Haiku Deck-Good Fit Books


Artifact Introduction: During our third week in multimedia class, we were to research the Modality and Redundancy principles. Keeping these principles in mind we used Haiku Deck to create a presentation on the topic of our choice. I decided to create a presentation on choosing Good Fit Books for my fourth-grade students to use at the beginning of the school year when we begin Daily Five. This is a fun lesson for which I bring in shoes, but it will be a wonderful addition to have a presentation to guide the lesson.

Reflection of Learning: The modality principle states that individuals learn better when listening to audio narration rather than on-screen text. The redundancy principle states that having both on-screen text and narration is redundant and impedes learning.  (Clark & Mayer, 2011) Therefore, using Haiku Deck was wonderful for this project because of the limited text that can be used on the presentation, it really helped me keep these principles in mind. While creating the presentation and choosing the images I kept the narration in mind to ensure that I was creating a presentation where students were going to use dual channels and connect the concepts about choosing books to what they were seeing with the shoes.  I chose to keep one idea (shoes or books) per slide so as to not overload the cognitive processing of the learners. I really enjoyed using this program and all the benefits it offered.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
