Schumper Limited t/a Aquila Education
Schumper Limited LLC, an education technology startup based in Cork, is seeking an instructional developer for full time work. Schumper limited develops augmented and virtual reality apps for the education market, and pairs each app with curriculum and lessons for teachers and students.
We are seeking an instructional designer who has experience designing educational curriculum for primary and secondary students, as well as developing teacher resources. This is a work from home position.
There are a variety of projects in development, which include:
Support with App Development
You will work with our Unity developer and other instructional specialists to create and identify augmented and virtual reality apps. You will not be responsible for developing the app, but provide examples and support with content and how the app can be used in a classroom setting.
You will develop a 45-60 minute lesson with a student worksheet and set learning objectives based on a topic using a variety of activities. You will also design the teacher lesson plan and presentation that will be paired with the student worksheet. This is an ongoing project, with an average of 1-2 lesson “packets” being developed each week based on a variety of topics. The lessons will be used in conjunction with the AR/VR app mentioned above.
Development of online courses for teachers and students based on the latest teaching strategies and relevant curriculum. You will highlight the main learning objectives for the course, break the objectives into smaller modules and then develop a series of “lessons” for each module. Each lesson can consist of Powerpoint videos (3-5 minutes), word documents, infographics and articles. This is a collaborative effort, and you will work closely with the other instructional designer in the development of the online course. We develop 1-2 courses per year.
Development of Teacher Resources
Each week we develop a series of resources to support teachers in their role. These can include short videos (1-2 minutes), infographics and blog posts. Based upon your research on the latest teaching strategies and educational technology, you can choose a topic to develop a resource to share with our online community.
