VIDEOPROTOTYPE – TEACHEREDO

Group 01, Videoprototype, WS1718

Our final concept was named „TeacheRedo” which reflects the purpose of our tool: Teachers should be able to reuse an already prepared lesson unit from another teacher. Because of the great differences between various classes, the main idea of the concept is that a lesson shouldn’t be reused as it is, but its fragments. These fragments are recognized as parts of a puzzle. Every session in the tool starts with selecting the grade, the subject and the topic of the lesson. The next step is to design the template of the lesson. The Teacher can choose between several “puzzle parts” like an intro, an exercise or an experiment. This kind of designing leaves every opportunity of lesson arrangement to the teacher himself/herself. After choosing puzzle parts and arranging them in the desired order, the teacher can attach different files to every part. The available files include videos, documents, exercises, experimental approaches and other useful types of data. The available files are contained by a database, which is regularly complemented and updated by a community of teachers and other educationists. In the final step, the teacher can decide whether he/she want to print the required documents and save multimedia files on a memory stick or save all files or send them per email to be able to print it in school.
An additional purpose of the concept is obviously to stop redundant work and to bring teachers to work together more frequently. Successful lessons can be reused, or young teachers can learn from them. Less successful teaching units can be criticized and improved by other teachers. And maybe some older teachers could learn from the younger ones.
The next steps of this project would contain a research with our clickable prototype to determine the feedback of the potential users and a raw implementation of it for a test group to check if it would be useful in their daily work routine. Additional features would be a rate function with optional comments, a storage function to save complete lessons in the application to be able to reuse them.
