Phenomenon-Based Learning with Experience API (xAPI)

The traditional way of learning has started to go through some major reforms. This is happening both in the field of education and in enterprises. Instead of traditional course based learning where users are memorizing ready-given information, today more emphasis is put on finding, understanding and applying information in practice in real world scenarios.

 

Phenomenon-based learning

 

The education system in Finland is said to be one of the best in the world. Yet, last week e.g. Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/28/finland-education-overhaul_n_6958786.html) and Independent

(http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/finland-schools-subjects-are-out-and-topics-are-in-as-country-reforms-its-education-system-10123911.html) wrote about the upcoming educational changes in Finland. Then what is it that has resulted in this transition? The changes are related to a phenomenon-based learning, which as a topic has raised a lot of global discussion recently.

 

The ideology of phenomenon-based learning is to bring learning and teaching closer to practice, rather than focusing on single, disconnected subjects that do not relate to everyday life, or to each other, at all. In the phenomenon-based learning the learners are taught broader topics instead of subjects. The topics can be related to any real life events, which may help the learner in applying the novel know-how better in modern society.

 

Phenomenon-based learning in online education and learning

Arcusys is at the forefront of applying the phenomenon-based learning in online education. Valamis offers a platform for phenomenon-based learning in online learning and implements it into a modular and flexible environment using Experience API (xAPI) and Learning Record Store (LRS). In Valamis, the learners approach learning in a form of a story, which is related to real life working scenarios. While going through the story, the learners themselves do not necessarily recognize which subject each topic of the story is covering. They can e.g. cover subjects such as physics, mathematics and finance within a form of a story about buying a car.

 

In Valamis the learners are not given any particular order for approaching the phenomenon-based learning story. In stead, the learners can proceed in the story depending on which order they find the most interesting for themselves. Always when the learners finish a task, they receive an automated evaluation as well as an evaluation from their teacher. Also, the learners are given a chance for self-evaluation. All the data is saved into a Learning Record Store and the final feedback is formed on the basis of all the recorded data.

 

Measuring impact of phenomenon-based learning

Receiving constructive feedback is a crucial part of learning and development process. Without feedback it is impossible to process and evaluate what has been learned. At the moment, one of the major issues with the phenomenon-based learning is the difficulty of receiving trustworthy analytics of the learning processes.

 

Valamis offers powerful Learning Analytics engine for phenomenon-based learning using the Valamis Learning Record Store. The analytics engine provides a special advantage e.g. when evaluating which sections of the studies should be improved or in which areas particularly the learners need more guidance.

 

Experience API allows tracking the atomic learner experiences and interactions into Learning Record Store. Phenomenon-based learning model creates a structure and solid foundation for this information. The Experience API gives organizations powerful tools for analyzing impact of learning and organization capabilities. By combining xAPI with Valamis, it is possible to receive accurate analytics of the phenomenon-based learning process of individuals as well as of the group of learners. The analytics are in a form of an exquisite concept map, which enables the visual analysis of the learning challenges. The received analytics imply clearly which parts of the study content needs to be improved for future learners.

What Classrooms Can Learn From Informal Learning - TeachThought

What Classrooms Can Learn From Informal Learning - TeachThought | E-learning and On-Line Teaching | Scoop.it
I spent more than 5 years in public school classrooms, both urban and suburban, and while I saw a lot of educators working their behinds off and engaging kids in valuable, essential learning, I also saw a lot of kids that were disenchanted by what school had to offer. After years in the public school system, many of the students that need school the worst had been taught one irrevocable truth: learning was not for them. And not just because school was too hard or too easy, but because it was often at odds with their interests and desires.

And then, in just the past few months, I’ve had my eyes opened to the world of schooling that happens beyond the walls of the traditional brick and mortar education. Suddenly, I saw living rooms, parks, co-ops, libraries, churches, and community centers as steady, stimulating learning environments. I saw parents confidently addressing the educational needs of their children without necessarily having the formal training to do so (my good friend, Becky, is among them). I saw how certain learning methods and perspectives could yield the type of student that regularly scores above the national average on an array of standardized tests and feels empowered as a lifelong learner. But what exactly were these families able to do that was so different? And what could we as public educators borrow from these homeschool classrooms–or any non-traditional or informal learning environment–that would be of benefit in our own? Here are the five things that stand out.

This might come out sounding like learning requires the carrot on a stick but in fact, it's more about making work that might be tedious and based on drill and practice a bit more fun and competitive. Learning requires a much deeper engagement than can in my opinion be achieved with gamification techniques.

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | E-learning and On-Line Teaching | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!
