A very authentic and rewarding activity for the proposed learner audience. The learners will be driven by the reward at the end of the activity.

This is very much independent study and learning on behalf of the learner and a lot of instructional strategies can come into play. Brainstorming, mind mapping and questioning techniques. In fact the scope of the activity is so broad that a number of instructional strategies could surface throughout.

If ever there is a lesson with a real world need it is this one. Bravo!

Our faculty members use most of the real-world activities that were listed in the plan. What inspired me most was when I was able to integrate Dr. Merrill's concepts and Yelon's chart in the instructional design. The NETS-S and METS-S evaluations were very thought-provoking. It helped me realize the significant role of technology in teaching and learning.
