PROBLEM OF PRACTICE

Curriculum Design: Information Technology

Monique Belisle

University of Oregon, Spring 2012


My problem demonstrations in sewing class

My Problem: Demonstrations in sewing class

  • The logistics of having 26 students gather around a sewing machine to see, hear, and understand what I am doing is a nightmare.

  • I have to re-show the demo the next day for students who were absent, which wastes my time and takes time away from other students in the class.


Current practice

Current Practice

  • At the moment the only way to demonstrate threading and machine or new sewing technique is to have the students stand around and watch as I go through the steps.

  • To help with student focus and engagement I break the class into two and do the demo twice, which takes twice as long.

  • In doing this most students walk away understanding what to do, however there are always a few who missed something because they could not see!


Student absences

Student Absences…

  • When a students has missed the demonstration I have to show them one on one.

  • I have tried directing students to ask others to show them, however, important pieces of information are often missed.

  • In the end, I do a third demo and call out to any students who still have questions to come and watch.


Solutions

Solutions

  • As solutions to my problem I have decided to create

  • a video posted on teacher tube

  • step by step slide show on voice thread

  • a wiki


Teachertube

Teachertube

  • Student will be able to watch a demonstration of me threading the top of the sewing machines used in sewing class

  • A video was the most obvious solution and I wanted to try and compare it to the voice thread and wiki.

Voice thread

Voice thread

  • Sewing a closed seam sample

  • The voice thread will take students through the steps of sewing a basic seam sample

  • I like the idea of having still shots of all the steps

  • I will be easier for students to go at a slow pace

Problem of practice

Wiki

  • Sewing a dart

  • Students will be able to see pictures and step instructions

  • Students are invited to ask questions and add their own “tips” to the wiki.
