Now I think I understand my assignment. And this Dx thing is a heck of a lot longer than 60 to 70 minutes. It has taken me many days to get through it and it is dense.
So let’s take a look at Personalized Learning. There is a reason that there are not any high school mathematics examples. With standards based grading and DP programs up next, how am I supposed to let the student decide what they want to learn? And how they are going to demonstrate to me that they know it? Meanwhile I need to be checking for understanding and steering away from misunderstanding important concepts which may lead fundamental foundation problems later?
Okay, so I have finally finished my online learning planner. But it is a planner for planning. I still have a lot of work to do on Dx, so I want to finish the modules so I can start setting up my classes and figuring out how to get this all done without attaching the computer to myself.
so here is the final outcome. Feedback and suggestions welcome!
First goal, besides setting up my classes on Dx, is to try out some other screencasts. The internet here in Beijing has been awful, to say the least. Uploading any program or update can take half a day. That is disheartening. I want to learn beyond Noteability and be more creative in my screencasts.
I also need to figure out how I will be working in the classroom and providing support for those students online. There is a lot of pre-planning to be done, despite the fact that I have already been working on things this summer. Where does the time go (maybe to the waiting for the internet to finish a task?)?
