      Review the Facilitation Manual: Live Session Content Section.  Review the Memory Formation Model and the Engagement Strategies of Master Educators. Also Review the Slide Deck for the Participation Manual. The content, the sequence of the content, and the organization and presentation of information in the slide deck are intentionally designed to create a learning experience that is
      •  Visible
      •  Interactive and multi-sensory
      • Psychologically Safe
      • Socially Non-Threatening
      Understanding the design and how to deliver the content in the slide deck will help you facilitate a student-centered learning experience. When you understand the design, you will make better delivery decisions as a facilitator. In your own words, describe how the slide deck design and sequence for the 3 content areas (Memory Formation Model, Engagement Strategies of Master Educators, and the Sprint Formula) are designed to meet each of these four needs. Give examples and be specific when possible.
      1. Make learning visible
      2. Make learning interactive and multi-sensory
      3. Make learning psychologically safe
      4. Make learning socially non-threatening

      The slide deck design and sequence for these content areas shows how learning is visible, interactive, psychologically safe and socially non-threatening. For example, there are many diagrams which are then broken down into smaller steps. There are cues in the bottom right for particular engagement such as draw, predict and label, speak out loud, and write. Reasons and the WHY are explained so that learners feel safe and not stupid. Images are labeled and for example the traffic light is an image of explaining the importance of having multi-sensory content. The sprint formula is an example of these 4 learning practices. Lastly, the reviews or using the wheel name and engaging people in the chat helps it feel less threatening and more easy to understand.

      After reviewing, specifically, the Memory Formation Model, I noticed how the slide deck makes sure that it is taught in a visible, interactive, psychologically safe and socially non-threatening manner. The learning is clearly visible due to the fact that the phases that make part of the memory formation model are explained by using diagrams and drawings, and learners are encouraged to do their own drawings as well. Moreover, the fact that they are drawing what they see along with the other participants and even the facilitator, and then have to show their drawing to the camera, makes the learning interactive. There are also moments in the live session in which participants have to repeat out loud a certain concept in order for them to become more comfortable with the terminology, making the learning psychologically safe. Finally, I noticed that by having the facilitator demonstrate their own rendering of the Memory Formation Model in the slide deck, (which isn’t necessarily a perfect drawing)– this I believe would give comfort to participants that their drawing don’t have to be perfect either and provide them with the confidence to show their drawings to the camera, and thus, the learning becomes socially non-threatening.
