Session 3-Baggio, Clark and Dervin As I was reading, I starting to think about Clark's instructional system design and how that applies to my Capstone project. I can now see how I am working through this process. I am currently working on revisions with the end goal of a polished project that I am able to share my results on a major scale. Reading the part about assessments made me realize that I have been so focused on the results and what my next steps are that I didn't even share what I learned with my students. They know what their scores are for the pre and post tests, but they don't know what that means. Going forward, Baggio has reminded me of the importance of visuals. I need to make sure that my students aren't mentally checking out and are truly engaged to learn. I myself could relate to how easy it is to mentally drift in conversation or during a lecture. Images like a pink elephant also remind me that it is okay to be silly at times. My audience is of 8 and 9 year old children and sometimes being silly or projecting a silly image might just be the think that helps them remember the concept I am teaching.
My diving question hasn't changed that much. I have learned from my results that it is not beneficial for all students to use technology to aid in grade level comprehension. My revised question is, How does technology impact struggling readers reading comprehension of grade level text?
