Staying Hydrated

Luma Learning Strategies in the Transportation Industry

Summer is almost here! While staying hydrated anytime is important, when it gets hot you have to really pay attention to your levels…before it is too late. This learning lesson will push you to consider the roadblocks to staying hydrated. Then, we will brainstorm strategies for staying hydrated this summer!

Our free Luma Learning Lessons include objectives, estimated time, materials and instructional procedures for classroom and online/blended teaching. We will provide strategies on how to use our new LumaLive technology to collaborate virtually in real-time. We include these pillars from our learning research to illustrate where they are infused in our lessons.

Interaction Types

For decades there has been discussions of interaction types in education. (Anderson, 2003) Most interaction types observed in driver training traditionally are learner to instructor or learner to content. Moreover, most interaction time with driver training and orientation is synchronous or at the same time. This Learning Strategy is going to help you think about ways you can hold training without a physical classroom.

Interaction Time

The following Lesson is broken down into two different interaction times.

Lesson #42: Staying Hydrated


  • Brainstorm the roadblocks to staying hydrated.
  • Create strategies for staying hydrated.

Estimated Time

30 minutes


Instructional Procedures for Synchronous Training
