525-Session 10--Facilitating and Implementing Online Professional Development

Welcome to Session 10 where we will be delving more deeply into tools and resources that can be used for 'Flipping' your classroom.

BECAUSE WE MET LAST WEEK WE WILL BE PUSHING WEEK 10's READING IN THE SYLLABUS TO WEEK 11.  PLEASE COMMENT AND REFLECT UPON THE CONTENT POSTED BELOW. ALSO, I'VE JUST BEEN NOTIFIED THAT THE DATE FOR OUR FINAL PROJECTS MUST FIT IN LINE WITH A PARTICULAR SCHEDULE, SO CHANGE THE PREVIOUS DATE (12/8) TO THE NEW DATE (12/15).  PLEASE ADJUST YOUR SCHEDULE ACCORDINGLY.  ASSUME WE WILL BE AT THE PROV. CAMPUS UNLESS NOTIFIED DIFFERENTLY.

As some of you mentioned in your comments and reflections under Session 8, flipping an entire course, or training program, may not be the ideal scenario. Video lectures should be brief and clearly focused on specific learning outcomes.  (and not all lessons are meant to be 'flipped')  What you really want to do is slowly transition your teaching style so that you can begin to take advantage of the 'flipping concept' without getting too overwhelmed.

Several of you commented on the 'up-front' workload involved.  This is a significant factor when you are taking all of the work on yourself, but as I've preached many times this semester--'no man is an island'.  You can, and should, take advantage of the vast trove of videos and interactive lessons that others have created and integrate them to reduce your workload. As I said in Session 8, 'Stand on the shoulders of giants'.

Also this semester, we have lightly touched upon the concept of 'open educational resources' or OER's.  The concept of 'Openness' becomes extremely powerful when you begin to access videos, tools, and resources that have been created by others and are freely licensed.  They allow you to not only use the work of others, but often allow you to modify, remix, and reuse material for your own purposes.  Once you begin to dive more deeply into these resources you'll begin to see how much easier it will become to educate others.

Just like when we spoke about using wikis as a knowledge base or as an eTextbook.  If you start off small, and slowly, then your momentum can build. Also, if you can find a partner or peer group to collaborate with, then your project can really pick up some speed.

Let's start off this session by looking at some teachers that have used Google Docs in a practical setting and hear about their path to success.  It's about an hour long webinar.  Please stop at minute 36 to take a break and experiment with a few of the resources that they have mentioned up to that point, then post any comments or reflections here before going back to the webinar to finish it.


Click on this image to begin. Please follow the directions closely when downloading the necessary software. This may take awhile, so you may want to multi-task as its working. It it still doesn't run, then follow the next step software download. (If you can't open the .collab file, download the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher.
Still can't get into your session? Please read our troubleshooting help topic.)


Next we'll delve more deeply into Google Forms and their ability to streamline your teaching, instruction, and life.

Please go through these in order.  Let's start with,




5- "Google Forms Challenge"  (The directions for this week's 'comments' are in #5.)

Now I gave a lot of thought to the next part of Session 10 and decided to include the content below because a number of you this semester teach at the community college level or work with a population that is similar to what is called, "ABE" (Adult Basic Education).

Therefore, you have a choice for the second half of this week's work.  You may spend it  hearing from, learning from, and discussing the connections that we can make, with three professors participating on a panel called, "Contextualized Curriculum for Developmental and Adult Basic Education (ABE) at Community Colleges"


Click on the image above to view Part 2. Please follow the directions closely when downloading the necessary software.

Please take your time going through this webinar and come back a second time when you are finished to complete your week's comments and reflections below.

OR

you can continue with your training on the 'flipped classroom' by participating in the "Flipped Classroom Pathway" here on Sophia.org    You'll learn how to use videos and podcasts as instructional tools to increase student engagement and support. The Flipped Classroom Pathway is designed to make the best use of face-to-face time with students while also providing them the opportunities to revisit important concepts. Explore the goals and benefits of the flipped classroom to maximize your student learning outcomes.  You'll need to sign up for a free account with Sophia.org, so if the link above doesn't work, then once you are logged into the sight, do a search for either the "Flipped Classroom Pathway" or "What is the Flipped Classroom?"  and then complete all four lessons.  Once you have completed that, come back and share out your thoughts.

