Create Video Lessons and Embedded Assignments with ScreenPal

Session 1: 10:30am-12:00pm (Friday March 01, 2024)



The principles of instructional design for adult learners are based on andragogy as propounded by Malcolm Knowles. Successful models of online learning include chunking as an important approach for adult learners. ScreenPal’s embedded quizzes and polls allow curriculum and lesson designers to create longer video lessons with frequent knowledge checks, or short bytes of video lessons followed by a quiz at the end. In either case, student data can be collected and analyzed to allow for further differentiation. This presentation will guide educators through the salient features of ScreenPal as they apply to instructional design with formative assessment for adult students. Learning Objectives: 1)Evaluate the benefits of a new edtech tool in lesson planning for adult students. 2) Explore a new tool that integrates education technology into adult curriculum planning and instruction 3) Create a short video lesson with an embedded assessment 4) Learn how to view and analyze results.
