  3. Constructing a lesson plan using a blog on a chosen platform and checking it against TPACK (Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge), SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) and Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.

Assessment Task

  • Write a series of lessons incorporating blogs on a chosen platform.
  • Present the lessons to a class.
  • Email the lesson plans as well as what you have learned from the experience to a specified email address for evaluation.

Notional Learning Time

When you get your certificate, you will notice that we have indicated Notional Learning Time. This is the amount of time we expect a learner to spend on achieving the outcomes of this session. It is made up of the two hours of the training here, and then the time taken to complete your Badge Assessment Task. It is an estimate and you may find you spend a little less time, or perhaps a little more.
