Planning Stage

Influenced by:

Autonomy:

The element of my practice I'd like to tinker with is....a class project page.

Purpose:

  • Goal - The goal of my effort is to...have an online platform for students to access research happening in the Classroom.


  • Question - The fundamental question I will be exploring is... (draft a focus question and subquestions; be prepared to revise these throughout the challenge)

    • How can lib guides better serve our learning community?
      • What are the options for adding widgets and other outside content within the libguide?
      • How can I make the pages consistent in appearance: uniformity of layout, links, appearance, navigation bars, etc.
      • What options are available within LibGuides for rearranging and/or reformatting existing content?
      • How can I connect LibGuide to existing Teacher/Student environments? RoeperRecord, Wikis, Edmodo, Library Twitter, etc.
      • What pieces of content will make the strongest home page (twitter feed, imaged links to Destiny, etc.)

What ways can a class project page help that I haven't thought of?

Growth:

What artifacts of learning might I collect as evidence of growth...?

(suggestions)
  • anecdotal records
  • student reflections
  • teacher reflections
  • student work samples
  • iterations
  • observations
  • peer/colleague feedback
  • assessment data
    • rubrics
    • other formative pieces...
  • surveys
  • counts
  • more...
