Working by yourself or with a partner, students will research and prepare a 10-15 minute presentation that will be presented during the last two weeks of class on selected topics. You may choose a topic upon approval of the instructor. Everyone will be involved in the presentation (remember...you are training to be teachers or administrators!).

What is expected is a 10-15 minute presentation directed at your peers where you would teach your fellow classmates about a particular web-based topic...there is no student lesson involved here. For instance, if your group is looking at Math games and other teaching resources...you might want to show us about on-line and downloaded Math games (check out Math.com, a neat downloadable game called "Timez Attack", The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives, etc)...Google is great...remember our search tips from ED3862...:)...just show us an overview of what is available...do up a presentation that you can share with us we can post on the wiki.

You written report should be in the form of a website (blog, wiki, etc.) based report of what you have found (this does not to be very extensive) and what value it has in the classroom or the workplace. It shall be properly formatted and have a standard reference list.

This report will be due the last day of classes.
