A new school year has begun and it’s time to set up a computer center in your classroom. You will need to have expectations for what students should do at the computer center, some websites ready for the kids and some way of organizing websites so the students know where to go. Here are a few posts I have written on my blog which might help you get started:

Learning Activity with Assessment Worksheet
- TLW be able to assess prior knowledge using the course and tools within Moodle
- TLW be able to develop active learning activities based on Bloom's Taxonomy using Padlet
Example: 3-2-1 Atoms and Molecules (Comprehension)
The web 2.0 tool Padlet has been set up for groups in Moodle. The learners will only see the Padlet that represents the cohort group they are in. The purpose of this is to make the posts easier to read and pull ideas from. The Bloom’s Taxonomy levels pdf is available to the learners in the Moodle course.
Assessment Tool and Procedure
(active learning example with integrated content – how it will be used in your course)
text VERY clearly and effectively communicates and explains the activity
text SOMEWHAT clearly and effectively communicates and explains the activity
text DOES NOT clearly and effectively communicate and explain the activity
(active learning example with integrated content; followed by level of Bloom’s taxonomy in parenthesis behind activity title)
3-2-1 Atoms and Molecules (Comprehension)
Activity was completed as instructed
Activity was partially completed as instructed
Activity was not completed as instructed
Completely unique and one of a kind with content included
(created an active learning activity not listed in the course)
Somewhat unique with content included
(used an active learning activity in the course)
Not unique no content included or did not complete
(used an active learning activity in the course, but did not include how it could be used in their content area)
Highest Quality – Could be used as a class example
Good Quality – Could use revisions and more creativity
Inadequate – Needs to be revisited and redone to meet the requirements for the assignment

As many know I am a very big proponent for Active Learning in the classroom as I believe it builds life long learners and students who truly feel a sense of community in their classroom.
I am working on a Lunch and Learn Online series at LSU in which one of the courses is Active Learning Activities in the Classroom. I am very excited about this new endeavor and how it will impact instruction in the Higher Education setting.
As a database entry or discussion it reads like this:
