Learning Design Perspectives: SAM and ADDIE

Learning Design Perspectives:  SAM and ADDIE | Agile Learning |

The author pointed says that no model (old or new) will prevent ‘boring, lifeless training.’   Can the [classic] ADDIE model be enhanced?  Absolutely. 


The essential differences in these models, including what’s captured in Allen’s SAM process, is to make the model less linear and to include feedback loops within the process for regular look backs, particularly to the data from the analysis phase. 

The problem with these models, including SAM, is that they seem to require redundancy.  There are certainly instances when such redundancy is not necessary. 

... the ADDIE model was [not] designed to be a strictly linear process anyway...

[The author]  ...prefers this cyclic visualization of ADDIE to better show the interactions between the phases.

From the comments:  " Is SAM similar to Agile and ADDIE similar to Waterfall, as in software development?

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This thoughtful article and  comments help in getting a perspective on any model past and present.  Commenter Karen offers that “pure Agile” approaches do not work for all projects.  She mentions  “AgileFall” as a combination of approaches.  

She also suggests that a combo of SAM and ADDIE will emerge, keeping ADDIE’s structure and proven methods while incorporating SAM’s iterative approach. ~  Deb

A Personalized Learning Model - to Guide Education Technology Investments

A Personalized Learning Model - to Guide Education Technology Investments | Agile Learning |

Most of our education technology investments involve some combination of improving the state of practice in "What Don't I Know" - "How Do I Learn This?" and "How Did I Do?"

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This is part 3 of a 3 series set of short, clear blog posts advocating for adaptive learning with feedback.   The author offers precise definitions of the elements.

These are useful concepts in the series, especially the problem of the bell curve in Part 1, which I'll address soon in my Talent & Performance Development curation stream.
