Enhancing Instruction for All Learners
Learning Objective: Learn how to find and incorporate online interactive learning activities to address a variety of learning styles.
Interactive websites are designed to enhance online learning opportunities and engage students in authentic learning processes. They incorporate a wide variety of content, including online video, quiz features, games, and interactive assignments. Some are skill based, but many of these will take a student through a whole lesson (and sometimes a whole unit). These resources can support best practices, engage your learners, and enhance your lessons.
1. Open the graphic organizer you created in the Principles and Instruction activity. As you discover useful resources to add to your lesson, add them to your graphic organizer.
2. There are many different types of Interactives to enhance your lessons. Add the following categories to your graphic organizer: Content interactives and Evaluation and Assessment interactives.
3. Content interactives will depend on what you teach; however many interactives address multiple content activities. Visit each of the following resources, and set a timer at 5-10 minutes so you aren't overwhelmed or buried under too many. The task is to quickly locate several resources for your lesson that will address different strategies and types of learners. You should create a weblink to the specific resource and add a brief description.
4. Evaluation and Assessment interactives are a great time saver as well as a valuable tool in education. From the chart provided below explore one or two and create one assessment to go with your lesson. Add a hyperlink to the assessment (quiz, survey, poll, or rubric) you create to your graphic organizer.
