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.
- Which three experimenter activities did you choose to complete and why? Include links to your Activity Bank responses.
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
