Rationale behind feature selection
We have discovered that there are a number of aspects to consider when choosing a feature. Synchronization is important to us as well as online collaboration. Classroom based learning will be part of the learning design so we are looking ideally for a single platform feature that can be used throughout the learning design.
After filtering the Category field to display synchronous tools there were no tools available to select from. We decided to use the Alternated Individual and Group Discourse from the PDP
In our group’s learning design learners need to watch a multimedia clip depicting certain behaviors. They are then asked to analyze it in terms of the positive aspects of the behavior and negative aspects of it and post their individual comments on a feature. They also have to review their fellow learners’ comments. They then have to discuss the effectiveness of the behavior in a group and suggest what could be done better in that situation.The learners need to look at another multimedia clip and follow the same process. The groups need to decide which of the two sets of behaviors were the most effective and create simulated situations where the desired behavior is repeated. Each individual needs to reflect on their learning and take this learning up with the coach.
This feature is connected to 9 principles:
- Engage learners in complex projects
- Provide teachers with supports for adaptation
- Promote productive interactions
- Encourage learners to learn from others
- Employ multiple social activity structures
- Encourage reflection
- Establish a generalized inquiry process
- Create a clear and engaging flow of activities
- Involve students in evaluation processes
Please evaluate the intended use of the feature and comment on gaps, additions or other application of the feature. Please comment before Monday 18:00 GMT.
Chris and Alice have reviewed comments and revised our pattern, it can be view via this link:
Download the pattern and open it is the designer screen. Alternatively you can view it via user generated pattern screen, the name of our pattern is Skill Practice_Revised.
