Join Renaldo Lawrence for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing project constraints, part of Teaching Techniques: Creating Multimedia Learning.
- Working in a school there are plenty constraints,…such as time, budgets, and software.…It is important when working with teachers…that you are very respectful of each teacher's time.…So, being able to set up a meeting…can come at any time.…In the hallway, at lunchtime,…after a meeting, before a meeting,…or any time you have contact with that teacher.…The way that we can ensure…that we are respectful of each other's time…is to organize a meeting the same time each week.…
For example, at my school I'm presently working…with the French and German departments.…Since we work on a two-week timetable…I have organized one week where I meet the German teacher…the first two periods in the day,…and I meet the French teacher…the next week period three.…This works very well,…as it gives us time to work together…and not have to worry about rushing…to get through the content.…And since these periods are their free periods,…they're happy to give the time…because of the benefits of the final product.…
The other really important point…
Elearning expert Renaldo Lawrence takes a typical lecture-style lesson and breaks down which parts can be transformed into a multimedia project. Renaldo then guides educators through rewriting lesson plans and goals, creating video and audio assets, publishing the project online, and incorporating the new multimedia curriculum into the classroom.
