“The Motor System: Quiz Game”
The Motor System: Quiz Game
Jan 12, 2012
- This is a 2003 PowerPoint slide show that is interactive and designed in a fashion similar to the TV show “Jeopardy”. Its focus is on various aspects of the motor system. Primary use would be an undergraduate pre-healthcare professional students during or after completion of anatomy and physiology course with a section specifically on motor function.
- Type of Material:
- The Motor System: Quiz Game is set up as a drill and practice for information related to the motor control system.
- Recommended Uses:
- The Motor System: Quiz Game would be a great reusable learning object to provide to students studying the subject of the motor system or neuroanatomy as it would provide a great fun way to review the concepts. It could be used to test knowledge in a fun and competitive way either in the classroom (such as with teams) or outside of the classroom.
- Technical Requirements:
- Technical requirements include a computer with Internet access to download the PowerPoint reader file. No technical skills are required.
- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- The learning goals are not stated. The implied learning goals are for the learner to demonstrate knowledge of terminology and definitions associated with the neurological motor systems; specifically the dorsolateral motor system, ventromedial motor system, motor neurons, and motor control centers.
- Target Student Population:
- The Motor System: Quiz Game is particularly suited for students taking a neurology, neuroanatomy or kinesiology courses in the allied health field. It is targeted to the undergraduate college student.
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- Prerequisite knowledge is beginning to moderate knowledge of terminology and function of the human neurological motor system.
- The slide show is interactive and allows students to choose basic subject matter in a “Jeopardy” game show format. The design is easy to navigate and immediate feedback is available.
- There is an assumption of a baseline knowledge of terminology, anatomy, physiology, and some pathophysiology of the neurological aspects of the motor system. No baseline knowledge is provided prior to engaging in the slide show.
- The potential effectiveness attributes are:
• Much information can be covered in a relatively short time.
• Can interact with the PowerPoint show alone, with other people, or in teams
- Concerns regarding potential effectiveness are:
• No time limit is built in for any question, although this may not really be a problem.
• There is an expectation/assumption that the user has some fairly detailed knowledge of terminology and definitions. No terminology or definition is provided in the PowerPoint show.
- • The test/game itself is extremely easy to use.
• It is in an interactive format.
• The content is good.
• It is self-contained, so no instructions are necessary.
• The Jeopardy television show format is one that is familiar to many students.
- • No actual instructions for use were provided; it is assumed that the player is familiar with the game show Jeopardy.
- Other Issues and Comments:
- Although some fairly detailed baseline knowledge is necessary for successful completion of the PowerPoint show, it can be used as a learning tool and can also be used as a tool to reinforce learning.
