Vickel Narayan as a technology steward and support in class for students/teacher, every week for 1-2hrs.||the teachers role in the process to be as a facilitator and not an instructor.||'Scaffolding and coaching' - support mechanisms are out in place to help the students through the process - digital resources, readings, teachers|
|ePortfolio - every activity and events within make up a post(s). An assessment rubric will be discussed/created with the students at the start of the course.||teachers to create an environment that nurtures student views and perspectives and allows students to deliver content in multiple formats (multimedia - pictures, videos, audio, storyboards etc).||Authentic assessment - embedded assessment - activities and assessments are not separate and distinct from each other rather they should implement each other|
