Taxonomy of Learning Theories

E-Learning Provocateur

Academia is teeming with learning theories. It can be quite a challenge for the modern learning professional to identify an appropriate learning theory, draw practical ideas from it, and apply it to their daily work. Which theory do you choose? How does it relate to other theories? Taxonomy. To clear some of the obfuscation that surrounds learning theory, I have developed the following Taxonomy of Learning Theories. Schema theories .

Cognitive Learning: How to Use It, Benefits and Examples

Academy of Mine

What is Cognitive Learning Theory? Cognitive Learning Theory is a hypothesis about the way individuals learn new information that looks past whether a student got an answer right or wrong and instead examines how the student arrived at that answer.

Five Current Learning Theories. Learning theories unpack complex cognitive processes and provide useful mental models for educators to structure and design courses around, while also providing insights on best practice during and after learning experiences.

Create your own Learning Theory

Wikipedia defines Learning Theory as “Learning theories are conceptual frameworks that describe how information is absorbed, processed, and retained during learning. Learning brings together cognitive, emotional, and environmental influences and experiences for acquiring, enhancing, or making changes in one’s knowledge, [.].

Bloom's Revised Taxonomy: Cognitive processes and levels of knowledge matrix

Big Dog, Little Dog

Bloom''s Revised Taxonomy (Remember - Understand - Apply - Analyze - Evaluate - Create) not only improved the usability of it (using action words), but perhaps also made it more accurate. While Bloom''s original cognitive taxonomy did mention three levels of knowledge or products that could be processed (shown below), they were not discussed very much and remained one-dimensional. Principles are the basic building blocks of causal models or theoretical models (theories).

In an age of digital media, where learners create, remix and share their own content, an overhaul of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy was long overdue. Yesterday I posted a critique of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy and argued that it is outmoded in the digital age. Unfortunately, Lorin Anderson's revised model (2001 in conjunction with Krathwohl) of the taxonomy is not as great an improvement on the original model as its adherents might claim. 2005) Bloom's Taxonomy.

Why Instructional Theory Must be Married to New Technology

Training Industry

Technology advancements do not invalidate the work of pioneers like the cognitive scientist Benjamin Bloom who developed a taxonomy that helps instructional designers classify instructional objectives and goals, and derive the appropriate measures of learned capability. There is no shortage of optimism among learning professionals about the positive impact that today's new technologies are having on the learning and development profession.

Behavioral objectives got another boost when in 1956, Bloomberg Benjamin and his colleagues developed the “Taxonomy of EducationalObjectives”.

Instructional Design has come a long way.

How microlearning can result in deep learning

Classical philosophy posits that any meaningful learning must combine an existential knowledge of the self alongside the cognitive domain. Microlearning achieves deeper retention by using short bursts of targeted learning to optimize cognitive load into the working memory.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

Psychologists and educators started researching the theory of instruction. Skinner’s Theory of Operant Conditioning (1958) states that learning results in changes in overt behavior. Reinforcement is a key element of his theory. The theory led educators to think that human learning can be enhanced if reinforcements are carefully controlled, to elicit the desired behavior. Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain was published in 1956.
