Providing a program focus on design and technology for ce

  1. 1. Providing a program focus onDesign and TechnologyImplications for the students, the instructorsand the community
  2. 2. Program Objective Objective: Increase the understanding of technology among older adults using students to design and deliver learning materials.
  3. 3. Why Continuing Education? We are specialists in education We are trained in teaching the older learner Our potential products are superior to most of the options available for older adult learning, as we cater to the needs of the older adult We have turned the tide as a department, and are looking for innovation in our program which encourages brain healthy behavior.
  4. 4. Program design We would offer training through CE Students work in teams of 4 – 6 people, under close supervision of CE instructor, determine topic, learning objectives and method of delivery, finally developing learning materials for older adults which are relevant, engaging and educational. Topics would be those which help older adults to use technology to communicate with family and in the community.
  5. 5. Qualities of instruction Designed for adult learners Delivered in chunks to conserve working memory Information taught as needed (i.e. not all things at once) Slow, clear instruction with practice Project based learning most effective Team approach insures maximum participation
  6. 6. Rationale Alone, we are limited by time and resources. With a team, we can use the strengths of the team. This would allow students to specialize in a particular aspect of instructional design, making design more efficient and effective. As students become more proficient, they can help with additional instructional design
  7. 7. Potential rewards Students develop skills which may be useful in gaining occupation, paid or unpaid Materials created can be taught within the community, or using online methods Students can teach materials in small groups such as libraries and community centers Develop a pool of students who are willing to help at technology events and other tutoring experiences.
  8. 8. Part of a bigger picture This training is part of The Ambassador Corp Program, a project which is a collaboration among members of the Technology Coalition Steering Committee, developed to improve computer literacy within the older adult community. Continuing Education is part of this committee, as is AIS, San Diego Futures Foundation, Aldea@Home, and other companies focused on the older adult.
  9. 9. Program design Offer class as a distance learning class Allow for enrollment anytime Require a 50 hour commitment Include face to face, virtual and independent learning Project based (team will develop materials) Teams can be set up by students, or by instructor Include students from around county
  10. 10. For more information A one page schematic of Ambassador program: http://tinyurl.com/6rlg5fw An introduction to the Ambassador Corps: http://tinyurl.com/6m2gr98
