Interested in getting a glimpse without going through the entire portfolio? Check out any of my Best Work pieces below!
Artifact 1 : Moodle Course (ISTE*T 1)
The artifact above is a 6 week course module that I created on Human Rights. To access the course, simply click on the image above, click on "Log in as Guest" and provide the password: Humanrights. The topics covered in this course include: What is a Right?, UDHR, Standard of Living Rights, Sex/Gender Rights, Environmental Rights, and Educational Rights. This course is meant to showcase simple design, engaging discussion boards, collaborative projects, and academic writing.
Artifact 2: Mock Classroom Website (ISTE*T 2)
The artifact above is a mock classroom website. To access the website, simply click on the image above. Since I do not yet have my own classroom, I set up a mock website to show how teachers can help students have access to learning at home. This webpage shows how students can manage their own goals, learning, and progress, through accessing online resources and information. *It is important to note that not all students have access to technology at home; no projects or information would be provided only in the online format.
Artifact 3: Design Portfolio (ISTE*T 3)
The artifact above is a full Design Element Portfolio. It was designed to show how to use basic design elements in creating online presentations. Students can collaborate with peers, parents, and community members through designing presentations or informational pieces about specific topics of choice, educational pieces, etc.
Artifact 4: Fair Use Video (ISTE*T 4)
The artifact above is an example of Fair Use. This video falls under the Code of Best Practice's Category Two: Using Copyrighted Material for Illustration of Example. I used a variety of primary source clips to illustrate the history and important artifacts related to the three most popular winter holidays. To ensure the video was in compliance with Fair Use policy, I measured against the four criteria: character, nature of the original work, amount, and market value. Understanding Fair Use, copyright, and best practice can help educators advocate, model, and teach the safe, legal, and ethical use of digital information and technology.
Artifact 5: SMART Board Trainings (ISTE*T 5)
The artifacts above are from my SMART Board Technology Workshops for A.S.S.E.T.T. (Agile & Sustainable Supplemental Educational Technology Training). I presented the workshops using the actual SMART Boards, however since it was in-real-time with attendees I created PowerPoint Presentations to showcase which topics I covered with them. These materials were used in workshops presented to ED 270 courses at W.O.U., as well as to pre-service teachers, faculty, and staff. After the presentations, students and staff provided valuable evaluations, which allowed for critical self-reflection and improvement. Additionally, I created a website to house 36 short tutorials I created on how to use these tools and functions in SMART Notebook. The goal was to provide the basics of SMART Boards in an effort to help more seamlessly integrate the technology into classrooms.
