  1. Bridges eLearning Module- Chris BartlesEDU624 Dr. Ash and Dr. Smith Storyboards

  2. Lesson Objectives • By the end of this eLearning module, students will be able to… • identify the main parts of a bridge. • classify bridges based on their type. • predict the type of bridge that will be best suited for a specific task. • test the effectiveness of different bridge types at performing a specific task. • construct a digital bridge to complete a specific task.

  3. Slide # 1 Bridge Content Pretest Onscreen Content This will be an interactive, flash-based pretest that will assess what students already know about bridges. Since students have already (in 6th or 7th grade) completed a unit on bridges in Design and Engineering, students will have differing amounts of prior knowledge. Based on the results of the pretest, students will progress through the eLearning module via differing paths. The quiz will be created using the Quiz Builder 2 software made by Tandia, and final edits will be completed using Adobe Flash Professional CS6. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script Since students will be coming into this module with different amounts of prior knowledge and readiness level, a pretest will sort the students into a lesson path that is appropriate for the knowledge and readiness of the student. This will ensure that all students are being adequately challenged and will get the most out of the module. Interactivity / Navigation Special Education and ELL (English Language Learners) who are progressing through the module will be completing modified (although similar) work. They will be sent to Slide 2. Students who receive a score between 0 and 15 on the pretest will be sent to Slide 12 and those scoring 16 through 20 will proceed to Slide 16. A link will be shown to the students after they receive their score on the pretest. It will be a button that says “click here to continue,” and will direct the students appropriately.

  4. Slide # 2 Modified vocabulary Onscreen Content Each of the ten vocabulary words associated with the bridges lesson will be presented in the same fashion as shown at right. The vocab word will be shown, a definition will be given, an example will be provided and a picture will be drawn. There will also be audio accompanying the animated writing/drawing. This will provide these students with several different forms of exposure to the vocabulary word, which should help them learn the words more effectively. Detailed Script Before the students can learn about bridges, it is important that they understand the vocabulary associated with the lesson. The vocabulary will be presented in an animated fashion and will proceed slowly through the ten vocabulary words, giving students enough time to use this information to fill in the packet that they will be given to go along with this module. Interactivity / Navigation After viewing the animation about vocabulary, the last screen will contain a “click here to continue” box that will move the students to Slide 3.

  5. Slide # 3 Modified Beam Bridge Content Onscreen Content This will be a brief, content-filled animation about Beam Bridges. This will include the parts of the Beam Bridge, when the Beam Bridge is used and will provide several examples of Beam Bridges in today’s world. This will also discuss the pros and cons of this bridge type. The animation will be created with the Doceri Remote iPad app, and will include simple drawings (shown at right) as well as pictures of modern Beam Bridges. Detailed Script The students will be viewing an animation about Beam Bridges. The animation, containing images, text, drawings and audio, will show the students the different parts of Beam Bridges as well as when this type of bridge is used. The content has been modified for these students to allow them to be successful while still meeting the objectives of the lesson. In order for students to make an educated choice about building a digital bridge, it is important that they have learned about the major types of bridges that are used today. Interactivity / Navigation After viewing the animation about Beam Bridges, the last screen will contain a “click here to continue” box that will move the students to Slide 4.

  6. Slide # 4 Modified Truss Bridge content Onscreen Content This will be a brief, content-filled animation about Truss Bridges. This will include the parts of the Truss Bridge, when the Truss Bridge is used and will provide several examples of Truss Bridges in today’s world. This will also discuss the pros and cons of this bridge type. The animation will be created with the Doceri Remote iPad app, and will include simple drawings (shown at right) as well as pictures of modern Truss Bridges. Detailed Script The students will be viewing an animation about Truss Bridges. The animation, containing images, text, drawings and audio, will show the students the different parts of Truss Bridges as well as when this type of bridge is used. The content has been modified for these students to allow them to be successful while still meeting the objectives of the lesson.

Interactivity / Navigation After viewing the animation about Truss Bridges, the last screen will contain a “click here to continue” box that will move the students to Slide 5.

  7. Slide # 5 Modified Suspension Bridge content Onscreen Content This will be a brief, content-filled animation about Suspension Bridges. This will include the parts of the Suspension Bridge, when the Suspension Bridge is used and will provide several examples of Suspension Bridges in today’s world. This will also discuss the pros and cons of this bridge type. The animation will be created with the Doceri Remote iPad app, and will include simple drawings (shown at right) as well as pictures of modern Suspension Bridges. Detailed Script The students will be viewing an animation about Suspension Bridges. The animation, containing images, text, drawings and audio, will show the students the different parts of Suspension Bridges as well as when this type of bridge is used. The content has been modified for these students to allow them to be successful while still meeting the objectives of the lesson. In order for students to make an educated choice about building a digital bridge, it is important that they have learned about the major types of bridges that are used today. Interactivity / Navigation After viewing the animation about Suspension Bridges, the last screen will contain a “click here to continue” box that will move the students to Slide 6.

  8. Slide # 6 Modified Vocabulary Activity Onscreen Content This will be a review of the vocabulary, after the students have had a chance to view how the words are used (the vocabulary is used throughout the animations about the types of bridges). Students will be provided with multiple choices of vocab words or definitions. They will also be shown the picture that was used to teach the vocabulary in the beginning of the lesson. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script Students participating in this portion of the lesson will be demonstrating their knowledge/understanding of the vocabulary. Since vocabulary is very important to understanding, especially for struggling learners, it is crucial for students to be familiar with the vocabulary. This will be a multiple choice quiz-like activity where students will match up the ten vocabulary with their correct definitions. Each example will have a picture demonstrating the word or definition. Students able to complete this (70% or above) will be able to continue the lesson, while those unable to do so will be provided with the chance to practice the vocabulary more. Interactivity / Navigation Students who struggle with the vocabulary (receive a score below 7 out of 10) will be sent to Slide 7, which will be a review of the vocabulary. A link will be provided, as well as a file upload box with a “click to upload and continue” button. Students receiving a 7 out of 10 or above will be sent to Slide 8, where they will be asked to identify types and parts of bridges.

  9. Slide # 7 Modified Vocabulary Review Onscreen Content Students who still need some additional assistance with the Bridge Unit vocabulary will be given the link to a set of Flash Cards that will help them review the vocabulary. After they have completed the flash card activity (practiced through the cards twice), students will return to the Vocab Matching Quiz. Students will need to take two screenshots showing that they have completed this activity twice. Upon submitting them, they will be returned to the Vocab Quiz. Detailed Script Students participating in this portion of the lesson will be practicing with the vocabulary. Since vocabulary is very important to understanding, especially for struggling learners, it is crucial for students to be familiar with the vocabulary. Flash cards are a great way of studying vocabulary, and these flash cards have been created using the same vocabulary terms and definitions that the students were exposed to earlier in the lesson. Interactivity / Navigation Once students have completed the vocabulary review, they will be sent back to Slide 6 to demonstrate their learning. On the last page of the Quiz from Slide 6, there will be a file-upload box with a click to upload and continue button. Students will upload their screenshots and retake the quiz.

  10. Slide # 8 Modified Parts of Bridges Game Onscreen Content Students will be asked to identify the parts of specific bridges. Each type of bridge will appear on an individual page, and the students will be asked to identify specific parts of the bridge by clicking on the correct area of the picture. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script In order to assess whether or not students met the objectives related to identifying parts of bridges/types of bridges, students will need to demonstrate that they can complete these tasks. This quiz game is designed to have students look at pictures of bridges and identify either parts of the bridge (shown above) or types of bridges. Students will be asked 10 questions. Interactivity / Navigation Students who correctly identify 80% of the bridge parts will be sent to Slide 9 by clicking on a box that says “Please click here to continue!” Students who do not correctly identify at least 80% of the bridge parts will be sent back to Slide 3 to review the parts of the bridges by clicking on a “Please click here to continue” box.

  11. Slide # 9 Modified Bridges “Test” Onscreen Content This will be an interactive, flash-based test that will assess what students have learned about bridges. Types of questions will include multiple choice, matching (drag/drop), completion and “click-map” (students are shown a picture and asked to click on a specific area to answer the question). Questions will be simplified based on the content provided in the above portion of the lesson. A score of 70% is required to proceed; students not meeting this goal will be directed back to parts of the lesson for review. Based on their score above 70%, students will be completing an interactive, bridge building activity to demonstrate their learning. The test will be created using the Quiz Builder 2 software made by Tandia, and final edits will be completed using Adobe Flash Professional CS6. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script This is a final assessment for the students. In order to assess whether or not the students met the objectives of the lesson, data will need to be gathered and analyzed. Since the final objective (where students will be asked to construct a digital bridge) incorporates all of the other objectives and will function as a summative assessment in conjunction with this test, a score of 70% is required to proceed. Interactivity / Navigation If students do not pass the test (70%), they will be sent back to Slide 2 to review the content of the lesson. Students who received a score above 70% on the test will be sent to Slide 10 to apply what they learned about bridges to the Cargo Bridge Building Game.

