educational objects definition
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
Educational Objects: Classes
  • exploratory modules
  • visual components
  • assessment tools
  • virtual experiences
  • electronic documents
educational objects exploratory modules
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 visual components
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 assessment tools
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 tools1
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
Educational Objects: Virtual Experiences
  • experience places, events and processes
  • learner directed
  • non-linear
  • multiple-layers of information
  • self-contained
  • variable complexity
educational objects virtual experiences1
Educational Objects: Virtual Experiences
  • variety of functions:
    • field trips
    • excursions
    • process investigations
    • regional tours
    • field projects
    • Earth system – human interactions
    • site visits
educational objects electronic documents
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 documents2
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
summary
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
