This is how we do it!

Pane 4: Links (reverse, reverse!)
This demonstration starts with me using pane 4 by posting a link. As students enter, I would have them click on the link and practice their vocabulary since the link takes them to a Quizlet set of their vocabulary. This gives independent practice before we get started while utilizing pane 4 by sharing the link!
Pane 3: Images
Using panes 3 and 4 together is what I enjoy the most! I love to upload images and then share them to the Whiteboard so they are large. In this particular case, I copied 2 images: a house with many rooms and a woman. As I moved her from room to room, the students should tell me where she is in the house, using the vocabulary that they just practiced. Then we move the little lady and do it all over again! Check out the video to see exactly how it's done:) This how we do it!
Reflection: JigsawU 103
These panes are probably the least painful for me because I can come up with some creative ways to use them:) As when we had to practice panes 1 & 2 in the previous assignment, it helps me focus on the different ways to utilize the capabilities of these two panes alone. I have enjoyed learning to upload the images to pane 3 and transfer them to the whiteboard, but there are actually a variety of ways to employ these two panes! I can teach a cultural lesson and use the map to indicate where in the world that particular place is located, the distance between us and that place, etc. I often use the whiteboard in pane 4 to have students write on it to answer conjugation questions, fill in blanks, etc. For me, these two panes elicit the most engagement. When using panes 1 and 2, it's not as easy to ensure that all students are engaged in the lesson. Looking at it from a different point of view, panes 1 and 2 can be used for input and panes 3 and 4 can be used for student production. As I focus on the different parts of Jigsaw individually rather than the product as a whole, I am coming up with more ideas as to how to take advantage of the different capabilities of the program (yes, even after so much time, I am still "getting used to it"!) and I will hopefully learn more strategies to use as we continue this process!
