Web Development And Project Management Essay
The immediate areas that I need to learn and update are highlighted (in red) in the curriculum map, and are sequenced and categorised as follows:
• Theory: design principles and information architecture; and
• Practical: Adobe Muse Creative Cloud (CC) as a web authoring tool, which supports (1) responsive web design for mobile devices (both tablets and smart phones); and (2) has an integrated cloud-computing solution as a web development platform.
My learning approach reflects who I am as a learner. I am both a visual and an aural learner (VARK, 2016); but to internalise and construct my understanding (Merriam, Caffarella, & Baumgartner, 2007; Vygotsky, 1978), I need to practice and modulate; so, I am also a kinaesthetic learner (VARK, 2016). As such, I prefer a learning environment where the teacher explains and visually demonstrates what s/he knows; and where I can try things out. In my own private study, I seek learning materials that caters to my learning styles in at least one, and perhaps two or more forms. This is discussed further in the sections that follow.
