and GIPHY activities because during the other modules, more… »

  • Experimenter – Reflection
    by Haley Whitelaw (@hwhitelaw)

    I chose to complete the ‘Going Interactive with H5P’, ‘Padlet’, and ‘A Serious Use for Silly Media’ experimenter activities. I previewed this module many weeks ago and wanted to specifically incorporate H5P and Padlet into my course. I really had high hopes (and still do) for integrating H5P into many of the courses I teach, more… »

    Below are my responses to the reflection questions: 1. Which three experimenter activities did you choose to complete and why? Include links to your Activity Bank responses.

  • Experimenter Reflection
    by Rachel Boorsma (@Rachel Boorsma)

    I chose to complete the Going Interactive with H5P, Information as a Graphic, and Surveying activities. I chose these because I have seen most of these used before in my institution and know that there is support for them, so they’re a great place to start. For going interactive, I was able to create an more… »

      shared by Christopher Rowe (@ChristopherRowe)

      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.

    • The Experimenter Module (I am an Experimenter)
      shared by Jane Carr (@jscarr)

      Working through the Experimenter module proved to be fun! As you can see in my little video: https://youtu.be/FIyKfA9FG1A , it was important that I take the time to learn about these tools and the associated techniques. It was so cool to try out the new tools but not everything is a good fit for my more… »
