Write a lesson plan for a class in an online course you'd like to teach. Design a collaborative learning activity to go with this lesson that is appropriate for your learners Collaborative work helps to build a learning community among distance learners and promotes deeper learning by making it more experiential.
You may use Google Slides (formerly known as Presentation), since that is a very easy collaborative technology to use, or Learni.st if you would like to explore something new. (Prezi is another possibility.) Assign students a topic to research and have them build a presentation to share with the class.
This assignment is to help you understand the challenges created by species loss. In groups of 4, you will each be assigned an endangered species. Create a Google Presentation in which each student is responsible for a slide. Your presentation should include:
-The IUCN status of the animal or plant.
-Habitat and role of the animal in the ecology (predator, prey).
-Threats to survival.
-Conservation efforts that are being done or could be done.
You will need to work as a team and coordinate your efforts so that work is divided equally. Share your presentation with the class by X/X/XX. If you need help, email the instructor at least 24 hours in advance of the due date.