Lastly, a little fun.  Visit this site list and play with several of these 'collaboration' tools.  Not all of them are useful for Adult Education, but many are easily transferable across the age spectrum.  Report back to us on one or two of them and whether or not you can see their integration into your future workplace setting.

This week's 'Facilitators' are Tai and Jason.  Good Luck!

I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. I enjoyed the ETLO Webinar on designing an online course with the help of google docs. The presenters used google drive for their project for many of the reasons we discussed previously in our sessions: the organizational and collaborative aspects; easy to create active links (both internal and external); using Google Docs, Spreadsheets, and Presentation elements; they liked the autosave and chat features; easily shared with other collaborators to view and/or edit files; and can retain a copy of the course. There were several great suggestions in the webinar. When working together at the same time, they came up with “best practices” when using Google Drive – Respectful editing, using simple color coding such as putting your additions in blue so the others can change them to black when they are reviewed, and using the chat feature or the phone or video chat. I also liked their “divide and conquer” concept where they broke up the sections and collaborated together so that the different sections go well together. It was also a great suggestion to have a transcript for the videos and also to have a rubric for every assignment.

    1. Paul, I especially like that one is able to divide and conquer but the overall flow of the document is consistent and seamless because one is able to view and edit each others work in real time. This makes it so much easier to put things together, rather than waiting until everyone is done with their piece and THEN trying to tie all the parts together.

    2. Paul, I agree that they are highly organized. This helped me to see more benefits to using Google Docs.

      Luz, having color coding to define each contributor is such an easy method. I have used that feature when working with students. It helps them to be able to "see" me in the document, what it looks like when leaving a comment and how we can both make changes simultaneously. How did we live without these tools?

  2. To all the Veterans out there, I thank you for your service. I hope that God will keep you safe. Paul, I too enjoyed the webinar from the comfort of my treadmill. Many of us in EDC program have collaborated with Google drive and I for one love it. I just posted 2 google forms to my blog, these were made a few semesters ago but I found them helpful when working on a research project. The excel spreadsheet was useful to keep the answers organized and clear. I did not realize you could make rules for them so I will challenge myself with that. For anyone in the Research class this semester or in the future, take a look at my blog as I have been posting helpful videos and information to help you with the literature review. Stay strong friends, we are nearing the finish line!

  3. Challenge #1 I created a form. This was pretty cool. I think you can view it from this link. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1kjQkng_24VRwI093gr5RXvrfXy4dS-H2-ZIfLUTGMZ4/edit

    The tutorial were very helpful. To be honest this is the first time I have been exposed to the world of Google Docs. It is easier than I thought.

    Paul you are right, I also like the autosave!
    Christine your videos have been so helpful. Thank you for posting them to your blog (and emailing me the last couple of ones to).

  6. I have a question: Can a math teacher create a google quiz and then allow the students to import an image (of their written out calculation)to go along with their math answer?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Christine, that is a great question... I really like google forms but it is not 100% math friendly, especially as you move into higher math courses. I have found math extensions (gMath), unfortunately is does not always work as nice as I would like it too. I really like that the form can send an instant grade to the students.

      As far as I know you can not upload a photo into your response, but maybe someone knows something that I do not?

      Here is a link to a geometry google forms I made. I had a few students struggling with proofs, therefore I made this form and I typed helpful reminders for them to read.

  7. I am enjoying the webinar. Many of the features I have been using right along but I am finding that there are alot of other features that I did not know about.
    I like the template idea. I think it is important when creating any kind of documentation to have a consistent look throughout. I agree with the transcript idea and not just for the student. I found when creating my videos, it did not matter how well I knew the information, I still said ummm and uhhh and that is very distracting to the person listening. Having the transcript helped me keep the dialogue moving without any audio fillers!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I really enjoyed the interactive video. I think this would be a really cool assessment/quiz tool to use. I think it would keep the users engaged and a little entertained if they had to choose the correct answer in order to 'find their way through hiring a student' or whatever module they were in. When time permits, I am definitely going to look into this more.

    The forms video was immensely helpful. I am one of those stubborn people who would rather dive in and figure it out than read directions or listen to someone show me something. That's why I am often lost and/or frustrated because something 'doesn't work right!' Because of that, I made myself watch it and I am glad I did. It seems they thought of all scenarios when creating the forms. One thing I didn't like was that - from what I could see, you can only use YouTube videos on the forms and not ones you created yourself. I will investigate that more.

