Selecting Learner Activities: Type, Amount, Sequence

Selecting Learner Activities: Type, Amount, Sequence

Another of the Teaching & Learning with Technology resources from Penn State, this site begins with the Chinese proverb, "If you tell me I will forget; If you show me I might remember; But if you involve me, I will learn." Guidelines that include suggested activities and the sequence of working steps of the activities in an instructional plan are given. Suggestions for activities include creating a portfolio, designing a blueprint, creating a product, planning a lesson, conducting a case study, and taking an observation field trip are given. A link to examples of these and more activities is provided. As with other topics from the Teaching and Learning with Technology site, links to other topics in the series are included.
