Reflection: Student Self-Assessment CAPSTONE: Population and environment by design (2 of 2) - Section 2: DAYS FIVE AND SIX-PROTOTYPE + BABY SHARK TANK: Student presentations


Video capture of student presentations is the most effective tool for improving the clarity of feedback.  When students are able to see and hear their work, they are more easily able to understand critical feedback from the teacher and peers and make necessary adjustments.  One tool that I have experimented with year as an Edtech Evaluation Fellow with New York City's iZone is Swivl.  Swivl allows for 360 degree, hands-free capture of presentations.

CAPSTONE: Population and environment by design (2 of 2)

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 16 of 16

Objective: In this Capstone project, students will be able to: 1) collaborate with peers to develop a rigorous public presentation; 2) describe an area of interest where human population impacts the environment; 3) articulate the key features of the human population in the chosen area using data visualizations; 4) identify problems in an area caused by human population growth; 5) develop solutions to problems identified 6) identify the research necessary to better understand potential solutions; 7) publicly present to an audience; 8) provide rigorous feedback to presenting groups; 9) self-assess proficiency using rubrics and captured video; 10) and revise in-class presentations as standalone screencasts present iterate screencast publish

Big Idea: Human population growth impacts the environment . How might develop an engaging presentation about an area that elucidates the problems and potential solutions to problems posed by a constantly growing human population?
