Classics ~ Adult Learning Theory & Andragogy Slideshare ~ Malcolm Knowles

Highlights that apply to technology training & learning, as relevant today.

 

Why specifics are being taught  (commands, functions, operations...)

   

Learning is task oriented within a context of common, needed tasks, not memorization

    

Teaching accounts for the wide range of backgrounds of learnings  (different levels / previous experience of learners)

   

Allows for self-direction, discovery - offering guidance through mistakes, offering help in learning if needed

A good visual summary of the classic work of Knowles, useful as a refresher of the basics.  The SlideShare author has also encouraged free sharing of the "Presentation of Andragogy." ~ D

All learning should be premised on the learner actively taking a role in their own learning.

Scooping this to basically reference it for more tips on curating. We are all works in progress.

Russell Yardley's curator insight, December 25, 2013 4:01 PM

With billions of people connected through social media and directly connected with email traditional curators of news and other content have had their business models destroyed but it has not surprisingly taken many years for better models to emerge. 

 

The widsom of crowds is well known but so is their stupidity (stock market crashes, group think, lowest common denominator in election outcomes...). Better curating tools and systems are beginning to show that valuable curators of the worlds content are able to find their audience and enrich the world with deep insight that replace the extremely low numbers of curators of the past (news paper barons).

 

Some of these curators will be paid and others do it just for the joy of it. Collectively they will reshape thinking and ultimately the world.