  12. Slide # 10 Cargo Bridge Game Onscreen Content Students who are completing this portion of the lesson will be applying what they learned about bridges to a simplified bridge-building game. The game, although simplified, still uses real physics and will allow students to demonstrate what they learned about bridges from this eLearning module. Students will be asked to complete the first five levels, save screenshots of each level-completion screen (shown at right) and submit the five screenshots to finish the module. Detailed Script Many bridge building simulations are extremely involved and difficult for students to understand. This game provides these students, who might be overwhelmed with a more complex bridge building simulation, with a way of demonstrating what they learned about bridge design. Since the game uses real physics, and only correctly designed bridges will allow the students to progress through the game, seeing submitted screenshots of each completed level will allow the instructor to assess whether or not students can apply their learning. Interactivity / Navigation This is the end of the eLearning module for those students who completed the Special Education and ELL modified version of the lesson.

  13. Slide # 11 Grade-Level vocabulary Onscreen Content Each of the ten vocabulary words associated with the bridges lesson will be presented in the same fashion as shown. The vocab word will be shown, a definition will be given and a picture will be drawn. There will also be audio accompanying the animated writing/drawing. This will provide these students with several different forms of exposure to the vocabulary word, which should help them learn the words more effectively. An example of the vocabulary word will be provided in the audio, but will not be written out for the students. Detailed Script Before the students can learn about bridges, it is important that they understand the vocabulary associated with the lesson. The vocabulary will be presented in an animated fashion and will proceed slowly through the ten vocabulary words, giving students enough time to use this information to jot down notes as they proceed through the module. Interactivity / Navigation After viewing the animation about vocabulary, the last screen will contain a “click here to continue” box that will move the students to Slide 12.

  21. Slide # 19 Non-modified Vocabulary Quiz “Game” Onscreen Content This will be a review of the vocabulary, after the students have had a chance to view how the words are used (the vocabulary is used throughout the animations about the types of bridges). Students will be provided with a matching activity that includes all of the vocabulary words and their definitions. They will be asked to “Drag and drop” the vocabulary words with the correct definitions. Detailed Script Students participating in this portion of the lesson will be demonstrating their knowledge/understanding of the vocabulary. Since vocabulary is very important to understanding, it is crucial for students to be familiar with the vocabulary. This will be a Drag and Drop activity where students will match up the ten vocabulary with their correct definitions. Students able to complete this (above 70%) will be able to continue the lesson, while those unable to do so will be provided with the chance to practice the vocabulary more. Interactivity / Navigation Students not receiving a 70% on the vocab matching quiz will be provided with a link to practice the vocabulary on Slide 20. . A link will be provided, as well as a file upload box with a “click to upload and continue” button. Students who received a 70% or higher will be provided with a link to the Parts of a Bridge Game on Slide 21.

  22. Slide # 20 Non-modified Vocabulary Review Onscreen Content Students who still need some additional assistance with the Bridge Unit vocabulary will be given the link to a set of Flash Cards that will help them review the vocabulary. However, students will be encourages to use some of the other activities provided on the Study Stack page (Vocab Test, Fill-In-The-Blank, Crossword Puzzle and “Chopped” activities shown at right) to practice the vocabulary. They will be asked to complete two different activities and submit screenshots of the completed activities. After they have submitted these images, students will be directed back to the Vocab Matching Quiz. Detailed Script Students participating in this portion of the lesson will be practicing with the vocabulary. Since vocabulary is very important to understanding, it is crucial for students to be familiar with the vocabulary. The Study Stack website provides several different vocabulary practice activities. By allowing students the choice in whichever study material they would like to use, students will be more motivated to complete this portion of the lesson. All of the activities available on Study Stack have been created using the same vocabulary terms and definitions that the students were exposed to earlier in the lesson. Interactivity / Navigation Once students have completed the vocabulary review, they will be sent back to Slide 19 to demonstrate their learning. On the last page of the Quiz from Slide 19, there will be a file-upload box with a click to upload and continue button. Students will upload their screenshots and retake the quiz.

  23. Slide # 21 Non-modified parts of bridge matching game Onscreen Content Students will be asked to identify the parts of specific bridges. Each type of bridge will appear on the same image, and the students will be asked to identify specific parts of the bridge by clicking on the correct area. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script In order to assess whether or not students met the objectives related to identifying parts of bridges/types of bridges, students will need to demonstrate that they can complete these tasks. This quiz game is designed to have students look at pictures of bridges and identify either parts of a bridge, types of bridges or a combination of the two (shown above). Students will be asked 10 questions (randomly selected out of twenty possible questions). Interactivity / Navigation Students who correctly identify 80% of the bridge parts will be sent to Slide 12 by clicking on a box that says “Please click here to continue”. (Students will be sent here regardless on their score on the pretest and what path they proceeded through the lesson initially.) Students who do not correctly identify at least 80% of the bridge parts will be sent back to Slide 3 to review the parts of the bridges by clicking on a “Please click here to continue” box.

