Electronic Lesson Plans & Activities solutions of
Information Technology Curriculum grade 8
o The purpose of my project was to provide
the IT teachers with Electronic Lesson
Plans & Activities solutions of Information
Technology Curriculum (units that covered
in grade 8). This project developed by
following dick & cery model.
o In fact, these plans are very important to
IT teachers. This is because of the
Ministry of Education plan to replace the
traditional learning with electronic
learning. In addition, that will apply in the
way of planning and activities. Also, the
Ministry determine new way of lesson plan
must be follow. Thus, my project aims to
provide the IT teachers with examples of
these plans and solution of books
activates. I believe that these plans cannot
be as a model in a preparing study but I
hope be as standard and resources to IT
teachers who want to operate learning
o Actual status: IT teachers do not have
the new lesson plans and activities
solutions of IT curriculum. This status was
figure out from my observation and
experience in school this semester. In
addition, I interview some teachers some
did not even know about how to do it.
Therefore, I figure out that most teachers
do not have background about how to
o Desired status: The teachers have an
idea and model about lesson plans and
activities solution of textbooks.
o Gap (Need): Resources of IT teachers in
preparing of study.
Summary of Need Analysis:

Desired: have an idea and preparing of study.
model about lesson plans and
activities solution of textbooks
Reasons of the problem :
I figure out this problem by observation, experience in school
this semester and interviews with some teachers. There were
not obtainable model of new plans. Not offered answer
textbook activities. Not were available strategies for teaching.
All of that causes of complaints distributed by IT teacher in the
I have some suggested solution to fill the need (gap)
between the actual status and desired status, which are:
• Design plan of IT
curriculum grade 8 as a
sample of plans that
ministry of education follow
• Answer textbook activities
grade 8 to be easy as
model for teaching.
• Design the strategies that
are the best from my view
for each lesson.
• Determine session
distribution for units and its

audiences have high motivation to know and learn more about
lessons plan and have draft of books activities solution.
2. Information technology textbooks of grade ( 8).

:In this project, I covered units that study in grade 8
Grade 8: Unit 1: Publisher.
Unit 2: Squeak.
Unit 3: Swish.
Unit 4: Front Page.
Before, design the lessons; determine the general objectives of
IT curriculums. Determine session distribution for each unit
according to the orientation of Ministry. Then collect all files
that help teacher in operating the teaching and put it in
Then, repeat these steps when design each units in the book.
The major phases in the project focus on the part of lessons
that are under each unit. This part has the lessons plan and
activities of each lessons of the unit.
The lesson plan contains subject name, lesson objectives,
strategies and media that use for each objective.
Also, There are answer for each activities in the lesson.
So, this visualize of the project: (graph)

I delivery my project by:
• Web page in CD format.
Because CD is:
• Can be use any time, any place,
• Easy to access,
• Can be access with out connected to internet,
• Easy to use.
Analyzing learners and context:
o Learner analysis
The target audience :
→ IT teachers male & female who teach
→ Data sources:
Teachers have positive motivation to know more and more
about new lesson plans and like to gain textbooks's
IT teachers who are familiar with computer. Also, they can
learn and discover new software on their self paced.
• All the teachers have basic skills of using computer
• Operate the CD
• Have the teaching ethics
• Positive attitude toward the teaching and ministry of
• Most teachers have no experience with new way of
lessons plan and its strategies.
Prior knowledge of topic area:
• Most teachers have an experience with preparing for the
• Have information about a textbook's software.
• Have a textbook of IT grade 8.
:Attitudes towards my product
I assume that the teachers have trust to be get benefits from
the information that included in the CD.
• Motivation to know more about the new lessons plan
of grade 8.
:Analysis of learning context
:Requirement to use CD
Laptop/desktop, operate the computer
• Teachers can use the CD in anywhere, any time and
with their own pace.
• It is flexible because they are no specific time, or
place and no need to connection to the internet.
Site compatibility with instructional needs:
Instructional strategy: The strategy that this project adapts
was computer-based instruction. Thus, the teachers can watch
on their own paces and it is flexible because they are not stuck
to any specific time, or place.
Delivery approach: This program delivered on CD. In fact,
choosing this kind of delivery mediums is compatible with most
teachers characteristic on using technology. They prefer deal
with computers but they do not like connect to the web.
The constraints that I face it when design my project
and ways of overcome them:
• Difficulties in interviewing IT teachers.
Communicate with other teachers online by using forum of
IT curriculum in education portal.
• Difficulties of using Squeak software that is in unit two in
textbook grade 8.
Searched in the Internet on how to using this program and
shared with this software web site.
• Difficulties of applied my project.
There was no time enough to apply my project in real field.
However, I use Front Page Unit during teaching this
