Oh, and see “Help”!  PT is REQUIRED to use many curriculum practice activities, but also quizzes, Chapter exams, Practice and Actual Final Exams, and of course PTSAs

All rights reserved. 5 Scientific Visualization is a crucial part of most STEM disciplines Consider PT Simulation mode a single-step, entire-network, packet sniffer Research shows the power of animations, packet tracing, and student “what if” questions Check out the protocol list! Device tables! Packet contents! Scenario features! QoS!

7 Cisco Confidential © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 7 Research indicates the utility of performance-based assessments PTSAs can improve the validity, fairness, and security of an your exam portfolio Automatically graded work product, process logs, and extensive feedback Isomorphic tasks (“task families”) allow for better security and/or multiple retakes for mastery

9 Cisco Confidential © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 9 Research shows the power of learners building their own network models This process may be described as constructivist; as an “inquiry” process; as “what ifs” with “aha” moments Scaffolding can be heavy (lots of guidance) or minimal (more problem-based), individual or in teams, in-person or via social networking, compare/contrasting PT & real

11 Cisco Confidential © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 11 Learning research emphasizes the importance of context, especially for motivation and transfer of learning to work contexts. Consider.pkz (like zip, with gfx) Curriculum.pka files are often (not always) written with a minimal amount of context to avoid cognitive overload (distraction) Stories provide context; but many times the best stories are localized to the learners

13 Cisco Confidential © 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 13 Research indicates that games have great educational potential Many types of NetAcad resources can be turned into games by social means We have two computer-based games, Packet Tracer Multiuser (PTMU) and Aspire Educational games that are both fun and teach useful networking skills are challenging for Cisco to develop; help us.

Maybe you want to translate or localize? Maybe you alone, or you and your peers, want to write your own, from “scratch”?

All rights reserved. 20 You are part of a complex activity system If your preferred mode of collaboration is international, check out the PT community If your preferred mode of collaboration is more local, work with Sew Hoon, Kevin, Karen, and Giuseppe and your peers There is immense power and openness in the Packet Tracer Ecosystem. Be patient with Activity Wizard, Scoring Model and Scripting, as we prioritize student-facing features, not AW UX WE. ARE. PARTNERS.
