At the end of each unit, DB participation is assessed based on level  of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. DBs  allow learners to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they  relate to course content. Because it is not possible to engage in  two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB are  accepted after the end of the unit. Learners must demonstrate an  appropriate depth of understanding of course content to receive credit  for having submitted substantive posts. Typically, this is achieved with  3–4 strong paragraphs for Main Posts and 2–3 strong paragraphs for  Response Posts.

Deliverable Specifics 

Part 1

When considering the instructional  strategies of chunking, framing, content mapping, advanced organizers,  and mnemonics, what Web 2.0/3.0 tools might you suggest being used to  enhance the strategy for your learners’ resources? Review the following  sites for additional help:  

Part 2

From the tools that you suggested in Part 1, which one do you  personally use the most? Share its benefits to you and your learners.  Why is it harder for an adult to use new technologies than it is for a  child? Does Internet accessibility widen or narrow the knowledge gap  between ethnic or economic groups within the United States? What about  access to highly portable network devices, such as tablets or cell  phones? How important are these tools in instructional design or  instructional delivery?

In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion  Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should  address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will  be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the  concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not  simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons  and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as  well as your position on the questions or comments.
