This activity was created to encourage a learning environment that promotes respect for copyright and fair use when it comes to signing songs. Singing songs is a popular activity for ASL students so relating copyright to this concept is a great way to teach students about best practices when creating multimedia available to the public.

Modern language teaching pedagogies revolve around the natural process of learning languages. If you look at a child beginning to speak you will see holes in their language production. They will circumnavigate the vocabulary word they do not know until an expert provides them with this word, then they will store it for later use. I tried to follow this pedagogical viewpoint in this activity by requiring students to engage in conversation with native users and when they discover a word they previously did not know they are to research that word and blog about it in order to store it in their memory.

This activity was created for my EdTech 502 Internet for Educators course.
This is an activity that I created to encourage collaboration between students in order to create an effective learning community. It is designed to empower all types of learners to become an expert on a given topic and then teach their peers about said topic. Different types of information (videos, documents, images, and diagrams) are provided to meet the needs and abilities of all learners.
