Lifelong Kindergarten

Lunch n’ Learn Presentation

lifelongkindergarden.png

This presentation describes Mitchel Resnick’s creative learning methodology as defined in his award-winning book Lifelong Kindergarden: Cultivating Creativity Through Projects, Passion, Peers, and Play. It offers Resnick’s “4Ps” as a solution for passive learning shortcomings and outlines the importance of the creative learning spiral, interest-drive learning, “remix” culture, playpen vs. playground, portfolios and more!

This presentation was developed in early 2019 as part of a lunch n’ learn session with colleagues. I read Lifelong Kindergarten and wanted to share my new knowledge and insights.

eInvoicing Invoice Failure Troubleshooting for Suppliers

Job Aid

GHX’s eInvoicing e-commerce solution reports to accounts receivable departments when their electronic invoices fail to be delivered. These departments can troubleshoot the problem and discover why the electronic invoice failed. This job aid offers GHX “integrated” and “non-integrated” customers methods for troubleshooting invoice failure.

The job aid was developed in early 2019 as new eInvoicing customers needed help checking why their electronic invoices failed to be delivered.

My Exchange Webinar Series Education Usage

Data Analysis

Because of lower than expected customer satisfaction scores and concern for the success of GHX’s My Exchange general availability launch in May 2017, GHX hosted a series of hour-long webinars with the goal of providing customers more information and clarity about My Exchange functionalities.

The Product Education team had two main objectives for the web series: Increase customer awareness about the My Exchange education resources and increase customer usage of the My Exchange education resources. This data analysis report concentrates on the latter objective by measuring My Exchange How-to videos viewership and eLearning user enrollment.

eInvoicing for Users and Administrators Learning Path

Self-Paced Modules

GHX’s eInvoicing solution enables healthcare provider accounts payable departments who do not have EDI technology to receive digital invoices from their suppliers in PDF format. The intended goal of the eInvoicing for Users and Administrators learning path is to transform a prospective eInvoicing user without experience in the application into a proficient expert. The series of self-paced modules is scaffolded to build learners’ knowledge and skills from fundamental to complex tasks. Furthermore, the content is designed to be more adaptable to eInvoicing’s near-monthly updates by utilizing linked tutorial videos and best practices documentation.

These modules were completed early 2018, almost a year before eInvoicing’s general availability in 2019. Normally hosted on an LMS, the learning path is also specially hosted on a server for European users who are currently unable to access GHX’s LMS.

The Fake News Phenomenon

Virtual Teacher Capstone

Deliberate fake news and accusations of fake news are obscuring truth and tailoring perspectives to align with political biases and agendas. As university students begin to solidify their political identities, they must learn to recognize and filter fake news and base their ideals on facts.

This learning experience design plan was developed as the capstone project for the Virtual Teacher Specialization series of courses taught by the University of California Irvine and hosted by Coursera.com in 2017.

Gradebook Analysis

Virtual Teacher Specialization

Unbalanced gradebooks unfairly grade students and expose opportunities for students to miss crucial learning experiences. Gradebooks must weigh formative and summative assessments according to their meaningfulness reflected in the student’s final grade.

This gradebook analysis was drafted as part of the Virtual Teacher Specialization series of courses taught by the University of California Irvine and hosted by Coursera.com in 2017.

4 Cs of Mobile Learning

Infographic

Because mobile learning (m-learning) dwells in smaller, on-the-go devices, it’s learning experience differs from typical e-learning. Clark Quinn recognized m-learning’s distinct modality and invented the “4 Cs” as a framework for designing learning experiences that utilize mobile devices’ unique tools and limitations.

I used Piktochart to create this infographic as part of my professional expansion into learning technologies and instructional design in 2014. In 2018, Greg Lewis, a sessional instructor at Vancouver Island University, asked to use the inforgraphic for his Mobile Technologies and Game Based Learning course.
