Review & Relate
Review and Relate Task
This task will have two components: REVIEW and RELATE. In the REVIEW section, students will focus on deepening their content knowledge and will complete a literature review of learning activities (500 words) and projects (500 words) identified as relevant to Digital Technologies in the junior secondary classroom, including how these assess student learning. Essentially, you will identify at least 10 activity based resources and at least 10 project based learning activities, and annotate these to explain their relevance to the curriculum (consider the rational and aims, not just content descriptors), and how the activities could assess student learning. Provide an APA style reference to the activities and projects (see the research topic page for style guides).
In the RELATE section, students will compare the application of sequences of learning activities to the integration of activities to support projects (500 words) and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches to developing student knowledge and skills (including higher order thinking skills of design, computational, and systems thinking) (500 words), and two sets of principles to support these approaches. (250 words each). Essentially, how do sequences of learning activities compare to project based learning, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each in developing lower order skills and higher order thinking, and summarise each approaches strengths in a statement of principles.
