Learning Design Perspectives: SAM and ADDIE

Learning Design Perspectives:  SAM and ADDIE | Distance Ed Archive | 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. 


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?

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

5 Characteristics Of Global Learning

5 Characteristics Of Global Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"This post is more about the characteristics of that kind of approach to learning. As globalization becomes more and more inevitable, understanding where we’re drifting might help us make adjustments as we go, yes? The characteristics are numerous and we could almost start anywhere, but five broad characteristics appear below.
1. Local –> Global pattern
2. Self-Directed
3. Iterative & Spiraled
4. Social & Digital
5. Drive By New Actuators"

ghbrett's insight:

While this post is brief, the points are well made. Another thought is "Global" as I understand it here is trans-national, that is, it is crossing international boundaries. I think that Organizations and Agencies that deal with non-traditional students, staff or employees world wide should consider these five elements as well.
