Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Assignment
Supporting the Needs of All Learners
Reflecting on your personal experience, learning in prior courses, and our Week Two Discussion, briefly discuss and support your understanding of the importance of designing to support the needs of all learners. Additionally, select then redesign a prior MATLT activity to demonstrate your attainment of Program Learning Outcome 3 to “design learning opportunities that apply technology-enhanced instructional strategies to support the needs of all learners”. The redesign should demonstrate use of instructional design principles and theory and explain your choice of principles and theories. Finally, include a discussion of the design and implementation challenges experienced during the redesign and how they were overcome.
Review the Rubric for this Assignment to understand the criteria on which you will be evaluated. Note that because the length of your redesigned activities will likely vary greatly, no specific length requirement exists for this assignment. However, as a general guideline, the discussion and support of how instructional design principles and theory influence designs to support the needs of all learners would reasonable be a page and the reflection on design and implementation challenges would reasonably be half a page.
Writing Tips! For all course assignments, write in a formal tone showing your best academic writing ability. Additionally, remember to include a succinct organizing introduction and succinct conclusion to the assignment paper. For example, for this assignment, you might start (after the title page) by restating the assignment instructions above into a series of statements for your introduction (tell the reader what you’ll present). Then, include your discussion of supporting the needs of all learners, your redesigned lesson, and the reflection discussion about your challenges. Finally, conclude with a succinct summary of the contents of your paper (tell the reader what you’ve said in summary/reword the introduction), ending with a References page. Additionally, remember to make use of APA headings to signify transitions among sections of your assignment.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
