Clark Quinn

In the process of looking at ways to improve the design of courses, the starting point is good objectives. SO drilling in the exact meanings of words is valuable, as an example. We then need good processes, so I’ve talked to a couple of educational institutions doing competencies, to see what could be learned. design strategy

Clark Quinn

And part of it is in the knowledge and skills of the designers, but it’s also in the process. ADDIE isn’t inherently linear, certainly as it has evolved, but in many ways it makes it easy to make it a one-pass process. And they should support contextualizing the practice activity.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

The one draw back to networked learning is that while we have managed to advance conversation on the fragmentation of learning so that it is not a cohesive whole created solely by the instructor, we have not yet advanced the process of centring or stitching together fragmented parts into cohesive wholes for individuals. Latent Capacity.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

There are times when fact remembering is needed, such as medical vocabulary (my go-to example). You need to process the models to help them be comprehended, and use them in context to make decisions with the consequences providing feedback. And it occurs to me that there could be some pushback. What does that mean? Make sense? desig

Social Formal – it’s the processing!

Clark Quinn

In thinking about the benefits of adding social to formal learning for a presentation I’ll be giving, I realized that the main reason to extend social activities into formal learning is for the additional processing it provides.
