|The Digital Classroom
This unit shows young students how to properly integrate the use of file management on web servers into the classroom, and how to maintain a digital portfolio. Students are able to carry out complex Internet functions, such as authoring directly onto an Internet domain.
Students will be able to keep a precise record of their work that can be used in conjunction with test results found on ECLAS and The Princeton Review.
Students go online to view multimedia projects,
conduct research, develop content, learn about
storyboarding and view examples; use Flash tutorials,
and view their projects.
Scanners, Macromedia software, Net2FTP, and the Encarta encyclopedia.
This project is aligned with the ISTE NETS technology standards for students (http://iste.org).
This unit includes a portfolio-based system designed to align with the online tracking methods adopted by the NYC Department of Education.
Skills needed are basic technology skills. Students learn clever ways to take their academic responsibilties and meld it with their own imaginations.
Teachers can simply register their own domain and have full control of the Internet traffic, as well as being able to access it anywhere with an Internet connection.
Students participating in this unit can not only learn special technology skills, but are also able to showcase their work for others to review.
