At the end of my instructional video, a student will be able to
- Select the correct thread and needle
- Thread a needle- tie a knot in the thread
- Sew on a button
- Finish off the sewing correctly
- Learn about more advance techniques, should they choose to
- The student will need to understand the terms used to describe the necessary tools
- The student will also need to know how to use a web based interface to research an activity
- The student will need some dexterity
- A desire to complete the task
- Identify and compile the tools necessary
- Ensure about 10 – 15 minutes of uninterrupted time
- Complete feedback survey
- Use links to find out more advanced techniques, optional
- I am assuming that my learners do not currently know how to sew, thread a needle or sew on a button.
- I am assuming that they that they are familiar with the required tools, (thread, needle, button, dress making scissors, fabric, nail varnish (optional).
- I am also assuming that my students are familiar with a web based interface.
- I have included an optional feedback survey to assess the learning.
Learners will not view this page as it does not form part of the exercise. Learners will be directed to a separate, self contained page.
1. Gain attention
I used an attractive image and a play on words. The image I used is copyright free. I have also included a slightly humorous poll to start things off.
2. Describe the goal
I have explained what I plan to show the students.
3. Stimulate recall of prior knowledge
I used simple tools that may have been used at school or would be readily available in most households.
4. Present the material to be learned
I outlined the tools necessary to complete the task.
5. Provide guidance for learning
I explain each step and use large props initially to explain the task.
6. Elicit performance “practice”
The learner has learned a simple task that will make life easier in general.
7. Provide informative feedback
The learners results should equal what I have shown in the video. The button should be secure as demonstrated.
8. Assess performance test
At the end of the lesson, the learner should be able to thread a needle and sew on a button.
9. Enhance retention and transfer
I have included links to other YouTube videos for more information and also included a learner poll for more feedback.
My own learner reflection is documented here. This will form part of my presentation to the rest of the students.
