Digital Learning Day 2/1/12

How did Nespelem School participate in Digital Learning Day?

All our 6 7 8 classes work in Google Apps. Reading classes read online and took shared notes in a Google Doc, including key words (vocabulary and main idea), following up with questions/answers, conclusions, and generalizations all ready for class discussion and all related to the grade level expectations.

Writing class in grade eight peer reviewed novels, commenting in the shared documents on powerful writing and suggesting areas that need more clarity. 

The sixth graders worked on their Tech Project: preparing to teach our fifth graders to use Google Apps and to be digital citizens. They collaborated on a Google Doc to create a direction sheet (how-tos for Apps use, how to be digital citizen, and how to create a Valentines project). They then created their own model and Welcome Presentation to teach the fifth grade students. As all students worked, the teacher offered comments of success and suggestions for improvement based on the individual's current progress. 

Students learned about MOTT: My Own Topic Time, a project for researching a question/hypothesis in a topic of their choice. 

And from our fourth grade teacher, Ms Armstrong-Montes: "We use the document camera/computer for the Word Structure part of our Imagine It! Reading lesson.  This week were are working on adjectives, comparatives and superlatives.  We are also working on antonyms and words with the Greek root graph (biography, autobiography, photograph, mimeograph).  Later in the reading lesson students put their personal response under the document camera for the question:  What is the longest trip that you have taken?  Describe the best parts of the trip and the worst parts of the trip.  As students were reading their responses on the screen, they were able to self-correct some of the spelling and grammar errors."
