New Moodle Course Design - Romeo & Juliet

New Moodle Course Design - Romeo & Juliet | Professional learning | Scoop.it

This is an outline of the Moodle course design that we have been working on at Perins. In this case this is with Lauren Austen (www.twitter.com/austentatiously) in the English department.

 

The Moodle course is trying to promote a more inquiry based approach to learning and to encourage staff to develop resources that encourage personalisation.

 

As part of that we have introduced new icons roughly based on Blooms Taxonomy.

 

We have used the OneTopic format and have reduced 12 or so lessons into 4 main question areas. We have also tried to tie in opportunities to use Mahara and for students to check progress using Moodle Task Checker.

As-needed follow-up technology support after an introduction to new technology is vital to ascertain the inclusion of that technology into a teacher's repertoire.
