  • Title

UI prototype of the template with form field sizes: https://lemill.org/trac/attachment/ticket/67/lesson_plan_template.png

UI prototype in PDF format (for copying texts): https://lemill.org/trac/attachment/ticket/67/lesson_plan_template.pdf

Lesson plan template has an about page (just like web page, presentation, exercise and PILOT templates have). It is not important if about page contains “subject area” and “target group” fields or not -- choose this option that is easier to do.

Lesson plans are displayed in a same way as references: field name in bold text, colon, line break, text.

Content, methods and tools are processed and displayed in the following way:

  1. Entered text is divided to paragraphs, each paragraph is going to be displayed as one item in a bulleted list.
  2. URL’s are displayed as links, URL is used as link text
  3. URL’s to LeMill resources are displayed so that actual titles are used as link text

We must think carefully which fields we should have in that template. Otherwise I agree that we need this template and I tend to think that it should be in the methods section (#1729).

  • Owner changed from anonymous to hans
  • Priority changed from critical to blocker
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Milestone set to 2.5

After discussion with Teemu we decided that this template will be in the content section. I will be responsible for designing the template. When I have decided about all the fields and Teemu has agreed with my proposal, then I will create enhancement ticket for the developers.

I compared some lesson plan templates found from the web and discussed it with one of our active users and teacher trainers in Estonia. The comparison can be found in: https://lemill.org/trac/attachment/ticket/67/lesson_plan_template_fields.png

As a result we propose that lesson plan template should contain the following fields:

  • Lesson topic / theme
  • Goals and objectives
  • Description of the lesson
  • Content
  • Methods
  • Tools
  • Evaluation / assesment
  • Teacher reflections

In addition we will have all the same fields that other learning resource templates have (title on the first page and subject area, target group, tags, language, etc on the second page).

Content / Methods / Tools should be linked to resources in LeMill. I think that making some browsing interface to attach resources to these fields is too complicated task. It will anyway become not very userfriendly. I propose that these fields should be textareas where people could copy-paste the URL's of LeMill resources. Copy-pasting a line of code is something that teachers already understand. It's similar to using embed-code from YouTube?. If some resource link is not correctly copied and becomes broken, then other users can fix that.

When discussing the template with Tarmo and Jukka we got an idea that it should be possible to add links also to resources outside LeMill.

Open question 1: should we show <title> or <h1> instead of URL?

Open question 2: In school content could be also a textbook or some other printed resource. It means that people will write into content box something elso than URL's. How to support that?

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by hans

Answer 1: getting <h1> or <title> for external web pages is too slow and problematic. We should just show the URL's for external web pages.

Answer 2: Printed resources should be also entered one by line. We will display them in the same list with URL's and LeMill resources.

Original story text that Martin wrote:

Replying to martin:

Teacher have find some interesting materials from toolbox. He fields, that just presenting materials in classroom is not enough. He makes an other search and gets lot of pedagogical templates how to design lesson. He chooses simple lesson structure (list, that contains lesson items like: start of lesson, objectives of lesson, remembering previous materials, presentation of new materials, supervisioning of individual work, implementation of knowledges, collecting feedback, Evaluation and management of learning processes). He drags learning resources from list of query result in to presentation field in lesson structure, but other fields are empty and he has to full fill them by himself or delete them if he finds, that those parts are not important in that lesson.
