[wptab name=’Intro’]

In order to help you plan for your Course 2 project, here are the details for the final project for this course.

You are required to collaborate on this project to have the experience of a globally collaborative project. Each member of the group should be part of our COETAIL Cohort, but the more diverse you can make your group, the more realistic your global collaboration experience will be. If you want to collaborate with others, but are not sure who would be interested, well that’s part of the learning. How do you connect with others? Where can you go to make that connection or look for a connection?

GET: Make sure you have used GSuite products for collaboration where possible. GDocs, Hangouts, Chat etc. Include reflections on the strengths/weaknesses of this approach and how it impacts collaboration and learning.

[wptab name=’Option 1′]

Option 1: In a small group that contains at least one cohort member outside your school, create a 2-4 hour professional development program based on the themes from this course. Be sure to include how you will differentiate between learners in your audience and how you will utilize & teach GSuite tools. Think of this as a lesson plan for teachers. Your plan should include introductions, activities and reflection. Before you start, reflect on positive PD experiences you have had and what made them exceptional. Include a reflective blog post describing choices you made in developing the PD topics covered, issues of focus, differentiation, describe how it would be shared with staff, etc.

Google Education Trainers must be able to design professional learning, plan for engaging training sessions and facilitate with professionalism.

Option 2: In a small group that contains at least one person outside your school, create a unit planner (using the UbD template or another unit planner that your group agrees on) based on the enduring understandings of this course that helps teach students about 21st Century Literacy Ideas, Questions, and Issues. Include a reflective blog post describing choices you made in developing the unit planner i.e. strategies used, topics covered, unit evaluation etc. In your blog post embed your unit planner from Google Docs.

This option is only relevant if your school does not have an existing Responsible/Acceptable Use Agreement/Policy.

Option 3: In a small group that contains at least one cohort member outside your school, create a Responsible Use Agreement (RUA) or Responsible Use Policy (RUP) for your division level (Elementary, Middle or High School). You may start from scratch or use a framework from some of the resource that are covering in the course or from what your school already has in place. Include a reflective blog post describing choices you made in developing the RUA/RUP i.e. choice of language level, topics covered, issues of focus, describe how it would be shared with students etc.
