 participants  homework  difficulty


Product 

Not everything needs to be:  worksheet  exercises  written

project

Focus on interest & mode of expression

Your teaching asynchronously  Jing

(www.jingproject.com/)or Smartboard Recorder  Link distributed to students  http://screencast.com/t/TEvnh8YRI  download

 Can

to portable devices

view anytime, anywhere


Someone else’s teaching  Don’t

assume students will look  Create “Best of” resources on your wiki  YouTube  Blocked?

Student can view at home, download to device or teacher can download at home & put in Powerpoint
