Day 20 Stop Motion animation-3 (optional class meeting)

Today’s class meeting is optional. Please find the best place and time for your group to work on your project.

What to do today

  • Finishing making all the props you need for the project.

Preparing for Tuesday

  1. Bring your student ID with you. You may need to use it to check out tripods or other types of equipment for your project from OIT (232 Aderhold)
    • It turns out that OIT does not have adapters for phones, so the tripod may not be that useful for you. They do have iPad adapters, and maybe you can find ways to mount your phone to the tripod.
  2. In case you need it now, our class YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyJsjzedgqMXv1Hpp4gbSdQ, and the account name is ouredit2000@gmail.com. Look for the password in class.
  3. If you are looking for background music, bensound.com is a good source of royalty free music.
  4. As always, if you have questions or concerns about this course, talk to me before you leave, or send me an email at lh81655@uga.edu.

Day 19 Stop Motion animation-2

Unfortunately, students from the other EDIT 2000 class have given away most of their MakerSpace artifacts, so there’s now no point to visit their class…

Day 18 Stop Motion animation

Invitation to participation in our research on self-efficacy

An introduction to the research.

Stop Motion animation

Click on this link for the project guideline.

What to do today

  1. Form groups of 3-4 people.
  2. Choose a topic that matches a Georgia Performance Standard or Common Core State Standard. (The best topics are ones that show cycles, systems, formulas, strategies, processes, etc.)
  3. Start drawing your storyboard or writing your script.

Storyboard

A storyboard is a sequence of drawings, typically with some directions and dialogue, representing the shots planned for a movie or television production. What will be on the background? What will we hear? What will we see?

You do not need to draw screens (It will be fun if you do!) but you should plan what props and narration you will include in different screens.

  • Create your storyboard as a Google Slide, add a slide for each sequence, work on your Google slide collaboratively.
    OR
  • You can also create your storyboard as a Google Doc, if you find it more useful.
    OR
  • Just use pen and paper (in which case scan or take a picture and share it from your Google Drive or Dropbox).

Two simple storyboard examples: Example 1 | Example 2

Before we finish Day 3 of the Stop Motion project, turn in the link to your storyboard/script here.

  2. Bring your student ID with you. You may need to use it to check out tripods or other types of equipment for your project from OIT (232 Aderhold)
    • If you plan to use the Stop Motion app on your phone, make sure you check out a phone adapter as well.

Please take no more than 12 minutes for each group.

Day 16 Wonderopolis improved–Optional meeting

Today’s class meeting is optional–Group work is not! Please either come to class or find a place for your group to work together on your Wonderopolis improved project. I will be in the classroom to answer your questions.

For your convenience, here’s the master presentation Google Doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15818bhkCLQMsA0x_5qhHlkGrux6WUFYn40OPT6G9CVQ/edit?usp=sharing Please fill in your presentation information before presenting.

A few things:

  1. We present on the Tuesday after the Spring Break.
  2. Interactive activities are good, but they take time. Since each group has 12 minutes max for the presentation, you need to plan accordingly.
  3. The last project of this semester is about technology integration in real schools. Get back in touch with your grade school teachers early to avoid their Spring Breaks.
  4. Please update your 3rd Genius Hour post before Spring Break.

Day 15 Wonderopolis improved–Questions 3 & 4

Today we discuss Questions 3 & 4 for our Wonderopolis improved project. Make sure for each question, there is at least one person present to represent his/her group.

Question 3 (Discussion starts at 11:05 am)

How can your students evaluate possible conflicting information, or the trustworthiness of a particular source?

Agenda:

  • How’s the group work going?
  • Please briefly summarize your group’s takeaway from the previous day.
  • What is your anticipation of your students’ reaction to conflicting information?
    • What do you do when you observe that some students are very entrenched in one perspective?
    • What do you plan to do when your students don’t agree with each other?
  • What are the ways such conflicts can be resolved? Is there a best way? Or do you have a list of recommendations?
  • Any other questions you may have.

Question 4 (Discussion starts at 11:40 am)

How do you present your answers to the previous questions in the form of an improved version of the wonder of your choice? (You decide how it looks, and what technology you want to use.)

Agenda:

  • Before class, research for possible presentation solutions that we don’t see used in our classrooms often.
  • What are the most important aspect of your projects? These should stand out in your presentation.
    • What would be a really good way to present these?
  • Do you need any technical support? Your classmates may be able to help. And I’ll definitely try to help you.
  • Any other questions you may have.

Preparing for Thursday

  1. Thursday’s class meeting is optional. Find somewhere to do your group work, be it our classroom or some other place.
  2. We present on the Tuesday after the Spring Break.
  3. The last project of this semester is about technology integration in real schools. Get back in touch with your grade school teachers early to avoid their Spring Breaks.
  4. Please update your 3rd Genius Hour post before Spring Break.
