This lesson is a wonderful example of blending content and technology. The mix of both research and personal opinion into a multimedia project gives the students both motive and purpose as they are engaged in looking into themselves and expressing their personal feelings.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson listed adequate technology hardware requirements, iMacs or Macbooks, as well as software that would facilitate the production of a final project, this is essential because it helps in suggesting what technology is needed and what an instructor should expect to use.

Time spent reviewing site: 10 minutes

I believe that an understanding of different cultures is an essential quality of the xxi century student and professional. We live in an increasing globalized world; these types of activities are definitely relevant in today’s education. I think you could address more Nets-s as instructional objectives with this lesson, especially in research and information fluency, and communication and collaboration. Since you’re using an LMS you can add many UDL principles to your lesson plan taking advantage of the tools within the platform. I like that you considered opening a discussion forum in the LMS as an instructional strategy where they can summarize and compare their ideas.
