WEBSITE AND CLASSROOM BLOG CREATION TOOLS

Name: Matt Richardson


Directions: Using the template below, describe how students could use a blog, wiki, or other website-
creation tool to learn required learning standards in your content area: For an A grade provide an idea that
reaches a Level of Technology Implementation of 4 or above. Remember higher levels (4-6) require that
students assume adult/professional roles; engage in higher-order thinking; and use technology
create/publish original content for their classmates and/or others beyond their school/classroom. The
learning activities and products should be engaging and meaningful to the students and to others who will
view/use/benefit from students work. Review your handouts on Engaged Learning, Authenticity, and LoTi.

ISTE Standard 6- Creative Communicator: Students communicate clearly and express themselves
creatively for a variety of purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media
appropriate to their goals.

Brief Description of Learning Experience: What learning standards will be addressed? What will
students and teachers do? What products will students create? How will the project be introduced? How
long will it take to complete? What audience will use/care about the product(s) students are creating? How
broad is this audience? (Overview should be a minimum of 2 paragraphs).

At the end of the Civil Rights unit, I will introduce this project. The teacher will hand a list of important
Civil Rights activists and leaders. The students will choose an individual for their project. For their project,
the students will create a blog or Weebly page for that individual. I will give them five days to work on it
and on the fifth day, the students will present their website.
The website should include five additional pages, early life, political life (if any), importance to Civil
Rights Movement and fun facts. The last page should include a link to the students Quizlet assessment
over their individual. The students will be required to include 2-3 pictures per page to give the audience
visual effects. The audience for this project is anyone who is interested in learning about the numerous
Civil Rights Leaders.

Student Engagement/Level of Technology Implementation (LoTi): What LoTi would this lesson be and
Why? This lesson plan will be on the Loti Level 3. Students are engaged in higher-order of thinking by
creating a website. The instruction is student-centered where they are doing the learning but the learning
can be guided by the teacher. It is also LoTi level 3 because students are creating multiple media projects
where thinking is involved such as research. This activity also reaches to LoTi level 4. Students are

participating in meaningful and authentic lesson plans that create a product outside the classroom.

Importance of technology: Why is using a website-creation tool critical to the project? Could the project
be completed without this technology? What would be lost without using it? What other types of
technology, if any, are going to be used in the learning experience? Technology is critical to this project
because they are using it to research and complete their website. It would be hard to complete this without
technology. A lot of information would be lost without using technology.
Inspiration (optional): If you used existing example as a model for your project (whether in part or
whole), include the URL(s) so we can visit. Explain what concepts you borrowed from others.

Internet Safety and Student Privacy: Briefly discuss some possible issues surrounding Internet safety and
student privacy that could arise while implementing this learning experience and explain how you would
(1) minimize risks to students/yourself; (2) alleviate any fears by parents/administrators, and (3) follow
common Internet Safety/Acceptable Use Policies.
During this learning experience, I asked the students do not put their picture on the website also I asked
them not to use their last name in creating this project. This will
Describe your personal learning goal for this activity. What are you trying that you have not tried
before? What do you hope to learn from this activity? How do you hope it will help students learn?
I hope the students are able to learn more about the Civil Rights Movement. Not only about the leaders but
how the movement effected the individual. I hope this activity allows the student to understand there are
multiple ways to bring about change.
