Taxonomy of Learning Theories

E-Learning Provocateur

Taxonomy. To clear some of the obfuscation that surrounds learning theory, I have developed the following Taxonomy of Learning Theories. This taxonomy identifies key theories that apply to workplace learning, categorises them according to common properties, and illustrates the relationships among them. I hope that this taxonomy, along with the corresponding notes below, will assist you in using learning theory to inform your instructional design decisions.

Applying The Basics Of Bloom’s Taxonomy In e-learning

Wizcabin

One of the approaches to delivering the right training is by applying Bloom’s taxonomy in e-learning. Bloom’s taxonomy is an old concept that has been in existence since 1956 purposely for traditional classroom training. One of the roles of Bloom’s Taxonomy in e-learning is to deliver a course learning objective. As an educator, I’m sure you know one or two things about Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Bloom’s Taxonomy and Online Learning

Growth Engineering

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a concept you’ll come across pretty quickly once you start exploring the world of learning. Although you’ll normally see it in the context of teaching children, Bloom’s Taxonomy applies to learning at all levels. Where does Bloom’s Taxonomy come in? Bloom’s Taxonomy is a list of verbs that you should be using for learning objectives in each step. If your LMS has social functionalities, you can unlock opportunities for informal learning.

Blooms Taxonomy: The Science of Learning Objectives – Part 3

We have also seen the first four levels of the cognitive domain of Bloom’s taxonomy, which provides the basis for describing the desired performance of the learner after completing the course, i.e. Remembering, Understanding, Applying and Analyzing levels. At this level, the learner must be able to make assessments about the information learned in the training program. Social Media Policy Training. Social Media Policy Training.

We have also seen the first two levels of the cognitive domain of Bloom’s taxonomy, which provide the basis for describing the desired performance of the learner after completing the course, i.e. Remembering and Understanding levels. The learners, at this level, must be able to analyze the information acquired through the training program. sales training, product training, service technician training, software training, safety training, and social media policy training.

Motivation is More Important Than Information

Association eLearning

Motivation > Information”. Why Motivation > Information. On the other hand, motivated people who don’t have the information they need try to find it. Most Training Doesn’t Address Motivation, It Addresses Information. If root cause analysis reveals that a business’ employees “just don’t care,” all the information and training in the world won’t improve their job performance. It’s pretty easy to give people information.

In this post, we will look at Bloom’s taxonomy, which provides the basis for defining the performance aspect of learning objectives accurately. Dr. Bloom developed a taxonomy of learning objectives for each of these domains. Over the next few weeks, we will take a closer look at the taxonomy for each of these domains. sales training, product training, service technician training, software training, safety training, and social media policy training.

Social and Semantic Web

Yesterday I attended the Social Web incubator Bar Camp of the W3C , focusing on issues in web support for social media. The issue on the table is what sorts of standards might be necessary or desirable to support social networking on the web in interoperable ways. One statement that resonated was a comparison between the social web and social networks as being analogous to open space versus silos. Tags: social technology

Theory-informed design tips

E-Learning Provocateur

In my previous article , I proposed a Taxonomy of Learning Theories to organise a few of the myriad of theories into some semblance of order, and to assist instructional designers in using theory to inform their work. In this article, I go one step further by listing specific, practical instructional design tips that are informed by those theories. If you have your own theory-informed design tips, I’d love you to share them with me!

Folksonomies, memes and misunderstanding

Learning with e's

It all started with a message on Twitter from @stephendale who stated: "A taxonomist: One who organizes information in ways that makes sense to content providers, rather than content users." I responded (as you do) with my own version: "A folksonomist: one who organises information in ways that make sense to his/her own community of practice or interest." Taxonomies are imposed, but folksonomies are democratic. Tags: Folksonomy delicious meme taxonomy viral Twitter

Retrieval Practice & Bloom’s Taxonomy: Do Students Need Fact Knowledge Before Higher Order Learning? Although fact quizzes were beneficial for fact learning, they did not facilitate higher order learning, contrary to popular intuition based on Bloom’s taxonomy. First, students may have been unaware that information on fact quizzes was related to final higher order tests, thus they did not transfer their knowledge without explicit instructions to do so.

It is, however, important to note that the behaviorist school of thought is almost entirely dependent on teacher/instructor input and views the learner as a passive recipient of information. Cognitivism also differs from behaviorism by acknowledging that learners process and encode information in different ways. Collaborative problem-solving, discussion-based activities, and peer-to-peer teaching are ideal activity formats that enable social interactions that enhance learning.
