EDDL 5131Assignment 1 Creating a Multimedia Enhanced Lesson

My reasoning with creating this lesson was to use the information my adult learners already have from life experience and one semester in theory and practicum experience in hospital settings to encourage them to be creative in presenting information to their peers and change their approach in caregiving from a hospital-focus to a homecare focus. The safety concerns in the activity are some they may face in home caregiving and I want them to be able to think critically about their role and actions in that setting.

Malcolm Knowles states that adult learners take in information and process it differently.

  • Previous experience is used to create know meaning and encourages learning
  • The focus of learning changes to a problem-solving approach
  • Motivation and readiness to learn increases with maturity
  • Adult learners need to know why they are doing an activity and what they will learn from it or they will not engage in the experience

We will begin to work on this together and it will be due in 3 weeks.

Below is the lesson I in which I would like the students to engage.


Grading:    This is worth 30% of your final mark

EDDL 5131 Group Safety Assignment


Students will work in groups of no more than 4 and will open the web site for LTC which the instructor will provide. Working in small groups, they will develop a multimedia presentation to teach the rest of the class about a particular safety topic related to seniors living at home. All the necessary information is present on the Long Term Care (LTC) website and other sites I have included below. You will need to inform the instructor about which topic you pick.

The topics include:

  • safety in the kitchen
  • fire safety in the home
  • fall prevention in the home
  • preventing home support worker injuries
  • hoarding and clutter

Each group will present their topic to the rest of the class by way of a multimedia presentation. A marking guide will be provided for reference.

Powtoons are a fun way to learn

Filed under: animation,EDDL 5131,fun learning,powtoon @ 8:08 am

I think I tried to publish this before but I don’t think it worked.I published it to you-tube and I finally found it under powtoon and safety.

I think this kind of animated ‘cartoonish’ approach can capture the interest of some of the younger students.

Unfortunately, the sizing is not the best. I’m not sure how to do this.
