Branching Out: A Selection of Tools (February 9 - February 15)

In this session, participants will consider the applicability and use of a movie animation tool. They will also select one of three other web tools to develop a lesson plan appropriate to their context. Participants will post their lesson plans and example uses of the tools on their blogs for feedback.

1) Develop a lesson plan using a movie animation tool or any other web tool explored in the session. 

2) Provide strong support for the selection of tools based on the learning outcomes of a lesson. 

3) Offer critical and supportive feedback on the potential effectiveness of integrating a web tool in lessons through comments on blogs. 

4) Solve issues related to the application of selected tools.
