Josiah, Your portfolio page is still incomplete. However because your curriculum map is complete and gives you a clear direction move forward - and back fill this as you have time. It will be important for you to have references.

Hi Josiah,

What I liked about your unit so far is that it is a very important topic and you provide your learners with tangible products and experiences they will walk away with. Having the learners actually try out the technology as they learn is a very valuable inquiry-based learning process. Often, I think teachers walk away from lessons on technology feeling daunted by the task of setting things up and trying them out. You provide a clear opening for that.

One thing you might consider doing is giving more procedure for how to set up the account. You could also combat this issue by framing the task earlier in the first lesson so that the learners feel like they have more direction. Additionally, could you formulate the reflection part of the task as questions for the learner to answer as they go through it?

Nice work so far! Rebecca

Hi Josiah, I thought the video you chose helped to build a solid platform of reasons as to why a teacher might want to use Edmodo. The website you included was also really helpful. I wonder if you had considered adding an element that had to do with student collaboration since you mentioned collaboration at the top of the page. What would you like them to do after they've built their profile on Edmodo? It looks like you picked some great tools for your unit!

Josiah,

I thought your topic was great and a really enjoyed your course thus far. I am familiar with edmodo and I think it's a great tool to understand and use, so I love that you chose it! I also like how with your course you not only use different tools, but show examples of how they can be used as well. For someone who has never used something like edmodo, they would have no idea what it was or how helpful it can be when used. I also liked how you used graphics in your mini course - perhaps add a few more just to keep the page visually exciting and engaging for the learner.

Overall, great job so far! Jamie
