Create 4 – Build Portable Learning Objects

Create:Using your lesson topic, build two high quality, reusable learning objects.

Artifact: Link to the two high quality, reusable learning objects build by you.

Answer:What is the intended use of your learning objects?  How might the objects be used in an online or blended classroom?

 

Quizlet the intended use for this learning object is a study tool for vocabulary. This can be used in a variety of ways by the students. They can use them as flash cards to help them learn/study. There is also a matching game that allows you to beat your best time and/or compete with others that are doing the same set of words.  Quizlet can be used both online and in a blended classroom. Online you can assign the study set to the class as a whole and they can compete with each other for quickest match time.  In a blended classroom, the teacher can use the Quizlet Live mode, which allows students to work collaboratively to match the term with definition.

 

Vocabulary.com the intended use for this learning object is a tool to acquire and learn vocabulary. This is a great tool for English teachers and history teachers as students can learn vocabulary prior to reading a selected reading, which will ultimately help with comprehension. The great thing about vocabulary.com is as a teacher you can see who is completing vocab set assignments, as well as what are each students trouble words and the class as a whole. The tool also ranks the users by the most points ( the more you go over vocab/get them right, the more points you accrue) As a teacher, both online and blended, you can create a weekly leader board. Giving Kudos and creating a sense of competition.

I am unable to directly link you to my created lists, as you have to be one of my assigned students. Please see the picture belowvocab com
