ADDIE is the Scavenger of Instructional Design, Not the Bitch Goddess (or Blooming Beyond Bloom)
Big Dog, Little Dog
MARCH 23, 2012
When ADDIE was first handed over to the U.S. For some reason instructional designers love building ADDIE into a goddess that orders them to build crappy learning platforms. From its inception, ADDIE was designed to be a lean, mean, instructional design machine. ADDIE has specific steps that are strictly designed for learning. This has led others to believe that ADDIE is too lean, that it tells them what to do, but not how to to it. Revised Bloom's Taxonomy.
