Title: Lesson plans developed in Poland as an example of educational materials for e-learning at schools


1
Lesson plans developed in Poland as an example of
educational materials for e-learning at schools
  • Agnieszka Kowalcze
  • Environmental Information Centre GRID-Warsaw

2
e-Learning in Science and Environmental Education
  • Internet-based learning methodology has become
    widespread in modern schools
  • Teachers, in their attempt to make their classes
    more attractive, varied, and up-to-date, more and
    more frequently use educational materials derived
    from the Internet

3
Internet resources
4
e-Learning in Science and Environmental Education
5
Preparation of lessons plans
  • The presented lesson plans vary in their
    subject matter but what makes them connected with
    one another is the GLOBE Program

6
Preparation of lessons plans
  • Each lesson plan consists of three distinct
    parts
  • introduction
  • student worksheet
  • teachers notes

7
The Introduction
Detailed layout of the Polish lesson plan is
structured as follows
  • Topic introduction
  • The aim of work
  • Materials needed
  • What to Do

8
The aim of work
  • Goals should be stated as lucidly as possible

9
What to Do
  • Task-by-task description of students work
  • Detailed description of how to work with GLOBE
    data

10
Student worksheet
  • Part of the lesson plan directly used by the
    students
  • Students fill out the worksheet with data
  • Worksheet opens in a word processesing program
    e.g. MS Word

11
Teachers notes
  • Teachers notes make up the teachers-only
    section of the lesson plan.

12
Teachers notes
  • This part contains didactic and
    methodological information concerning
  • subject
  • age of students
  • relevance and connection with the subject
    curriculum
  • educational goals and learning objectives
  • detailed plan of how to conduct the activity,
    including its expected duration time
  • teaching aids and materials necessary to complete
    the activity

13
Opinions of Polish pilot school teachers about
lesson plans on biology
  • Teachers reviewing the lesson plans were making
    sure that
  • the lesson plans were in line with the curriculum
    of a given subject
  • goals were clearly stated
  • age level was properly defined
  • all activities were properly planned considering
    the duration of the lesson unit

14
Opinions of Polish pilot school teachers about
lesson plans on biology
  • Teachers comments
  • proposed themes are not typical lesson plans that
    meet didactic requirements in Poland
  • they can supplement the curriculum but they
    cannot be used in lieu of regular class
    activities
  • they can be easily and effectively used as
    elements of educational activities at school,
    especially during extra-curricular activities or
    as homework
  • their value increases due to the fact that all
    themes are based on the GLOBE Program and on data
    gathered by students and teachers

15
Opinions of Polish pilot school teachers about
lesson plans on biology
  • Benefits for students
  • using Internet resources promotes skills and
    experience in collecting, selecting, processing
    and making proper use of web-based information
  • development and strengthening interests in
    biology
  • combining acquired knowledge with practical
    skills and abilities
  • excellent possibility to improve English

16
Conclusions
  • Lesson plans developed within the e-LSEE
    project are a good example of educational
    materials that can
  • be employed by teachers preparing classes with
    the use of web-based (Internet) teaching aids
  • serve the interested students in their
    self-learning efforts
