Megan Kopke's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:09 PM

the importance of icons and symbols in "mind maps" or outlines, webs, anything like that.  symbols can have a much broader meaning and definition, bringing ideas and memories up quicker than a vague word or phrase.

This is pretty nifty. You can export as a Word or PDF. I'd like it better if they also provided an embed code so you could place it into your class website, but you can't have everything!

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, October 5, 2015 10:52 PM

Because I'm a word geek, I love crossword puzzles.  I also enjoy using them as warm-ups or reviews with students.  Once students get to know how they work, I have them create the puzzles for classmates.  The fact this site doesn't require a registration, user name and password makes it even better!

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy). Despite the fact that Knowles' adult learning theory assumptions and principles were introduced in the 1980's, each can be utilized today to help eLearning professionals create more meaningful learning experiences for adult learners.

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:09 PM

In order for adult learners to be actively involved in their own learning, they must feel (and know) that they have a voice in regards to the content and delivery of their coursework. The degree to which learners determine how a course will play out is, of course, the prerogative of the instructor, but I think instructors who actively gauge the preparedness and receptivity of their adult learners are liable to get ones who are more engaged and grateful.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:13 PM

Scooped from Amos's Scoop.it page- Adult learning theory is very important to keep in mind when designing learning strategies for adult education. This is a very helpful resource to easily reference when designing instruction, in particular I would highlight the PURPOSE behind each module and activity and remembering that motivation is key with adult learners.

Samantha Patterson 7's curator insight, March 16, 2015 9:05 PM

This is a good article about adult learning with eLearning. It provides information about Knowles' 5 adult learning theory assumptions that can be translated to modern day eLearning experiences.
