Join Renaldo Lawrence for an in-depth discussion in this video Discussing the workflow, part of Creating Multimedia Learning.
- I like to set a meeting with the teacher…or teacher's assistant to discuss the entire workflow.…I request that they bring four things to the meeting,…the overall curriculum,…a lesson plan from the curriculum…which they wish to make interactive.…Now this can be in the form of a Google Document,…a PowerPoint presentation, or a Microsoft Word document.…Any asset they wish to use in the project…and most important to me, an open mind.…
The initial process is about making…the teacher as comfortable as possible.…During the first meeting we look at…the teacher's overall lesson objectives,…what they teach, how they deliver…the materials to the class, and most important…how we can integrate video, audio and text…to create a learning experience, which will…engage the students and allow them…to learn at their own pace.…It is very important that the applications…are differentiated, allowing us to ensure…that it is suitable for student engagement.…
Now I consider this meeting the…make-or-break point in the whole process.…It's that look in the teacher's eyes…
