I was required to do a service learning project with an organization for a graduate course in school collaborations at UCD in the summer of 2011. For this project, I researched online educational game sites and educational resources. I compiled a list of these websites and submitted them to Girls Inc. of Metro Denver. I also created a poster with links to these sites for use in the Girls Inc. youth center computer lab during free-time. During my research, I also looked at two programs designed to teach young children computer programming skills. I have contacted Girls Inc. in regards to facilitating a computer skills workshop in the youth center. No date has been set for this workshop as of 08/10/11.
My research and rationale was documented and presented in a video essay and posted to YouTube in June, 2011. Links to the websites seen in the video can be found under the "Description" section on YouTube here, or by clicking on the embedded video player. Links to these websites can also be found on my educational resource webpage by following this link: https://sites.google.com/site/eduwebsitelist/
This weblist can also be downloaded as a Microsoft Word document under "Attachments" below.
