Using an action research framework, students will propose and follow through with projects in their communities or schools incorporating their newly-developed toolbox. They will report and reflect on the experience of the project and propose future steps.

Evaluation

Technology tool mastery: we will discuss tools and skills related to online technologies which would make sense for you for your personal and educational development to learn and master. You will demonstrate mastery by creating an agreed-upon product using each tool. These demonstrations will take place during the first Thursday of the class. Technology tool presentation: for one tool or skill, you will create a presentation explaining the features, benefits, and drawbacks of a selected tech tool. You may complete this assignment groups of 2s or 3s. These presentations will happen the second week of class. Project proposal: You will write a formal proposal for your final project, based on discussions among you, me, and your community-based organization. This proposal will constitute a contract between you, your organization, and me. The proposal is due the second Monday of class. Final Project Report: You will complete your final project and report out about it in some agreed-upon way. This could take the shape of a website, video, blog, picture essay, or combination of many different media. Your final project is due July 25, although is highly recommended to submit the project early. Final reflection: following the completion of your final project, you will submit a final written reflection.