  24. Slide # 22 Non-modified Bridges “test” Onscreen Content This will be an interactive, flash-based test that will assess what students have learned about bridges. Types of questions will include multiple choice, matching (drag/drop), completion and “click-map” (students are shown a picture and asked to click on a specific area to answer the question). Based on the results of the test, students will proceed through the end of the lesson differently. A score of 70% is required to proceed; students not meeting this goal will be directed back to parts of the lesson for review. Based on their score above 70%, students will be completing different interactive, bridge building activities to demonstrate their learning. The test will be created using the Quiz Builder 2 software made by Tandia, and final edits will be completed using Adobe Flash Professional CS6. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script This is a final assessment for the students. In order to assess whether or not the students met the objectives of the lesson, data will need to be gathered and analyzed. Since the final objective (where students will be asked to construct a digital bridge) incorporates all of the other objectives and will function as a summative assessment in conjunction with this test, a score of 70% is required to proceed. Higher scores will allow the students to complete different bridge building activities Interactivity / Navigation If students do not pass the test (70%), they will be sent back to Slide 11 to review the content of the lesson. This will occur regardless of which path the students first proceeded through the lesson. Students who received a score between 70% and 79% on the test will be sent to Slide 23 to apply what they learned about bridges to the FWG Bridge Building Game. Students who received a score between 80% and 89% on the test will be sent to Slide 24 to apply what they learned about bridges to a simple scenario using the “Bridge It” software. Students who received a score above 89% on the test will be sent to Slide 25 to apply what they learned about bridges to a complex scenario using the “Bridge It” software.

  25. Slide # 23 FWG Bridge building game Onscreen Content Students who are completing this portion of the lesson will be applying what they learned about bridges to a bridge-building game. The game, uses real physics and will allow students to demonstrate what they learned about bridges from this eLearning module. Students will be asked to complete the first level (possible solutions shown at right), save a screenshot of the level-completion screen and submit the screenshot to finish the module. Detailed Script Many bridge building simulations are extremely involved and difficult for students to understand. This game provides these students, who might be overwhelmed with a more complex bridge building simulation, with a way of demonstrating what they learned about bridge design. This game is slightly more difficult than the Cargo Bridge Game presented in Slide 11. Since the game uses real physics, and only correctly designed bridges will allow the students to complete the level, seeing submitted screenshots of the completed level will allow the instructor to assess whether or not students can apply their learning. Interactivity / Navigation This is the end of the eLearning module for those students who were sent to complete the FWG Bridge Building Game.

  26. Slide # 24 “Bridge It” software scenario 1 Onscreen Content Students who are completing this portion of the lesson will be applying what they learned about bridges to a bridge-building simulation. The students will be provided with a scenario save file that they will open with the “Bridge It” bridge building simulator. The game uses real physics and will allow students to demonstrate what they learned about bridges from this eLearning module. Students will be asked to design and “build” a bridge that will carry a train across the canyon (possible solution shown at right), save a copy of the bridge and submit the save file to finish the module. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script Bridge It is a full bridge building simulation program. Instructions will be provided to students if they are completing this segment of the lesson. The overall program is similar to one that students at WJJMS have used before in their Design and Engineering classes, so they should be relatively familiar with the functionality. This specific scenario has several different possible solutions, so this will be easier than the scenario detailed below. Students will build and test their bridge in the program and submit the saved Bridge It file. This will allow the teacher to view and test their created bridge, ensuring that the students completed the objectives of the lesson. Interactivity / Navigation This is the end of the eLearning module for those students who were asked to complete the first “Bridge It” scenario.

  27. Slide # 25 “Bridge It” software scenario 2 Onscreen Content Students who are completing this portion of the lesson will be applying what they learned about bridges to a bridge-building simulation. The students will be provided with a scenario save file that they will open with the “Bridge It” bridge building simulator. The game uses real physics and will allow students to demonstrate what they learned about bridges from this eLearning module. Students will be asked to design and “build” a bridge that will carry a daily-traffic load of between 15,000 and 20,000 cars (a third of the daily traffic of the Golden Gate bridge) across the river(possible solution shown at right), save a copy of the bridge and submit the save file to finish the module. Place suggested photo or multimedia here; If no media is available, describe what it should be. Detailed Script Bridge It is a full bridge building simulation program. Instructions will be provided to students if they are completing this segment of the lesson. The overall program is similar to one that students at WJJMS have used before in their Design and Engineering classes, so they should be relatively familiar with the functionality. This specific scenario has only a few different possible solutions, making it more complicated than the scenario detailed above. Also, for this scenario, students will have a limited budget to use for building their bridge. Students will build and test their bridge in the program and submit the saved Bridge It file. This will allow the teacher to view and test their created bridge, ensuring that the students completed the objectives of the lesson. Interactivity / Navigation This is the end of the eLearning module for those students who were asked to complete the second “Bridge It” scenario.
