Reflection: Organizational Systems CASE STUDY: California's delta (1 of 3) - Section 3: ENGAGE: Students frame the lesson


There are numerous edtech solutions to the problems teachers encounter when trying to manage student workflow in a blended classroom.  One easy strategy I use is a student form submission system.  First I create a form for students to use to submit links to their electronic Google documents. Here is what this form looks like for this assignment.  The form asks for the following:

  1. A students enters a name
  2. A cohort (class)
  3. The url that links to the student's electronic document.  NOTE: This document must be shared with the teacher!

All students should share this document during the ENGAGE activity.  

Once all students have shared documents, the teacher has an easily accessible list of student assignments.  What makes this list useful is that it is dynamically updated. A teacher always accesses the most recent version of a student's work.  There is no need to resubmit.

NOTE: Doctopus is a Google "add-on" that accomplishes a similar management structure and more, and may be worth exploring for tech savvy educators.  Below is one of many publicly available Doctopus tutorials:

CASE STUDY: California's delta (1 of 3)

Unit 3: Environmental justice
Lesson 10 of 16

Objective: Students will be able to 1) define a delta and 2) explain the key features of California's delta through the lens of environmental protection.

Big Idea: Scientists use geographic information systems to develop maps of important features of physical geography. How might we use the California delta as a case study of how maps can be arguments for stakeholders’ ideas about how to use the environment?
