Answer in a complete paragraph response: How has the Create module prepared you to meet each standard listed above? Link to or provide specific examples from your work in Create. What strategies will you take away from the Create module and apply to your teaching? What lessons were most beneficial for you?
The Create module prepared me to meet the above standards by providing me with information articles, videos and lessons, and providing me with the opportunity to practice creating my own content with various tools. I researched tools that helped support student learning and engagement (Standard B). I also planned and designed lessons that encouraged active learning (Standard C). I also learned more about Creative Commons license and Fair Use (Standard E). Finally, I learned about aggregating content to help students transfer knowledge effectively (Standard K). The most beneficial lessons for me included researching and exploring various web tools that I can use in the classroom. Furthermore, I learned how to search for Creative Commons content and give credit to my sources.
