M2 – Project Plan

Design Process

Throughout my teaching career, my design process for instructional delivery, classroom activities, and learning tasks has never followed one specific model, but instead could be mapped onto a variety of them. This project draws on these models for the:

  • evaluation of classroom technology integration (SAMR)
  • design of specific learning tasks based on:
    • content to be learned (Gerlach & Erly)
    • learner needs and characteristics (ASSURE)
    • desired learning outcomes (Backwards Design)
    • learning challenges (Design Thinking)
  • design of overall curriculum (Kemp)
