EDTC 6323: Instructional Technology

Interactive Multimedia Project

Project Description:

Using the Dick and Carey instructional design model, I developed a multimedia object in order to enhance my instructional unit designed in 6321. The project is broken down into three parts:

  • Part 1: Design Document. Plan a multimedia/hypermedia learning object for a specific instructional need
  • Part 2: Learning Object. Produce the planned leaning object using available resources
  • Part 3: Summative Evaluation. Evaluate the learning object for quality and effectiveness. Key assessment also includes a design rationale. 

Responsibilities Met:

Responsibility 2: Design. The candidate will design instruction (or human performance strategies) to meet the needs of learners. Design documents and projects must show evidence of analysis of problem situation, awareness of unique characteristics of intended audience and implications for instruction, selection and implementation instructional strategies consistent with analysis of the learning situation and intended learners, selection and justification of appropriate medias, and evidence of both formative and summative evaluation strategies.

Performance Indicators Justification
2.1 Demonstrates ability to perform analysis and documentation of instructional need or opportunity resulting in student-centered, performance based instructional objectives based upon, and appropriate for, a specific audience.

2.1  First to begin this project, I chose a topic and researched using peer reviewed articles. I researched the effectiveness of classroom wikis and chose this as my topic for my instructional design unit.  The goal for my project was to promote communication with teachers, parents, and students through the use of classroom wikis. I created an instructional unit over how to create a classroom wiki. I created a wiki page that complied all training materials, screen shots, quizzes, surveys etc.

2.3 Demonstrates ability to select and integrate into instruction a variety of research-based instructional strategies.  2.3 In my instructional design unit, I integrated many instructional strategies to meet the needs of all types of learners. I uploaded my instructional unit into the training wiki for those participants that need to have a hard copy of the instructional unit for direct instruction. For visual learners I created screen shots for each step on how to create and set up a classroom wiki. Participants were also given the flow chart to serve as a diagram of each part of the training, which could be used a checklist to make sure each step was completed. 

2.5 Demonstrates ability to use formative evaluations for interactive assessments of components of the design process.

2.5 For my formal evaluations, I conducted one-to-one and small group evaluations with colleagues from my school. I provided them with my instructional unit and training guide to complete the training on their own. The formal assessment informed the designer whether or not participants were able to successfully complete the goals and objectives of the instructional unit. Upon completing, participants provided the designer with feedback in order to make modifications to improve and enhance the training. 

Responsibility 3: Development, Utilization and Management. The candidate will develop, utilize and manage a variety of media and instructional technologies to deliver instruction to students.

Performance Indicators Justification
3.1 Demonstrates ability to develop instruction using a minimum of three different medias.

3.1 Various Web 2.0 applications were used to enhance my instructional unit. My instructional unit developed in 6321 was based on the Web 2.0 application called PBWorks wiki spaces. I used Jing to take screen shots of various steps in order to create visuals for participants to use as a guide. Screenr was used to create the multimedia presentations, tutorial videos, so participants could assist them in completing the steps. Google drive was used to create the pre and post survey participants were asked to take before and after the training. The mini assessments were created using Quibblo after each section of the training. These were inactive assessments that provided participants with immediate feedback after answering the multiple choice and true/false questions. 

3.2 Applies research-based rationale for the selection and utilization of technologies for learning.

3.2 Our instructional unit was based on the instructional design model known as the Dick and Carey Model. I followed the step-by-step process to design an effective instructional unit. I first identified the instructional goal in create the specific goal for the instructional unit. From there I was able to write the performance objectives and create an in-depth task analysis for our training guide. Then I created training materials for the participants to use through out the training session. 

3.3 Demonstrates ability to manage projects and evaluate progress and improvement. 

3.3 During this course we were provided with an course outline that provided the completion dates of each part of the instructional document. After receiving feedback, modifications were then made to the project in order to enhance the instructional unit before continuing onto the next part of the project. 

3.4 Uses the results of evaluation methods to revise and update instructional materials. 3.4 After each evaluation was complete participants completed a post-survey to document their experience in completing the training. This information and assess the wiki spaces that were created gave the designer feedback and suggestions in order to revise and enhance the training materials. 

Responsibility 4: Evaluation. The candidate uses incisive and relevant assessment and evaluation techniques (e.g., product or project which uses formative and/or summative evaluations). Candidate demonstrates the ability to evaluate quality of instructional materials and instructional systems using appropriate methodologies. Candidate also demonstrates the ability to use formative and summative assessment methodologies to ascertain the effectiveness of instruction in meeting instructional goals.

Performance Indicators Justification
4.2 Demonstrates ability to use summative strategies to evaluate the quality of instruction.

4.2 The training material was presented to six individuals (five teachers and librarian), where participants were asked to complete their own classroom wiki. At the end of the training, participants were asked to fill out an evaluation form using a Likert-Scale and were asked to provide any comments at the bottom. 

4.3 Demonstrates ability to select a variety of appropriate assessment instruments and use those instruments to assess effectiveness of instruction in meeting instructional objectives. 

4.3 A post-survey was created to serve as a self-reflection survey of over completing the training. Participants were asked to rate the difficulties in completing each step of the training, which would assess the effectiveness of the instruction. By letting me know if they had any difficulties in completing a section of the training, this would in turn let me know what parts of the training I should consider revising in order to make it easier for future participants. A checklist was also used when evaluating participants' classroom wiki. This was used to check if participants were able to meet the goals and objectives of the training.  

Modifications Made

To enhance the instructional unit and training materials created in 6321 the following modifications were made:

  • Created and embedded pre and post surveys using Google Drive
  • Created and embedded interactive quizzes using Quibblo
  • Recorded multimedia presentations using Screenr
  • Embedded tutorial videos into training wiki space
