Final Presentation (2)

  1. 2. <ul><li>What is WizIQ? </li></ul><ul><li>Our Recommendation </li></ul><ul><li>Learning Principles & Theories </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation & Statistics </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested Improvements </li></ul><ul><li>Final Recommendation </li></ul>
  2. 7. <ul><li>We recommend WizIQ as a powerful learning tool for elementary statistics course for university students. </li></ul><ul><li>Adheres to many e-Learning principles and theories and the cognitive perspective of learning. </li></ul>
  3. 8. <ul><li>Recognizes individual differences and a variety of learning strategies to recognize those differences. </li></ul>
  4. 9. <ul><li>Information is presented in different modes to accommodate individual differences in processing and to facilitate transfer to long term memory </li></ul>
  5. 10. <ul><li>Facilitate all sensors, focusing the learner’s attention by highlighting important and critical information </li></ul>
  6. 11. <ul><li>Learning content can be chunked to prevent cognitive overload. </li></ul><ul><li>The teacher encourages students to use their meta-cognitive skills by reflecting on what they learned, collaborating with other learners or checking on their progress. </li></ul>
  7. 12. <ul><li>Students can be guided by explanation demonstration and work to achieve higher levels of thinking if they are guided by more capable and competent adults (ZPD) </li></ul><ul><li>Zone of Proximal development </li></ul>
  8. 13. <ul><li>Right on time instruction </li></ul><ul><li>Expert interaction </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students receive immediate responses to their questions and are able to collaborate with the instructor so that they can accomplish more than they could if they worked independently. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 14. <ul><li>Students go beyond their current skill and knowledge levels through instruction that asks students to resolve problems. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>During the sessions the instructor is able to give direction so that students are better able to solve problems that they have previously attempted </li></ul></ul>
  10. 15. <ul><li>Dual-channels Assumption </li></ul>
  11. 16. <ul><li>Limited Channel Assumption </li></ul>
  12. 17. <ul><li>Active Processing Assumption </li></ul>
  13. 19. <ul><li>Intrinsic Load </li></ul><ul><li>Germane Load </li></ul><ul><li>Extraneous Load </li></ul>
  14. 20. <ul><li>Provide explanatory feedback </li></ul>
  15. 21. <ul><li>Does not give feedback </li></ul>
  16. 22. <ul><li>Adjust the amount of practice </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute practice </li></ul><ul><li>Transition from examples to practice questions gradually. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide explanatory feedback </li></ul>
  17. 23. <ul><li>Ratings for each principle was converted to numeric data: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not Applied 1 point </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Somewhat Applied 2 points </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Well Applied 3 Points </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>INST = Instructional Aspect of WizIQ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PRCT = Test Practice Question on WizIQ </li></ul></ul>
  18. 24. <ul><li>INST-Instructional Aspects of WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.78 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PRCT – Test Practice Questions on WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.11 </li></ul></ul>
  19. 25. <ul><li>INST-Instructional Aspects of WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.91 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PRCT – Test Practice Questions on WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.00 </li></ul></ul>
  20. 26. <ul><li>INST-Instructional Aspects of WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.85 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PRCT – Test Practice Questions on WizIQ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mean = 2.05 </li></ul></ul>
  21. 27. <ul><li>“ I liked using the WizIQ compared to other e-learning models because it is like you are actually in class. The instructor is able to answer any questions and then you can actually see problems being worked out.” </li></ul><ul><li>John </li></ul>
  22. 28. <ul><li>&quot;Well this is my first time using any chat line or room. I must admit I really like the WizIQ due to you can hear or actually speak or talk and type out what you want from the person.” </li></ul><ul><li>Mary </li></ul>
  23. 29. <ul><li>“ I like the function to be able to see you write the problem and hear you at the same Time. I do not know how or if it is possible for the students to talk. I like being able to type questions and watch and listen to answers. I like it better than the web ct chats.” </li></ul><ul><li>Sue </li></ul>
  24. 30. <ul><li>“ Hearing the instructors voice is so much more reassuring and easier to follow than just the writing you could see in other online chats. I like that we can raise our hands and go back and revisit the previous chats if we need to see an explanation again.” </li></ul><ul><li>Bob </li></ul>
  25. 31. <ul><li>“ It's nice to get to hear the teacher talk, and I think it helps to maintain some kind of order that way. It is more difficult to follow what is happening when everyone is just all typing at once.” </li></ul><ul><li>  Joel </li></ul>
  26. 32. <ul><li>“ I really like it better compared to using the boring Webct chat room. You can actually talk to each other on Wiz IQ rather than typing. Webct only gives you the option of typing. I prefer using the Wiz IQ better. Webct should make a way of communicating to each other similar to Wiz IQ or I wish all other online classes would use this tool also. “ </li></ul><ul><li>  Kirk </li></ul>
  27. 33. <ul><li>&quot;I have enjoyed the chat sessions that I was able to attend. But I had a lot of trouble getting into last nights session. I was showing about 20 blocked pop-ups and everytime I clicked the &quot;Enter Session&quot; button, nothing happened. But I do like being able to hear the instructor speak and work problems at the same time.” </li></ul><ul><li>  Paula </li></ul>
  28. 34. <ul><li>Students should use a microphone/headset combo to participate in the chat to avoid the echo effect. </li></ul><ul><li>Students may choose to purchase a basic writing tablet so that they can more easily use the whiteboard. </li></ul>
  29. 35. <ul><li>Students should only use: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>test practice questions developed by their instructor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a set of questions selected from the practice questions by the instructor. </li></ul></ul>
