Themes and Challenges
Time constraints: having to focus more on technology than content out of necessity, such as introducing activities late, lack of lab access, little time for planning
Integrating the parts of the trivium--balancing the 3 aspects of the trivium, plus the existing learning objectives in every class session is a major challenge
Finding the right platform--no one platform had all the features we'd like to use
Assessment and Participation---when assignments were voluntary or not for a grade, there was no accountability and students did not fully participate. We'll continue to explore opportunities for assessment, including student generated rubrics or protocol for commenting on each others' work. To assess her students' work, Nicole counted the number of responses students posted evaluated the quality of each post.
