I just updated my students' home study list.
The list is hosted on a Google doc for regular review.
The new list includes the following:
- Image and link to article related to current research.
- A quote.
- Quick Links: overview of at-home study expectations.
- Homework Chart: home study details.
- Additional Information and Charts: to support students' home study.
- Message app to foster regular share and questioning like Twitter.
- Calculator app to help students out with homework.
As I worked on this update today, I used Google's research tool. Then when the footnote immediately was placed on the page, I thought about how I can research each week using this tool which will introduce students to footnotes and the research process in a natural way--a way for which they can see the value and a way that they can copy as they do their own research.
As educators, we can consistently and deeply share our own learning process through a regular share document like this home study list. It's a one-stop place for the learning community when it comes to understanding the work and study to do as well as sharing the questions and homework related to that study.
|I'm playing around with the "Messenger app" to build greater share on this document.|
