This blog post is to reflect on what I have learned while completing the Create lesson. The following standards were addressed during these lessons:
Standard B: The online teacher understands and is able to use a range of technologies, both existing and emerging, that effectively support student learning and engagement in the online environment.
Standard C: The online teacher plans, designs, and incorporates strategies to encourage active learning, application, interaction, participation, and collaboration in the online environment.
Standard E: The online teacher models, guides, and encourages legal, ethical, and safe behavior related to technology use.
Standard K: The online teacher arranges media and content to help students and teachers transfer knowledge most effectively in the online environment.
There have been many lessons in this module that have helped me to meet each standard. Standard B and Standard C were met in Create 2 - Web Tools for Differentiation of Teacher Instruction and in Create 2 - Web Tools both of these lessons provided me with the information to support student engagement in a fun and interactive online environment.
Standard E was met in Create 3 - Open Educational Resources this section, I feel, prepared me to show students how to use resources in an ethical and legal way. I will also be able to share information that is safe for my students.
Standard K was met in Create 4 - Aggregating Lesson Material where the focus was to help students by having information in an easy to follow LMS. Without delivery the students will never learn.
The strategies I will take away from create are; how to find save material to deliver to students, and how to create learning objects to make learning more engaging. Throughout the lesson one of the most useful items was the learning maps. The maps make lessons easy to follow for the instructor and the student.
