Unit III Lesson I -- Integrating GoAnimate in the classroom
In order to integrate technology into our lessons we need to consider the NYS learning standards for technology. Although many of our students have exposure to computer systems at home, many do not and the only experience they have may be in school.
New York State Learning Standards
- Students will apply technological knowledge and skills to design, construct, use, and evaluate products and systems to satisfy human and environmental needs.
- Key Idea: Computers, as tools for design, modeling, information processing, communication, and system control, have greatly increased human productivity and knowledge.
Consider your subject area, a way to get ideas for other uses for GoAnimate is to search their site. When you search use key words that may draw out animations for example, if I was looking for an animation on cell theory I would begin with Cells, when I did this I found the following:
When I looked at the animation there were several issues with the text. Look at the animation and come up with ways to change the existing animation or design ideas for what this may have been a lesson for.
