ADRIFT: Create your own Interactive Fiction | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Create your own Interactive Fiction with this free, easy to use application for Windows.
callooh's insight:

It's create-your-own adventure day and ADRIFT is another example of a platform you can use. A bit steeper learning curve than QUEST or Inklewriter.

Adaptive learning: The best approaches we've seen so far

Adaptive learning: The best approaches we've seen so far | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Ed tech's hottest trend is impacting how students learn from K-12 to higher ed, and these companies are at the forefront.
callooh's insight:

An older article, but examples of adaptive learning--mostly in higher ed. On the corporate side--see little true uptake from a programmed sense.

Focus on well understood subjects like math concepts.

Michael Patrick Dunn's curator insight, March 28, 3:27 PM

These adaptive programs are great for augmenting learning, closing the learning gaps, and/or being the intervention.  Core concepts still need to be taught thru best practice, which we know is direct, explicit instruction as shown by the research.

User Experience Debt — nForm

User Experience Debt — nForm | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

How much learner experience debt are you incurring when you develop a learning experience? Although describing the design of digital experiences more generally, it's very applicable to the ID world.

 

"UX debt is the quality gap between the experience your digital product delivers now and the improved experience it could offer given the necessary time and resources. Put another way, UX debt measures the number and magnitude of potential product enhancements that would improve the user experience."


Just substitute learner experience for UX...We all live in a world of constraints, however, unintentional ux/learner experience debt is something we can try to avoid.

Using and old concept of role playing (via toys) to inspire/inform the right delivery of your learning story and experience.

Henry Lee's curator insight, March 16, 9:50 PM

Rescooped from Amos Cruz. This is a low-tech way to share a narrative. It really brings things back full circle since using toys is perhaps the first ways that we actually learn about the world....at least it was for me. For example, legos and building blocks taught me about basic physics and spatial relationships.
