  • Please discuss with class about the 2 case analysis they need to work as a group and the points assigned to each case (75 points) You will complete two case analysis write-ups. You will work as a content-area group on a case that we will provide you Schedule: See the W200 Website for more info: Case Analysis #1: Due Week 8 Case Artifacts #1: Due Week 11 Case Analysis #2: Due Week 13 Case Artifacts #2: Due Week 15
  • Characteristics – let ’s highlight the actual items in Microsoft Word. MUST NOT DECIDE BEFORE STEP 3. Keep an open-mind.
  • Week 5.3

    1. 1. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS <ul><li>We have just done a role play. What is case analysis in your own words? </li></ul>
    2. 2. CASE ANALYSIS: WHAT IS IT? <ul><li>It is a learning tool where: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students teach themselves through exploring an existing problem or situation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thoughtful and critical reflection and analysis is valued </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Description of an actual or a hypothetical classroom situation involving a decision to be made or a problem to be solved </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An existing situation will be presented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A desired (different) outcome is presented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is your job to decide how to move from the existing situation to the desired one </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Think of yourself as a consultant, brought in to assist a busy teacher with a problem. </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. CASE ANALYSIS: WHY DO IT? <ul><li>Through case analysis you will learn: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify the problem and any requirements (standards) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to assess the needs or characteristics of your learners, environment etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to look for the many, many appropriate options you could use to solve the problem or meet the requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to make decisions among various technology offerings based on the 3Es that best meet the needs and characteristics you discovered </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How to justify your decisions </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. Case Analysis: Why do it? <ul><li>Teachers do this all of the time – whether they think about it or not. </li></ul><ul><li>Part of planning for teaching is understanding and offering solutions to new challenges </li></ul>
    5. 5. CASE ANALYSIS: TIPS <ul><li>Know the details of your case </li></ul><ul><li>Approach the problem from many different angles </li></ul><ul><li>Analyze, do not describe it - that requires a bit more effort </li></ul><ul><li>Do not assume anything – or at least be explicit about your assumptions </li></ul>
    6. 6. INTRODUCING CASE ANALYSIS <ul><li>Case Analysis is many things: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Brainstorming </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Problem solving </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Re-imagining </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Video: Apollo 13 clip on brainstorming a case </li></ul><ul><li>What does this video tell us about problem solving and analyzing cases? </li></ul>
    7. 7. CAN YOU THINK OF FAMOUS CASE ANALYSTS? SHERLOCK HOLMES “ When you eliminate the impossible, what remains is (or might be) true, however unlikely.” GREGORY HOUSE Brainstorms possibilities, eliminates the impossible, tests out possibilities until he reaches conclusion. NANCY DREW
    8. 8. FOR W200 CASE ANALYSIS PROJECTS <ul><li>You will become a case analyst </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A teacher has a problem/difficulty teaching a particular topic or adapting to certain problems, and this teacher teaches in your content area </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You are a teacher who knows how to use and integrate technology into your teaching. You are consulting with this teacher, offering possibilities and a solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You will go through a step-by-step process to make a technology integration decision to help that teacher </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You will complete two case analyses using a pre-created template and process: We call this the Case Analysis Process </li></ul>
    10. 10. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS STEP 1: IDENTIFY STANDARD & NEEDS <ul><li>IDENTIFY STANDARD(S) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What standard(s) do you need to address? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the learning goal(s) ? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>NEEDS OF THE CASE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Who are your learners ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the teaching/learning environment ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the problem(s) ? </li></ul></ul>
    11. 11. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS STEP 2: BRAINSTORM & SEARCH OPTIONS <ul><li>OPTIONS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Look for as many options as possible </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Look for options (tools, technologies, approaches) that could be useful in your case </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For instance, for concept maps tools available are Inspiration, Gliffy, Text2Mind Map, Mind Meister, Bubbl.us, MS Word, MS Excel </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Options should be relevant and unique (not repeats) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remember… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>One tool does not meet all the needs of your classroom </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>But a set of tools will address all the needs of your classroom </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Just because you find one you like does not mean that you stop looking – look for as many possible options </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    12. 12. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS STEP 3: WHAT TECHNOLOGY <ul><li>WHAT HAVE YOU CHOSEN? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Step 1: List what options you have chosen, and be explicit about how it will be used. Just because you list it does not mean the reader will understand how you intend for the option to be used in the classroom. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Step 2: Review whether you have options for each need expressed in your case. You will have to defend it! </li></ul></ul>
    13. 13. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS STEP 4: WHY AND REFLECTION <ul><li>WHY </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Why are your choices appropriate ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Why are you choices better than the alternatives ? Than all of the other options? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How do your choices solve the problem ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How do your choices help meet the standards being taught? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the 3Es to support your reasoning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: Why would you choose Inspiration over Visio, MS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Word and MS Excel? And discuss why? </li></ul></ul>
    14. 14. CASE ANALYSIS PROCESS STEP 4: WHY AND REFLECTION <ul><li>REFLECTION </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Are you addressing the needs of your case? Prove it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you decisions meet the needs of your case? Really? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If not, revisit your options and recommendation(s) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If they do, make the connections for the reader. Show it (more of a proof, less of a justification) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>So, how am I going to apply case analysis process in this class? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Case Analysis Project #1 </li></ul></ul>
