Adult Learners - Learning Styles

Adult Learners - Learning Styles | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"It is accepted that babies enjoy learning through experience, because every exploration is a new experience. As children grow, educators traditionally reduce the amount of learning through experience to the point that few courses in secondary and higher education devote significant time to experiential education. It is now recognized that adult learning is enhanced by hands-on experience that involves adults in the learning process. In addition, adults bring a wealth of experience that must be acknowledged and respected in the training setting."
Robert W. Pike (1989)

"Knowles' Andragogical Model is based on four basic assumptions of adults as learners that distinguish them from children.

 

 

1 Self concept
2. Experience
3. Readiness to learn
4. Orientation to learning."

Califone Releases Speaker to Support Mobile Learning - IT Business Net

"As schools and districts throughout the country continue to introduce mobile computing devices in the classroom, its important to plan for the technology infrastructure to support these new teaching tools.Califone International, Inc., a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of audiovisual and supplemental curriculum products for use in education, today announces the launch of its first speaker developed exclusively for iPad® and iPhone®.

 

The new PA-MBiOS speaker is designed with students in mind, projecting a clear, crisp, classroom-filling sound for improved listening. It enables whole class and group learning activities, and supports tablet and mobile learning initiatives. Educators can use the speaker to enhance iPad® audio from a Google Hangout®, iTunes Radio®, a virtual field trip or a streaming podcast from iTunes U®, to cite a few examples.

The Califone speaker easily connects with all 30-pin iPad, iPhone or iPod models when sitting in the cradle of the docking station (iPad 1-3 models, iPhone models through the 4S and up to third generation iPod models). Current models (iPad 4, iPhone 5 as well as fourth and fifth generation iPods) can be used with a Lightning® connection adaptor (not included). The speaker also connects with Android-based devices and computers through its 3.5mm aux input."

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?

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

The Future of MOOCs

The Future of MOOCs | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"According to the New York Times, 2012 was the year of the MOOC - a massive open online course.  These courses are usually open access and free, and although they don’t usually offer course credit for participants some do offer certifications of completion.  They can be attended by hundreds of thousands of students at the same time who interact in community forums surrounding course materials and resources.  They offer amazing opportunities for those who lack the funding to attend traditional universities, especially those in developing nations.  MOOCs have democratized learning and opened up education to the masses who may now attend and learn from quality courses at elite universities as if they were enrolled"
