The purpose of this blog post is to describe what I learned in Jigsaw University 104. This section was where everything came together to create a lesson. I used a four pane Jigsaw Synchronous Classroom with the following setup. The top left pane was used to display a picture of myself that is intended to create a connection with the person reviewing the recording or in attendance. The top right pane was used to display the presentation on Digital Security. This pane can be enlarged to make the viewing of the presentation easier. The bottom left pane was used to place a survey question regarding what digital security is and the importance of it. The bottom right pane I used to display a picture illustrating digital security.
After putting together a test run, I realized that I could utilize the whiteboard to make the lesson more iterative. The difficulty with test runs is that you don't have any students in the classroom and there are time restraints in place.
Overall this has been a great lesson that has allowed me to explore the tools that are necessary to be successful in creating a lesson in Jigsaw. I am grateful for the experience and know that I will be able to continue to grow with this lesson as a foundation. Please see the link below.
Jigsaw University 103 focuses on the use of Pane 3 and Pane 4 of the Jigsaw Synchronous Classroom. Pane 3 has some really interesting features. I personally like the feature of the map for students being able to see where I am located. I would say that for a practical use the survey feature is my favorite. The survey feature allows you to survey the classroom and gauge understanding or interest in a range of topics. This would allow the instructor to gain immediate feedback from the class. Pane 4 allows the instructor to do a variety of presentations, write on the white board, post links and much more. Pane 4 felt to me as I were in a face-to-face classroom and writing on the board for students. Please view the link below.
Jigsaw University 102 was designed to teach the learner how to use Pane 1 and Pane 2. I have created and attached a link below this post that allows you to see how I used Pane 1 and Pane 2. Pane was has my picture in place and you can hear my voice throughout this short demonstration. Pane 2 was focused on giving a presentation. For the purpose of this demonstration I used a power point on a book review for the Burden of Command. The Burden of Command is one of my favorite books. Jigsaw has done a great job allowing the instructor to create assets in the format they are most comfortable with and providing an easy platform to upload.
This blog post is to identify and reflect on using blog post in Jigsaw. I found the Jigsaw University 101 class to be very helpful in showing me how to use and create assets to improve the synchronous classroom. The first asset I created was just a picture of myself.
The second asset I used was just a fun picture to engage students and create a light mood.
I also included a practice syllabus to ensure that the document would load properly.
The fourth asset I used for the asset section was a link to my web page that contains a video on Community Policing that was produced by TED Talks. The fifth asset I created was a survey that I used in Jigsaw. The survey may be my favorite option of all. The survey can be found in the bottom left quadrant.
The last image I want to share is a picture of my asset library and the assets assigned to this session of Jigsaw.
I really feel this was a valuable lesson that will better prepare me to serve my students with a well organized Jigsaw Classroom.
