of Netscape Composer Site for Pre-service Teachers
The aim of this product was to redesign a unit designed
to teach pre-service teachers about using technology in
their classrooms. Additionally an instructional design
process report was developed.
|NLS Competency 1- The application of
knowledge about technology and the learning sciences
Description: Both the report as well as the redesign
process was a team effort.
Report about the instructional design process: Before
the Netscape Composer Site for teachers was redesigned our
team followed an instructional design process, which is described
in the report below. The report includes conducting an extensive
analysis of the learners, tasks related to the learner needs,
current instruction and environmental scan.
Redesign of Netscape Composer Site: We redesigned this
unit to be more authentic to the needs of pre-service teachers
at the University of Missouri - Columbia's College of Education.
The side helps pre-service teachers in the process of designing
a classroom web site for the first time, or simply brushing
up on his/her web development skills. Every lesson within
the Netscape Composer Site is focusing on specific teacher-centered
design and content issues. Additionally, throughout this site,
graphics are used to offer visual guidance, and multiple web
sites are used to identify both desirable and undesirable
characteristics of classroom web sites. This tutorial can
be used independently, or as part of a Professional Staff
Development experience. Assessments for both uses are provided
for the users.
