Digital Design Theory: Observation, Orientation and Notation
Good teaching has a method for transferring knowledge. In math, students are taught theorems and proofs. The results may be written as a formula: a2 + b2 = c2. Chemistry has a specific language for teaching and documentation as well: H2O. Music has a written language, too, or we would have lost the works of Beethoven and Mozart. And so does computer technology.
Observation, Orientation and Notation: The Computer Mama method comes from years of teaching online and in the classroom. We have been able to take a complex subject and teach it plain and simple.
Observation: Using the Words Each lesson explains the objective and how todays’ technology available can meet the goals. There are many ways to get the job done. Students want to know which ones work best.
Orientation: Thinking in Pictures Our Microsoft Office certification lessons include at least one image that shows the entire screen as well as a close up of the particular option. Menu Maps at the beginning of each lesson help the student focus on which Ribbons can complete the task.
Notation: Writing it Down Computer technology uses Breadcrumbs to document how someone can find one button among hundreds. Breadcrumbs are printed above each image in our computer lessons so that our students can find their way back.
We teach the way you learn
“I did it! I passed the PowerPoint exam! She said it was the highest score she has seen. I scored 967 (required: 700) and I got 100% on everything but Working with Visual Content which was 89%!”– V.S., Student, Community College of Rhode Island
We write the way you teach
“Your instructions were great! They executed the skills with little to no problems. I was still able to help on some things which I enjoyed! Thanks so much!!” -K.M., Teacher, TeachersPayTeachers
