How the 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 4

From ‘learning to improve your kissing technique’ to ‘learning to train your brain to be smarter’, as though all learning involves the architecture of human cognition in the same ways. Yet we know that this cannot be true; learning to ‘memorise knowledge’ for example, makes different cognitive demands on trainee teachers than learning how to ‘activate the artistry of others’, a key capability for teaching the arts and design.

Presence Pedagogy: Needs Some More Dimensions

Kapp Notes

The other day, I discovered an interesting article, Presence Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning in a 3D Virtual Immersive World , which describes an educational approach for conducting a learning event in a virtual immersive environment. As the abstract to the article indicates: Presence Pedagogy is a way of teaching and learning that is grounded in social constructivist theory.

How our learning theories shape how we use technology for learning

I read a paper called Perspectives on learning and technology: A review of theoretical perspectives "This paper provides a review of literature pertaining to theoretical references on educational practice and technology from perspectives of learning theories of the 20th and 21st centuries." A learning theory (or theories) helps understand how people learn, thereby assisting educators, trainers and facilitators reflect on their educational practices.

Theories for the digital age: Self regulated learning

Learning with 'e's

Personal technologies are thought to enable self-regulation at a number of levels, including the ‘object’ and ‘meta’ levels of learning, supporting maintenance, adaptation, monitoring and control of a variety of higher level cognitive processes (Nelson & Narens, 1990). In many ways, heutagogy is aligned to other digital age theories, in that it places an importance on ‘learning to learn’, and the sharing rather than hoarding of that knowledge.

For a more subjective topic, like political theory, you might first list all the key concepts you’d expect a student to be able to explain by the end of your course, as well as the critical thinking skills you’d expect them to be able to employ. Then you could devise an exam which includes all the necessary topics while simultaneously testing the students’ cognitive functions in their explanation of those terms.

As politely as I could, I explained to him that making his students sit through a full 90 minutes of video was not particularly good pedagogy. The first is cognitive load - i.e. the amount of information we can process and absorb through our primary senses; in this case, our audio and visual channels. A closer look at cognitive load theory (Sweller, 1988 ) reveals that human processing relies predominantly on visual and auditory stimuli, but this is limited.

Learning as dialogue

Learning with 'e's

Many of the earlier learning theories place the learner in splendid isolation. From the neo-behaviourist theories of Thorndike, Watson and Skinner, we were led to believe that learners respond to stimuli and make associations between the two, and that these links represent learning. This prompted new approaches in schools that included discovery learning and progressive curricula that neatly reflected Piaget''s stages of cognitive development model.

Connected learning

There are many theories and constructs that can inform us of the nature and potential impact of connected learning. The following some thoughts from a post I originally published in 2015: From a cognitive constructivist perspective, learning is achieved through the twin processes of assimilation and accommodation. The latter implies that new learning is 'bolted onto', or constructed within, existing cognitive structures known as schemas.

Among its approaches, the pedagogy of empathy is one that can be implemented even in simplified elearning solutions. Empathy consists of two dimensions, one emotional and the other cognitive. In order to use empathy as a pedagogical tool, it is imperative that the teacher be interested in the cognitive dimension of this notion, which is, in fact, the dimension on which he or she can intervene.

4 types of navigation flows for micro-learning courses

The main disadvantage of this form of navigation is that it is designed for an academic pedagogy and doesn’t relate well to modern adult learning principles. This is a navigation style based on Social Learning Theory (Bandura, 1971). According to this theory, learning is a cognitive process that takes place in a social context and can occur purely through observation or direct instruction, even in the absence of motor reproduction or direct reinforcement.
