Technology in the Learning Environment

My Map

                With a lot of reflective thinking coupled with your creativity, you can design hand-outs that will truly work well to make the learning effective. You will see that preparing hand-outs is not just any paper work. When you produce high quality hand-outs and eventually try them out, you will discover that, indeed, paper works! To reach your target, follow the steps below.

 1. Prepare handouts for a selected topic (ie. Flowcharts, schema, graphic organizers

2. Describe your hand outs.

3. Present it to your FS teacher before reproducing it.

As you prepare your hand outs, use the activity form below.

Hand-out Planning Guide
  1. What topic do I like to work on?
  2. For what grade or year level is my hand out?
  3. What components do include in my outline?
  4. What type of graphic organizers/flow-charts/schemas do I need to use?
  5. What references do I use?

 My Analysis

After working on your handout, answer the following questions:

What are the good features of a handout?

  • There are so many so many ways that this hand outs could give out a good features in relations to one’s presentation and this could summarize as follows:
  • Create a positive impression before the presentation begins
  • Ensure that the audience takes away the key ideas as intended
  • Engage people at a deeper level as they interact with the handout
  • Keep the audience’s attention focused on the subject
  • Satisfy the needs of visual learners
  • Introduce experiential material for kinesthetic learners
  • Present information at both novice and expert levels
  • Simplify and navigate complex information
  • Establish credibility
  • Present more information than can be covered in the presentation
  • Summarize and review

Which of these features are present in the handout I made?

  • Create a positive impression before the presentation begins
  • Ensure that the audience takes away the key ideas as intended
  • Satisfy the needs of visual learners
  • Summarize and review

Which features are not present in the handout I made?

  • Engage people at a deeper level as they interact with the handout
  • Simplify and navigate complex information
  • Present more information than can be covered in the presentation

My Reflections

  1. What difficulties, if any, did you encounter in making the handouts? How did you overcome them?
  • The difficult thing that I did encounter in making the handouts was when I was choosing the important facet of the subject matter to be included. It’s not about putting all the information in your hand outs, but putting the words with sense. Too much information could burn out the readers. Doing so might make them think that it is much better to give them a book instead of a handout.
  1. What tips can you give teachers regarding preparation of handouts?
  • Making a hand outs is very important in order to give the teachers and the learners a guide that they could follow while the class is ongoing. Making an outline in relation to this will benefit the teacher to follow a certain topic in sequence because without it, a teacher might discuss or present the subject matter in a way that might lead to non- sequential arrangement of the topic that could lead to confusion on the part of the learners.

My Portfolio

                Paste a copy of your hand-out here.

Ideology

                A fundamental belief system concerned with the nature of society’s political, social, and economic arrangements and the role of individuals and groups within these arrangements.

Mass Ideologies and world wars

                FIRST WORLD WAR (1914-1918)

  1. Rise and Challenge of German industrial and military power.
  2. The ethnic conflicts between Germanic and Slavic Peoples
  3. The Existence of secret Alliances.

                 WOODROW WILSON

  • Making the world safe for democracy
  • Self determination
  • Democracies were peace and loving
  • 1st world war would not have happened if they played the role in decision making; Germany, Austro-Hungary, and Ottoman Turkey

                TOTALITATIAN DICTATORSHIP

  • A severe form of authoritarianism and is fairly rare, with the chief examples being Nazi Germany and the Communist Soviet Union.
  • 6 Classic Characteristic of Totalitarianism
  1. Ideology of Unquestioned Truth
  2. Single Political Party to Implement and Protect Ideology.
  3. A secret police that uses terrors
  4. Centralized Operation of the Economy.
  5. State-Owned Mass Media
  6. And the use.

                THREE POWERFUL IDEOLOGIES

  1. Democracy
  • An Ideology calls for a population to select its governmentand hold that government accountable to the peoplethrough elections
  1. Communism
  • Enamated from the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883),a nineteenth-century socialist. Marx though history moved forward by economic forces involving class exploitation and conflict
  1. Fascism
  • A totalitarian structure, but its content in values is entirely different from that of communism.

                 SECOND WORLD WAR (1939-1945)

  • Began with Germany’s and Russia’s attack on Poland in 1939 and ended in 1945 with unconditional surrender of the German and Japanese.
  • Italy switched sides to join the Allied.
  • The Allies fought hard to win because fascism threatened not only the independence of many states but their way of life as well.

                AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR

  • Western Allies brought democratic reforms to West Germany, and the United States did the same in Japan
  • Soviet Union moved energetically to spread its ideological system to eastern Europe and to East Germany and to lead their own alliance in this region to counter Western Power.

                COLD WAR (1947-1989)

  • The United States and the Soviet Union had a cool relationship long before 1917, when Lenin’s communists took control.
  • The Cold War were created an atmosphere of extreme tension and hostility. A move by either side caused fear and suspicion on the part of the other.
