Instructor comments on your objectives and ICM -- Jianwei Zhang (talk) 16:02, 15 April 2013 (EDT)

The course- and unit-level objectives have been identified and defined appropriately. Two minor improvements:

Instructors will be able to demonstrate and understanding of social networking pages (Facebook/Twitter)


Find a verb that indicate "demonstrate and understanding", such as by explaining how social networking works???


Instructors will be able to develop in- class activities which can be completed using the social networking pages
Instructors will be able to develop out of class activities which can be completed using the social networking pages
Instructors will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how the social networking pages can cause collaborative learning inside and outside the classroom.

Move the last objective before 2 and 3, so the participant will understand the benefits before working on the activities.

You're yet to identify prerequisites that will enable/support these objectives.

I am sure you can find a lot of resources online about this topic. You will need to make a critical analysis to focus on solid and well-informed references as the content source of this mini-course.

Jeanne's Developmental Tryout of Brittany's Mini Course: review of Design Portfolio Page -- Jeanne M. Weber (talk) 10:16, 1 May 2013 (EDT)

Overview

Brittany, after reading over the agenda and evaluation criteria provided, here are my comments specifically regarding the Design Portfolio page. This is a great topic – certainly relevant and teachers who are trying to connect with students who are well-versed in the social-networking world will probably engage in lessons that incorporate the use of social-media style collaboration.

Evaluation: Design Portfolio Brittany

Introduction/Rationale/Needs Assessment

Well thought-out, clear statements. Well defined and relevant rationale. I agree with Professor – Jianwei's remarks and add a few of my own:

Needs Assessment

  • Detailed, clear and explicit. Breaking it out in different sections makes it easier to follow. Well done.
  • A few minor edits might be in order:
  • I don't understand this statement, could you clarify or reword maybe? nature of what will be learned: They will learn different activities/strategies that all the social media page to be used in all of those ways
  • (About The Learners) instead of “make a page” how about “create a user profile”?
  • (Instructional Context/Physical), last sentence: “students are able to assess them.” I think you meant access? Not assess?

Performance Objectives

  • Well-defined goals, appropriate prerequisites
  • One concern in this section: first bullet point: “ will be able to demonstrate and understanding of social networking pages” - should “and” be “an”?

Task Analysis

(Task Analysis, (enabling, supporting prereqs) Sequencing – structure, Instructional Curriculum Map)

Concerns:

  • I was a bit confused. I don't see a Task Analysis section, however I do see the prerequisites under performance objectives heading. Should they be under a Task Analysis heading?
  • Also, I see a unit-by unit listing of activities (Instructional map) but I understood that the Task Analysis section was to include a unit-by unit breakdown of the specific objectives for each unit. You may want to check on that.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
