Dear LOR user,
Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).
Fun Human Body System Websites:
Human Body Ipad Apps: We will use these at school and students can use them at home:
Teacher shares with students that they will now take a quiz to show what they have learned this week about the Skeletal System with a wizer.me quiz . Students will be instructed how to access the site and quiz.
Students turn in the quiz on wizer.me when they are finished.
Assessment: Formative /Summative
The quiz is a formative assessment of one of the nine body systems in the unit, the skeletal system. The quiz grade is used by the teacher along with student human body packet pages, and classroom observations during other work on the system’s concepts to assess student knowledge of the skeletal system.
Follow-Up Lesson(s): Individual remediation by the teacher is taught and assigned if students don’t have all the concepts needed for the quiz.. The whole class will move on to the next system. The summative assessment will be the Human Body Systems Assessment at the end of the unit.
What was your experience, both successes and challenges, using this lesson object with your students?
The students really liked doing the quiz online and it gave me a clear idea of who needed more instruction on this individual body system as we moved on whole group to the next body system. With the success of this first quiz, my science counterpart on the other team and I converted all our our quizzes to the wizer.me format for each of the nine body systems. We also converted the review and final assessment to a digital format. We would like to update and convert the human body systems packet to a digital format as well.
I found the use of the online quiz component very engaging for students and it still offered the insight into what was needed by students individually and gave them and me immediate feedback. A great advantage that I didn’t foresee was that students could go back into their wizer.me quiz for practice once I recorded their grade and unlocked the quiz and work on the items they had missed. With a paper copy, once the quiz was home, they really didn’t use it as a learning tool again.
