The Teacher Education Program at Macquarie University is trialling the use of LAMS as a scaffold for lesson planning with pre-service teachers. Throughout the process of authoring a LAMS sequence, these students are required to think about all aspects of their lessons in detail and LAMS enables them to experience the lesson themselves via a Preview mode before using it in the classroom. The graphic interface allows students and their tutors to visualise lessons providing an instant 'picture' of the lesson and its content with a clarity not available in traditional written lesson plans. In addition, LAMS creates these lessons in a standardised template of activities that can easily be modified for future re-use.
