Hi Zhihao

I do agree with your point. Artificial intelligence has the ability to process data and information accurately as well as quickly to eliminate human-caused errors and to improve technology. Artificial intelligence will be used to drive various automated services for people. For example, to build smart cities and improve the environment. Or using self-driving cars to navigate roads and assess obstacles through artificial intelligence. But I don’t think overuse of AI is a perfect thing either, and could create situations where AI systems replace humans and therefore lead to massive human layoffs. In this case, I think it is important to use AI more rationally.

Photo post-processing

By looking through the photos in my phone, I made some adjustments to the following two sets of landscape photos. The main ones I used were adjusting the brightness, contrast, and increasing the saturation, color temperature and sharpness. Make the new photos become more colorful. And in the second set of images, I also made the images more refined by editing and cropping the size of the images.

Blog 6 How Do We Evaluate Multimedia and Multimedia Tools?

Both TPACK and SAMR models are models used to describe the degree of integration of technology and instruction, and both are intended for use by educators, teachers, or instructional designers. The main difference between them both is the difference in the way of integration and the perspective of integration.

The SAMR model describes the manner and degree of integration of technology and instruction. In SAMR, the instructional designer integrates technology and instruction through the four steps of Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. This is a linear process from low to high, bottom-up. The designer can consider each of these steps in turn and decide which approach to use to integrate technology and instruction according to the needs of the instruction. At the same time, these four steps can be seen as the level of integration of technology and instruction. The higher the level of integration, the higher the level of integration. In addition, SAMR takes a more “technology” oriented perspective on how to help integrate technology with teaching and learning.

TPACK model describes the interaction of technology, pedagogy, and content. When using TPACK for instructional design, teachers or instructional designers need to consider their knowledge of the three areas and then integrate them in the same instructional activity. For example, when designing an English debate activity that trains English speaking and logical thinking skills, teachers or instructional designers need to consider their knowledge in the areas of debate topics, English speaking, and thinking training (content), their skills in instructional design, classroom organization, and debate facilitation (pedagogy), and their knowledge in the use of technology to support this debate teaching activity well (technology), respectively. Thus, in TPACK, technology is not the main perspective, but is considered by users in parallel with pedagogy and content.

Thus, TPACK and SAMR models can be used in combination. Designers can use TAPCK to guide themselves on how to integrate technology with instruction. At the same time, SAMR can also be used to examine the depth of their integration of technology and instruction.

Hi Zhihao

I can see that you are very familiar with UDL,UID and UbD, and have explained the characteristics of each of them in your BLOG, making the content of the article very clear. But I think the content is too theoretical, it would be better to add some of your own opinions or some of your own experiences. I agree with what you said that UDL can eliminate obstacles in the course, which can make the teaching process more targeted to some extent, and also help some students with physical and mental disabilities better adapt to learning and meet the educational needs of students with different needs.

Hi Zhaohan

I quite agree with you, and I also think that the combination of study and games can promote students’ enthusiasm for study to some extent. But for the lower grade students, they don’t have enough control ability and the resolution, the experience of early Internet gaming might make them withhold the temptation of the network, indulge in the game environment and to enter the website of did not appear to be related with learning, thus losing the meaning of gaming learning at the beginning. Younger students can be helped to increase their interest in learning through gamification of the classroom. And those senior students can improve their learning through the Internet gamification, stimulate the enthusiasm of learning.

Assignment 3-Core Multimedia Skills

In blog 4 Multimedia Learning Objects and Artifacts: Graphics & Infographics, I chose Canva to make a poster about the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional Chinese festival. In the initial design, I encountered some problems, for example, what I wanted to express was not obvious and there were too many elements to express, which finally led to the chaotic picture and unclear idea. After learning multimedia design, I made a second revision.

This is my original design:

Here’s my latest version:

Poster presentations are a valid form of transferring academic knowledge. However, greater flexibility in their design and dissemination is required.(Rowe,2009) So the poster is a kind of information transmission art, is a popular propaganda tool. Poster design needs to have appeal and artistic appeal, to mobilize the image, color, composition, sense of form and other factors to form a strong visual effect; Its picture should have a strong visual center, and has a unique artistic style and design characteristics.

At the beginning of the new poster design, I realized the importance of poster layout and color matching, to choose the most representative phenomenon or element and use the color consistent with the theme. Sometimes, although the composition is simple, it can show an attractive artistic conception, to achieve the effect of blending the scene. So I combined the information from the three pictures in the old poster to make the picture more concise. I chose green as the main color of the poster, because on this day, people will eat zongzi to commemorate the festival. The skin of zongzi is wrapped with reed leaves, so green is a representative color. Then on this day, people will hold dragon-boat racing activities. I also included two boats in the poster.

Poster fonts and sizes are also important. I changed the font order of the title from one row to three. Then I made some adjustments to the color of the text, again using a matching green. Because the text is too small, the layout is square, so I add lines and symbols in the form of decoration, will not be so boring, but also a little breakthrough sense.

Multimedia Design for Learning and Differentiated Learning

5 Examples of Universal Design for Learning in the Classroom | Reading  Rockets

With the close combination of education and technology, multimedia applied to the field of education, it can get rid of the boring traditional curriculum, into a vivid and flexible form. The use of multimedia teaching can make the original abstract, boring learning content through graphics, animation and other forms of expression and become intuitive, enhance students’ interest in learning. And it can promote the transformation from the teaching mode of knowledge imparts to the teaching mode of quality education. Multimedia teaching system can create a teaching environment for students to study independently.

Differentiated learning can be taught according to the characteristics of each child. For example, for those special children, the government and schools need to pay more attention and care for them so that they can get fair educational opportunities and develop their special skills and abilities.

Compared with traditional teaching methods, multimedia teaching method has many advantages, but there are also many problems, if handled improperly, it can not reach the ideal teaching effect. Multimedia teaching is too dependent on teaching environment and facilities, and lacks the flexibility and diversity of teaching methods. Excessive influence of objective uncertainties in the learning process, such as power failure, network and computer failure, will delay and delay time, and may affect the whole learning efficiency.

Multimedia Learning Objects and Artifacts: Graphics & Infographics

This week, I learned the important parts of multimedia: Graphics and Infographics.It can attract viewers through the fun and concise content of the design, and achieve a good effect of communication. Effective infographics can support learning objectives and instructional goals because they involve a type of reading and/or viewing experience that encourages critical thinking and processing. The cognitive processing of content or a narrative represented and interpreted visually.(Joanna,2016) And the author Akthar suppose the consistency of the quality and characteristics of the infographic.(2021)

The following is designed by using Canva according to Chinese traditional festivals.

This Friday, we ushered in the Dragon Boat Festival, on this day we will race dragon boats and eat zongzi, so I put two representative pictures together and marked the time. In my opinion, for brochure, it is very eye-catching to choose some bright colors and exquisite pictures. In addition, it should show what it wants to express and the most important content, but do not show too much text information.

Hi Zhihao

It can be seen that the BLOG you prepared is very attentive, and the form of expression contains textual expression and video content, as well as the experience of the experience in multimedia learning. As you said, in a multimedia learning environment, it is better for students to remember the information.And students can study anytime and anywhere, and can check the gaps by re-watching those issues they don’t understand. I couldn’t agree more, vivid and imaginative multimedia presentations will quickly catch students’ eyes and open their horizons. And those texts and images will deepen their impressions and make them build a more systematic structure of knowledge at the same time.
