Integrating Technology in the Foreign Language
|Jean LeLoup & Bob Ponterio
Web project #2
Create a web site project that has at least 4 pages. The site will be
designed to teach something language &/or culture related. Note that this does NOT mean simply memorizing grammar rules or cultural facts.
The pedagogical objectives (SWBAT) of the project must be explicitly stated,
culture and/or language components (better if both are present & related), and be supported by the project's
content. What specific skill will the student be capable of performing after completing the assignment? IOW We are looking for specific learning outcomes, not vague and general goals. Review the lesson on designing goals & objectives.
- The entry page to your project 2 site will be named index.html. It will reside in its own folder and link to & from your first table of contents page.
- All file names (web pages, images, sounds) will be short, correctly formed, correctly located, containing no spaces or other disreputable characters ;-)
There must be multiple ways of moving through the pages in your site.
The project must include at least one edited image (clip art or photo & tell me what you did).
The project must include at least one edited
sound (or video) file (& tell me what you did).
- The project must include at least two different types of Form Field for meaningful interaction advancing the project goals (one must be a dropdown box). Note that if the lesson is pedagogically sound, you will probably need more than one form field of each type for meaningful interaction.
The project should make appropriate pedagogical use of the target language. (IOW appropriate language for the student level.)
The project should make appropriate use of stylistic elements: Fonts (e.g. serif/sans serif),
Size, Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, Proximity. Format should include at least one table, and its size must be set as a percentage, not as an absolute number of pixels. (Review the lesson on Style.)
You will give a very brief in-class presentation of your
project. Projects will be placed online and you will turn in the
URL. You will need to
turn in a page (hard copy) with the title of the project, a description
of what you are trying to teach in the project, what your specific
objective are (SWBAT), and a flowchart that demonstrates
the various ways of moving through the pages in the site. Label the
with the names of the web pages in your site. Also note in your flowchart the locations of required elements (e.g. edited sound, table, etc).
Please be sure to
include your name, the course number, and the correct URL address.
