Learning with Technology
Area of Inquiry
The area of inquiry for this project is written communications between teacher and student. The goal is to improve communications between student and teacher so that longer-term asynchronous communications may be carried on. I currently use writing prompts with my math students to get a better idea about how they are doing in class and how they view themselves as learners in the class. I did have them create a weekly report, turned in every class period, but the comments and questions were not as in-depth as I would have liked, and I didn't have an easy way to check back on what the students had written a couple of months ago.
The construction will be a web-accessible method for communication between teacher and students.
Specific technology will be FrontPage® database bots and Active Server Pages. The ASP code will either be modifications of FrontPage ASP or prewritten ASP scripts. In addition, I will look at other possible software, such as web logs, Manila, etc.
I am a member of two appropriate list servers. The first is the Independent School Educators List (ISED-L), and the second is Wizards-l, the list for technical staff of independent schools.
Several other teachers at the school are interested in doing the same thing, so I will teach and review my results with them.
