PROBLEM OF PRACTICE

Curriculum Design: Information Technology

Monique Belisle

University of Oregon, Spring 2012

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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

- 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.
