Methodology

The conducting of the Information Learning Activity (ILA) was heavily driven by the Year 4 classroom teacher, who designed a term long unit of work interconnecting the learning areas of English, Geography and Technology. Due to scheduling, I was unable to co-teach any of the aspects, however the classroom teacher was interested in modifying the unit in the future so that I could participate. Throughout the duration of the ILA, students had access to class laptops, non-fiction texts, and verbal feedback during individual conferencing with their teacher.

The following Prezi shares the Methodology process, as I describe the steps taken, the people involved and their roles, and the tools used to collect the relevant data.
