Beyond the Stilted Webinar: 5 Essential Ingredients For Learning (SPLAT)

Beyond the Stilted Webinar:  5 Essential Ingredients For Learning (SPLAT) | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
I was listening to a fascinating show by Pat Flynn, blogger and podcaster who was interviewing Bryan Kelly from What The Speak on the neuroscience behind great presentations. As I thought about the...

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

So many webinars do NOT follow this handy SPLAT acronym.  Q & A, by "raising your hand" is not the same as "talking is learning."  We have a long ways to go to enable full conversation in webinars.  The current stay is still MUCH more lecture based.  ~  Deb

I consider myself to be an "experienced" educator -- that means I've spent many years in the classroom and I'm "old."  But I've never stopped trying to learn more and to be reflective about what I am doing so that I can improve how I help students learn.  

The five ingredients listed in this blog post are fairly "spot on" in my opinion and my experience.  I would have enjoyed a post like this when I first started my teaching career.  I'm not sure if I would have fully understood all of this initially -- but it would have made it much easier to learn this in the trenches.  

Share this with all of your teaching colleagues -- "experienced" and "new" to the profession...

Fantastic primer on telling stories in business. It doesn't take long but the message is compelling. Shame on you if you went through Shawn's presentation and didn't swear to start telling more stories. It would make life more interesting.

Learning Design Perspectives: SAM and ADDIE

Learning Design Perspectives:  SAM and ADDIE | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

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

Excerpts:

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
