Answer in a complete paragraph response: How has the Create module prepared you to meet each standard listed above? Link to or provide specific examples from your work in Create. What strategies will you take away from the Create module and apply to your teaching? What lessons were most beneficial for you?
I was familiar with copyright and Fair Use, but some of the tasks available in the Create module taught me how to identify restrictions for any content I locate. I will definitely be using Google Sites and and Flippity. I enjoy creating materials for students, but I want them to be worth the time invested. No busy work. The lesson regarding Building Portable Lesson Objects was probably the most beneficial to me. I also like the idea of aggregating elements of teaching.
