How could Voo2Do be used within an educational/learning situation?

a) Elementary

  • A teacher could use Voo2Do to organize her lesson plans, projects, tests, and when they give out a worksheet. 
  • For a elementary school classroom Voo2do could be used to introduce students to using computers and planning at the same time, An example could be an assignment using Voo2do to plan out their after school activities. It would be evaluated on correct completion.

Objective

Students will be able to plan activities and budget time using an online planner effectively using Voo2do.  Students will receive 100% for completing the application.

Learning environment

The students would be in a grade school computer lab, with every student having access to their own computer.  A gym for play is optional.

Description of students

Students grade four through six.

Standards

1a,1b,2a

Materials

Computer

Procedure

1.       Instructor will lecture students on the importance of planning and organization.
2.      Instructor will familiarize the student with the Voo2do software

Application

Students will be asked to make a list of fun activities for the remainder of the class period using Voo2do.  As activities are completed, students will record the amount of time spent on each, and mark them as complete when finished. 

Evaluation

Teacher will review the students' schedules with them, discussing what they did right and wrong.

 

Here is what a students plan from the application might look like:

Here is another lesson plan that two of our other group members, Megan Roof and Ashley Moss, created:  Elementary Lesson Plan

b) Secondary

  • A teacher could ask a student to create an account and make them add so many tasks, notes, and projects. They can then ask the student to make it a public task page so they can visit the page after the student sends them a url of their public task page.  The teacher can then grade them on completion or whatever they choose to.
  • Voo2do could be assigned by a instructor as a means of coordinating a group project; This would be especially effective if the class had an emphasis on familiarization with technology.

Objective

Students will learn about the history of technology while at the same time learning to use the internet for research.  They will use computers with the internet to do all the research.  They will be evaluated out of 100 points.

Learning environment

Students will work on the project in a computer lab where every student has access to their own computer.

Description of students

Student would range between freshmen to Seniors in a secondary school.  They would be enrolled in a technology course.

Standards

1c 2a 2b

Materials

  • One computer for every student.
  • Grading rubric handout

Procedure

1.  Instructor gives a lecture concerning recent advancements in technology.
2.  Instructor will introduce the research project explaining the outline of using the practical application of the internet as the only means of completing the project.                                                                     
3.  Instructor will give a tutorial of the Voo2do software.
4.  Students will be given a grading rubric as a guide
5.  Students will be given ample time in class to work on research for the project over the course of several days.

Application

Each student will write a research paper on the history of the development of a major technology using only the internet.  Students will use the program Voo2do to organize the project.

Evaluation

At the end of one week of class the projects will collected.  They will be graded on a scale of 100 points according to the quality of the research paper as well as efficiency of planning using Voo2doo.

This lesson plan was created by Nathan Abshire.

Overview

Students will learn about the stages and process of fetal development. They will then use the online web application Voo2Do to learn how the stages relate to each other.

Objective

After researching fetal development, students will make a calendar showing the different stages of development. They will be graded for correctness and thoroughness as described by the rubric.

Learning environment

Students will work on the project in a computer lab where every student has access to their own computer with internet access

Description of students

Student would be high school aged students in Biology II - Anatomy and Physiology

Standards

This project will satisfy Indiana's Academic Standard AP.29.9 for Anatomy and Physiology

Materials

Access to research materials, including text book and internet; Internet access to access the web 2.0 application Voo2Do

Procedure

Students will use calendar and the ability to assign due dates in the Voo2Do application to develop a set of tasks that represent the different stages of fetal development. The ability to assign lengths of time to the different tasks will allow students to see how each of the stages relates to one another.

Evaluation

Students' final calendar will be graded based on the instructor's desired level of thoroughness, as based on a rubric.

c) Post secondary

  • In college where most students own a laptop.  Voo2do could replace a conventional student planner, to organize when they have exams, homework, work, and extra curricular activities. 
  •  Not only would it keep a college students reminded of oncoming exams and assignments. Voo2do could also help him or her use their time in study more efficiently by organizing and prioritizing tasks, as well as timing the work performed on each task.

*This lesson is derived from Dr. Newby's Project 2 from his EDCI 270 class. Fall 2008

Objective

Students will be able to work together in a group to create a wiki page on web 2.0 technology.  Students can use any resource they can find to aid them in completing the page.  Students will be evaluated on a 70 point scale.

Learning environment

A college computer lab, equipped with a projector and computers for each student

Description of Students

Block one education major college students.

Standards

2a 2b 3a 3b 3c 3d

Materials

A rubric for grading the project.

Procedure

1.  Instructor explains the outline of the project, and what is to be expected.
2. Grading rubric is handed out.
3.  Teams are formed for each Web 2.0 technology
4.  Team leaders are chosen
5.  Throughout the project the groups will work together, attend group meetings, and prepare a presentation on their Web 2.0 technology.
6.  Every group will give a presentation about their assigned Web 2.0 application at a showcase.

Application

Each group will create a Wiki page explaining a currently existing Web 2.0 application (Such as Facebook Chat, or Voo2Do, for instance).  The students will be required to work on the project both as individuals and as groups.  They will also give a presentation for an audience on their topic.

Evaluation

The projects will be graded both upon the finished project and individual contribution of group members.  The project will be worth 70 points.

d) Business/Industry

  • A Business/Industry could use Voo2Do to organize a large project that they have going on inside their company. They can use the collaborative context to assign a task to everyone who is involved in the project. They could also make the task list public and set a password on it so only those who are working on the project can view the project and its tasks and who has to do what. It will keep everyone on task and make sure that the project gets completed in time.
  • In the world of business and industry, Voo2do could be used as an interactive planner for the individual worker in much the same way that it could be utilized by a college student,  as a simple tool for keeping track of their personal work and deadlines for the company. 

Objectives

For management to evaluate work efficiency of their workers using the program Voo2do.  Passing evaluation will be in accordance with the company's efficiency standards.

Learning Environment

Virtually any company or business conference room equipped with a projector connected to a computer

Students

workers of a company

Materials

  1. a projector
  2. adequate seating
  3. computers for all workers
  4. a computer connected to a projector for the presenter

Procedure

  2. Boss will exlplain and demonstrate usage of the Voo2do program for the workers.
  3. Workers will be dismissed to work as they normally would while being monitored by the Voo2do program for efficiency.

Application

Each worker will compile his or her various assorted tasks onto Voo2do.  Each day in the week will be organized as its own project.  Throughout the day as they begin new tasks they will start the timer to record how efficiently they are completing their tasks.  When they complete tasks they will check them so they move to the recently completed tasks been.  At the end of the week their efficiency will be turned in to a supervisor to be evaluated.

Evaluation

Evalution will be based on the efficiency standards of the company.

Here is an example of how Voo2Do could be used in the workplace:
