Instructional strategies are techniques teachers use to help students become independent, strategic learners. These strategies become learning strategies when students independently select the appropriate ones and use them effectively to accomplish tasks or meet goals. – Alberta Learning, Alberta Canada.
For my final project, the intent is to have it hosted on the school’s website. Through this method it will encourage parents to visit the website on a regular basis, so that they are aware of the most updated information through various bulletins and keep abreast of what is happening based on the events calendar. However, since I am not currently employed within the teaching sector, I created my own website using a free app site, to host my activity. Once you get to the website, you will be able to navigate it easily to learn about my “Integrated Activity.” It is user friendly and the layout is easy to follow.
The Integrated Activity, provides students with instructional strategies regarding “Simple Machines.” The lesson targets the fourth grade, but it can be altered for students at the lower or upper grade of an elementary school. Through various digital tools, this lesson can be executed to meet desired objectives. My digital tools focus on “Flipped classroom, YouTube and Digital Library.” Using these tools, I can to maximize on my instructional strategies, as they will:
• motivate students and help them focus attention.
• organize information for understanding and remembering.
• monitor and assess learning.
As it relates to accessibility, the pros and cons must be taken into consideration when developing a lesson that will be web based. Clear instructions must also be given so that students and/or parents do not become frustrated throughout the navigation process. Below is the link that takes you to my hosting website:
