  • 1. What does “doing it right” entail?a.   Ensuring that students have volumes of reading assignments and essays to write for their online courseb.  Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, special orders don’t upset us.c.  Known as D.I.R., it’s a set of circumstances in which one finds oneself in deep trouble.d. Online learning materials are designed properly with learners and learning in focus and that adequate support is provided.2. Describe some of the benefits of online learning.a. Great deals on great merchandise at discounted prices!b. Time and location are not an issue and instruction can be asynchronous as well as synchronous.c. Learners are locked into specific locations and strict schedules.d. Situated learning is not facilitated.3. The development of effective online learning materials should be based on what?a. Proven and sound learning theoriesb. Surveys found in People magazinec. Lower thinking level activitiesd. Schools of thought4. Which of the following is NOT one of the implications for online learning from the Behaviorist perspective?a. Learners should be told the explicit outcomes of the learning so they can set expectations.b. Learners do not have to be tested to determine if they have met the learning outcome.c. Learning materials must be sequenced appropriately to promote learning.d. Learners must be provided with feedback so that they can monitor how they are doing and take corrective action if needed.5. How should information be organized to facilitate processing?a. Information should be disseminated in large quantities since humans have limitless memory capacity.b. On note cards in antique recipe boxes.c. Information should be organized and chunked in pieces of appropriate size to facilitate processing.d. In 12 – 15 meaningful units to compensate for limited capacity.6. Which one of these is NOT an implication for online learning from the Cognitivist perspective?a. Strategies should be used to allow learners to perceive and attend to the information so that it can be transferred to working memory.b. Important information should be placed in the top right corner of the screen for reading.c. Strategies should be used to allow learners to retrieve existing information from long term memory to help make sense of new information.d. Strategies that promote deep processing should be used to help transfer information to long-term storage.7. What is the difference between field-independent and field-dependent cognitive styles?a. Field-dependent learners need Astroturf to perform.b. Field-independent learners are social butterflies and learn best in large interactive groups.c. Field-independent learners are likely to learn more effectively under conditions of intrinsic motivation and Field-dependent learners have a greater social orientation.d.

Which of the following does NOT enhance learning from a Constructivist perspective?a. Learners should allow their instructors to construct knowledge for them.b. Collaborative and cooperative learning should be encouraged to facilitate constructivist learning.c. Learners should be given control of the learning process.d. Learning should be made meaningful to learners.11. Why should learning be interactive?a. To enable learners to have more free time for socializingb. To promote greater eye-hand and spatial visualization coordination.c. To drive field-independent learners insane.d. To promote higher-level learning and social presence, and to help develop personal meaning.12. According to the levels of interaction in online learning, what are the three types of Learner-support interaction?a. learner-learner, learner-life coach, learner-expertb. learner-learner, learner-learner, learner-learnerc. learner-learner, learner-instructor, learner-expertd. learner-instructor, learner-expert, learner-schmerner This activity, when altered to fit my online learners, would be good because I can offer students some background information along with a cognitive tool to help them store the information. My learners will be much younger, so I would have to consider their levels of comprehension for this kind of assignment. This assignment/activity also a cognitive activity helps learners understand how to process information:Examples of online learning activities:Activity 1: Students work in collaborative groups to create a Thinking Map or other conceptual model of the properties and classification of minerals using a graphical wiki program such as Kerika.My Response: (How) = Cognitive Theorists believe in process and principals, and the Thinking Map and other conceptual models allows the brain to move the newly acquired information through the process to permanent storage. Activity 2: Students participate in a virtual dissection simulation called Froguts.My Response: (Why) = Constructivist learn by observingActivity 3: Students take a Blackboard online quiz after reading a story on African cultures.My Response: (How) = Cognitivists believe in the use of memory, thinking, and reflection to promote new learning.Activity 4: Students work with a partner to create a PowerPoint presentation on the steps in calculating a discount shown in percentage and computing the sales tax. My Response: (Why) = Constructivism relies on the contextualization of information for immediate application.

    1. 1. Professional Background: This is my fifth year teaching in the Jasper County School District, and my first year teaching online. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades. I am currently teaching 4th grade. Prior to earning my license to teach, I substituted for eleven years. I hold a B.S. degree in psychology, and an honorable discharge from the United States Navy. <br />On a personal note I have two great sons, Salaam and Rashaun, 18 and 28 respectively. I’m an identical twin and I have granddaughters who are also identical twins. Each of us has a dog, and consequently all of our dogs are white in color. I’m sure the granddogs will probably be white as well. <br />I’m looking forward to meeting my online learners!<br />Introduction Page<br />Hi out there! I am your online instructor, Sharon Bush, M. Ed.Email Address: sbush5@lesley.comLocation: Savannah, GeorgiaPhone: 912-330-8338 - cell<br />
    2. 2. My ideal online teaching situation would incorporate the children who attend Me TiMe, a before and after school program based in San Diego, California. It’s my brother’s foundation and I serve as the educational advisor. The children are in grades two through five and range between the ages of 6-10 years old. The families’ income ranges’ vary as well. The children are picked up at home before their school day begins and they participate in healthy, challenging, and vigorous adventures. I would like to offer those students an opportunity to improve their language arts skills and ultimately their grades through my supplemental online course work in English Language Arts.<br />
    3. 3. Online Scenario<br />Today you are going to dress up a sentence. We’ll look at a boring sentence, and we’ll look at ways to dress it up by learning how to add information to make it more interesting. While practicing with interactive activities, you will get to play dress up with the English language!<br /> <br />Here is the sentence that needs dressing up:<br />There were a lot of children playing.<br /> <br />
    4. 4. Questions: 1. From the sentence, do you know the four Ws and one H of the children playing?  USING WORDLEI would use Wordle (words that have a theme connecting them are created in a program that allows the user to size words, color them, alter their positions) to get the students to familiarize themselves to the potential question words (who, what, when, where, why, and how) to use to help add information to a sentence; thus, adding depth to the sentence.   <br />
    5. 5. My Wordle below includes some words that demonstrate my personality, my family, my pets, and my favorite travel destination. <br />Delores Campbell’s Wordle, below, has more words and shows more of her personality.<br />
    6. 6. USING SORT<br />Read the Online Student Support Services: A Best Practices Monograph, perhaps there are assessments here that will help determine online readiness. http://www.onlinestudentsupport.org/Monograph/readiness.php. The Student Online Readiness Tool also known as the SORT Assessment would fit best in this scenario to facilitate pairing my learners in online group situations, as well as their readiness for online coursework. We used Dr. Lynn Schrum’s Student Online Readiness Tool (SORT) which is available online at http://www.yourcallla.org/SORT/sort/html/tool.html and noted our strengths and weaknesses.<br />My SORT posting:<br />
    7. 7. ü Describe your current educational setting.  Are you a practitioner or pre-service teacher?  What is your current teaching assignment or major field of study? What is your interest in teaching online?<br />I’m currently teaching in an elementary school in rural South Carolina’s Low Country. I’m seeking this Technology in Education degree to supplement my degrees in Psychology and Educational Leadership to best prepare me in creating (or enhancing) a program to assist high school students to transition into the college arena.<br />ü Compare and contrast any two of the assessments described in the article, discussing which features you feel would be most relevant to your present or future students.<br />While the University of Georgia’s model caters to students’ internal motivation for their own success, it assesses the availability of necessary tools (experience, study habits, lifestyle, goals, and preferences) for success in online coursework; the smaller colleges like Coastal Bend College rely on a personal touch. They have advisors on-hand to work with students and assessing their needs for online learning. I think the hands-on assessment would be a great fit for the students in my current community. I’m in a Title One school and many of the children do not have computer access or internet availability because the area is so rural.<br />ü Share the results of your SORT assessment.  What are your strengths and weaknesses in terms of being prepared for online learning?  Be sure to include any areas in which you feel you may need assistance or advice.