Interactive Scenarious with Anna Sabramowicz

Visible to anyone in the world

After a couple of weeks of distractions I am back to trying to master interactive elearning design with Anna Sabramowicz. He informal webinars on Facebook are a great place to get started, and for me to keep in touch and to regain my focus as I develop a project.

Scenarios not conversations

Visible to anyone in the world

This is a scenario framework for learning.

1) There is a situation

2) There is a certain response

3) click

4) and there is an outcome.

This is NOT a conversation.

It is a situation that will have consequences, a decision is taken to do one thing or another, and there is an outcome.

In this instance I guess they've gone for a beer rather than gone to the movies, or had an argument and gone their separate ways.

Having developed a script along these lines to support age group swimmers with asthma, I am now looking at Independent Travel Training for Students with Special Educational Needs.

My mentor/tutor and guide is Anna Sabramowicz.

Beat Asthma Before Asthma Beats You

Visible to anyone in the world

My asthma awareness script for age group swimmers is now done. The next step is to cost it, fund it and produce it. I feel like the teenage who got into video production age 17 - 40 flipping years ago!

Am I as excited? A bit, though I lack the drive and have far too many other distractions.

Scenario-Based E-Learning

Visible to anyone in the world

Working with Anna Sabramowicz I have been introduced to the following scenario-based projects. This is what I would like to create to teach compliance with asthma drugs, and so much more ...

Broken Coworker : https://brokencoworker.com/ 

Connect with Haji Kamal : https://www.worldwarfighter.com/hajikamal/activity/ 

How to survive a nuclear bomb : http://how-to-survive-a-nuclear-bomb.pilots.bbcconnectedstudio.co.uk/index.html#

Our World War : WWI BBC :https://our-world-war.pilots.bbcconnectedstudio.co.uk/ 

Life Saving : Life Saver:http://life-saver.org.uk/#/REAL_STORIES

Will You Fit In? Deloitte:http://www.raptmedia.com/customers/deloitte/

I break the process down into six parts: 

  1. Business Alignment : are you a match for the client. Do you understand what they want and where your skills lie for delivery of interactivity.
  2. My Perfect Learner [Persona profiling] : get it down to one learner. Know who they are so that you can talk to them. 
  3. Interview. Call preparation and the story journey questions : interview the life out of the Subject Matter Expert (make sure they are the SME and you're not being fobbed up with an apprentice or someone tangential to the learning problem).
  4. Character Identification Criteria : build a profile of the protagonist of your story. The hero. It is their journey. 
  5. Write the Script : like any great storyteller, made all the harder with what is in effect a short story with a number of parallel routes.
  6. Produce it: find an illustrator, get a developer.

Broken Co-Worker : Scenario-Based Elearning

Broken Co-Worker. Scenario-Based elearning

Several weeks working Anna Sabramowicz and I'm now scripting my own 'scenario-based' e-learning aimed at age group swimmers struggling to manage their recently diagnosed asthma. So much of this takes me back to scriptwriting and story telling - short films in particular. There is a unique skill in narrowing things down to the characters and events that produce conflict and outcomes.

Give it a go 'Broken Co-Worker'.

Learning Design with Anna Sabramowicz

Visible to anyone in the world

 

In my second week of a six week bespoke course on using scenarios in learning design with Anna Sabramowicz. Aware of her, her work and influence via LinkedIn for many years I leapt at the opportunity to learn her approach. I immediately feel the time, cost and effort on this is justified. It all rings true. I feel at home. I described it to her as the feeling a muscian or singer might get coming back to sheet music to sing or even compose a song after a decade - at first it feels a struggle, but then it all fits into place.

Is that what I wanted 18 years ago when I started the MA in Open & Distance Learning as it was then? Is this practical insight into creating online learning what I had hoped for from the MA ODE which I finally took and completed between 2010 and 2013?

Is this what I had been looking for in my short spells in a Brighton eLearning agency?

The real magic is to feel that my researching, enquiring, planning, developing, creating, visualing and dialogue writing skills and experience can all be used in creating drama recreations, or cartoon enactments that offer the user a number of choices. The MAODE also rings true with course design, the 'swimming lanes' and flow charts that we worked on - and my efforts to simplify this to a few lines of coloured bricks in the style of Gilly Salmon. 

I will be working on a subject that I had worked up into a PhD research proposal - getting young people to follow a better regimen when it comes to taking their asthma drugs.

  IMAGE TO ADD - Remind me!

 

For a long time following Anna Sabramowicz on LinkedIn I became increasingly taken by here quirky and clear pieces on Twitter about the value of Scenario Design Learning in eLearning design. The opportunity came to join her on a new project where she leads a group learning her approach.

I begin her 8 week course at the end of May.
