Tech Tac Toe Tools O Tech, Tac, Toe Tools – 9 points – due June 10 (presented in class same day) O The purpose of this assignment is for candidates to demonstrate their skills related to the use and integration of technology and their respective grade levels and areas of certification by creating three technology activities using Web 2.0 tools. These tools will be submitted through candidates’ websites. Each tool also requires a blog entry explaining your lesson, your opinion/recommendation of the tool and the example itself imbedded. O *Candidate Choice must be approved by Instructor prior to start
Tech Tac Toe Tools O Requirements: 1. Create a sample of the technology tool you have chosen. For example if you were showing “BibMe” you would create a sample bibliography. If you were showing “Prezi” you would create a sample Prezi. 2. Add a link to your sample (embed the sample) on your professional website. You may choose to have all three samples together on one page of the website or give each tool their own page 3. Create a separate blog post for each tech tool (a total of 3 blog posts). Give some background on what your sample is showing us. Reflect on the tool: was it easy to learn and use? Can you see it helping with student instruction? Would you use it in your classroom? Embed or place a link to your sample for us to see. Remember: the best blog posts should be written for total strangers!
