Discussion #4: Presentation and Remixing Tools

When presenting, students have to demonstrate knowledge and an understanding of the topic. As with many presenting tools today the students can find information online and remix information in the form of videos, text, images and sound. As a teacher it is important to ask a few questions at the end of each presentation to ensure the students understand the topic assigned as it is easy to merely repost information without generating knowledge or understanding.  Planning a presentation includes some organizing of materials including making an outline with what order to present in. Group work is an important skill for dynamic workforces in the future, and presenting skills are essential.

My “ah ha” moment must have been after spending a whole day trying to figure out various pages, reading teacher blogs, and watching YouTube videos as resources for how to use these tools in education, and I had decided on Globster, BUT I COULD NOT GET IT TO WORK!!! The day came to an end and I slept on it for a few days and was debating on what tool to change it too, as Globster seemed inevitably very difficult to create. However, the page must have been down that day as none of the problems I experienced that day reoccurred. Nevertheless, this made me think of what one would do in case a page you have decided to use as a teacher is down. (No matter what tool one chooses to utilize).

An additional, pretty similar, tool as Glogster is TACKK. Instead of a visual poster board as Glogster TACKK is a page that extends downwards as you build on it. It has the same functions of being able to add video, text, music, images, and so on. TACKK can be useful as the students can collaborate at the end of the page in the comment sections rather than stating a new page as I suggest in my Glogster PBL.

Assignment 5: Presentation and Remixing Tools -Glogster

After doing some research of various presentations tools, such as Prezi, HaikuDeck, Glogster, and TACKK I chose Glogster as a way for my students to make a presentation and present with.  I will also do a demonstration utilizing Globster as a tool to present the lecture to the 6th-8th grade students. The lesson plan is about Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

As a teacher I will have the Glogster page open on the projector as the students enter the classroom.   I will do a quick presentation myself and go over the material on the Glogster page, explain how the endocrine system works, and discuss some of the differences between Type1 and Type 2 Diabetes. I have one video (1:05 min) supporting how the body uses insulin to break down glucose for energy and a document displaying the main differences between Type1 and Type 2 Diabetes as I speak.

Total Time:7-10min.

Students will be engaged by the assignment where they are to make their own Globster page in groups of three. I will distribute various topics, such as:

  • Research and compare the genetic components, prevalence, treatment options, and long-term effects of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
  • Compare similarities and differences between the two types of diabetes.
  • Body structure and functions related to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and the cause of both diseases.
  • Research and compare the level of prevention between the two types of diabetes.
  • Make a treatment plan for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
  • Demonstrate how the pancreas works and how it relates to either type of diabetes.
  • Display how the various treatments will affect the pancreas, body functions, and related organs.

Total Time to Work as Groups:15-20min.

The students will present their findings as groups.

Time Presenting: 3-5 min per groups.

Here is my Glogster presentation with an idea for an assignment at the end for students to complete and present.

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Glogster

Lesson Plan -Health Ed.: Diabetes, Poll Everywhere

Teacher: Katrine Nordstrom
Date: 9/29/14
Subject area / course / grade level: Health Education, Poll Everywhere, Diabetes Awareness, 7th grade
Materials: Computers, Poll Everywhere, Lesson books, Projector

 

TEKS/SEs:

  • 115.23. Health Education, Grades 7-8: a1-2, b2B, b3A-C, b4A-C, b8A-B, b9A-B, b12A-C,G).
Lesson objective(s):

  • Differentiate between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Recognize warning signs for both types of Diabetes
  • Know what the students can do to lower their chances of getting Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Know the long-term effects of both types of Diabetes.
  • Introduce Poll Everywhere (they have already seen how it works during the introduction quiz).
  • Assess peers and provide explanations as needed.
ENGAGEMENT:

  • Start lesson with 10 questions from Poll Everywhere. (6-8 min.)
  • Students answer by texting in their responses.
  • This will also function as a quiz for the daily reading assignment.   (Evaluation of HW)
  • Students ask themselves: What are some of the similarities and differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?
EXPLORATION:

  • Students, in groups of 4-5 people, will make their own Poll Everywhere quizzes, consisting of 5 questions.
  • Each group is assigned a focus. I.e. each group has 3-5 pages to identify key points.
  • Students will be summarizing the main concepts from their assigned pages.
  • Student will be focusing on similarities and differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
EXPLANATION

  • While making questions, students will determine how to best generate if “their students” have a deep understanding of the topics assigned.
  • Ask students to evaluate other students’ knowledge. They might need to inquire about more information regarding some of the short answers given in the poll, and provide explanations if some peers are wrong in their answers.
ELABORATION

