New wine, new wineskins

New methods cannot be fully explained or justified by old theories. My interpretation is this: new societal needs require new methods of teaching; new methods of teaching need new theories - theories for the information age.

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.

How complex is learning?

Learning with e's

The result is a multitude of contradictory theories and explanations on what learning is, how it happens and what teachers need to do to optimise it. Consciousness , intuition, belief, creativity and emotional engagement are all peculiarly human traits, and none of them are rule bound.

Digital age learning

Praxis makes perfect

It''s not as commonly referred to in the educational field as it should be. My explanation is that praxis is at the nexus - the overlap - between theory and practice. Praxis is the essence of what happens when theory is applied to practice, and can be simplified in this Venn diagram.

The kids are all right

Learning with e's

Too often we gather to discuss education, to expound on learning theories and to congratulate ourselves for our pedagogical prowess, and yet we miss the crucial element, the context which should be central to everything we do. How will technology supplement and support these processes?

#40years of educational technology: Computers

Learning with e's

It's clear to me, watching the development of technology from my early days in the 1970s, it has developed from a set of tools that were designed to support the teacher, to a range of tools that enable everyone to learn.

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

Learning Visions

I have never taken a class in pedagogy. I have never taken a course in adult learning theory. After a few years, I got involved in an IT initiative (then it was called MIS) -- designing a new software application to support our call center business. We had a novelist, turned video pro, who was our most creative instructional designer. This is how I support my family. So lets get the tools and information out there to support folks like me.

Praxis makes perfect

Maslow, technology and learning

Learning with e's

It's creative and it's often thought provoking. How much more could we say about the uses of technology when we place them up against a pre-digital age theory such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model? Does technology offer no support whatsoever for physiological needs?

Learning pathways
