Homework project
Homework Project for a life of civic commitment, of self-reflection, and of meaningful work and contributions to community. The way is about unlocking student talent, compassion, and humanity. If the iPad distracts us from defining the way

  • Select a task/goal that your student needs to complete

  • Take one of the techniques learned at the workshop

  • Do a Pre-Test with your student as to “Present Level of Performance”

  • Teach the new technique/device with the goal of accomplishing the student task

  • Do a Post-Test to determine new learning /skills

  • Write a report on the process and results


Homework continued
Homework continued… for a life of civic commitment, of self-reflection, and of meaningful work and contributions to community. The way is about unlocking student talent, compassion, and humanity. If the iPad distracts us from defining the way

  • The student must use the technology to complete an academic or functional task

  • Just “learning the keys of the BookPort” or “downloading an app” or “loading the paper in the Mountbatten” is not a task.

  • Those are learning to use the tool… not using the tool to complete a task.

  • You have to know how to work the saw before you can cut wood ….
