This Week: The beginning of class will be ensuring that your presentations and assessments are ready. The assessments should be a Google form embedded on your blog. If you go back and revisit the instructions for the assessment (found waaay back in week 6), you need at least 3 questions (could have more): one about the content (NETS Performance Indicators for your grade range), one about the technical aspects (number of slides/frames, graphics, etc.), and one about the overall presentation. Once you are ready, you will present your NETS-S presentation to grade-level groups. I will also revisit the emerging technology checklist to see if you have any questions and show everyone how to put their narratives in TaskStream (Each group has had at least two edits from me!). Lastly, if time permits, I will show you how to use Inspiration to plan out the final TaskStream narratives!