    Overall I like the forms features because you can put everything in one place. The tutorial, the quiz, the responses, graphs and charts. It is a pretty amazing tool!

    Here is the form I created for anyone to take a look if they have time.

  12. Challenge 1 - https://goo.gl/forms/c6HVXHcJywBGx1MH3

    This was my first time creating a Google form. I found it very easy and the process very straightforward.

    I think that I would use a Google form with new students who have been referred to my program. It would be useful to gather some more information on them prior to our first meeting or orientation appointment. By emailing them a form to fill out, they could do so at their own convenience and I would get the results instantly. I also think it's very helpful that the information is automatically transferred and stored into a spreadsheet. This would save me so much time, rather than having to manually enter information into a database. Very neat tool.

    4. I need to be able to choose all options on the last question, please.

      Your idea of emailing out a form sparked an idea for our program. We could easily preregister through our website or via email. People's handwriting is often hard o read but if they are typing responses, that opens up a new world. Since the info can be sent to a spreadsheet, we could then easily create mailing labels. This eliminates the need to hand write and then also enter the information into two separate data bases. You may have created a monster!

  13. Well, I stopped right at 36!! I’m going to give the lesson thus far a go and see how far I can get.

    I created this form to use as an Exit interview or questionnaire for students who have received services from a career services department. I think it is an important tool to evaluate a program that needs to produce results. It is important to know how satisfied students felt with the level of services received and the amount of time it took to place them in an internship. I think using Google forms is more beneficial than using Polleverywhere, for example, because one is able to ask different forms of questions and request short answers. The ability to obtain qualitative data is more important (in my opinion) when asking what people thought and how they felt with regards to their experience in a program.

    1. Ii especially like the idea of showing responses after the survey is taken. The graphs and tables were easy to understand. As Jason had mentioned using the A, B, etc.. on a survey is not conclusive.
      From prior experiences with online classes and evaluations, in one of my classes I forgot to complete the evaluation in the time allotted as oppose to filling it out that day in a f2f class. I guess that is to be expected and I'm sure there are tools in place to rectify those types of issues.

    2. nice job Luz, I like how you are thinking about qualitative data.

    3. I like the option to vary the questions too, Luz. Qualitative data speaks loudly in some arenas so it helps to have it at our fingertips.

      Delete
  16. I agree with Luz. At the end of each course I conduct an exit survey to determine which things worked and which did not. In a traditional class these are done with paper and pencil, but in an online setting it is often the case that it is done online using a survey tool/app. I agree that using a google doc for qualitative feedback could be useful. There are some things which are not learned simply by students selecting A, B, etc... on a survey.

  17. I read through the Open Education Handbook. Open education is the elimination of barriers students face in order to succeed in education. It encourages participation and contribution in an innovative light. The handbook made me think of something I recently read about. There are a lot of new apps available that feature interactive components for education. I know a lot of my classmates are working on projects to aid students in an open education fashion. It is a very good time to be in education – student or instructor. There is no limit to what can be accomplished!!

    1. I used google forms for two main reasons, its functionality and accessibility from anywhere. Out of all the website, blogs, forms and everything else we opened for this class google products seems to be the easiest for navigation and accessibility.
      I set up my form as a mini workshop. I used relevant YouTube instructional videos and I created questions to accompany those videos.
      I'm hoping the videos are entertaining enough to keep the attention of the students as well as basic questions that allow students to reply with what was learned.

  22. I really enjoyed the google doc webinar in creating online courses. It seems very user friendly. I already use google drive and forms a bit in sharing files with my collaborators but have not gone as far as using google doc to create a course. In this webinar I enjoyed seeing the various teaching and assessment tools, respectful editing, video & talk options, spreadsheet that could be used to organize contents, the color coding, setting up folders that help keep work organized and consistent to the syllabus and course contents. I find this tool to be very collaborative that I can use in my training sessions at work. I also like the comment tool which are used to give feedback and is very intuitive.
    I have not made up my mind what to use for my final presentation but as practice using google doc I might use that although, I seem to want to use MOVENOTE. Winnie N.

