support web concept for teacher’s learning environment

May 2, 2012

Recently i was supervising the master thesis of Kristi Laanemäe. She conducted the formative analysis (interviews with art teachers who had used the support-web) to develop and validate and improve the support web concept with social media for art education set “Ready! Set! Art!” website.

The goal of RSA support web is to:

  • make RSA art educational materials dynamic and constantly improved
  • give additional value to RSA art educational materials
  • use as few resources (money and time) as possible to update and develop RSA support web
  • distribute and advertise RSA art learning environment and NGO ideas and image
  • bring art education up to date.

Improved support web:

  • accumulates access to all the different parts of support web
  • collects and accumulates artifacts automatically
  • gathers produsers
  • distributes automatically or enables to manually distribute artifacts (student works, feedback and additional materials)
  • enables web based communication
  • guarantees user-to-user feedback and organized feedback (user-to-NGO communication through feedback form)
  • provides extra value to RSA art educational materials
  • distributes and advertises RSA learning environment automatically
  • allows to manage or sort content by users needs
  • allows combined and interactive learning
  • has dynamical adaptiveness and easily perceivable structure that applies to user needs
  • motivates produsers automatically and manually.

I particularly like the figure that Kristi developed for support web concept.

Support web conceptual model developed by Kristi Laanemäe (2012) for support web of teachers' educational materials in Art.
