I am going to try to be more specific with my teachers and with my posts when it comes to using this in a technical school classroom. I send an email each week with a tool or strategy, and I thought that maybe giving specific examples would help them visualize using it in their classroom. So here it goes!
Here’s what was great about this assignment:
- The students had to think critically to determine at what date the child would be experiencing a specific developmental milestone.
- The students had to categorize the types of milestones.
- The students are able to visually understand how a child grows and develops—through the timeline and through adding images.
- It only took about 1 hour!
Here’s how I think other programs here at the Tech Center can easily use this powerful program:
- Nursing students can track a disease’s progression or the steps in patient care procedures.
- Culinary students can map out the steps in a difficult recipe or create a timeline for a catering event to stay organized.
- Construction, Welding, and HVAC students can create a sequence for any steps in building/fixing anything.
- Public Safety students can create the timeline of a crime scene or an accident to understand the progression of events, or they can create a sequence for procedure of a traffic stop.
- Landscaping/Turf students can create a timeline of plants that grow best during each month or can create a sequence for growing/caring for plants or creating landscape designs.
- Auto Body students can create a timeline or a sequence for the steps in repairing damage.
- Auto Service and Outdoor Power Equipment students can create a sequence for any repair work done in the shop.
- Legal/Medical students can create timelines and sequences for any office procedures.
- Electronics students can create sequences for building circuits or any other item.
- Cosmetology students can create a timeline for managing clients effectively to get their procedure done in the allotted amount of time or can create a sequence for any procedure.
