2022 Gold award winner: Best Certification Program. Kick and Mindwise partnered to create this professional online training to teach everyone from teachers to school transportation staff how to be trusted adults who can properly assist vulnerable students. Kick designed the course using Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction with Bruner’s Spiral Curriculum model and instructional scaffolding with ‘Just In Time’ information. M. David Merrill’s First Principles of Instruction is a task-based model that prescribes five principles of instruction identified as being common to effective evidenced-based instructional design and development. It is more commonly referred to as the Show It – Try It – Do it model.
As with all of our online learnings, this module incorporates rich graphic design, audio and video media, and interactivity throughout. We are looking forward to partnering with Mindwise in 2022 to create a similar training geared toward college students.
