Blended Learning

AP Human Geography Unit

Year: 2018, with annual updates.

Purpose:

I worked with a social sciences teacher who wanted to update her paper-based unit on Folk & Popular Culture with engaging digital activities. I developed online modules that included an interactive mapping activity, retrieval practice, drag and drop matching, and discussion boards. Design Document available upon request.

Technology used:

  • Articulate Rise

  • Google Sites

  • Google Slides

  • Google MyMaps

Response:

Teacher and students were pleased. From the teacher: "Working with Pam on this unit has added spark, energy, and relevance to the curriculum. It allowed for more self-directed learning by the students and allowed me to work with students who needed more individual attention. Ultimately, the Rise unit was clearly organized, comprehensive, student-centered, interactive and clearly addressed the objectives of learning. I found so much benefit from partnering with Pam on this lesson and using this technology."
