For many teachers, faculty, instructors, and novice instructional designers bringing the digital world to the classroom can pose problems. Finding, choosing and employing digital assets to use in one’s instruction is often a difficult and time-consuming endeavor, and building such assets can take even longer.
The rapidly growing number of development tools, digital assets, and a lack of familiarity with these makes starting one’s digital exploration a challenge at best.
This text overviews the world of instructional design and it’s applicability to the world of teaching in primary, secondary, post-secondary and adult learner environments. The common elements far outnumber the differences between the fields if instructional design and teaching. In fact, traditional means of planning for instruction are very similar to, but don’t quite mesh with, the principles and processes of instructional design. We carefully align this mismatch between the two worlds.
The text links to hundreds of websites, articles, PowerPoints and template files that can be downloaded and used in one’s instruction. It links to hundreds of explanatory videos and step-by-step pages that overview the development tools that are profiled. It is also linked to 120 Flipboard magazines, into which the most recent online articles, audio and video files, and websites are added on a daily basis to the current 30,000+ holdings.
And, finally, a digital module is built based on the development models, the principles of clean instructional design, and the workflows described in the text.
