Description:

This is a Unit that I currently teach which is highly adaptable to using some of the Web 2.0 tools and resources. I give students time in class with laptops and usually a web page with a list of science resources that I have vetted. Invariably some students struggle to find the necessary details about the disorder such as the chromosome afflicted, the person credited with discovering the disorder and the current research on the topic. Meanwhile other students breeze through the task and often are finding valuable resources that could help other students. By implementing a wiki to provide as a collaborative sharing space I think that all will benefit. It will also provide me with a easy way to monitor and track student progress through the journey. This is the main focus of this project but as this unfolded I also was able to incorporate some other applications such blogging the "Mendel Thank You Letter" assignment and encouraging kids to use Prezi or a screentoaster.com to assemble a more creative end product.
