Motivating Children Online Session: http://parents.ccsdtitle1.org/motivating-children/
2.0.1, 2.0.5, 2.0.6, 2.0.7, 2.1.4, 2.2.1, 2.2.2, 2.2.3, 2.3.1, 2.3.2, 2.4.2, 2.4.5, 5.1.1, 5.3.1: As demonstrated in the artifact, the lesson uses appropriate design principles, techniques, and technologies for a distance education format (online course with audio, video, print components). The process of re-designing the lesson required selection and use of appropriate media, design principles, instructional techniques, and demonstration of an understanding of media and visual literacy skills. The lesson contains formative and summative assessments as well as links for learners to assess the quality and effectiveness of instruction using a SurveyMonkey Survey. Based on assessments of the original lesson and acquired competencies, I developed multimedia components for the lesson in a distance-learning format. Additionally I created new supplementary materials and games in print and multimedia formats that were not a part of the original lesson.
Context:For EDET 709 in the Spring of 2012, I redesigned the distance education lesson on motivating children I originally developed as a project for EDET 703 earlier that semester using different technological tools and fewer multimedia components. The redesign project followed the ADDIE model of instructional design and focused on the design and development phases in order to develop and implement the redesigned lesson/site.
Conditions:This was an individual project that required application of research-based strategies and techniques for evaluation of the original project and for design changes to improve the quality of the product. Use of the content required getting permission from the content creator and appropriate references and acknowledgements are given.
Scope:The product is available to parents in Colleton County via the artifact link. This lesson is the structural basis for future lessons.
Role:I am the sole designer of the original and redesigned websites, citations/attributions for content and media are included on the project pages.
Accessible Online Newsletter: http://735final.shelbyesimmons.me/
2.1.4, 2.4.2, 2.4.5: The artifact demonstrates district policies for professional development, webpages, and communication and is designed to be an enhanced newsletter – a common format for print or web based professional development content/support. The site features appropriately linked pages.
Context:The Accessible Online Newsletter is the final exam for EDET 735 (Spring 2013). This artifact demonstrates a web version of a text-based form of professional development for educators within our school district – a newsletter. The theme supports my design project for the class and is a resource for that project showing how text based instruction can support multimedia instruction and accessibility issues as the Newsletter is designed adhere to accessibility guidelines. The content establishes some guidelines and policies for working with children who are diagnosed with autism and their parents by applying UDL and using or providing assistive technologies.
Conditions:The site design followed the ADDIE instructional design process and is in the implementation/evaluation phase(s). The format of an accessible online newsletter was a requirement of the project. The site was built with Weebly and I edited the CSS and HTML templates to improve accessibility.
Scope:This Newsletter has been submitted for the course, however it is a component of my project, and as such will become a part of the online offerings of Professional Development and Parental Involvement in my school district.
Role:I designed the Newsletter/artifact as a solo project using the ADDIE design model, selecting images and linking resources in harmony with AECT Standard 2 and school district policy.
