What is an online learning activities that effectively applies the principles of personalization, pre-training, or segmenting and an online learning activity that you think does not effectively apply the principles?I found a great web site from Scholastic.com that is designed for oral segmenting. In this activity (found in the link below), students listen to a narrator read a word. Then the students are given a choice of three words below the picture of the word. They must then choose the word that has the same middle sound. The example that I viewed provided a picture of a house, and the narrator clearly and slowly pronounced every syllable of the word. Then I was given three words to chose from that had the same middle sound: proud, hose, and shoot. Once I chose the correct word and dragged it to the chosen place on the interactive face board, I was giving high praise for a job well done. This is a great example of segmentation because it broke down the information needed to complete the task in an understandable way, it allowed for learning to take place because it assisted the student in every phase of the task, it gave examples through spoken words and provided very colorful graphics, that combined, was able to retain attention of the student, and it eased the stress levels of the students by not overwhelming them and going slowly at their pace. This source can also be personalized to assist the instructor with students learning at a distance because it incorporates vocabulary into the lesson which can also be incorporated into the classroom/e-classroom activity of the week, and it used information that directly ties to the learner such as providing pictures of houses which a young learner can easily identify with.This can also be used in a pre-training phase of classroom learning because it introduces concepts and vocabulary to students, it provides instructions for them to learn and practice a new concept, it tests the pre-knowledge of an individual learner by allowing them three choices and asking them to pick the correct one, and it helps the learner see bits and pieces of the learning as well as the whole concept once the correct answer is chosen. Segmentation: An interactive phonics readers activity. Found April 9, 2013:
http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/activity/segmentation-interactive-phonics-readers-activity-0The second source that I viewed, called Game Goo was just the opposite. Once logged into the source, students are given multiple choices to click on thrown together into one confusing bunch. If that was not bad enough, all of them talk in unison! So understand one specific activity was not happening because all of the links were talking at the same time. Overlooking this chaos, I logged into one counting activity. Once in, there was no way to stop the activity (in case I needed to) and the video cartoon was, to say the least, very annoying. I, of course understood what had to be done to complete the activity, but I doubt highly that a child would because it did not provide any instruction and the commands for participation were given in a confusing and rapid way. I was not impressed. This source does not apply to the principles of effective segmentation because it did not break down the information needed to complete the task in an understandable way, and it was confusing to understand and navigate which did not support learning. As well, it is so confusing to figure out that it would only adds to the stress level of a student who is struggling in this topic to begin with. The entire learning initiative was overwhelming and moved too rapidly for a young child to use. I do not see any way that this source could be personalized to fit into classroom learning. Well ,it could, but it would be a stretch! Because students cannot figure this one out, supporting this with classroom activities would be a waste of time. Students would learn in the classroom, of course, but the video lesson would not support classroom learning which is the point of personalization. Since student would struggle to use this source, there is no way to effectively judge what they know and do not know prior to this lesson. Without having the ability to test the pre-knowledge of an individual learner, this source is a poor choice to use for a pre-training activity.
