Day 2

NETS for Students

    Your workload is already heavy, but you would like to see how you can use the Internet to strengthen your curriculum. In this workshop, you will find out how the World Wide Web can be easy, fun, rewarding, and highly productive for classroom instruction. Discover the many formats you can use to integrate the Internet including collaboration, searching strategies, and research activities. Lots of clear examples and step-by-step strategies make it much easier for teachers to help students quickly and efficiently research topics on the Web, think critically about content, avoid plagiarism, and use their finding to construct presentations on what they have learned.

Assessing Student Learning

    Once you've selected an activity that matches your classroom curriculum and have identified which learning standards this lesson will be addressing, the next important step is planning how you will assess student learning. In this workshop we will explore the different kinds of assessments you can use as well as online rubrics generators to create several different types of measurement tools.
