The reflection at the end gives me insight into what students took away from the project and also lets them contemplate what they learned and how it has changed their understanding. Content and Pedagogy Different learning styles will be addressed in this lesson through the use of audio, visual, scaffolding, and various discussions and check-ins. The Social Cognitive Theory of modeling will help students who don’t understand the concept. The example documents and process cards will give concrete information of what the process looks like.

The technology allows someone who feels they aren’t very creative or technology savvy the chance to create a very polished product. The technology also makes the assignment feel less like another class assignment and instead like a more personal, fun project. Technology and Pedagogy The technology fits my pedagogy by allowing students to work on the project anywhere, thus expanding the classroom. Twiddla, YouTube, iMovie, StoryboardThat.com, Present.Me and PowerPoint allow students to continually edit and discuss their work. They can have numerous people view, edit and help them with their presentation outside of the classroom. This
