Hi Shauna,

I think you picked a great topic for your mini-course. As a math teacher, I know it is hard to include media in the math classroom. I like how your first lesson is an introduction to the different types of media and I think you picked a really great video. For your other lessons are you planning to give more detailed examples of each? Have you thought about how you plan to assess your students? Good job!

Shauna,

What I like about your mini-course is the subject about using media in a Math classroom. The Needs Assessment clearly identifies the learners and what the learning objectives are for the course. The Curriculum Map is organized well and presented in an understandable format. In Lesson 1, you address the different types of media which I think is helpful and relevant for the Math educator. I enjoyed watching the youtube video about the different types of 21st century technology. It provided appropriate content while listening to the music.

Have you thought about specific educational theories to encourage active and collaborative learning? Adding images that show the different types of graphics, audio, and video would add to the design layout and to the attractiveness of the course. Using larger, bolder lettering for your headings and subheadings would also emphasize the key categories of this course. Is the context for you mini-course an asynchronous learning environment? Providing more references and sources would be very helpful for educators.

Overall, I think you have put together an interesting topic that Math educators will find helpful to use. Lisa

What I liked: You have a lot of great information

What I would add: I would include links so that navigation is easier. It's hard to keep going back to your main page and then go on to the next lesson. Take a look at mine at the top if you are unsure of what I am talking about.
