Over the course of our 3 days together, we would like to make sure that you leave with something practical that you can use when you return to school on Monday. As you get to know the various participants in the course, and we work through the different ideas presented, you will have three options for your project. We recommend you work in groups, but you may work alone if you prefer. Here are the options:

1. Design a Project

  • Use the Understanding by Design process to design a technology-rich unit that follows the Technology Design Cycle and builds student understanding of the essential 21st century skills we discussed.
  • Share your project with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your project here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

2. Develop a Rubric

  • Using a project you have already designed, develop an improved rubric that will help clarify your expectations to your students.
  • Share your rubric with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your rubric (and accompanying project materials) here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

3. Create an Exemplar

  • With a project you have already designed in mind, create an exemplar with a technology tool you want to explore.
  • Share your exemplar with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your exemplar (and accompanying project materials and rubric) here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.
