Learning theories map | HOTEL Project

Learning theories map | HOTEL Project | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

This Learning Theories’ Map is a result of the research carried out by WP2 of the EU HOTEL Project led by Richard Millwood from Brunel University.

 

“Learning theory has been a contested scientific field for most of its history, with conflicting contributions from many scientific disciplines, practice and policy positions. With the continuing and disruptive influence of technology on information, knowledge and practice in all sectors of society it is no wonder that innovators, drawn to the interactive potential that computers bring to learning, are challenged by the theoretical basis for their innovations.

Formal education is also a high stakes, culturally & institutionally conservative activity, which serves more than one societal purpose, including:

learner development and fulfilment;child care;preparation for citizenship, parenthood and retirement;preparation for work;selection for jobs.

Even in the higher, informal and professional sectors of education, complexity of education is matched by complexity of learning outcomes which may include:

skills development;knowledge acquisition;improvement in strategic, analytic and creative capacities;attainment of competence;establishment of attitudes and values.

Each of these societal purposes and these learning outcomes demand different approaches and understandings for the theorist and may develop at varying rates or found to be diverse in relation to context, location and culture.”

John Bostock's insight:

Do you find pedagogy and theories of learning confusing? This infographic illustrates why! However, it also helps to bring some order and provide a map of the learning theories landscape - A great starting point for any teacher to explore different ideas about the aims, objectives and methodologies of educational practice.

DigiSkill Network

DigiSkill Network | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The strategic guidelines of Europe 2020 put particular emphasis in strengthening horizontal cooperation and the sharing of experience and good practice among the Member States. It’s really crucial for education to fulfil its role in the knowledge triangle, research and innovation objectives and outcomes need to feed back into education, with teaching and learning underpinned by a strong research base, and with teaching and learning environments developed and improved through greater incorporation of creative thinking and innovative attitudes and approaches. Additionally there is a mainstream of eLearning in national policies for the modernisation of education and training, including in curricula, assessment of learning outcomes and the professional development of teachers and trainers.


According to the OECD survey, teachers have few incentives to improve their teaching, as while the most common types of professional development activity available to them are not the most effective. The majority of teachers would like more professional development (particularly on ICT skills, and student behaviour). It has to be mentioned that education and training play a fundamental role in achieving the ‘Europe 2020’ objectives.


All the above create a great deal of activity to ensure basic ICT skills as part of digital competence and learning to learn skills. Current developments in ICT and Web 2.0 technologies have offered the potential for new services, which has significantly transformed our day-to-day personal and professional activities; bare the potential to do the same for education and training. Known as ICT learning, using such technologies can be as simple as accessing a training timetable online, through very complex as developing virtual communities of practice for sharing and creating knowledge.
