Using Fantasy in Instructional #Games

Kapp Notes

There are both cognitive and emotional reasons for evoking fantasy. Cognitively a fantasy can help a learner apply old knowledge to understand new things. If the learner is applying the same cognitive schema within a fantasy-based game that they would within the actual work setting, the skills they are learning or reinforcing are indeed transferred.

xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY

MakingBetter

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) continues to be a huge supporter of the community as the current stewards of the spec itself. Cognitive Advisors is among the first wave of adopters of xAPI. We aren’t freaking out — we are FREAKING EXCITED!!! The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us.

Some Shortcomings Around Game/Simulation Research

Kapp Notes

I think cognitive load theory might have some insights but it still has some gaps. I think novice/expert research insights are helpful in this area and that everything together, site, sounds, feedback, social aspects, competition, motivation, self-efficacy, self-regulation, meta-cognition, all of these elements work simultaneousness to make a game/simulation truly effective and drawing conclusions from the statistical tests for that many variables would be almost ridiculous.

Virtual Worlds #lrnchat

Clark Quinn

This was largely because several of the organizers had recently attended one or another of the SRI/ADL meetings on the topic, but also because one of the organizers ( @KoreenOlbrish ) is majorly active in the business of virtual worlds for learning through her company Tandem Learning. Making the case is one problem (a Forrester report was cited that says enterprises do not yet get VWs), and the technical (and cognitive) overhead is another.

The DevLearn eLearning Rockstar Stage Reveal

eLearning Brothers

How games stimulate mental cognition and produce positive brain changes. Michael’s team has been driving the efforts at the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative on the Experience API (xAPI); he researches, strategizes, designs, and makes xAPI solutions and products. How certain types of video increase cognitive load. We have our very own Learning Stage at DevLearn this year! Dreams do come true, kids.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 1 (A-L)

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning): An initiative established by the US Department Of Defense in 1999, aiming to make the delivery of online training consistent across content formats, technologies, and organizations. Cognitive load: A theory developed by John Sweller that describes the strain working memory experiences when information is being processed. eLearning is full of specialist terms and acronyms that aren’t always clearly defined.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). Cognitive Load. Involves applying a methodology based on cognitive psychology and instructional theory to create learning content. Perhaps the most ubiquitous set of standards, SCORM was developed by Advanced Distributed Learning ( ADL ) and applied when developing LMS content. From Agile to xAPI and everything in between, there are a lot of eLearning terms to get your head around.