  • Students will develop a deeper understanding of the topics, as they have to summarize their reading into short questions, and of course know the answers.
  • By answering the other groups’ questions (covering other topics besides their own) all the key points in the chapter will be covered by the end of class and students will check for understanding among peers.
  • Vocabulary is expected to be professional generating a sophisticated understanding of the concepts.
EVALUATION

  • Ask students how creating this poll got them thinking in a different way.
  • Ask students what was difficult developing the poll questions, and what they cannot evaluate by looking at the other students’ answers in their section. (The short quiz answers assess the peers basic knowledge of the material but do NOT illuminate if they have a deep understanding of the subject matter (i.e. how the pancreas works and details regarding diabetes treatments))
  • The students’ answers to the polls are to be used for evaluation in addition to the 10 introductory questions the teacher demonstrated. (Approximately 30-40 questions total)
  • Ask the students if they think teaching is easy.

 Example Poll

PBL Units -Health Education

  • Identify your grade level and content area:

Health Education, Middle School (6th-8th grade)

  • Identify your general topic (specific content topic or theme:

Topic- Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, related body function, organs, and structure

(TEKS: §115.22. Health Education, Grade 6: a1, b1B-C, b2A, b3B-C, b4B, b6A-B, b8A. §115.23. Health Education, Grades 7-8: a1-2, b2B, b3A-C, b4A-C, b8A-B, b9A-B, b12A-C,G).

  • PBL unit #1

Guiding Question:

How can we best demonstrate the similarities and differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?

During this section the students are to:

  • Research and compare the genetic components, prevalence, treatment options, and long-term effects of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
  • Compare the similarities and differences between the two types of diabetes.
  • Body structure and functions related to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and the cause of both diseases.
  • Research and compare the level of prevention between the two types of diabetes.
  • Make a treatment plan for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
  • Access government websites for statistical information.
  • Choose your medium for presentation to best compare and contrast the two diseases.
  • Present your findings.

Deliverable:

  • Make an awareness campaign for either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.
  • PBL unit #2

Guiding Question:

I wonder how we get energy from the food we eat?

How can you make a model to demonstrate how the pancreas works? How can you display how the pancreas is related to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes?

During this section the students are to:

  • Build a model demonstrating how the pancreas works and how it relates to either types of diabetes. Check in with teacher to let me know your choice. (This will also be my way of making sure everyone is on the right track before they start building)
  • Explain how the disease specifically affects the body in your choice of diabetes.
  • Display how the various treatments will affect the pancreas, body functions, and nearby organs.
  • Present your findings.

Deliverable:

  • A working model of the pancreas and related organs demonstrating how it is affected by either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.
  • You will be graded on an overall understanding of how the pancreas works and what happens in the body to a patient who develops either type of diabetes.
  • Briefly explain what Texas K-12 teaching standards (TEKS), your PBL units would be covering.

TEKS: §115.22. Health Education, Grade 6: a1, b1B-C, b2A, b3B-C, b4B, b6A-B, b8A. §115.23. Health Education, Grades 7-8: a1-2, b2B, b3A-C, b4A-C, b8A-B, b9A-B, b12A-C,G.

  • Briefly explain how you will leverage your own TPACK to facilitate instruction for the two PBL ideas.

We will have a class blog where I will post guidelines for each assignment, what TEAKS we are working on, and grading rubrics. I would like the groups to document all their work and findings through blogging. For the individual groups’ work, they can work and communicate with whatever media they prefer, be it email, blogging, wiki page, or similar workspace.

Misconceptions between Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

Here is an educational video of what Type 1 Diabetes is:

Type 1 Diabetes

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). It is often confused with Type 2 diabetes, which has gotten A LOT of attention through media and public awareness campaigns. Understandably so, as there has been somewhat of an epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes, more importantly Type 2 Diabetes is related to lifestyle and is thus preventable AND reversible. Type 1 is neither of those things.

The main differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes:

In summary:

  • Type 1 Diabetes usually affects young patients, while Type 2 mostly affects the older population.
  • Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks its own body’s insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, while Type 2 is often due to obesity.
  • Type 1 is permanent, while Type 2 can be reversible with exercise and a healthy diet.
  • Patients with Type 1 are insulin dependent for the rest of their life, without insulin they will die, while Type 2 is merely insulin resistant.
  • There is no cure for Type 1!

 

I wish media would make an effort of differentiating these two diseases when creating their materials to reduce the confusion amongst the public.
