Instructional strategy

  1. 1. RUNNING HEAD: Instructional Strategy: Excel 2010 for DBL group 1 Instructional Strategies: Pre instructional Activities: The vodcast will start with a series of questions, which are designed to grab the attention of the learners. Once the learners have been motivated and the relevance of the subject matter has been established they will be presented with another set of questions on pre-requisite entry skills. If the learners answer “no” to any of these questions they will be asked to acquire those skills and complete the training module at a later time. The questions used in the vodcast may be found in Appendix I. After this series of questions, there will be a brief break in questioning when the anticipation guide is presented to the learners. This guide will be a series of eight questions that the learners will respond to by placing a check next to them if they agree with. The anticipation guide is designed to give them a boost in confidence by assuring them that they already know something about the unit and to transition them to the training that is to come. The anticipation guide will then be re-presented at the end of the training session in order to show the learners a growth in their learning. The questions used for the anticipation guide can be found in Appendix II. Content Presentation This is a performance-based project. It will be delivered in two programs in either two separate computers or on the same computer with two programs running side by side. The learners will switch between the two in order to link the instructions with their learning. The training module will be delivered through a video podcast involving a screen cast demonstrating the desired activity and the objective. For each of the steps or a new objective there will be a simulated
  2. 2. RUNNING HEAD: Instructional Strategy: Excel 2010 for DBL group 2 activity containing a screen cast of the activity so it is easy for the learners for follow through with the direction. The learners will also be presented with a quick reference diagram so that they can visualize their learning process. The diagram can be found in Appendix III. In order to assess their performance a series of interactive questioning will be embedded after each objective or step of the training has been completed. The unit as a whole may be presented to the learners as a standalone activity or in a group setting where the learners can collaborate amongst each other. Learners will be able to access the training guide anytime on the Refugee School website. The training guide, instruction material and assessment questions may be found in Appendix IV. Learner Participation: Throughout the training the learners will be presented with questions to check understanding and receive feedback. This unit is recommended for training in a group setting so that learners can give each other feedback and consult for any tips. Activities in most of the steps are designed in such a way that any further activities are based on the understanding and performance of the previous activity. Therefore, learners can check their performance directly before moving onto the next section. These entry-level skills may be checked and verified through the use of the anticipation guide. If the learners do not possess the entry skills they may go through additional training in order to be ready for the instructional unit. The learners may be able to evaluate themselves on their
  3. 3. RUNNING HEAD: Instructional Strategy: Excel 2010 for DBL group 3 achievements upon completion of the unit and using the rubric. Besides, upon completion of each of the steps in the training learners will be posed with a series of interactive application questions, which will act as a self-assessment and evaluation. These application questions may be found in Appendix V. Answers to the questions are found in Appendix VI. Learners may be able to get feedback from their peers as well. The final task in this unit is to create a gradebook and assign a grade to a group of students. After completion of the task the evaluator or the learners themselves may be able to assess the learning and performance through the use of the rubric, which can be found in Appendix VII. After completing the unit learners will be posed with the anticipation guide to assess the growth in their learning. Learners will also be asked to respond to a survey as an evaluation for the instructional unit. Follow through activities: The vodcast is a real world experience, which will enhance the learner’s overall experience of learning. Although there is no memorization required learners will be able to visualize the learning processes by referring to the diagram in Appendix III. The diagram outlines the entire process of the training module. Media and delivery mode: The training material will be delivered through a web-based vodcast through the use of online media tool such as a YouTube. This training will be an independent study material with feedback from an independent evaluator or a peer. Media that have been selected for the instructional unit are as follow:
  4. 4. RUNNING HEAD: Instructional Strategy: Excel 2010 for DBL group 4 Vodcast: The vodcast containing the anticipation guide and the questions will be emailed to all learners. Screen cast and simulation: Will be available through a YouTube video Training guide: will be emailed to all the learners. Diagram: Will be emailed to all learners.
