Design Cycle Introduction

Student Life @DISK

As an MYP interested school we are introducing MYP-style Technology classes. This video was produced to help “flip” our classroom. Students can view this (or the SlideShare version) elsewhere in order to spend more time in class actually creating, collaborating and working in an environment with other learners with access to a knowledgeable”expert”.

  1. Hi Sean, long time no see!
    I started teaching MYP Technology this year. I teach one class from G6 to 8. My students are doing computer technology projects. I was wondering who is teaching MYP Tech at DISK? What type of projects are they doing? Would you mind putting me in touch, I’d like to bounce some ideas and maybe collaborate.

      Mitch! You gotta be kidding, me too. I have been looking for a flattening partner for my next unit. Jamie Richards (ASIJ) seems interested. 3-way..? I’m planning to teach online searching skills as a lead in to researching D-citizenship/safety and then have kids collaboratively produce peer level websites sharing what they’ve learned with Weebly.

      Back to you