<br />According to the assessment, I am prepared for online coursework. I would add that I know I’m not good at managing my time for the work, although I’m always online ready to work. I have found that from the beginning to the present, I am confused about how the modules work. I can not figure out the flow. I get lost in my own mess. So I mean well, but can’t make heads or tails from the assignments in terms of what to do first, second, third, etc. There’s one assignment here with the associated readings somewhere else. The assignments are all over the place. So I may be prepared and ready for online learning, but find it tremendously discomforting to not be able to figure out Modules, Discussions, Assignments, and timelines for submission when they are not jumping off the screen and grabbing my attention.<br />
    8. 8. USING the MEDIEVAL PERSONALITY Profile<br />
    9. 9. My results:<br />Your distinct personality, The Engineer-Builder might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time. Your overriding goal is to stick with the plan and get the job done. “If it ain’t broken don’t fix it” is your motto. You provide structure and stability to your world. Your procedures are predictable and dependable. Your methods are proven and tested. You offer results not surprises. On the positive side, you are practical, just,realistic, pragmatic and rational. On the negative side, you may be dogmatic, rigid, short-sighted, indecisive and unimaginative. Interestingly, your preference is just applicable in today’s corporate kingdoms.<br />Postings included my online cohorts agreeing or disagreeing with my Engineer-Builder finding. My dear friend posted this: When I saw the term engineer-builder for you I wonder what that was all about. I do see the pragmatic side of you. You say what you think and you mean what you say. If we ask a question we must be sure we really want the answer or not just the answer we want to hear. What you want and don't want is clear wither swing with me or not. I depend on you for those things I mentioned. You always seem like a person that has a lot going on and seemingly under control that side of you that can only focus on one thing at a time doesn't seem to fit. I don't know if builder engineer is the right overall term for you.<br /> <br /><ul><li>Once the students have an idea of where they possibly fit into a group, their group participation may be quite interesting. I do prefer goal setting and focusing on the goal through completion. </li></li></ul><li>Theories of Online Learning Teaching online will offer challenges I am preparing to meet through articles from this course with Dr. McBride, including this article she made available in two ways:I will use this to inform learners of online learning in English Language Arts.<br />
    10. 10. Foundations of Educational Theory for Online Learning or http://cde.athabascau.ca/online_book/pdf/TPOL_chp01.pdfDr. McBride provided learners with a Divide and Conquer cognitive technique for managing the lengthy article and followed by a quiz. See courtesy copy of quiz below (see notes section) :Blackboard Quiz for Foundations of Educational Theory for Online LearningThis is a courtesy copy of the quiz (see notes section) to help you to prepare.  You must access the online version of the quiz in the Online Quiz folder and complete it.  Your grade will automatically be posted to your online grades feature.  Please note that the questions and/or the answer choices for the online quiz will probably not be presented in the order in which they appear here!This is a great activity for students to use to breaking large reading pieces into smaller more manageable pieces. <br />
    11. 11. Platform Ad:<br />I would use this platform assignment to help students familiarize themselves with the different avenues for displaying their own work.<br />I used Microsoft Publisher to share three platforms. I learned several new things from this assignment, for instance, the word platform. I never heard it before or simply ignored it because I didn't know what it was. Nonetheless, I chose Moodle, Blackboard, and TopClass, and selected TopClass as the better choice because of its appeal to the corporate sector. Education is a business, right?  TopClass does not assume that one-size-fits-all. That's a winner!<br />The brochure is located at MoodleBrochure.doc.pub<br /> <br />
    12. 12. Scenario and Voice Relevant readingsLearning Online Facilitation Online (239.826 Kb) The Top Ten Tenets of Effective Online Facilitation (44.688 Kb) The Scenario (25 Kb)<br />
