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.
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.
