Debating Slavery: Blended Learning Project
As coordinator of K-12 Projects for the Institute for Learning Technologies from 1994-7, I helped design and facilitate the Design Studio Cycle, a two-week project development seminar followed by an ADDIE sequence over the following year. I have adapted this model for my own practice, with different levels of involvement in teacher projects. I co-developed this project remotely with a 7th Grade Social Studies teacher. It combined Internet research strategies with role-playing of historical figures to debate slavery in a pre-Civil War context.
Below are artifacts from this proejct, developed through Skype meetings and a project management intranet developed with Drupal's Open Atrium.
