  1. Scaffolding PIDP 3250 Instructional Strategies Digital Project Presented By Johnson Yu

  2. What is Scaffolding? • A technique that provides students with temporary support needed to complete complex learning tasks on their own • Examples of support can be clues, prompts, reminders, hints, explanations, examples and many others • As learners develop the skills needed to achieve or master learning tasks, these supports are gradually removed and the responsibility of learning shifts from instructor to student

  3. Examples of Scaffolding in a Culinary Class • Demonstrate the task while students observe and are able to inquire about procedures • Talk through the thought processes you would engage as you carry out the task

  4. Examples of Scaffolding in a Culinary Class • Have students go through process and guide where necessary showing students where mistakes are likely to occur

  5. Examples of Scaffolding in a Culinary Class • Once students understand and can carry out tasks, assign topics relating to the task and discuss in groups

  6. Examples of Discussion Topics

  7. Role of the Educator • Mentoring and being a role model • Facilitator of knowledge • To give immediate support • Encourage hands-on learning

  8. Role of Learner • Takes ownership of the learning process • To imitate tasks while understanding steps being taken with a hands on approach • Take learning further to question procedures with peers and receive feedback

  9. Pros Of Scaffolding • Provides learners with immediate support for tasks that is otherwise unachievable on their own • Challenges students through deep learning and discovery • Motivates learners to become better students(Learning how to learn) • Increases likelihood to progress in instructional objectives

  10. Cons of Scaffolding • Planning and implementing can be time consuming • Knowing when to remove scaffolds so the learner does not rely too heavily on support given • Some see it as ‘coddling’ students • Not knowing students well enough to provide proper scaffolds for assignments

  11. Scaffolding within Apprenticeship and in The Classroom
