Materials Generators Hand-outs

  1. 1. Materials Generators Group 3 Bagui, Lalaine Gavino, Mickey Cruz, Aljohn Tayao, Ada
  2. 2. Teaching Materials - instructional materials used in teaching - tools used by teachers to > help learners improve reading and other skills > illustrate or reinforce a skill, fact, or idea, and > relieve anxiety, fears, or boredom Materials Generators - A type of software support tool. - Materials Generators help teachers produce instructional materials.
  3. 3. Kinds of Materials Generators A. Lesson Plan B. Calendar C. Rubrics D. Quizzes E. Visual Aids F. Activities/Worksheets G. Others
  4. 4. Lesson Plan - Lesson plan is an outline or a framework that serves as a guide for educators as they teach. - Lesson plan generators refers to software programs that provides tools in creating lesson plans. Disadvantages/ Advantages: Limitations: > Saves time > Limites creativity of the > Easier teacher > Productive > Too much dependency > Resource for new ideas > Different teaching styles > Computer illiteracy > Internet connections
  5. 5. Examples: > > > > >
  6. 6. Calendars - used to schedule lessons, class activities, quizzes, extra-curricular activities and the like. - helps the teacher keep the class schedule organized. - used to avoid conflicts in scheduled activites and events. Advantages: > Personalized > Long term plans can be made (for the whole Quarter or School Year) > Conflicting plans can be easily identified
  7. 7. Disadvantages/Limitations: > Needs a printer, or > Needs to be viewed through a computer > Needs to be reprinted if ever major changes are made Examples: > > > >
  8. 8. Rubrics - A rubric is an explicit set of criteria used for assessing a particular type of work or performance. - A rubric is a scoring guide that seeks to evaluate a student's performance based on the sum of a full range of criteria rather than a single numerical score. - It usually also includes levels of potential achievement for each criterion, and sometimes also includes work or performance samples that typify each of those levels. 
  9. 9. Rubrics - Levels of achievement are often given numerical scores. - A summary score for the work being assessed may be produced by adding the scores for each criterion. - The rubric may also include space for the judge to reasons for each describe the judgment or to make suggestions for the author. - Rubrics can be created for any content area including math, science, history, writing, foreign languages, drama, art, music, and even cooking! Once developed, they can be modified easily for various grade levels. 
  10. 10. Rubric Tools - A rubric generator is an online or software-based tool to quickly create rubrics. - In some cases, the outline, structure, or template is provided and the user simply enters the criteria. - In other cases, the rubric is automatically created and the user just makes modifications. - First generation tools produce a rubric that one person can use to judge one assignment, project, or set of performances at a time.
  11. 11. Rubric Tools - Second generation tools enable an author, or set of authors, to create or collect a bank of criteria, choose a subset of those criteria to judge each project, and then to analyze data gathered cumulatively, criterion by criterion, across projects. - It’s easier to use rubrics to assess progress over many projects or performances, even though each one requires a different mix of criteria.
  12. 12. Advantages: > Rubrics improve student performance by clearly showing the student how their work will be evaluated and what is expected. > Rubrics help students become better judges of the quality of their own work. > Rubrics allow assessment to be more objective and consistent. > Rubrics force the teacher to clarify his/her criteria in specific terms. > Rubrics reduce the amount of time teachers spend evaluating student work.  
  13. 13. Advantages: > Rubrics promote student awareness about the criteria to use in assessing peer performance. > Rubrics provide useful feedback to the teacher regarding the effectiveness of the instruction. > Rubrics provide students with more informative feedback about their strengths and areas in need of improvement. > Rubrics accommodate heterogeneous classes by offering a range of quality levels. > Rubrics are easy to use and easy to explain.
  14. 14. Disadvantages/Limitations: > Development of rubrics can be complex and time-consuming > Using the correct language to express performance expectation can be difficult > Defining the correct set of criteria to define performance can be complex > Rubrics might need to be continuously revised before it can actually be usable in an easy fashion
  15. 15. Disadvantages/Limitations: > Rubrics can also restrict the students mind power in that they will feel that they need to complete the assignment strictly to the rubric instead of taking the initiative to explore their learning. > If the criteria that is in the rubric is too complex, students may feel overwhelmed with the assignment, and little success may be imminent. > For the teacher creating the rubric, they may find the task of developing, testing, evaluating, and updating time consuming.

  17. 17. Quiz - An examination consisting of a few short questions - It is used to examine someone's knowledge of something - An informal test or examination of a student or class Quiz Tools - Programs or software which assists teachers and professors in creating different types of quizzes and tests for their students - These can be either pre-made or guides to help in the creation of new tests
  18. 18. Quiz Tools - Encompass the different quiz types > Multiple Choice > Fill in the blank > Matching type > Short answers > True or False - different versions entirely Automatically generates randomized along with master answer sheets - Can be either online or saved and printed
  19. 19. Advantages: > Saves valuable time > Relieves the teacher of the hassle of formatting using a normal word processor > Tests can be saved and modified for future use > Can be used to compile previous quizzes and format it into a long exam > Can be scored instantly > Answer sheets can be made separately at the same time
  20. 20. Advantages: > Some exams or tests can even be taken online > It is easier to include different symbols or equations and graphs > One question can be generated with hundreds of variations, all of which test the same concept > Easily accessible and easy to understand > Teachers can get ideas and suggestions from pre-existing online quizzes
  21. 21. Disadvantages/Limitations: > Some of these programs/websites require you to create an account > Some of these programs must be downloaded > Some require the teacher to input all the data/questions

  23. 23. Visual Aids - an object or representation that may be used to clarify or enhance understanding of a concept or process.  - one way to increase the effectiveness of a presentation. - any material related to your speech an audience can see. - types: > Charts/Graphs > Pictures > Computer Projections (e.g., PowerPoint™) > Flashcards 
  24. 24. Advantages: - They add interest - They improve learner’s understanding - They improve learner’s retention - They allow for different learning styles - Visuals appeal to different parts of the brain than words.  Disadvantages/Limitations: - Visual aids take time to plan, design and prepare. - If displayed too long, it will become a distraction.

  30. 30. Other Kinds of Materials Generators Substitute Planner - Teachers aren't machines. > Sometimes we even have to take a day off for personal reasons or illness. This generator was developed to make that day a little easier. Just fill in the information below to make a plan for your substitute teacher. Advantages: > Substitute teacher will be able to easily find out the teacher's class routine and planned activities even without personally meeting up with the teacher. > Faster relaying of information.
  31. 31. Other Kinds of Materials Generators Disadvantages/Limitations: > The importance of the face-to-face interaction of the substitute teacher and the teacher should not be overlooked. > The given plan needs to be very clear so as to avoid misunderstandings on what the substitute teacher is to do. > The need for an internet connection (sharing information). Example: >
  32. 32. Other Kinds of Materials Generators E-Books - An ebook or e-book stands for electronic > book. Words that are usually printed on paper medium are now available on screens that can be read off the computer or laptop, handhelds or PDAs and also some special ebook devices. Advantages: > Portable > The teacher can bring many books to class without the difficulty of having to carry many books. > Can be projected on a screen (for big classes)
  33. 33. Other Kinds of Materials Generators Disadvantages/Limitations: > The need for an e-book reader or device > Students also need to develop the skill of reading a printed book (i.e. involves turning pages, linear reading, etc.) Examples: > > >
