First Nations of Canada Unit – Media Exemplar

First Nations of Canada This unit was designed to be taught to pre-10 ESL International students before entering into the BC curriculum. It is to follow a unit on Canadian Geography that introduces the provinces, landscapes and climate. This is a general introduction to the concepts and vocabulary of First Nations groups. Rather than get […]

Student Assignment

I took an assignment I have previously done and added the audio recording aspect as I now know how to do this and can easily teach my students. I am also looking forward to having them create their own file-sharing sites where they can upload assignments for assessment. I think this is a great way […]

Enhanced Media Lesson

This lesson was designed for mid-level ESL learners (specifically Chinese, in my case). I found in my classroom that students had no training in reading for clues, or contextual reading. I took it upon myself to introduce them to this skill. The results have been an enormous increase in their reading comprehension which was the […]

Digital Story

Wow! This took so much longer and was much more difficult than I anticipated. I started with an idea to tell a story between passive learning and active learning which is something I’m doing with my students. I wrote a script and made a list of photos I needed to go with it. We went […]

Activity 5.3

Week 4 Activity 4

I chose this photo to go with an explorers/invention unit. By giving the students a historical image, it encourages their creativity and gives them a place to begin their research. This photo would be for the group researching aeronautics/A. Earhart project.

Week 4 Activity 3

I used SumoPaint to create these layers of my graphics depicting the make-up of an atom. I’m not a terribly good drawer so I went for basic shapes and colours. I matched the font colour of the component with the colour of the image. The purpose of this graphic is to clearly define the three […]

Week 3 Activity 2

  Here are the graphics I created and uploaded to Flicker. http://www.flickr.com/photos/12931728@N05/   I found Flicker to be a little tedious and slow. I have no problem uploading my own files and making notes, but I have not been able to find any others with the eddl513 tag other than Keith’s. While it is a useful […]

Week 3 Activity 1

I chose this photo as part of an IT class. Showing the large photo of a circuit board and then narrowing in on the component needed to study.   Original   Cropped
