Even though I missed a whole day of PD on Wednesday, I realised I didn't miss much because I got to share some of my lesson ideas with John on Thursday.
He gave great comments to help me to sharpen the lesson ideas and provided more Web2.0 applications for me to explore.
What I took away from whatever time I had at the PD sessions was that our ICT-enabled lessons must help students reach the key understanding(s). THAT must form the basis of our lesson design even before we look at the effective use of ICT or creative use of Web2.0 applications.
So my question is: If we know ALL our lessons must help students reach the key understandings, how have we been monitoring this or what do we intend to do to monitor this?
