Guidelines app: Agreed so far by the FEIGHT partners (at meeting #3): “The Guidelines App will be developed for computers and SMART Boards, which are the most useful devices for teachers. It was agreed that there is insufficient budget for the app also to be developed for smartphones. The app content will be a streamlined, quick-access/fast-response version of the wider, more detailed content developed for the other products of the project. The app’s design will be interactive, accessible, simple and user-friendly.” Also it will be linked to the You’re welcome, versus arrivederci kit for VET schools.
Fundamentals: Text-based app offering the user interactive questions and answers Multiple-choice questions/answers User has to click on one of two or more radio buttons User’s choice determines where s/he goes to next Ultimately (when the questions run out!) there must be a recommendation about what to do in such-and-such a circumstance Guidelines app:
Technical: Web-based microsite, using standard web-based technology to navigate through all the options Simple WordPress (content management system) application, with some theming (logo, project colours) Registered user access (i.e., not open to everyone), with user registration handled through the FEIGHT website and managed through WordPress Hosting: extension of hosting for existing FEIGHT website and Teamlab? Adaptable for SMART Board (still web-based) using HTML4 Guidelines app:
Content: Needs to be carefully structured and very carefully written. This is where our other partners come in !! But the editor will also play a major role !! Structure ?? quite similar to the following example (see next slide): The Mitchell Beazley FIRST AID AND FAMILY MEDICAL GUIDE (edited by DTJ an unbelievable 30 years ago, in 1984!!!)
Great mind thinking about the guidelines app… Ciao!
