Assessing the SmartLab
How can we help students develop reflection and self-evaluation skills? Generic debrief questions for discussion or writing can be a place to start.  Digital templates are available.  Presentations, video, photos, teaching a peer, contests, websites …. Lots of ways to help them share their problems and triumphs.

Web Design
Want to learn the basics of web design and development? Whatever your skill level, there is an option for you. In the spirit of our SMARTLab methodology, you will have the opportunity to choose between multiple development resources. There are options as simple as Google Sites, which uses templates to aid the design process, and as advanced as HTML5/CSS coding. There are also a couple options that fall somewhere in between. In some cases you will have the chance to familiarize yourself with our Learning Launchers by using them as your guide, and in other cases you will be provided with 3rd party tutorials and interactive resources to help you along the way. At all times, your facilitator will be available to offer design tips, technical assistance, encouragement, and support.
