Developing Engaging Learning Experiences in Preservice Education
Sardone, Nancy B.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v92 n6 p235-245 2019
Opportunities to learn how to develop engaging learning experiences are vital for preservice teachers. This article describes an in-class modeling activity, provides assignment guidelines, and includes examples of candidates' completed tasks when developing technology-integrated instruction using Quick Response (QR) codes. The content of participants' (n = 75) tasks were analyzed for complexity following the SAMR model (Pnuentedura 2013). Most candidates enhanced instructional experiences (73%), while others transformed them (27%) by developing engaging collaborative experiences that culminated in students creating a product using technology tools. Observations revealed that candidates appreciated learning how QR codes could be used to make learning experiences more engaging. Candidates showed a willingness to use their own smart devices for learning purposes. Aligning appropriate curriculum content standards with assigned tasks was achieved by all participants.
