Reflection: Complex Tasks Our Blue Planet - Section 5: Wrap Up


Post Computer Lab Observations:

Students did not complete the webquest observations in the computer lab. They were excited about looking at the images, reading the information about the rivers. They definitely liked going on Google Earth, which became a distraction for some. 

In the computer lab students were working at their own computer. There was more collaboration when the students worked in groups of 3 on the lap tops.

Next time, teams will jig saw the webquest, each becoming an expert for their district's deltas, glaciers, lakes, or landforms. I will also start the webquest, by modeling the different activities that are expected of them, to help scaffold the directions.
