- Media (Optional): Digital Nation, Chapters 4 & 5
As a guided inquiry, please explore and start off exploring and creating a unit plan with the Collaborative Curriculum Design Tool (CCDT). The CCDT is available at http://learnweb.harvard.edu/ccdt/. As a way to guide your inquiry in class, try taking a look at the unit plans available at http://www97.intel.com/en/ProjectDesign/UnitPlanIndex/SubjectIndex/ and start “translating” this unit plan into TfU with the CCDT.
Remember that one of your final projects is to create a unit plan with TfU and technology; this does not have to be that project (although if you have an idea of something you want to use, you can feel free to use that).
