Summary of Implementation:
Prezi: I have been using prezi for most of my high school and
college career. I think it is a great way to present information in a
fun and aesthetic way. I would use it in my classroom to introduce
or teach topics that have multiple points that need explanation. I
can create one that is a fun theme so that it will grab the
student’s attention and hopefully result in them paying more
attention. Writing on the white board can get boring, so this is a
fun alternative. I can even create games or activities on it. For
example, I can put a math problem on each slide and let the class
solve it, then show them the correct answer. I can also do spelling
slides like putting 4 different ways of spelling ‘beautiful’ and have
the class pick the correct one, and then show them the correct
answer.
Class Dojo: I discovered this site using the suggested Facebook
page link in this week’s discussion board. Out of curiosity, I
checked it out and made an account to see what it was like. I
ended up really liking to concept! Each student gets a fun avatar
that I may let them pick (unless that creates too many problems).
This will get the students excited about the concept because
being able to be a monster, even virtually, is cool to kids. I am
able to give or take away points for specific behavior which I can
use as a motivation tool. Nobody wants to have the least points in
the class or even close to last, therefore I’m hoping they will be
able to better their behavior with the hopes of receiving extra
points. I always enjoyed with my teachers gave out points, prizes,
buttons, etc for good behavior so I think it’s a fun way to keep
students behaved and on task.
