It is important that I adhere to the instructions below:

After you have read through Chapters 6 & 7 in the Traditional Media Unit, you will see that the majority of material in the chapters discusses “types” of media in the classroom. Remember, these concepts are universal whether we are talking about the traditional K-12 classroom, community college, higher cation, or training and development.

If this was a face-to-face class, the best way to teach these types of skills would be through demonstration and experimentation. We call this “experiential learning”. I have provided a couple of references to help you understand this concept. However, in an online learning environment, it is rather difficult to ‘demonstrate’ how to use a white board.

Your task for this module is to write a research paper (4-5 pages in length) on how to teach experiential learning type skills ??” like those listed in the textbook — in an online learning environment. Additionally, think about the way you would assess and evaluate your students to determine whether they learned the material or not. You will need to refer back to the Visual Design Principles discussed in Chapter 4. Also, Chapters 1 & 3 would provide you will great resources on how media can support learning. You will need to do some research on this subject. To complete your research, you will need to review some articles through the Joyner library. They have a great tutorial, Seven Step Guide to Library Research — http://www.ecu..jproxy.lib.ecu./cs-lib/Reference/sevensteps.cfm

To begin your research:

? Go to the ECU Website
? Click: Libraries and Collections
? Click: J. Y. Joyner Library
? Click: Electronic Database List
? One the right-hand side of your screen, you will see a box with several popular journals
? Click: Academic Search Premier
? At the Search screen, start looking for journal articles that fit your area of research
? Continue on with your search

Another great source: Google Scholar

Note ??” Wikipedia is NOT considered a scholarly source, so you don’t want to use it for this type of paper.

A few criteria are listed below:

? 4-5 pages in length (excluding title and reference page)
? Minimum 3 outside references
? Font ??” Times New Roman (12 point)
? Double-space your document
? Make sure the sections within the document are titled
? Title page
? Reference page
? Include page numbers

After you have completed the assignment, upload it into the Digital Dropbox for grading. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at: .
