Issue #14 of Educational Designer released!
Issue #14 of the electronic, open-access ISDDE journal “Educational Designer” has just been published. It can be accessed directly at the home page Educational Designer.
The articles in this issue each focus on a design challenge. Harouna Ba and Dor Abrahamson discuss the designers’ dilemma of how much freedom to allow students to initiate and define their own tasks by comparing two movement-based STEM learning activities. Martin Johnson, Rachael Horsman and Darren Macy outline the design process they used to create a framework of mathematics content which can be used by educators in emergency contexts where learners are forcibly displaced by conflict or disaster. Yu-Ping Chang, Fou-Lai Lin and Kai-Lin Yang are leaders of Taiwan’s Just Do Math project, a wide-reaching teacher professional development initiative using a multi-layered and multi-stage cascade model. They describe designing the professional development for those leaders who will help very large numbers of teachers embed the new principles into regular classrooms.
“Educational Designer” welcomes contributions related to the design of educational programs, products. systems and services. Details of the range of contributions that are welcome appear on the journal home page.
