The ADDIE instructional model is a process that is employed by training developers and instructional design. The ADDIE model incorporates five cyclical phases: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. These processes present a flexible and dynamic guideline for building effective performance and training support tools. I watched a YouTube video of laying different types of tiles on the floor.
The designer of the video and the technique that the trainer employed introduced the basis of the training through identifying the intended audiences. For example, he introduced through stating that some contractors and prospective builders employed inappropriate strategies and approaches in laying tiles (Allen & Sites, 2012). The trainer talked about the challenges and shortcomings that some builders faced because of poor use of tools (Czaja & Sharit, 2012). The trainer had a clear objective and end goal of the training (Stolzer, Halford & Goglia, 2013). The trainer clearly stated that the purpose is to laying tiles effectively with minimal costs and anybody can complete the task provided they adhered to the steps.
The instructions were clear since the trainer indicated the ineffectiveness of the constructors because of choosing inappropriate tools and equipment (Czaja & Sharit, 2012). The trainer indicated the important tools to accomplish the construction processes and identified challenges, that may rise during the construction (Gilley, Dean & Bierema, 2013). The trainer had an understanding of challenges, and therefore, the educational program was not too fast and important components of laying tiles were considered. The trainer clarified the steps and sometimes repeated the steps to clarify a point.
The trained explained some reasons for the approach was taken (Dowdle & Ahmed, 2013). For example, a rough surface was appropriate to lay the tiles rather than a smooth surface because the rough surface creates a stronger bonding with the tiles compared to the alternative. Moreover, the trainer elaborated on the tools and the reasons behind the usage of the different tools (Allen & Sites, 2012). Furthermore, the laying and flow of water, slippery and other components that inform on laying were addressed extensively (Czaja & Sharit, 2012). The training video was 45 minutes long; it was very innovative. For example, the trainer showed examples of consequences of not installing the tiles accurate (Stolzer, Halford & Goglia, 2013). Falls and life span of the tiles were examples of challenges that may occur. In addition, the aesthetic factor was integral in laying the tiles.
The trainer also stated that materials were important as laying the times (Dowdle & Ahmed, 2013). Quality tiles were important because it last longer. In addition, the trainer said it is appropriate to choose the tiles depending on the use of the surface tiled (Allen & Sites, 2012). For example, the tiles used in the bathroom should not be slippery because of the surface use. The busy areas such as lobby areas require tiles that withstand the heavy use (Stolzer, Halford & Goglia, 2013).
In concluding the training, the trainer illustrates the importance of appropriate lying of tiles based on the accomplished tasks. The trainer indicated the reasons why some steps were taken initially, such as choosing tiles, which were easy to clean. The aspect of the evaluation was used at every step of training because the trainer supposed the decisions taken in laying the tiles with real experiences. After completing the laying process, the trainer illustrated the benefits of laying the tiles as stated and the outcome of the entire process. Hence, the video was educative in laying tiles, and even a layperson can use the proposed steps and strategies to accomplish the tile laying requirements.
