Chapter 8 of the open textbook Teaching in a Digital Age, by the SECTIONS developer and author Dr. Tony Bates, provides a full description of the model, and here is a SECTIONS planning framework out of UBC which may help provide additional details and guidance on its use.
After you’ve read a bit about the model, try your hand at this quiz by matching the criteria to their definition and scope.
Map your chosen technology to the SECTIONS model through our aptly-named “Map your technology to the SECTIONS model” exercise.
Once you have completed all of the steps, choose the “Export Text” button to save your work.
Refine your idea
Based on your consideration of the SECTIONS model, you may need to refine the ideas you’ve formed around your planned technology use. Take time to do so before moving on to the prototyping step.
After you’ve selected your technology, circle back to our Learner Challenge Bank Padlet and your earlier post that described your challenge. This time, add a post that identifies what technology you selected and connect the two posts together. Full instructions are in the description of the Padlet.
