A. Problem Identification
The survey data showed the lack of use of collaboration tools with the exception
of Google. The media specialist indicated that many of the teachers were not using
technology as much as she felt that they should. Each grade level meets weekly in
what is called a Professional Learning Committee (PLC). These meetings are to
include what technology is going to be used for the following week. The media
specialist said that Padlet would be a technology that the teachers could learn about in
this staff development session and take back to their PLCs.

B. Instructional Goal
● Teachers will be able to design and use a Padlet board.
● Teachers will be able to set up an account through their school Google
● Teachers will know how to share the board with others for collaboration.
● Teachers will be able design a board to meet their needs.
● Teachers will maintain and update the board when needed.

C. Learner Analysis
My target audience consists of 12 participants that include certified teachers,
paraprofessionals, and a media specialist at Kinchafoonee Primary School in Leesburg,
Georgia. The teachers work with kindergarten through 2nd grade students. This
audience consists of regular education teachers, special education teachers,
paraprofessionals, and a media specialist. They represent various years of teaching
experience ranging from 1 to 22 years, certification levels, and knowledge of web based
tools. A Google Forms survey was sent to the staff to assess their technology skills and
Entry Skills and Prior Knowledge.
● Mastery of computer skills: Logging in to Google account with school login.
● Adequately use basic web functions.
The participants entry skills and prior knowledge were gathered through a
survey. They were asked to check which collaboration tools they have used. Most
participants stated they use Google Classroom and Docs to collaborate. 6 out of 12 use
Google Slides. All participants are proficient or somewhat proficient in basic web
functions. They all stated they were very interested or somewhat interested in learning
Padlet and three had had some prior experience with it.

Education Ability Levels

The learners function at similar ability levels. All the teachers have at least a four
year education degree and some have advanced degrees. One of the
paraprofessionals has an associates degree. None have degrees in instructional
technology. Every learner attends the same on-campus trainings through the media
center on teacher workdays. Prior education and years of teaching practices have
made the group proficient in the use of basic web functions. After reviewing the survey,
it was determined that there was not a need for training in web use prior to the Padlet

D. Task Analysis
I formed my task analysis using a procedural analysis method. As I wrote the
task analysis, I walked myself through the process to make sure I arranged the steps
properly and did not miss any. I also watched a couple of youtube tutorials that helped
my with my steps. I feel that using only a procedural analysis is best, most effective
way to teach the task to the teachers who are on limited time for professional
