Objectives are not the actual task, so that ‘Complete Worksheet 3’ is not an objective. We will 51 ANDREW CONNELL AND ANTHONY EDWARDS use the term ‘task outcomes’ to represent the external product of pupils’ learning activities, such as ‘printout of spreadsheet showing formulas’, or ‘oral explanation of the role of a spreadsheet in modelling cash flow’. Always bear in mind that the purpose of the lesson is to achieve the learning objectives, not the task outcomes. Lesson objectives are often, but not exclusively, associated with short-term planning.
In other words, lesson planning. Each school or training institution usually has its own favoured template for lesson planning, but they all have the following in one form or another: learning objectives; strategies for dealing with children of different abilities, including those with very specific needs; resources; organisational issues; key features of the lesson, which are sometimes related to a timeline; and opportunities for assessment. It is essential that before you plan in detail, you should research the pupils you are teaching.
There is a particular language associated with planning, which needs clarifying before a more full discourse is undertaken. The terms ‘aims’ and ‘objectives’ are regularly employed in an educational context, but are often confused with each other. For the sake of clarity, we will adopt the following definitions, although they may vary from those used on your course. ‘Aims’ should relate to the general skills, knowledge and understanding you want the pupils to attain; for instance: understanding the use of computers as a simulation tool, or the ability to use spreadsheets, or to model cash flow.
