Group Reflections What we learned Using technology for communication and production How to truly rely on others What we enjoyed Learning more about our topic Having the opportunity to focus on a need for students today (bullying awareness) Challenges: Time constraints Amount of work involved
Amy's Reflection I learned...... what a traveling trunk was and how it could easily be implemented in the classroom. I liked....... working as a group to complete an assignment and working on google docs at the same time. I did not like...... writing a narrative for it seemed every single aspect of the assignment.
Ramey's Reflection I learned... New technology for collaboration Resources to add to my S.S. classroom I liked... Working with and learning from my group Learning more about our topics I did not like... High stress levels created by having to work on multiple assignments and exercises simultaneously
Crystal's Reflection I learned... how to juggle a busy schedule and work as I go (milestones) I liked... working with others our topic I did not like... narratives the # of milestones
