3 About Me As a third-year Health Education teacher at Ganesha High School in Pomona, California I have found that Technology is a useful tool in the learning process. With a Masters Degree from Azusa Pacific University in Educational Technology I plan on continuing my use of technology in my classroom teachings. This project is one of what I hope will be the beginning of many more activities for our students to use in today’s technologically advanced world.

4 Assignment Description This CTAP 295 project was designed with my Health Education students to explore the effects of Caffeine and Nicotine on the mind and body. Twenty students were selected to participate in the Activity. It was designed to be both educational and interactive for the student.

5 Standards Addressed Challenge Standards for High School Health Education Standard 1: The student understands and demonstrates ways in which his or her health and well-being can be enhanced and maintained. Standard 3: The student will understand and demonstrate behaviors that reduce the risk of becoming involved in potentially dangerous situations and will know how to react to situations in ways that help to protect his or her health. Standard 9: The student will know how to identify products, services, and information that may be helpful or harmful to his or her health. Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

6 Standards Addressed Challenge Standards for High School Health Education Standard 1: The student understands and demonstrates ways in which his or her health and well-being can be enhanced and maintained. Students in high school who meet this standard will be able to evaluate food choices that can promote optimal health and reduce the risk of disease.

7 Standards Addressed Challenge Standards for High School Health Education Standard 3: The student will understand and demonstrate behaviors that reduce the risk of becoming involved in potentially dangerous situations and will know how to react to situations in ways that help to protect his or her health. Students in high school who meet this standard will be able to examine the influence of tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use on performing physical tasks and making judgements.

8 Standards Addressed Challenge Standards for High School Health Education Standard 9: The student will know how to identify products, services, and information that may be helpful or harmful to his or her health. Students in high school who meet this standard will be able to analyze the influence of advertising and marketing on the selection of healthful and nutritional products.

9 Educational Objectives By the end of the lesson, the students will have an increased understanding of the physical and psychological effects of caffeine, nicotine and other related stimulants. The student will show at least a five percent increase in understanding of this subject area in comparison to the pre and post tests. Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

10 Overview of Student Activities Introductory Activity A ten-question multiple-choice Pre-Test will be administered prior to the Activity. Enabling Activity The student will learn through various online experiences and readings the importance of the effects of caffeine and nicotine on the mind and body. Culminating Activity A ten-question Post-Test will be conducted to identify what students have learned on the effects of caffeine and nicotine on the human body and an information table will be created showing student improvement.

13 Grade Distribution Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

14 Lesson Evaluation Students showed a 31% improvement from their Pre- Test scores. On average, their scores improved from 7 to 9 points. There were no “Failures”. The interactivity of the lesson proved positive that technology and using the Internet helped to improve their test scores. Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

15 Revisions to Lesson Add more informative “links”. Lower the amount of text for our “Visual Learners.” Add additional Graphics/Animation and Interactivity for future sites. Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

16 What I have Learned Web-based activities are effective tools for our student learning. Preparation for just one lesson can be time- consuming at first, but the positive results are well worth it. We should be doing more activities like these for our students. Dwayne Yamato, CTAP 295 Technology in the Classroom

17 Final Reflections There’s more to come... My future plans are to create additional sites for my Health instruction based on what I have learned throughout my CTAP 295 “experience.” This project has provided me with an invaluable amount of knowledge on Web Design and the Implementation of Technology in the Classroom Curriculum.
