How The 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 2


All the arts, whether painted, danced, performed in pixels, in sound, or silence, necessarily require learners to hold two worlds in mind at the same time and then bring their powers of critique and reason to see into the aesthetic, economic, and social implications reverberating from this fictional-reality effect.

X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design

So, performance-based learning seems to be focused on assessment, having the students actively demonstrate their ability. This is, to me, an important aspect, as cognitive science recognizes that passing a knowledge test about something is not likely to transfer to the ability to do (we call it ‘inert knowledge’). That’s the point of having products of activities, at least reflection , so it sounds very much is in synergy.

How the 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 3


For in their quest to realize coherence amid the impulses of emergence, artists experience sensuous cognition at its fullest; where the hand and body work with the imagination, complex judgement, advanced reasoning, and emotional intelligence to generate… creativity! Do any of these terms sound familiar? Photo by W / Unsplash. In this third of four vodcasts, Brad Haseman, Executive Vice President of Kadenze, Inc.

Understanding Learning Styles Research

Experiencing eLearning

Via Karyn Romeis and Stephen Downes , I found two lengthy reviews of learning styles research: Learning styles and pedagogy in post-16 learning. Of the 13 models reviewed, only 1 passed all the psychometric measures: the Allinson and Hayes Cognitive Style Index. What sounds intuitively “right&# may not actually be true, or at least not useful. Learn more about the Allinson and Hayes model (Cognitive Style Index) mentioned in the literature review.

Words in mind

Learning with 'e's

Psychologists and cognitive scientists have offered a number of useful theories that aid our understanding of learning. The last post in this series featured the stages of cognitive development model proposed by Jean Piaget. In this post I examine a cognitive theory - spreading activation theory - adapted from a hierarchical model of memory proposed by Ross Quillian and Allan Collins.

The Grail of Effective and Engaging Learning Experiences

Clark Quinn

emotionally engaging introductions: hooking learners in viscerally as well as cognitively. Branching scenarios are powerful approximations to this by showing consequences in context but with limited replay, and so are constructivist and problem-based learning pedagogies. This may sound daunting, but with practice, and some shortcuts, this is doable. And the cognitive challenge is pitched at the right level to engage the intellect, if not the aesthetics.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 2 (M-Z)


Pedagogy: Derived from the Greek for ‘to lead’, pedagogy is a teacher-centred approach to educational activities in online and face-to-face environments.

I know that sounds redundant but think about it. Oh sure, college teaches you about such things as; cognitive load, pedagogy/andragogy, neuropsychology, and adult learning principles and that’s all well and good. Displaying courage takes guts.

The Sun has Risen on Learning Experience Design


Does this sound familiar? Margaret Weigel, from Six Red Marbles , defines LXD as “a synthesis of Instructional Design, educational pedagogy, neuroscience, social sciences, design thinking, and User Experience Design.” Traditional Instructional Design is dated – advances in cognitive science are consistently showing that learning doesn’t happen through instruction but through experiences.

2016 – 9 Trends on the eLearning Landscape


Experts and mainstream learners can’t deny the success of gamification in enhancing human cognition. Adaptive and competency-based programs are not new to pedagogy. The term “big data” is as big and humongous as it sounds. How can eLearning developers create programs to satisfy the growing and unique needs of learners? Every year TalentLMS comes up with a revolutionary list of eLearning processes and procedures for eLearning development.

Why yesterday’s skills and development strategies aren’t enough to survive today’s digital transformation

Digital literacy involves more than the mere ability to use software or operate a digital device; it includes a large variety of complex cognitive, motor, sociological, and emotional skills, which users need in order to function effectively in digital environments [8]. we need to change how we teach as well as what we teach if we are to engage learners — moving from didactic to constructivist pedagogy.

How to Effectively Shift to Online Teaching: The Ultimate Guide

According to Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock , humanized online learning “supports the non-cognitive components of learning and creates a culture of possibility for more students.” Up until the early 2000s, course quality was determined by examining course content, pedagogy, and learning outcomes.
