Lately I’ve been thinking about the spacing effect. Over the years I’m sure we’ve all encountered phrases such as distributed learning , spaced repetition , retrieval practice and variations thereof; but it has become apparent to me that many of us conflate these terms.

3 Instructional Design Theories

LearnDash

It is becoming increasingly more important that we create learning experiences that “work”, and this is becoming more difficult each passing year as courses compete for the learner’s attention. One such choice is which theory of instructional design is ideal: Constructivism. In constructivism, the learner is in control of their own learning. In the online learning space these means providing them with a degree of freedom over the learning process.

Three Ways Technology is Changing the Learning Space (Plus One)

Learningtogo

Most of us in the learning profession pride ourselves on being comfortable with technology. Whenever a new tool is available, we’re ready to give it a try, eager to adopt the latest way to help people learn. A lot of those cool things we’re so excited about in theory get pushed aside.

Active learning spaces

Learning with 'e's

Recently I wrote about collaborative learning spaces , and argued that we are entering unfamiliar territory. The boundaries of informal and formal spaces have blurred significantly, as have the boundaries between the real and the virtual. It appears that it no longer matters where learning occurs, as long as it is meaningful. Some might argue that learning that is situated is the most powerful. All of these aspects of learning are active.

Throughout the programme of initial teacher education, our specialist computing and ICT students are constantly creating blogs, videos and other digital representations of their learning. So here's another batch for you: The question the students had to address on this occasion was: 'How can psychological and pedagogical theories be applied to create effective learning spaces?' Clearly, the word 'space' can be extended to beyond the walls of the traditional classroom.

Teachers should be the architects of learning spaces (Wheeler, 2015, p 102).

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

In turn, teachers enthusiastically transformed themselves into facilitators , guiding and coaching the participants to inquire, explore, discover and even generate new learnings. Yes, workplace learning has thankfully become more constructivist and even connectivist over time, but we all know that instructivism is still alive and well. Why, in the midst of ever-advancing learning theory and progressive instructional design, does such rampant instructivism persist?

What is learning?

I was in a meeting with a prospective PhD candidate today and the conversation inevitably led to learning. He pointed out that in his lterature reviews he had uncovered a bewildering number of different, and often opposing learning theories. He was clearly impressed if not a little phased by the huge array of concepts and ideas that theorists had developed to try to explain what it means when we learn something. That's why I want to ask the questions: What is learning?

Someone applying pedagogical theory to a classroom full of professionals might find that their efforts read as child’s play. As it turns out, there’s an art and a science to the way adults learn.

New pedagogies?

Learning with 'e's

Most new technologies, particularly handheld devices, lend themselves more to student led learning than they do to teacher led education. We need a new set of pedagogies (and we also need to know how these can be supported with theory) if we are to maximise the impact of technology on education. In my 2015 book I wrote about ' new wine ' (technology) being forced into 'old wineskins' (conservative learning spaces and ideas) and warned of the inevitable failures.
