I have selected a year three cohort as this is the actor I will be teaching in my up coming prac.
Student Learning Outcomes
Here are the Content descriptors that will form the basis of my student learning out comes. They will probably be refined as I make progress through developing the unit.
- Students should be able to interpret and compare student generated data displays (ACMSP070)
- Students should be able to collect data, organise into categories and create displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs, with and without the use of digital technologies (ACMSP069)
- Students should be able to create and refine questions and use these questions to plan an investigation into preferences of year three students (ACMSP068)
- Students should recognise the similarities and differences between places in terms of their type of settlement, demographic characteristics and the lives of the people who live there (ACHGK019)
As for the assessment students will be required to use an ICT presentation medium of their choice (to be negotiated and agreed upon with teacher) to present their findings outlining similarities and differences from an online survey conducted with a Chinese buddy class. They must first develop a series of questions to ask the buddy class then graph the results, present their findings and edit the data collection of a partner.
Students are provided choice to allow them to have treating control of their learning and to maintain interest. Having students first create the data results without technology provides the support for them to transfer this data using ICT.
