This lesson had both a meaningful and very relative purpose. The objective to educate on adequate systems for different types of people is a great motivator. This lesson is very open as teaching methods could vary from in class to online. I think it is a very flexible yet structured lesson with great technology integration in online environments like Moodle or Glogster.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson will address many aspects of computer systems, this is wonderful as it would really educate a learner how a system works, both from the hardware to communicating with the software, and applying purpose depending on the user’s objectives.

Being a Technology Support Specialist myself, I like the fact that the lesson is a specific goal oriented and that it involves strategies that are student-led. The technology used in the plan covers a fairly wide range of tools from web based discussion forum, to hands-on tangible activities on hardware. The application of UDL principle of Expression is found in the final output on Glogster.

Technical Remarks:

PDF file easily accessible and readable on any platform.
