Assignment 3 | Draft Digital Learning Resource and Design Note (Individual)

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to create a draft of the digital learning resource you proposed to create in Assignment 1. Based on feedback from your faculty member for Assignment 1, you will refine your idea (Ideation) and create a prototype of your design based on your reflection of your problem of practice, your exploration of learning theory that informs design, and what you have continued to learn from the potential users of your resource. You will add information about your Empathy, Ideate, and Prototype design phases to your original Design Note.

Instructions

Using the learning from Activities 1, 4, and 5 in Unit 2, as well as lessons learned in Unit 1, refine and develop a draft of your digital learning resource. Your design rationale should be clearly explained in your accompanying Design Note. Your choices should reflect evidence-based design practice as well as one or more learning theories that align with your problem of practice and the learning needs of your potential learners. You are welcome to use any type of educational technology solution to enhance the pedagogic design of your resource as long as the faculty member and your peers can view your resource in progress. Whether or not you choose to create your resource as an OER (open educational resource) comes down to personal choice and/or the needs of your potential learners. The scope of your resource design (how large or small, how long it takes the learners to complete) should reflect a combination of factors including:  how effectively you believe it solves your problem of practice; the needs of your learners; and your personal time to create both a draft and final version of your resource for purposes of this course. Your reflections on scope should be included in your Design Note.

Evidence Based Design

 

The design clearly demonstrates the Learning theory/theories & assessment model that are applied to the creation of the solution, clearly shows the process of the reflection on the problem of practice. The design is human-centered.

The design mostly demonstrates attachment to the learning theory/theories & assessment model that are applied to the creation of the solution, most of the time showing the process of the reflection on the problem of practice. Design displays mostly uses human-centered.

The design demonstrates some attachment to the learning theory/theories & assessment model that are applied to the creation of the solution, somewhat shows the process of the reflection on the problem of practice. Design is partially human-centered.

The design lacks attachment to learning theory/theories & assessment model that are applied to the creation of the solution, does not show the process of the reflection on the problem of practice. The design is not human-centered.

 

 

Design Prototype

 

The design clearly illustrates refinement of ideas for prototype, clearly demonstrates how the solution addresses the problem of practice, and clearly within the scope of design.

The design mostly illustrates refinement of idea for prototype, shows mostly how the solution addresses the problem, and mostly within the scope of design.

The design illustrates some of the refinement of idea for prototype, some of how the solution addresses the problem, and somewhat falls within the scope of design.

The design lacks refinement of idea of prototype, does not contribute to (partially) find a solution to the problem and does not address the problem. Does not fall within the scope of design.

 

 

Design Note

 

Prototype design phases are clearly reflected in the note; design rationale is clearly described, reflection on scope is clearly explained and identified.

Prototype design phases are mostly explained in the note; design rationale is mostly described, reflection on scope is mostly explained and identified.

Prototype design phases have some explanation in the note; design rationale is partially described, reflection on scope is somewhat explained.

Prototype design phases are lacking in the note; design rationale is not described, reflection on scope is missing.
