Here is an online project that could be done by the Health Science students at Memorial High School paired with a class of Health Science students at Northbrook High School.
Objective: Working with a partner from another school, Health Science students will research the professional responsibilities and educational requirements of a chosen health occupation, using online resources, print resources, personal interviews and clinical experiences, will create a presentation using Google presentation, and each student will then show the presentation to their class.
Implementation: This project could be done during the first 2 weeks of May.
Tools: Google presentation, Skype, email, Internet sites such as Occupational Outlook Handbook and college web sites
Description:Students will be paired with a partner from the other school. They will have an initial Skype session in order to select their topic, and divide responsibilities. They will then work asynchronously, researching independently, communicating through email, constructing their presentation in Google presentation with comments to each other, as well as receiving comments and feedback from the teachers. They may have another Skype session if needed. The completed projects will be presented to each class as a means to review course content as a final review.
