Click here to get back to Unit 3: Using the WISE environment within your classroom
In the end of this course, I would like you to have two final discussions and another that I hope will continue throughout your process of using WISE within your own classroom!
I believe that it is utmost important to reflect upon your learning and learn from one another. I also believe that learning never shall cease. In the case of this course, you can help me grow and learn by helping me edit this course to ensure the utmost sucess for the participants and continually add to the discussion space in this unit.
This Unit was created so that you will:
- demonstrate an understanding of the WISE learning environment as an effective inquiry based science learning environment and how to implement it effectively within your classroom.
- identify ways this course helped you.
- identify ways to make this course better, state them in the discussion, and execute those changes throughout the course.
- elaborate on the ways that WISE is effective within your classroom.
Create an outline of this course, including three of the most important things you learned in each unit and why?
What is one thing that you would change about this course and why? If it is possible to change it, please do so.
AFter you chose and started implementing your project within your classroom. Come back here to list ideas, problems, and questions you have about your project.
Together Everyone Achieves MOre.
This course was developed and can still be developed with your help. I hope that you share this with other science teachers, to help them become more familiar with WISE and use it within their classrooms. I look forward to seeing the changes that we make within this course to make your project and this course more effective. Thank you!
