My first Google Hangout w/ @Center_Ed: Using Google Drive

I just participated in my very first Google Hangout with @Center_Ed.  Although I loved being able share this active teaching strategy, what was even more fun for me was using this new tool!!!  I had never used Google Hangouts and now I have a fun new tool to use and share with others.  I think I know a new Professional Development workshop for Palomar College!

Here is the video of our Hangout, Enjoy!


Lesson planning… steps to success

I recently learned about Gagne’s 9 Events of Instruction.

Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction are based on cognitive learning theories and the sequence in which we process information. Gagne, Wager, Golas, and Keller (2005) define instruction “as a set of events external to the learner designed to support the internal processes of learning. The events of instruction are designed to activate the processes of information processing, or at least to parallel their occurrence, and support the process” (p. 194). This is the basis for the linear path of the 9 events of instruction which are in order starting with:

  1. gaining attention
  2. stating objectives
  3. recalling previous learning
  4. presenting the content/material
  5. providing or facilitating learning
  6. eliciting performance
  7. giving feedback about the performance
  8. assessing the performance
  9. focusing on retention and transfer of knowledge

I am a very big fan of infographics and found an awesome site with infographics for each of the 9 events of instruction:
