For the week of November 11 through November 17:
  • Marketing:     1) Develop outline for the final showcase presentation, handouts, poster, etc.  Bring an example of the showcase presentation, handout, and poster to class on Wednesday (November 18).
  • Writers:     1) Develop second draft of wiki chapter (refine, paraphrase, add references, cite!)     2) Communicate with the Instructional Designers about what could be added to the wiki chapter.
  • Instructional Designers:     1) Code the wiki chapter (including tables, linking within the page, and adding pictures--but remember to use references when taking a picture from the web. An example would be to add a picture of students using computers or a computer lab in the "How Can Live Documents be Used" section. Tie the sections together with relevant pictures!)     2) Outline the goals of the project (design key pieces for the full project: what is to be included, how many examples, how to structure graphics, use of video, etc.)  Communicate these goals with the writers, and email them to Anne.
  • Evaluators:     1) Look over the written work and make suggestions about how/what to change.
  • Researchers:     1) Continue to add information to the Research Page. (Especially for sections that are lacking in information)
  • Connectors:     1) Email the creators again on Friday if they have not responded back by then. Did you send it to one person or multiple people? Maybe try sending an email to others as well.     2)Look over the written work and make suggestions to the writers about how/what to change. If you find something that should be changed, email them!     3) Brainstorm on how will you get individuals to pay attention to Live Documents at the showcase?     4) Figure out ways to have our group viewed as a cohesive group at the showcase (similar t-shirts, logo, name, etc.) Talk to the Marketers about these ideas and discuss any that they have come up with.
  • International Partners: Continue making a video of using Live Documents.

(green star)  Notes: Everyone has been assigned at least one lesson plan to complete in the next week (except for the International Partners). These will be reviewed by members of the group and some will need to be revised before adding them to the wiki chapter. These lesson plans need to incorporate Live Documents somehow. 

 An example for a secondary education lesson plan would be in an astronomy science class, where the students have a lecture and powerpoint (using Live Documents presentation) on stars, and then in groups of 2, have to type an essay using Live Documents document on "What makes a star?" Then their documents will be transfered from the desktop to the browser and the different groups can go online and grade each others' responses.

The actual lesson plan that you devise should be created in microsoft office, so it will be more user friendly when people visit our wiki chapter in the future! Be sure to include standards in the lesson plan Once you complete the lesson plan, please email them to Anne. Some will be uploaded to the wiki chapter before next week's class for the peer review.

This is the list of assigned lesson plans:

  1. Allie Issleib: Elementary Education -STEM based
  2. Megan Long: Elementary Education
  3. Anne Myers: Elementary Education
  4. Sonya Lehman: Secondary Education -STEM based
  5. Tyler Rosenberger: Secondary Education
  6. Brad Thompson: Secondary Education
  7. Troy Pawlak: Post-Secondary Education -STEM based
  8. Megan Devine: Post-Secondary Education
  9. Anne Myers: Post-Secondary Education

    Here are the jobs for the week of 11/18. These need to be completed before you leave for Thanksgiving next Wednesday.

    Marketing: Work on the second draft of the final showcase presentation, handouts and poster. How will our booth and poster behind us be set up effectively? Talk to the connectors about your ideas. I would like your ideas with the connectors posted on the Research Page before Thanksgiving Break.

    Writers: Paraphrase! If there is something taken directly from a website, it needs to be in quotations. For everything that is taken from a website, I would like a reference number next to that sentence/paragraph. The reference then needs to be added to the references at the bottom with the same number.

    Instructional Designers: 1) Finalize the table of contents and linking within the page. 2) Read over the wiki chapter and make sure that things taken from a website have a reference number next to them, and then make sure that the reference is added under References. If it is not, talk to the writers and ask them to go back and find where each part was taken from. 3) Add pictures to the wiki where necessary! Also, use Jing to add screenshots (write a caption saying it is a screen shot of Live Documents.) Look at other wikis to see what kinds of pictures they have added and where. I would like your jobs to be finished before Thanksgiving!

    Evaluators: 1) Look over the written work and make suggestions about how/what to change.

    Researchers: 1) Continue to add information to the Research Page. (Especially for sections that are lacking in information)

    Connectors: 1) Email the creators again, asking for their help, etc. The email should contain what you have written in previous emails before. 2)Look over the written work and make suggestions to the writers about how/what to change. If you find something that should be changed, email them! We are trying to finish the wiki chapter before Thanksgiving! 3) Brainstorm on how will you get individuals to pay attention to Live Documents at the showcase? 4) Figure out ways to have our group viewed as a cohesive group at the showcase (similar t-shirts, logo, name, etc.) Talk to the Marketers about these ideas and discuss any that they have come up with. I would like your ideas with the connectors posted on the Research Page before Thanksgiving.

    International Partners: Continue on the video!

    Only 20 days until our Showcase! Keep working hard, it will pay off in the end! NO EXAM if you get 66/70.

    Also for the Instructional Designers: you need to have our Lesson Plans open to a word document. So you can keep it so it opens on the web, but it is required to have them open onto a word document.

    This is our last week to completely finish this wiki chapter, so it's crunch time! We need this to be perfect by Friday (Dec. 4), so we can then put the finishing touches on the showcase. So here are the tasks for this week:

    Marketing: How are we going to arrange the poster, computer(s), handouts, etc. at the showcase? There is a sample table set up in the basement of Hicks Library, I would like to meet with you on Monday to figure out how everything will be situated on Tuesday. Play around with Live Documents, so you know how to use the application and what it can be used for. These questions will be asked to us at the showcase.

    Writers: Our wiki chapter is not done! We need more references at the bottom of the page. Also make sure everything that does not have quotations, is paraphrased! Whether it is paraphrased or in quotations, it is going to need a reference link to the references at the bottom of the page. We will lose lots of points, possibly get a zero on the project, and/or get in big trouble in this class if we are violating any copyright laws! So read through everything and make sure it's PERFECT!

    Instructional Designers: I added the video that our IPs did, and I saw that one picture was added. We need at least 3 more! Add them to various sections in appropriate places. Make sure that all of the links in the wiki work, and please make the headings bold and larger than the other text.

    Evaluators: Your big role with take place at the showcase. There, you will have to go look at two other group's projects. You will be given a packet, and you will have to write a written evaluation on the two other groups. Also you will be asked to evaluate the effectiveness of this project. You will get more information on this later.

    Researchers: Work on your new jobs! (smile)

    Connectors: Work with the marketers on the handouts, poster, t-shirts, ect. for the showcase.

    International Partners: Thanks for the video! Really great job!

    We really need to get work done for the showcase! We'll be done soon enough...