    13. 13. The Scenario<br />A teacher posts this writing prompt in the online discussion forum:<br />Choose an experience in which you helped others by serving as a volunteer, making a charitable donation, or stepping in to help make a situation better.  In one paragraph describe the experience.  In another paragraph explain why that experience is worth sharing with others.  In the third paragraph describe how much information you would need to include to make sure your audience understands and appreciates the significance of your actions.<br />The student posts this response:<br />One Thanksgiving, my family and I decided to help out at the Salvation Army by helping to cook and serve dinner.  We worked hard to help these people.  Some of them were very nice to us and some seemed to be embarrassed because they were there.  Even though I missed my mother’s home cooked meal that day, I still feel good because we helped. The information I included to ensure that the audience understands and appreciates the significance of my actions is to tell them that we worked hard and gave up Thanksgiving Dinner at our house.<br /> <br />Our task was to reply to this student, using what I think is an appropriate voice and tone. Dr. McBride asked us to remember that we are addressing the whole class, not just this student so that everyone learns more about planning and drafting a paragraph, and that the online dialog is extended, focused, or redirected to promote my learning goals. <br /> <br />Assignment for posting: After you have posted your response to the student, reply to your posting identifying the type of voice and tone from the article, Learning Online Facilitation Online that best describes yours.  Also include how your response furthered your learning goals.  <br />
    14. 14. My Response to Scenario: <br />Volunteering as a family is very rewarding, I would agree. Certainly there are people who appreciated your help during the holiday season, and thank you for sharing your experience and completing the assignment. The first paragraph asked for description of the experience and you have done that. The second paragraph, although you explained why the experience was worth sharing with others, you need to devise an additional paragraph, because that information is significant enough to carry its weight in a separate paragraph. Your family gave up a wonderful dinner at home to share yourselves with those less fortunate. That’s awesome! Do you think you will help the Salvation Army again?<br />
    15. 15. My Response to Voice and Tone:<br />My tone and voice leans toward the Conceptual Facilitator where I focused on specific elements of the writing components because I want learners to get the most bang for their buck. There were a number of steps to the assignment. Although the learner did not respond with the depth I may have responded to such an experience, I have to consider the many factors leading to the shallow (my opinion) response of the learner, and make the effort not to respond with emotion. <br />
    16. 16. Learner Interaction posting:<br /><ul><li>I rank the interactions as follows: Student-teacher, student-content, and then student-student</li></ul> First I agree the student is at the center of the Education Interactions, so to place the student-teacher at the front of the line-up set in motion the interaction for the teacher to initiate, facilitate, and set goals and boundaries for online learning. Following would be the student-content interaction. The facilitators connect the students with learning specific goals and their educational content; while the student-student interaction serves as additional modes for understanding new information, connecting new information, lineation of new information, and as some modern constructivist theorists suggest (Theory and Practice Online, p. 46) collaboration between students ‘illustrates potential gains in cognitive learning tasks.’ Knowing that students select online learning for various reasons, it is understood that peer-peer interaction will be minimal, although research shows us how this interaction can be important (Slavin, 1995).<br />Sharon Bush<br />
    17. 17. Heather Dagle’s response to my posting:Sharon, I appreciate everything you've said.  I just am struggling to clearly see how the student-teacher interaction is most important in an online course.  I think about my personal experiences with online learning and from my perspective the interaction I had with the content was more important than the interaction I had with the facilitator. <br />I would use these articles: Learner Interactions in Online Collaborative Learning Environments (91 Kb) Toward a Theory of Online Learning (303.761 Kb) to help my students understand the evolution of relationships online and how they develop.<br />
    18. 18.  Introduction<br />Welcome to Me Time Online. This Learner Support Agreement for this online course serves as a confirmation for both the student and instructor as we agree to the defined expectations of each other throughout the course.  Please be aware that our responsibilities to the online environment will make the course work more enjoyable and a success for all.<br />Workspace<br />In your workspace on Googledocs (I have created a space for you that is password protected) there are tools that are exclusively viewed or owned by you.

