Connected pedagogy: Shared minds

Learning with 'e's

I call this connected pedagogy. One essential element of connected pedagogy is communication. This can be shared in numerous formats, including text, images, sound and video, all of which are easily disseminated to potentially huge audiences through social media. Connected pedagogy also relies on establishing an environment that is characterised by meaningful engagement, participation, self expression, problems solving and peer-evaluation.

Music, learning and pedagogy

When everyone plays at the same time, the usual result is cacophony - which is quite literally defined as a harsh, discordant mixture of sounds.

How The 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 2


All the arts, whether painted, danced, performed in pixels, in sound, or silence, necessarily require learners to hold two worlds in mind at the same time and then bring their powers of critique and reason to see into the aesthetic, economic, and social implications reverberating from this fictional-reality effect.

X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design

Clark Quinn

That’s the point of having products of activities, at least reflection , so it sounds very much is in synergy. I frankly want an activity-based pedagogy and curriculum to support all of these models. Understanding by design is a design approach that works backwards from goals, and if you set your outcomes on performance, and then align activities to require that performance, you have a good chance of impacting pedagogy, and learning, in meaningful ways.

In this third of four vodcasts, Brad Haseman, Executive Vice President of Kadenze, Inc. discusses the distinctive effects arts-led learning is having on online learning design. Here he introduces the Emergence, Coherence, and Artistic Redundancy effects. You can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. This third vodcast introduces three of the effects which artists and arts educators bring to processes of learning online.

Connectivism Blog > Pedagogy First? tags: connectivism , context , pedagogy , technology. George Siemens argues that rather than starting with pedagogy for making instructional decisions, we should start with context. He recommends choosing the technology first, then the pedagogy to match, partly because “sound pedagogy&# is an ambiguous target. Pedagogy should not even be a consideration during the planning stages of technology use.

Andragogy in the Modern E-Learning Setting


Andragogy vs. Pedagogy. In comparison, the word pedagogy , is also of Greek origin but means leading children. These are the five assumptions, while the four principles suggested in 1984 by the US educator sound reasonable even today: Adults need to be involved in the planning and evaluation of their instruction. eLearning adult elearning androgogy elearning for adults elearning localization elearning translation Pedagogy

Since the 1960s, he articulated a distinction between pedagogy (the teaching of children) and andragogy (the teaching of adults). In many ways, Knowles’ description of pedagogy approximates instructivism, while his description of andragogy approximates constructivism. But the science doesn’t matter because the assumptions sound right. To be fair, Knowles evolved his of views of pedagogy and andragogy.

Well, firstly, this sounds as though I am deliberately trying to hide behind technology, which is patently untrue. No, you can be assured that if I use any technology with my students, it is for a clearly thought through, and logical reason that supports good pedagogy. They also use them to capture images and sounds during the lecture for reference later on. Twitter continues to be a versatile tool for good pedagogy.

The Grail of Effective and Engaging Learning Experiences

Branching scenarios are powerful approximations to this by showing consequences in context but with limited replay, and so are constructivist and problem-based learning pedagogies. This may sound daunting, but with practice, and some shortcuts, this is doable. For example, Socratic Arts has a powerful online pedagogy that leverages media and a constructivist pedagogy in a relatively simple framework.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

The popular sequence of events that I have recounted is often represented pictorially as a gradient, accompanied by that ubiquitous table comparing various aspects of the three pedagogies. Sure, the gradient reflects a wonderful growth of ideas, but I think it’s a trap to conclude that the latter pedagogies supersede the former. All three pedagogies build on one another to provide a rounded theoretical toolset for the modern professional to exploit.

Adult learning theories for instructional designers: Andragogy


Andragogy – the grown-up cousin of pedagogy. In 1970, he published the first edition of his popular book, The Modern Practice of Adult Education: Andragogy Versus Pedagogy. Lately, I’ve seen a lot of the focus moving towards technology rather than learning itself.

Tech Limits?

So the first tool is based upon a really sound pedagogy that is consonant with my activity-based learning approach. A couple of times last year, firms with some exciting learning tools approached me to talk about the market. And in both cases, I had to advise them that there were some barriers they’d have to address. That was brought home to me in another conversation, and it makes me worry about the state of our industry.

And this sounds like a good thing, with some caveats. And maybe then there’s a learning architecture as well – where just as an architect designs the basic look and feel of the halls & rooms and the engineers build them – that designs the curriculum approach and the pedagogy, but the learning engineers follow through on those principles for developing courses. Last week I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural meeting of the Global Learning Council.

Heutagogy, Self-Directed Learning and Complex Work

ID Reflections

Pedagogy had always established an unequal relation between the teacher and the taught. Even instructionally sound programs based on the principles of Andragogy have failed to meet the needs of the hour. Andragogy stepped in to rectify this and foster awareness about how adults learned. However, the premise was that there was someone doing the "teaching" so to speak.

During the course you will learn the key differences between the generations and how those differences can be bridged through sound instructional design techniques. You will also learn how to leverage the gadgets, games and gizmos of these students to create pedagogy that meets their needs and transfers knowledge from teacher to student. Recently, I've been working with the folks at Performance Learning Systems to convert Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning into an online course.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 2 (M-Z)


Pedagogy: Derived from the Greek for ‘to lead’, pedagogy is a teacher-centred approach to educational activities in online and face-to-face environments. In eLearning, pedagogy involves selecting the best methods to convey information to learners. It is created by surrounding the user of the VR system with an environment, sound and other stimuli that provide an engrossing environment of immersion, imagination and interaction to increase engagement.
