A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Tim Hopper's curator insight, January 4, 2013 2:05 PM

Like this quote.  "Learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn." It is complex because it is emergent and defies being reduced to simple components, but we must keep trying to understand it.  "The journey is the destinaton" as an Eastern philospher once said.

Alan Ovens's comment, January 17, 2013 2:21 AM
Great diagram. We just need to always keep in mind that theories of learning are not theories of teaching. Always "mind the gap" as a voice once said to me as I sat on a train in London.
Sandra Noack's comment, March 8, 2013 9:56 PM

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom. 


Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:19 PM

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.

5 ways online education can keep its students honest | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
As online learning platforms like Coursera, Udacity and edX raise the stakes for students with increased partnerships with traditional universities and credit-bearing classes, here are five technologies that can help them thwart cheating.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 18, 2012 4:16 PM

Cheating is pervasive in both face to face and online environments.  I think it's easier to recognize in an online environment where the voice of a student is established in discussion threads.  Ultimately, creating assignments that call for creative and critical thinking and a unique product are the best way to avoid the classic 'answers on the hand' scenarios.
