I had the pleasure of reteaming with Teresa and Jefferey for this project and as I had anticipated, our three very different perspectives brought about some great conversation! For me the revamping of the lesson actually produced some unanticipated but quite wonderful changes to the learning experience I was working with. I had done the lesson multiple times for multiple years, but I hadn’t done it this year because I couldn’t figure out quite how to adapt it. But, when I actually sat down to work on I found that ideas came very naturally and pretty quickly. The lessons I’ve learned between 624 and so far in 625, I was able to adapt a performance based lesson to be meaningful and enriching in a virtual learning environment. Perhaps ironically, the bulk of the changes happened in the assessment phase. Rather than just me assessing the activity as I’ve always done in the past, I incorporated peer feedback and self-analysis. One of the changes that adaptation to a virtual setting uniquely brought about was the recording of each student’s tableau performance. This adaptation affords students the rare opportunity to see their own performance! This is a hugely powerful element that was absent previously and improved the activity very significantly. It’s funny, I’m sort of becoming a 21st Century Learner by osmosis. I hadn’t anticipated that and recall how frustrated I was at the onset of this Brandman program. But, with support from Dr. K and my fellow COP partners, I stuck with it and it seems to sinking in! I really can’t see myself going forward without using technology is a vastly different way than I have before. So many of the unforeseen takeaway and A HA moments that have happened for me will (and have) become an indelible part of my practice.
