Questioning Gagné and Bloom’s Relevance

Experiencing eLearning

I made this comment as part of the interview: It’s easy to get caught up in theories without really looking at whether the research support is there. Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction might be helpful as a designer, but they aren’t really supported; you can skip everything but practice with feedback without much change in results. As a follow-up question , she asked where I learned the above about Gagné and Bloom. Bloom’s Taxonomy. Neither did Bloom.

Learning with 'e's

Bloom's Taxonomy has been hailed as a template for best practice in course design. Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy is probably the best known and most used, and is organised into six levels of learning rising from simple to complex. Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues identified three distinct domains of learning, namely the Cognitive (thinking - knowing, reasoning), Affective (feeling - emotions, attitudes) and Psychomotor (doing - physical skills, practice) domains.

Bloom's 2 sigma problem: a summary

Yarno

In 1984 Benjamin Bloom authored a seminal paper called The two sigma problem: the search for methods of group instruction as effective as one-on-one tutoring. Bloom presented findings that one-on-one tutoring, followed by regular tests and feedback, resulted in the average student performing 2 standard deviations (sigma) above the average of the control class. So Bloom and his team researched other methods that could result in sigma improvements.

One thing that struck me was how often Masie recommended that just-in-time electronic performance support would often meet an organization's needs instead of traditional training. This ties in with thoughts lately that a good bit of online training might better be presented as electronic performance support organized in context. Masie commented that today's top performers in an organization are both seekers of learning and avid networkers.
