Reflection: Lesson Planning Is "Knowing Stuff" Obsolete - Essay - Section 2: Activity


If time allowed, rather than have students write an essay, I would have had students use the program Google Sketch up to create a 3D model of their ideal school and present their ideas to administration either in person or via video.  This would have allowed me to bring in some engineering practices into the lesson and let students of like opionions collaborate to design a better learning enviornment.  It would be interesting to see what the students came up with...hopefully next year!
