Things 1-7 – Capstone Reflection

   A.      How will you use these technology applications to improve learning experiences for your students and/or
          improve your own practice?

   B. What effective teaching and learning strategy(ies), based on the work by Marzano
      (http://gets.gc.k12.va.us/VSTE/2008/ ) will these technology applications address, to make a difference in the
      learning experience for your students?

   C. Check out one of the student activity links provided from the http://21things4students.net/share-lessons.html
      resources repository. Create your own project-based student activity lesson you could implement in your
      classroom that meets a Michigan curriculum standard and Educational Technology standard (NETS-S and/or
      METS). Your lesson should use one or more of the 7 things you have learned about. Follow the directions
      provided to copy the blank template and create a student activity lesson. Make sure you modify the Share
      settings so that anyone with the link can view it. Add your lesson to the repository per the directions on the
      share-lessons page. For your portfolio, include the name of the student activity lesson, include a summary about
      the activity, and a hyperlink to the lesson in Google.
