I hadn't had much time this week to go into the reviews of my project draft, but I'm at it now. Never too late, right? What are my reflections on my peers review?
Grade: 14 out of 16........Not bad at all, I expected worse.
1. CURRICULAR INNOVATION AND INTEGRATION (3 out of 4)
Speaking of curricular innovation from this point of view, I think it needs MORE development and description. I agree with my reviewers thoughts of not enough explanation how all the subjects (and objectives) are incorporated within my draft. Somehow, I assumed others were in my head and read my thoughts on how all the subjects fit in, innovate and integrate the project in their own curriculum. If I had to review my own draft now, I'd probably go more in depth. But then, if it were a project in act, it would have to be teachers' collaborative work (give, take, compromise, decide).
2. COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION (4 out of 4)
I must say that I like the way I drafted the collaboration between teachers and between the students. It was just a prezi presentation so I didn't elaborate too much, but if I did, I'd put the frame by frame idea of that collaboration.
I'm a techy person. Sites and apps I don't know much (or at all) about, I play with and learn. But, for what it's worth, I really should explain which goes where, when talking about used WEB 2.0 tools. I've started working on that in my Prezi, even before I got all the reviews. Not that it's non-negotiable. Everything is on the table, after all, it should be PARTNERS' project.
4. RESULTS, IMPACT AND DISTRIBUTION (3 out of 4)
And again, I started with the assumption that people could read my mind. I was a bit vague about the results, impact and distribution of the final products. THAT PART NEEDS SERIOUS WORK!
SO, my dear reviewers, I really thank you for being thorough and pointing out all the parts that need work for my draft to become (possibly) GREAT project.
Project draft, right!
Why is always the hardest to start? Once the first few lines are done, I can't stop, but starting those first few lines always makes me nervous.
It's a draft though, right? Well then, it doesn't have to be perfect, but it has to be close to it. That's it! I'm sticking to it....for now.
Let's start with the title:
Great people were ordinary children once
* best see the prezi in full screen, it's my draft
After listening and reading the 3rd week material...
As much as a person thinks they know (something), there's no perfection that we can truly achieve. WHY? Because we always find a way to push the perfection further and start walking towards it. It's like rainbow's end - It's one more step further, one more move to the left or right, one more...
But, that has never stopped us from walking, moving, going towards our goals.
While all my teachers before or after her said 'it's only important to participate', my old teacher in 4nd grade used to say, 'The second place is the first losing place. You alone decide weather you are first winner or first loser. In both cases you are FIRST'.
