GAME Plan Resources and Information

My GAME Plan Goals:

1. Engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources.

2. Promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes.

The resources I will use to achieve my goals include the University of Maine of Farmington website which is dedicated to the implementation technology in the classroom and pushing learning beyond their limits through the enhancement of technology.  This site has several links associated tie each of the strands of the NETS-T standards.

Another site I will use as a resource is cool tools which works with differentiation in the digital world.  Tools that can help students at different levels but focused around the same concepts.

Another resource that will help me along my way to reaching my goals set for this assignment is the Edudemic website.  This site contains countless examples, tools, and more resources to aid in my exploration of this topic.

I found a great site which lists different modes for review and reflection tools that I am looking at implementing in my own GAME Plan.  Several seem like they are reliable and engaging for my class.  I am looking forward to giving a few of them a go and see which ones yield the best results from the students.

  1. Hi Josh!

    Great blog and site! I am impressed. I am also impressed by your resources that you listed. Thank you. Because you seem to very tech-savvy with plenty of resources, have you ever used the app seesaw in your classroom? http://web.seesaw.me/ It is a student-driven digital portfolio. They even list several lessons on the site that are common core aligned. If you have used it, did you like it and what did your students think? I am thinking about incorporating it into my physical education curriculum. Great job!

    1. Hi Raegan,
      Thank you for the compliments on my website. I do consider myself to be pretty text savvy, but I’ve not heard of the website seesaw that you were referring to about students’ digital portfolio. I will be sure to check that out tonight and see if that something I can implement in my own classroom. It sounds like a great site that actually has useful lessons to get it going and get the kids used to using a new interface.
      Thanks for checking out my blog. Have a great day.
      Josh
