Essay Writing Assignment Help:

Task:

There are two parts to this assignment: Part A requires you to write a paper that examines the issues around the use of Learning Management Systems in an educational setting; Part B requires you to present and examine a number of selected classroom technologies that will support the achievement of learning outcomes from your chosen curriculum.

1. Learning outcome/s (400 words)part B Digital technology resourcesPart A: Student-Centred Learning and ICT Essay (1200 words)

The Digital Education Advisory Group for Australia (DEAG) produced a report in May 2013 titled “Beyond the classroom: A new digital education for young Australians in the 21st century.https://docs.education.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/deag_final_report.pdf This report contains a number of recommendations about the use of technology in schools.

The report states: “Principle 3. All learning should be student centred” (Digital Education Advisory Group, 2013, p. 27).

You are to produce a short essay that outlines the main ways that pedagogically sound ICT use can help classroom learning become more student-centred. You should draw on the AEDG report, your text book, as well as other relevant academic literature in your discussion, backing up your views with research-based evidence from the CSU Library journal database.

You are to describe a series of classes/lessons that form part of a unit of work, (approximately 1-2 weeks in total), and how you have used classroom technologies to meet the learning outcomes of your chosen curriculum document. This is not about lesson plans however.

You need to include:

  • The age/stage of the students that your classes are designed for
  • Which curriculum document you are using – include a hyperlink and reference
  • Which learning outcome/s you are addressing – include a hyperlink and reference
  • Describe what students will be doing using ICT in order to meet the learning outcomes – what product will they be able to show or demonstrate at the end of these classes?
  • What formative and summative assessment tasks will there be, and how do they meet the outcomes above?
  • What learning theory will you use to underpin this series of lessons?

You do not need to include detailed lesson plans for this unit of work, and present this section as well written paragraphs, not dot points. (See example in “Assessment Two Support”.)

2. Digital Technologies (1000 words)

Describe four digital technologies (software or apps) that you might use to support your series of classes. These technologies need to be specifically chosen to help you meet the learning outcome/s you have described above, and work in a BYOD (bring your own device) environment. They need to focus on students and the assessment tasksyou’ve outlined above, and must be technologies that students would use, not the teacher. To complete this task you will need to examine and evaluate the technology to determine its suitability to meet the lesson learning requirements.

You need to include:

  • The name of the technology and where it can be accessed/purchased (e.g. a URL)
  • How will students be using the technology in your classes? (Don’t include ‘passive’ tasks such as watching videos.)
  • An explanation of how the technology will help you to meet the learning outcomes – how will the students be using it, and what will they be producing.
  • Include relevant academic research that supports your approach throughout.

These need to be written in paragraph format (not dot-points) and be around 250 words each.

DO NOT USE THE FOLLOWING: YouTube/videos; PowerPoint/Prezi/Keynote or ‘presentation’ software; Word/Google Docs; Web Browsers; or data storage such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

You must use quality, academic references (from the CSU library database) to back up your approach, for example, you might find a research-based article on the use of web quests for learning to add academic rigour to your choice of web quests in your lessons