  23. Hi All,
    I had been posting under the other link for this week and was wondering why I was conversing alone. Here is my post about the resources offered:

    Hi Folks! Hope you are all enjoying the long weekend :)
    I have tried a number of the tools suggested in the webinar this afternoon. First, I tried Screenr, which was suggested in the chat. It is no longer functional so don't bother.

    Second, I tried Screencastomatic. This tool was interesting. I recorded a little piece using the same earbuds/microphone that I use regularly. The outcome surprised me. Here it is: http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cDXIqyjScJ

    Next, I tried Powtoon. This tool will be real useful for quick videos. There are a lot of templates available and assembly is easy. The only thing I was not sure about was where the music was coming from and if I could alter it. I'm guessing that is possible, I just didn't look into it too deeply.

    The third tool was wideo. Unfortunately, this required a paid subscription after a 7 day free trial. For the limited need I have right now, I decided to save my trial until I run out of other free tools to use. There are so many available, this didn't feel like a critical need to me. Also, the tool seems to be for marketing as opposed to classroom teaching.

    Last was Voki. To use this tool, one must create an avatar. In fact, you can create multiples, human or otherwise, and store them in a folder to be used as needed. You get many options for recording voice including typing in your script and choosing from a list of voices (male and female with different accents) to read your text. It was fun to see the avatar's eyes follow as I was working on the details.

    It's amazing how much is out there to assist someone creating a presentation!

  24. Here is my post about Google Docs:
    How and Why might you use Google Forms with your students?
    I do not teach in a classroom so I have more use for forms with peers or my staff.

    My first form is survey I developed for fun. I posted it on my Facebook page and have received over 50 responses. I used Flubaroo to sort the answers and data validation to ensure at least one answer on the mode of travel. This survey can be found at: https://goo.gl/forms/i3Jn5jnTp3VrL69s2

    My second form is a survey developed to be used annually. Optimal meeting times need to be established when newly elected members join this statewide board. Since people are travelling from all corners of the state and have programs running at different times, we need to minimize their time out of their programs. Choosing meeting times that support that allow them to focus on the issues at hand. For this form, I will establish a new spreadsheet each year. Required entries include name and contact info. Data validation ensures they enter at least two responses for the days of the week that are best. By forcing two responses, I hope to arrive at the best possible day for 26 people's schedules to coincide.

    One feature of Google Forms I like is the "explore" option. Google will assist you to make charts of your data o you have quick references or visual representation for learners who prefer that. I'm currently playing with my travel survey to map out the destinations people shared on a map of the world.

    This form can be found at: https://goo.gl/forms/jiKNIPoLR2tICHVA3

  25. I have some experience with surveymonkey and I prefer google forms, its not as complicated to create. Like my classmates have already mentioned, I am famous for not saving my document at different points, coming to the end of battery on my laptop or overloading it because I have too many tabs open at the same time and it stalls. I love automatic save.

  29. I created this particular survey to assess the URI community's understanding of some of the campus security initiatives and emergency preparedness information. In URI 101, many students are provided this information, and this Google form could be used to see if they are retaining the important information given to them. Some of the features I most enjoyed in the google form is the ability to import the video that is shown during the URI 101 session so the attendees can go back and review the information. The option to have may different types of questions is a benefit, as all multiple choice questions tend to get boring!

  31. I really like how user-friendly google forms is, and how it automatically organizes the survey results in a spreadsheet. I have used this application for many different reasons - collecting email addresses, learning fun facts about students, allowing the students to pick the day they want a quiz or a test (or at least they think they are picking haha!!), and so much more. It is nice because there are so many ways to collect feedback (short answer, multiple choice, dropdown menu, etc.)

    I have also used this as a tool to assess myself. Many times after a unit test I ask the students fill out a survey (like this one https://goo.gl/forms/Sctu1IGvwCf66jnl2) and I use it to evaluate my teaching abilities. It helps me improve and stay on my toes!

    1. I liked that tool a lot, Jen, it is a great way to get feedback from the students so you can see where they are at. I think it is a great self-evaluation tool, I bet the kids can give some creative answers to some of the questions!

  32. Here is my 2nd quiz. It can be used as a method to teach people about reciprocal ivf but can also gage what people understand and what questions they have. Plus the 2nd video is pretty cool. https://goo.gl/forms/FR8JjIRazNFhhQwt1
