In your opinion, what do you think an interactive lesson is made of? Well, it might depend on your preference.
To put our perceptions in sync, we've prepared a proper standard that you can follow. Using these basic tips, we bet your interactive lessons will get 10 times better than they are now! Read on to find out!
1. Prepare your topic
The first mandatory tip is to never start with a blank paper—it's something you should never skip. Needless to say, preparation can play a huge role in the success of your lesson. Therefore, you should plan everything meticulously!
If you don't know how to start, try answering these questions:
- What are you going to discuss?
- What are your aims at the end of the lesson?
- How will you break down the topic further?
Once you know these answers, you will have a solid base. And with that, you can navigate the whole process of creating lessons better!
2. Adjust the sizes and positions
An interactive lesson depends much on an interactive visual. That's why you need to consider the size and position of your objects!
When you create, you should have a keen eye on the design. Don't make the objects look too small or big, but at the same time, you should also know which objects or information that you want to highlight.
It actually links with the visual hierarchy principle, so you might want to apply a little bit of the theory to your lesson.
3. Choose a background color
This might be a tip you haven't known before—but in terms of choosing a background color, you should think about the color of your objects and texts. Make sure that those colors don't overlap, so you can still see every piece of information visibly!
4. Create several slides
Stuffing too much information into one slide is ideally not the best way to present your idea. But what if you have a long story to tell? Actually, you can try dividing them into several slides!
Luckily, Assemblr Studio Web has the Scene feature, which allows you to break down any information into several slides in one creation!
To put it simply, it's like Slides in PowerPoint, and you'll surely get the hang of it once you try.
5. Put the remaining information into annotations
Since AR-based lessons rely heavily on the visual aspects, putting too many texts can lose its essential purpose. Here, you need to think of how to present the description of your lesson well.
If you still have any information left to present, try putting them into annotations!
What your students see might be only a point or label, but when they click on it, they can see a complete description of the topic you're talking about.
6. Make use of the On-Tap feature!
To top it off, don't forget to also use our On-Tap feature, so you can add more 'wow effects' into your lesson!
Using Switch Scene and Open URL, your students can click on a certain object, and it will direct them into a different scene or open a URL on a new tab.
As this feature incorporates interactivity elements, students of any grade will absolutely love this!
Starting with these basics, we hope you can grow your skills and develop way much better interactive lessons! Also, feel free to add your own secrets and share them with fellow teachers. Happy assembling!
