Outside/ Macro: Previews and Then Reviews
If you bookend your Instructional Content with a Preview to start and a Review at the end – then you will have accomplished placing Placeholders for Advanced Organizers to prep the learner – and Debriefings to provide time and space for learner reflection.
What about inside those bookends?
Inside/ Micro: Reviews and Then Previews
But inside those – you need to Flip those elements and in between each “modular chunk” with a Review of what we just covered – in any media – and a Preview of how that links to the next content.
The Review – is the part that enables the immediate reflection of what was just covered. Before we just launch into the next part.
The Preview – is the segue/ transition to what follows and how all the pieces fit/link together.
