Clear about the concept

Clark Quinn

It got interesting when the speaker decided to link CBE to Universal Design for Learning (UDL). For learning. To start, the argument was, you should make the rationale for the learning in multiple ways. There was a brief mention of something like ‘learning styles’, but while now wary, I was ready to let it go. And here the slide explicitly said ‘learning styles’ and used VARK. design meta-learning

John Medina in his keynote address at the eLearning Guild November 2008 conference talked about how the fundamentals of how a person learns do not change decade on decade – in fact, it is an evolutionary process. However, our knowledge of this learning process is very far from complete. Mobility and Learning. I mmersive Learning.

Xyleme

We may have all been drinking the same cool-aid, but at the IMS Global Learning Consortium Learning Impact Conference in Toronto, there was a meeting of the minds. LTI (Learning Tool Interoperability) in particular has cracked the LMS open. The learning tools that were previously only native to the LMS are now are externalized from the LMS, and enabled as cloud-based “tools.” Individualized Learning.

You’ve Been Learning All Wrong or What I learned from “Make It Stick: the Science of Successful Learning”

Pract.us

Make learning stick with challenging study techniques. Everything you know about learning is wrong. McDaniel explain in their book, Make It Stick: the Science of Successful Learning , a lot of our most commonly employed strategies for learning have proven ineffective in research. And some unintuitive learning techniques yield better results. We’re doing learning wrong. The book stresses two main points: You may think you’re learning when you’re not.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process. As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. To make matters worse, for learners, the sole point of access to learning content has been the LMS. Mash-ups and on-demand publishing.

Learning with people, not technology

This morning I revisited the delightful story of how people learn to do their jobs at New Seasons Market , a chain of nine natural food stores in Portland, Oregon. New Seasons exemplifies taking a non-training alternative to workplace learning. That New Seasons is a people-oriented business echoes in their approach to learning. New hires receive a brief orientation and are then let loose to learn by walking around and asking questions.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Cognitive Flexibility Theory & Multiple Representations

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. From the CFT vantage, multiple representations is not about providing the same information in a different format (the learning styles approach), but rather presenting different perspectives on that information. Way back in May when I first posted this I was coming at the concept of using multiple representations as a way to address different "learning styles."

The survival of higher education (3): The Social Web

Here social media were used to connect people, enabling them to collaborate together in project work, small group learning and online discussions. The Social Web promotes collaboration Collaborative forms of learning are becoming increasingly popular methods of adult education, because they involve all students in the process of learning. One of the most popular activities on our wiki based learning programmes was called ‘goldmining’.

Learning apps. Branon Learning Management System App Stores Bob Little Apps, Not Courses Inge de Waard Augmented reality moves towards augmented learning with easy tools: Wikitude , Layar , ARToolKit. Situated learning (learning within context in a community of practice) grows thanks to augmented mobile reality. Virtual classrooms and smart-boards are used in a more student-centered way (not putting all the attention to one person up-front=bad).
