PHASE 1- UNDERSTANDING THE MISSION STORY
PHASE 2- CREATING STUDENT ACTIVITIES
Read the mission synopsis, mission mechanics, standards, and higher order thinking questions page
Read the mission script (includes the story arc as well) by clicking on the mission of interest and downloading the PDF
Read the teachers mission resource packet (this does not pertain to the first mission Sriyana)
Read the crew members responsibilities page if you are not already familiar with them
Pre-Mission Activities Folder: each student, based on the crew member they will play, is assigned a pre-mission activities folder that contains resources and instructions for what you want them to practice before coming to the mission that relates to the in-mission activity you have created for them . Once you have your activities organized you can log into the EIC Dropbox account and upload the items into their respective folders so your students will be able to download them and work with them from home or school as they prepare for their adventure:
Education Immersion Center Dropbox Account
In-Mission Activities Folder: each student, based on the crew member they will play, is assigned an in-mission activities folder that contains resources and instructions for what they are to do during the mission. Once you have your activities organized you can log into the EIC Dropbox account and upload the items into their respective folders so your students will be access them from their work station iPad aboard the ship during the mission. There is a teacher folder and a student folder. The folders in the teacher folder contain extra info the students don't need to see such as solutions to problems and any rubrics you might use to assess the student
Group/Whole Class Actvities Folder: if you want the whole class to do the same exercise or actiivity, this where you will put those documents. For example, you want each student in the class to compose a song using an iPad app, then you could put the instructions for that into this folder by creating a sub folder title "Song Composition". This folder will be accessible by each student from their work station iPad. The Group Folder is in the list of crew members in-missions folders.
Fill in the Mission Activities spreadsheets
Design collaboratively or independently pre and post mission classroom lessons and or projects related to the mission that you will assess
Have your students visit the Education Immersion Center website and review the information on the Students and Crew Members pages
Have your students visit the website to learn about Class Craft and read the Student Tutorial and Summary of Rules PDFs. Inform the Flight Director as to which Class Craft Characters your roster of students have decided to be(healer, mage. or warrior). It is best to balance these character classes across a class so they are not top heavy in one.
Read the Class Craft Teachers Tutorial:
Note: if you decide to run Class Craft in your room, your students will need to create a second character separate from the one used in the EIC missions
Have students begin assembling a costume, the button link takes you to a forum where teachers can share ideas.
As the learning designer, your primary focus here is look for ways to creatively insert the curriculum you cover into the storyline of the missions and decide how you will assess the students pre, during and post mission. You can ask teachers in other areas of expertise to assist you if you and your grade level colleagues want to include subjects outside your normal curriculum. Think of this endeavor much in the same way that the IB program has interdisciplinary collaborative lesson plans, it rest upon collaboration for both teachers and students much in the way that Dr. Gee referred to cross-functional teams.