    20. 20. AUPThis website contains our Acceptable Use Policy and Parent Guide.http://pages.suddenlink.net/lesleydmac1/Module5Group2.htm<br />
    21. 21. Without assuming each student understands what’s acceptable while communicating online this agreement offers clarity and I will use it when teaching online.<br />
    22. 22. <ul><li>As an online instructor I want to have a rubric in place to allow the students clarity in my expectations for acceptable group course work. To ensure know how to use any rubric attach instructions for its use.</li></ul>Effective Collaborator Rubric Instructions:<br />1.  Access the Effective Collaborator Rubric from the Module Assessments Folder.<br />2. Save the rubric to your word processing program.<br />3. Select a color to use for your self-evaluation and make a note of that in the heading of the rubric.  Highlight the sections or text for each rubric indicator that you feel applies to your individual work on the project using your color.  You may also type in your score in each section of the rubric and color code it.  Then post your individual total score at the top of the rubric.  <br />4. Repeat step 3 for the group evaluation.  If you are using the same sections on the rubric for both individual and group evaluation, then use your color for half the section and the group color for the other half of the section or you can just type in the group score in each applicable section and color code it!<br />5. Add color coded comments below the rubric if you'd like!  I really appreciate detailed feedback on each assignment which I use to improve the next term's course!<br />6. Save a copy of the rubric with your name included in the file name.  Ex. Sharon.bush.Eval<br />7. Post to the Instructor's Digital Drop Box.<br />

The Effective Collaborator Rubric for Group Project and Self Evaluation:Name of Student Being Evaluated: Sharon BushEvaluation Date: May 29, 2011Total Score: Individual = 175 Group = 175Evaluator’s Name: Sharon BushAlways include an avenue for evaluation on collaborations both the group and individual<br />
    24. 24.
    25. 25. Group evalcomment:<br />The group sort of ran out of steam before we even began, due to technical difficulties. As I tell my students, “Don’t to stop until all avenues are exhausted,” I adopted my own philosophy when faced with a technical problem. That’s also why I’m glad I have the neighbors I have. I contacted the group member who hadn’t checked in and encouraged her to contact Kristy, who I think volunteered to take the lead on this one. April did eventually contact her, but we had already assumed the responsibility.<br />Individual eval comment:<br />It was confusing to me at the beginning because, like I<br />continue to say, there are a number of sections to a module <br />and I continue to struggle with skipping versus viewing <br />all pages of the modules. I had no idea of the group <br />members or number of members until Kristy notified me. <br />Of course I appreciate her contact, just surprised. <br />
    26. 26. <ul><li>Online Learners with special needs who require tools to aid them in experiencing successes will benefit greatly from my knowledge of Universal Design for Learning or UDL. </li></ul>What is Universal Design for Learning? http://www.cast.org/research/udl/index.html <br />Universal Design for Learning Guidelines http://www.udlcenter.org/aboutudl/udlguidelines<br />
    27. 27. Universal Design for Learning<br />Implementing a universal design for learners (regular education students, resource students, gifted students, and English language learners) is a strategy I have tried to incorporate in all my teaching. Because my youngest is hearing impaired, I found I was offering his teachers some best practice methods for ensuring his learning styles were being tapped, and I continue these practices  A good instructor sets out to discover solutions to learning barriers. There are many avenues around such barriers and I have included some below: <br />
    28. 28.
    29. 29. A UDL includes differentiating instruction for students by modifying instruction in a way that increases the degree of success the student experiences without altering the content or the learning goals. I’m always looking for a way to create lesson plans that help all students practice and apply new learning.<br />
    30. 30. Sheilah Mervin is a Special Needs teacher in my school and her take on a UDL includes:<br />Universal Design for Learning is a plan for curriculum and instruction. The word universal refers to every student/learner. The word design refers to how those students will learn (the blueprint). The word learning refers to the ability all students to learn but that they learn differently. Today’s classrooms are diverse because students have different needs and those needs should be addressed within the curriculum. The goals for UDL is for students gain knowledge, skills and instill motivation/enthusiasm in learning. Important factors of designing curriculum to meet the needs of students <br />Identify the goal of the learning<br />Identify any barriers to learning<br />Eliminate the barriers<br />Barriers are eliminated through flexibility planning and providing instruction in meeting the needs of all students through. <br />Multiple means of representation - give learners various ways of acquiring information and knowledge,<br />Multiple means of expression - provide learners options for demonstrating what they know, and<br />Multiple means of engagement- use learners' interests, challenge them appropriately, and motivate them to learn<br />As a teacher of students with learning disabilities, I am aware of the barriers my students have academically and behaviorally as well. Ways to accommodate the barriers and how to modify the curriculum so that instruction is included in their IEP (individual education plans) and have to take into account daily. These students already feel unsuccessful because of their disability so providing them instruction information, activities on their academic level gives them an opportunity for success in learning. Success in learning increases motivation.<br />
