When I began thinking about my design for my content matrix for EDM 510, I started by searching for examples. A lot of the information that I was gathering was related to business to business sales pitches. I ended up designing my own content matrix, and then did additional research. The research I found on one site in particular by Kevin Cain was useful and outlined an approach to designing a matrix, I’ll list the link at the bottom of the post. I used this site to design an approach and strategy for completing a new content matrix on different learning theory perspectives. I ended up making two different content matrices to see which I preferred. I decided to go with a content matrix with four boxes and a central idea in the center. Each box represents a different theory and gave an overview. I felt that the presentation of my content was too dense so I re-evaluated my approach and started over. My ultimate goal was to design a content matrix that made sense and facilitated the transfer of information clearly. I overhauled my original plan and kept key ideas in mind: audience, what am I trying to convey, why does it matter, and the overall usefulness of my matrix. My goal was to summarize the various theories, major influencers, and give examples of each theories applications in a classroom setting. The new matrix was broken down into levels and sub levels which enhanced the natural flow of the matrix in whole. I had issues with formatting and overall aesthetics of the second content matrix, so I went back to my first one and made some adjustments to improve the flow and presentation of information. I learned a great deal from designing my own matrix and overcame challenges of determining the best presentation of the information.
