The second part of Professional Design Development looked at best practices in Technology training which included:
1. Session Framework:
Making sure in the beginning you outline clear objectives and how you will achieve them.
Middle: referring back to questions asked or looked at in the beginning section
and the End, where you go over how the areas you aimed to cover were in fact covered.
2. Sequence of information
- Demonstrate product’s real world application
- show model student work or final product
- orient to the user interface – introduce what the pallettes and toolbars look like
- explore specific functionalities
Week 2 Assignment:
This week we downloaded the Acrobat template to fill in for the pre-planning phase of our major assignment task. This outlined who the PD plan would be developed for, the learning objectives and how we would include best practice approaches for adult learners and technology training.
My PD plan is for a session I will be giving (hopefully) at the DATTA Vic conference in May. I am looking at developing a session to help design and technology teachers develop learning tools to assist them to flip their classrooms. I will be using Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements, as these are readily available as a part of Department of Ed’s software package for government schools.
Hoping it will all fall into place.
