Mari has organized traffic lesson day in Traffic City in Laitse Rally Park. She has previously used printed sheets with signs and explanations, but her pupils were not engaged and did not pay attention on learning points. Now she has discovered this new Traffic signs app and instead of having tons of paper printed out she has asked that all her pupils would take their phones with them. As the place is outside Tallinn they will have 1 hour bus trip to Traffic City and Mari introduces the app to her pupils and explains how the day will be organized.
When they arrive at Laitse Rally Park, they will be given short introduction about the park layout and then jump right into traffic. At first they walk around and have a glance on different signs and discuss which of them they already know, in which places they have seen the sign and what they think it means. Mari then asks the pupils to search the signs from app and read the explanation and then they discuss how pupils understand the meaning and how they should act in real traffic situation. If it is not clear, they will watch small videos.
In first round everybody reads themselves and on second round they will have small quiz about traffic signs.
- Is this scenario realistic to you, would you use the app like described in scenario?
- Does it sound good idea to have traffic day outside the classroom?
- Would you do anything differently?
- How long you see you would use the app (in the traffic lesson day)?
- Would you use testing module for quiz or rather paper based test?
- If you would have two teachers giving the lesson what would you do differently?
