Short Session Description (one line): THE USE OS SKYPE IN THE CLASSROOM ,ASSESSED VIA EDMODO

 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The joy of acquiring a powerful tool for learning can often lead to abuse before reaching maturity (exploitation) This can be avoided with the use of new techniques such as webquests where students divided into teams follow a certain pattern of research in order to produce the final product which might be in written form or an oral presentation

An example will be  given where students were asked to create the best possible space city. Info was googled within in the classroom since all students have their personal tablet in class.(Our school has introduced the 1:1 process in primary and high school since 2009).Each group posted in Edmodo their initial work and proposal  and I commented on it sending useful feedback and links.

Questions raised by the students were answered by the space expert Dr Alexander Martynov via Skype and the whole project  was posted and assessed by the students themselves on the educational platform Edmodo, www.edmodo.com where I have started a discussion at first and then posted a poll.This is only an example ,variouw projects can also be posted in the plattform and students get really excited by sharing thoughts and ideas with their friends via an interactive way.

The level of student motivation in this project was also  indicated by the fact that the students took the initiative to contact Dr Martynov themselves. All info was found on a simple internet site.

This looks great!  You need to give more information in the full description as to the use of Edmodo, since people are very interested in Edmodo but it's not clear how that relates to your student projects.

Cheers,

Steve
