Educational Objects: Definition

  • software for education, training or expertise transfer

  • characteristics:

    • discoverable

    • modular

    • interoperable

  • can be combined to create new learning applications


Educational Objects: Classes

  • exploratory modules

  • visual components

  • assessment tools

  • virtual experiences

  • electronic documents


Educational Objects: Exploratory Modules

  • explore process, concept or event

  • qualitative or quantitative

  • interactive with differing levels of user control and input

  • address variety of learning levels


Educational Objects: Exploratory Modules


Educational Objects: Visual Components

  • graphic representation of the world

    • documentary

    • imagined

  • illustrate time, motion and space

    • scope/scale/power

  • introduce students to regions/processes outside personnel experience


Educational Objects: Visual Components


Educational Objects: Assessment Tools

  • provide feedback to student & instructor

  • summative or formative

  • immediate learner feedback

  • access all levels of learning

  • employ multimedia

  • tools can be:

    • deployed at any point in a learning application

    • mixed and matched to create quizzes & exams

  • linked to other learning resources


Educational Objects: Assessment Tools

  • traditional

    • T/F, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, ordering, matching

  • electronic

    • drag and drop

    • hot spot

    • ConcepTests

    • Venn diagrams


Educational Objects: Virtual Experiences

  • experience places, events and processes

  • learner directed

  • non-linear

  • multiple-layers of information

  • self-contained

  • variable complexity


Educational Objects: Virtual Experiences

  • variety of functions:

    • field trips

    • excursions

    • process investigations

    • regional tours

    • field projects

    • Earth system – human interactions

    • site visits


Educational Objects: Virtual Experiences


Educational Objects: Electronic Documents

  • media-rich and interactive

  • address different learning styles

  • immediate feedback

  • non-linear and learner directed

  • employ: exploration, inquiry, observation

  • built-in assessment


Educational Objects: Electronic Documents


Educational Objects: Electronic Documents

  • types of electronic documents:

    • event descriptions

    • in-depth exercises

    • study guides

    • lecture notes

    • electronic textbooks

    • lab materials

      • activity

      • lab exercise

      • lab manual


Educational Objects: Secondary Objects

Summary

  • educational objects are standalone software “chunks”

  • reused and recombined to produce learning applications

  • two roles for educators

    • developers: creates primary objects

    • users: produce secondary objects

  • Earth science needs object dissemination method
