According to Ruth C. Clark author of Developing Technical Training, A Structured Approach for Developing Classroom and Computer-based Instructional Materials, instructional technology is built on a systematic model used to plan, design, develop, and evaluate training. The model, known as the Instructional Systems Design (ISD) uses a systematic process to develop training so that you can “guarantee” learning outcomes. After doing a needs assessment, it became apparent that teachers and students needed a website that was easy to access, provided options for project development based on technology availability, and the projects needed to be scaffolded step-by-step to provide access for all. The ALPS Project Zone website has open-ended projects broken down into activities. Links to websites for research are available within each activity and virtual and non-virtual note-taking space are provided. Project examples and applications that can assist with project development are included along with 4 C’s rubrics to use for self-evaluation and assessment.
