Partners in Learning teacher projects




Peer Coaching Web Lessons

Task 1

a) Sign into the Microsoft Institute for Pre- service Teachers Community.

b) In the “Team Discussion” area, share your reflections on one project (see reflection template)

c) Make sure to provide a link on the community site to the project which you have explored in-depth.

Step 2: Planning

There are 5 design principles essential for developing project based learning. Make sure to incorporate these into your planning.

Task 2

  • Use Microsoft Office OneNote 2008 to plan the different

  • parts of your project. Create a notebook with 5 sections

  • (one for each PBL principle)

  • share your notebook and get feedback from your peers

  • add audio/visual resources as part of the planning process

  • use tags to create deadlines and reminders

  • Use this Overview of Microsoft Office OneNote 2008

Step 3: Creating

Create an audio visual resource to introduce your project to your students is a great way to engage and motivate them.

It doesn’t take long and can have a lasting impact.

Task 3

  • Use either Microsoft Photo Story or Windows Live Movie Maker to create a video which summarizes your project. This video could be used as a lesson starter activity to introduce your project.

  • share your video on-line

  • provide a link to your video on PiLN.

Step 4: Sharing

One of the most significant aspects of collaboration as a result of technology developments (Web 2.0) has been the shift to “mass collaboration”. There are multiple ways to share information and engage a wider audience.

Task 4

Share your video on the Microsoft Institute for Pre-service Teachers Community.

Create an Office Live Workspace to upload any resources which are related to your project. This could be images, documents or files.

Step 5: Presenting

This last stage is about presenting your project in the template provided so it can be submitted to an expert panel of educators for feedback.

Task 5

  • Complete the VCT template provided to pull your project together.

  • Download a VCT template

  • Step-by-step guide how to create a VCT

  • Guide to upload VCT

  • Judging Criteria

  • Upload your VCT to the Microsoft Institute for Pre-service Teachers Community.
