Ergonomics: Find out how it makes life better

I design personalized student activities where ICT supports the students in taking responsibility for their learning (e.g. choice of learning style or topics), based on TIPS (Think-Pair-Share; Lyman, 1981) pedagogical practice to increase student participation and technology to manage their own learning outside and inside the classroom (Flipped-Blended Learning model).

Keywords: Ergonomics, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Monitor, Screen resolution

Runtime: 2 hours

Delivery Mode: Blended Learning - Flipped Classroom

Designing personalized student activities (activities according to needs of students: their interests, learning preferences, and styles – sound, images)

Resources: BBC,

By the time the students finish the course, they should be able to . . .
1) Describe what is being studied - what does "ergonomics"
2) Mention seven (7) "health-protection principles" when working with the computer
