Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Theory vs. Application in Instructional Design: One Academics View

Learning Visions

Tuesday, February 12, 2008 Theory vs. Application in Instructional Design: One Academics View A long time ago, I decided I was much better at the practical side of things than the theoretical. but rather because he brings up some interesting points about the disconnect between the theory of instructional design in academia and the actual practice of it. See what John has to say in Instructional Design and Academia -- Where Theory and Practice RARELY Meet.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Learning Styles as Fortune Telling

Learning Visions

As a practical person, I tend to avoid theory. But in my quest for an informal M.Ed, Ive got to get into theory a bit, right? I would also add that learning styles may change from topic to topic and level of expertise. The EduTech Wiki also has a good overview on learning style theory.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

I recently came across this description, which fits well: “A PLN is an aspect of (the larger professional network), where the individual has a group of people within his or her virtual professional network, and the relationship with each is based upon a common interest, collaborative project or research. Virtually every individual in my network has a variety of interests, talents, and areas of expertise.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Memoirs of an "Instructional Designer"

Learning Visions

I have never taken a course in adult learning theory. I had expertise. We had a novelist, turned video pro, who was our most creative instructional designer. This is my expertise, even without the fancy letters after my name. Of course, I am expected to provide my ID perspective/expertise to the other team members but, I will never have to figure out how to create a graphic element or program an interaction.

Constructing learning in the digital age

Learning with 'e's

In a sense, an algorithm has much in common with a schema, particularly because both have rules and sequences of instruction that can be followed to achieve a specific goal. Jerome Bruner developed ZPD theory to include the concept of scaffolded learning. It maintains a focus on personal construction of meaning through exploration and experimentation, and relies less on social contexts than ZPD theory.

Three things

Learning with 'e's

His Zone of Proximal Development theory has been central to our understanding of how we learn in social contexts. Yet in recent years, with the proliferation and equalisation of knowledge and the strengthening of social connections through digital media, new theories such as connectivism and paragogy have emerged to challenge the central place of ZPD in contemporary pedagogical theory. There are three things we need to know about learning for this generation.

Vygotsky, Piaget and YouTube

Learning with 'e's

Where once, experts had a monopoly on knowledge and expertise, now anyone it seems can access content that will teach them. According to his Zone of Proximal Development theory (ZPD), whether that person be a teacher, peer or parent, children learn more extensively within a social context. ZPD theory ran counter to other developmental theories of the time. The world is changing, and it''s largely due to the proliferation of technology.

Design for life

Learning with 'e's

This is number 30 in my series on learning theories. I''m working through the alphabet of psychologists and theorists, providing a brief overview of each theory, and how it can be applied in education. This should not so much be considered as a theory, but is a useful perspective on design and human perception. The Theory An examination of the work of JJ Gibson, as previously documented on this blog , shows that people perceive affordances in any object.

Excavating knowledge

Learning with 'e's

Photo by Steve Wheeler Theories of learning can be useful in helping us to understand the possibilities of learning, and also to guide teachers in their pedagogical practice. But to which theories should we subscribe? Furthermore, in the digital age where every aspect of our lives is governed by technology, do the theories from the last century still have relevance? Jerome Bruner developed ZPD theory to include the concept of scaffolded learning.

Connected learning

Learning with 'e's

There are many theories and constructs that can inform us of the nature and potential impact of connected learning. In a sense, an algorithm has much in common with a schema, particularly because both have rules and sequences of instruction that can be followed to achieve a specific goal. Jerome Bruner developed ZPD theory to include the concept of scaffolded learning. Image from PXhere Connected learning is currently a popular phrase in education.

PLN or CoP?

Learning with 'e's

Communities of Practice are described as groups of people who share a common interest and can be instrumental as a network within which learning can take place because of the critical mass of contributions from the group''s members. Yet if we examine the theories behind the two concepts, we see there are some subtle differences. Secondly, according to Lave and Wenger , for a CoP to exist, there needs to be a domain of expertise.

Teaching artistry

Learning with 'e's

Normally I'm found teaching a session on educational theory or psychology, or information and communication technologies. The drawing session was a part of our BA degree in Education Studies, and the module we were teaching, 'Creativity in Education.' which encourages students to explore through embodied practice the theoretical and practical relationships between education and creativity. I taught my first art lesson today.
