Abstract

The use of technology in K-12 lessons has become a trend nowadays. In the Nearpod lesson, students learned foundational knowledge about epidemic diseases, which is of concern and heatedly-discussed during the recent period. Students were provided with several online resources and encouraged to explore the topic with their group members. After this lesson, students were expected to understand different categories of epidemic diseases and their causes and effects as well as the self-protecting measures. The main role of the teacher in the lesson was to guide and give instructions and to make sure that all the students were on the right track. This was qualitative research proposing a lesson plan to examine the effects of technology and cognitive tasks in the lesson. Students were provided with certain materials and activities which would help them to learn about the cause and effect of epidemic diseases. After that their learning outcomes are shared in the Collaborate Board for the whole class to review and comment on. During the whole class, both formative and summative assessments are used to assess students’ learning and achievements, which would provide further inspiration for the education field.
