Week 13 - How do you spell collaboration (Sp2012)

Page history last edited by Linda Newell 8 years, 6 months ago

Introduction

Even if you are not a proponent of collaboration as a pedagogic tenet, you must admit there is quite a bit of research on the subject. Many feel it is integral in preparing our students for life in a 21st century, global workplace. But how should this look in the classroom? How do teachers introduce and develop these skills in their students? And finally, how can Web 2.0 tools provide a motivational and engaging scaffold for this development in our students?

 

Learning Outcomes

  • To continue to investigate, analyze, produce, and evaluate technology-based strategies which will meet the educational needs of this type of learner:

 

 

 

 

Reading

This week you will read:

 

Seminar     

  • Option 1 - You will attend a seminar that will discuss assignments for the upcoming week.  Access to Meeting of the Minds is via the collaborate tool in Blackboard.

 

  • Option 2 – This option is to provide flexibility in meeting the scheduled portion of the course. If selected, your assignment is to listen to the archived seminar and then write a 350+ word synopsis, including your own responses, to each of the questions posed during the meeting. All APA formatting and citations conventions are to be followed (see syllabus).

 

Because of the time sensitive nature of the information given during our seminar time, this assignment is to be received no later than the Thursday following the seminar meeting date. The synopsis is to be emailed to your instructor and timestamped by midnight. Papers received after Thursday will be accepted until the Sunday of the course closing for this week with a 20% deduction. After midnight, papers will no longer be accepted.

 

Your grade for attendance will be predicated upon the following rubric:

Your grade will be predicated upon the following:

 

 

To do

Points

Download the MTT preparation manual (TexMat link) Read chap. 6 & 7.

 
 

Find a partner. (I ask that this not be someone you worked with in the Week 11 assignment. I am to be included as a member of every team - linda.newell@utb.edu .)

 

Using Google Docs / Documents, create a case study with your partner using the MTT case study as a model. Your case study should follow the general format of the MTT version in the manual, but reflect your own individuality and a high degree of differentiation, critical thinking, and analysis. (Note: the five tasks at the end are the same for every case study in the MTT exam. Therefore, yours should be worded exactly the same. Just modify the items that need to be changed in order to reflect your prompt. Also, in task #5, choose two different content areas as those do change from test to test.) It MUST be saved as lastname-lastname-casestudy.

12

Upon completion, meet with your partner team and exchange invitations to review each other's case study. (Use the invite tool in Google Docs.) With your partner, collaboratively respond to your partner team's case study via a new document. ( Again, I am to to be invited.)  It MUST be saved as lastname-lastname-response.

10

 After your collaborative response has been completed, each case study should be sent back to the the partner team. The partner team will then collaboratively score your responses to their case study based upon the analytic scoring guidelines in chapter 6 of the MTT preparation manual.

Using Google Docs: Presentations, each team should then craft a collaborative grading response to be sent back to their partner team. It must include the following: 

  • Slide 1 - Give title with names of creators and responders identified

  • Slide 2 - Copy of prompt (may require 2 slides)
  • Slide 3 - Available technologies

  • Slide 4 - Task 1

    • state task

    • give grade based upon the analytic scoring guidelines

    • give detailed rationale for grade selection

  • Slide 5 - Task 2

    • state task

    • give grade based upon the analytic scoring guidelines

    • give detailed rationale for grade selection

  • Slide 6 - Task 3

    • state task

    • give grade based upon the analytic scoring guidelines

    • give detailed rationale for grade selection

  • Slide 7 - Task 4

    • state task

    • give grade based upon the analytic scoring guidelines

    • give rationale for grade selection

  • Slide 8 - Task 5

    • state task

    • give grade based upon the analytic scoring guidelines

    • give detailed rationale for grade selection

The response should then be shared with the partner team, using the invite tool. Invite me as well. It MUST be saved as lastname-lastname-scoring.

Note: Collaboration entries (who, what, when, and number of times) are automatically recorded in Google Docs. The framework within which both partners' grades will be based is the level of quality and involvement, which is expected to be balanced, appropriate, and shared.

 

This will be due at the end of Week 14, on Sunday at midnight.
