PIDP3250 Past Digital Projects
Links to more than 5 past students digital projects along with your thinking / reaction to these strategies. These are sporadic till the end of week 7
Here is a video animation about “One-Minute Papers”. This engaging and informative animation was created by my PIDP classmate Cynthia Grant.
Basically at the end of a class, students are asked to respond to two simple questions:
Key points at the One-Minute Papers
The Flipped Classroom (Videoscribe)
Here is a whiteboard video animation about “The Flipped Classroom”. This video was created by my PIDP classmate Joyce Shepherd.
In traditional classroom, the teacher's role is the "Sage on the Stage" with students primiarly listening to the teacher lecturing. In the flipped classroom, the teacher's role is the "Guide on the Side" where the students are able to watch recorded lectures at home and complete their assignments/labs and tests in class.
Strengths of Flipped Classroom:
Challenges of Flipped Classroom:
Here is a whiteboard video animation about “The Flipped Classroom”. This video was created by my PIDP classmate Joel Feenstra.
Kahoot! Is a fun learning game made from a series of multiple choice questions. Kahoots are best played in a group setting, such as a classroom. Players answer on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson.
It provides a quick method of feedback to both the learners and the educators
It can be played as an academic game to determine student learning and engage the students in their learning. After watching this video, you will be able to use Kahoot! to informally assess student progress in a given content area, all while increasing student engagement, assessing their sense of community and commitment to learning, and of course providing that element of fun.

Here is a video animation about “Poster Sessions”. This video was created by my PIDP classmate Rosemarie Payne.
Poster sessions is a strategy where students can create a poster that will depict their learning about today's topic. Students complete their research and can creatively design a poster. It will also include a 1-page summary of their analysis.
I like the idea of the 1 page analysis. This allows the students to not only learn, but also have fun at the same time.
Here is a video about “Case Study”. This video was created by my PIDP classmate Chris Marrie.
Case Study is an active learning strategy in which students analyze real life scenario using problem-solving and decision making skills. Those scenario should be relevant to the profesional life of the student.
A good case study should include:
- telling a story
- no clear answer
- promotes empathy
- critical thinking skills
- direct and guide
- examine actions up to the decision point
- identify key events
- ensure collaboration and participation
- synthesize issues
- facilitate reflection time
For me, case study is an effective way for students to apply what they have learned to a real-life situation. It is very practical from the students' perspective as they can derive value from studying the case study.
Here is a video about “Field Trip”. This video was created by my PIDP classmate Tom Teer.
In a field trip, students can experience and see in a live setting what they cannot do or see in the classroom.
- Promotes change of pace from the ordinary classroom
- Students can ask experts more technical questions
- Student can see things that cannot be replicated in a classroom
- Professional work environment in a real world situation
- Additional monetary costs to the students
- Transportation issues
- Extra planning
