Educational Leadership:Reading Comprehension:Making Sense of Online Text - 33 views

  •  
    I worked with Julie Curio a few years ago for MA New Literacies. I think it is so important to start teaching students these new skill to comprehend text and to efficiently search a topic. However, I teach graduate level courses and I do these exercises with teachers and many (regardless of age) do not know these strategies. States need to do more PD to bring administrators and teachers up to par so we can make sure our students are ready for whatever comes their way. Thanks, ~Katy

Each video is accompanied by am interactive quiz to test the student on what they have learnt from the video they have watched.

    We call DJEEO an outdoors computer game for children. DJEEO combines advanced IT technology with outdoors activities in a multimedia treasure hunt/orientation run. DJEEO is designed to: Facilitate learning through physical activity and play. Strengthen cooperation and communication. Increase intensity and activity for all participants. How do you win? To win a mission a team needs to score the most points. A team scores points by solving problems and finding posts in the field. The game can only be completed through close cooperation between the agents in the field and the control center. DJEEO in Education The problems that need to be solved can be tailored to the subject being taught in class. In other words DJEEO can be used as an educational tool in almost any subject at primary school. After a session where 20 teachers participated we asked them which subjects they thought DJEEO could be used in. Their answer: “Mathematics, social studies, geography, language, physical education, etc. We then discussed DJEEO’s usefulness as an educational tool. All agreed that the ability to adjust the level of difficulty and the tailoring of questions to subject matter, allowed by the flexible project module, makes DJEEO a valuable tool for almost any subject.
