3.2. Notes

3.2.1. Mapping Your Local Community

3.2.2. Objectives The grade.2 students will be able to use ICT Google Maps, and locate specific points on their local map.

3.2.3. Reasoning The reasoning behind this lesson is for the students to become more comfortable using ICT programs, and getting to know their community in a different perspective.

3.2.4. Content This will be a summative evaluation Students will need one class prior to go over the google mapping program and how to use it, and go over the local community points we will want to include.

3.2.5. Method of Instruction Class #1: The whole class with review how to use Google Maps collaboratively, and will do 1-2 practice examples together without being graded to get a handle on the program. Class #2: The class, as a whole, will be given the instructions for the Google Maps lesson. There will be three main locations that the students will have to locate and pin on the map, they then will choose to locations of their own choice to pin on the map. Students will have to create a route from each location. Students will be working individually for this lesson. I (teacher) will be moving throughout the classroom assessing how the students are working, and making sure they are on the right track. Students will be given 3-4 class periods to work on this assignment. Extra time will be given if I feel as though students need more time. For students who are having difficulty, I will hold a conference to give extra help to students who are struggling with the Google Maps program.

3.2.6. Method of Evaluation Students will be graded on their Google Maps assignment with a rubric created prior to the lesson. Students will have the rubric to know what criteria is expected of them. Did the student locate the three specific local points? Did the student locate two of their own local points? Was the assignment completed on time? Does this map make sense to someone seeing it for the first time?

4. Podcasting

4.1. Objectives

4.1.1. ICT Affective Co-2.1 collaborates with peers to accomplish self-directed learning with ICT in various settings S-1.1 identifies uses of ICT at home, at school, at work, and in the community Cognitive P-2.1 constructs “how and why” questions, predictions, hunches, educated guesses, and hypotheses and identifies information needs G-2.4 analyzes whether information collected from media sources is sufficient and/or suitable for purpose and audience

4.1.2. Manitoba Curriculum Grade.5: English Language General Outcomes 3.1 Students will listen, speak, read, write, view, and represent to manage ideas and information. Specific Outcomes 3.1.3 Contribute to Group Inquiry Share personal knowledge of a selected topic to help formulate relevant questions appropriate to a specific audience and purpose for group inquiry or research.

4.2. Notes

4.2.1. Peer Interviews

4.2.2. The goal of this lesson will be for the students to come up with a topic and create a question and answer period to share the information they have learned. To develop their ICT skills with audio files To develop the skills to work as a "team" with another classmate

4.2.3. Objectives Students will build their skills using ICT audio Students will build their interview taking, and conducting skills

4.2.4. Reasoning The students will be working in pairs, together the two will come up with a topic of interest to both. By creating/asking questions about the topic, they will receive a better understanding of the topic. The students will be able to hear how they sound in a question answer period, and from there be able to improve on their public speaking, or interview skills. Are the students clear with their questions? Are the students clear with their answers? Are the students confident when they are speaking, are they speaking clearly... etc.

4.2.5. Content Students in their pair will create a topic they are interested in and confirm with teacher. Students will need a class to learn how to use the audio file called Audacity, how to record, and edit files. Students will also need a lesson on how to create and answer appropriate questions for when conducting their interview with one another to share with the class once project is over.

4.2.6. Method of Instruction First; students will have a class dedicated to learning how to use Audacity, recording and how to edit files Second; students will be made into pairs by the teacher, the pairs will then come up with a topic of interest to them, and confirm it with the teacher. Third; students will come up with 10 questions together, and the answers to those questions. The pairs will take turns asking and answering each of the questions. During this process the teacher will move throughout the classroom to ensure students are staying on task, and being appropriate with their questions and answers. Once the Podcast is together, it will be shared with the whole class to learn about each topic through the question and answer period. Students will take notes, and will be tested on the information learned through the Podcast. For students struggling to comprehend the ICT part of the project will be given the chance to have a refresher course on how it works, and as well the teacher will be available to help individually.

4.2.7. Method of Evaluation The ICT Part of Lesson Did the students follow the Audacity, recording and editing instructions given, and if so how well? Was the recording clear, and easily understood by audience? Topic/Questions/Answers/Interview Topic: Was the students topic thought out or at grade level Questions: Did the questions created by the student allow for a better understanding of the topic Answers: Were the answers elaborate or to general. Interview: Did the students conduct a proper interview, was their speech clear, was their information clear and easily understood by the audience.
