Discussion for East Asian Social and Economic Indicators

The increasing globalization concepts were refreshing. I was thinking you would be teaching me some international finance concepts and I’m looking forward to that in your next lesson plan. Learning about the east Asian culture and preparing digital timelines using Glogster was exciting and I am always amazed that 11-17 year olds know such about these technologies.

The need for the assignment was clearly stated and straight to the point. I believe this age group will enjoy creating digital timelines. Having students create a running compilation of current events seems more interesting than just keeping a journal. Students will be able to bring their writing to life. I also like the sense of community you are creating having students visit their classmates blogs.
I am very interested in how you are going to incorporate Edmodo. I have yet to use this social network. Therefore, I'm not sure how to effectively use the networking tool.

The idea of exploring a global interconnectedness is excellent, and I think you chose the tools wisely for your students to deliver their message! I really like the idea of each group having a different country/region to work on, and I think that a timeline is a great tool for them to visualize such complex information more clearly. My concern is about the construction of their knowledge. Where will they find the information necessary to build their timelines? How will that be structured? Further, in order to build these timelines, what kind of scaffolding techniques will be used to support their reasoning? Since the target audience is Grade 7, specific directions are still needed for students to meet expectations and standards.
Where will Edmodo be used? It has only been listed under Prerequisite Knowledge.
