Finding Students Who Learn with Media
Bull, Glen; Alexander, Curby; Ferster, Bill
Learning & Leading with Technology, v37 n5 p36-37 Feb 2010
Student-created media offer significant opportunities for engagement and learning. For the past five years, the authors have explored ways to incorporate Web-based authoring tools into the curriculum. In this article, they discuss PrimaryAccess, a suite of online tools that provides students with access to primary source documents on websites such as those for the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian. The realization that students respond in different ways to the authoring of media can allow teachers to provide instruction and assign tasks that best meet their individual needs. In the future, the ability to analyze student activity through online tools may provide teachers with feedback about students' time management and use of media, facilitating differentiation of instruction, and enhancement of learning.
