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. 

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 curator insight, November 18, 2013 10:14 AM

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

ghbrett's insight:

Here is a new startup, Versal. It is an Online Learning authoring tool with modules that allow an author, teacher, trainer, or anyone to build "courses". Currently it an open platform.  I'm sure that if what they suggest is true, then it could be a model for a MOOC or online education platform. It was just announced on Google+ today with it's own circle and moderated communnity. The circle conversation can be found at: http://bit.ly/13yfk9y

 

I will be curious to hear how this application will scale up. Also, how it is currently managed and will this lead to another freemium web application that gets you hooked and then charges as your repertoire grows. Or when your audience expands beyond a few tens of participant to a few thousands. We'll see.

UNESCO Mobile Learning Publications | United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Today there are over six billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce. This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere." from source: http://www.unesco.org/

This page includes four Mobile Learning Publications with numerous links to region specific content on mobile learning. Plus there are links to extensive bibliographic resources about mobile learning. This page is a great starting point for anyone looking into mobile learning and its impact on diverse communities of learners. A very worth while read and bookmark.

Instructional Design Documents

Instructional Design Documents | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"...“DesignDoc” is a formal outline of what will be developed for a course, as in an Instructional Design Document. This document can be used to map out what will be developed and is often used as an agreement of work to be done before development starts. My experience has been that every workplace has its own version, requirements, and format, but the elements are pretty consistent." -- from source: http://mvenable.wordpress.com/

 

Note: This is another posting from Dr. Venable's blog. Although it is from way back in 2010 the information is still quite relevant. She presents an extensive outline of the elements mentioned above. Plus she includes links to resources and reading materials that support her check list for developing Instructional Design projects. It is a good starting point for new instructional designers. and may provide new insights for more experienced instructional designers.

Future Trends in Technology and Education

Future Trends in Technology and Education | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Future Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report. It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies. Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.

 

Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines. As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact. FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance."

Bryan Alexander is not only one of the leading Thought Leaders of Technology for Education, Training, and Research; he is one of the most scholarly, well grounded, sharing people I know. His work is based on fact with a dab of opinion from others as well as himself. His eyes, ears, and haptic senses are sensitive to opportunities and trends. Bryan's voice asks the difficult but important questions. Then his synthesis of this input is shared openly with us. He is an essential part of the future. That is why you should quickly take advantage of his offer to share his new monthly report "Future Trends in Technology and Education."

I get that, Shawnna. The way I see it, recognition of one's own failure should be a cause for rejoicing, because the failure points towards success. Public acknowledgment of failure makes one human and approachable. There's no one I trust less than a self-proclaimed expert.

This article really brought to light what being globally connected can do for not just artists, but curators as well and how it can be used to create an entirely new type of exhibition. It also describes a new age of art that infuses the way we use technology, especially within social media networks.

This is a good article about shifts from traditional modes of learning and training to come in line with emerging trends in teaching and training. It presents a wholistic concept for how a teacher can combine analog and digital processes and concetps to ensure successful experiences for the learner.

How to Evaluate Learning: Kirkpatrick Model for the 21st Century—A Revision | Social Learning Blog

How to Evaluate Learning: Kirkpatrick Model for the 21st Century—A Revision | Social Learning Blog | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Even though many Learning and Development organizations find it a challenge to prove training’s effect beyond how learners react to the training and whether they have learned the training content, senior management and business stakeholders are more and more interested in metrics that show the bottom line.

 

According to Donald L. Kirkpatrick’s Revised “Four Levels of Evaluation” model, what we need to do is find out what success looks like in the eyes of these senior managers and stakeholders and let them define their expectations for the training program. Then we need to identify specific metrics to demonstrate and deliver on those expectations.

 

For those of you who are not familiar with the original Four Levels, this is what they are:
> Level 1. Reaction: To what degree did the learners react favorably to the training experience?
> Level 2. Learning: To what degree did the learners acquire the intended knowledge, skills, and attitudes as a result of the training?
> Level 3. Behavior: To what degree did the learners apply what they learned back on the job?
> Level 4. Results: To what degree did the targeted outcomes occur as a result of the training experience and follow-up reinforcement?" - from source: http://www.dashe.com/blog/training-development/

NOTE: Assessment and success factors are usually difficult to identify well. This article with the accompanying chart does a good job in mapping out a process for evaluating the succes factors and ratings of Instructional Design. - ghbrett

"If technology continues to evolve at the current rate, the 2015 workplace could look quite different from today's office spaces -- and may even involve less traditional office space with the rise of telecommuting. From a company's hiring process to sharing knowledge with employees, technology has the ability to change the way we all work.
