What Content Curation, Chunking Information and Micro-learning have in common?

What Content Curation, Chunking Information and Micro-learning have in common? | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
In this article I’ll present a framework that could help educators to make a shift from designing long, information based online courses to micro-learning, which is a result of content curation techniques and chunking information design strategy.
callooh's insight:

Learning experiences ideally should be a series of aligned supports designed to solve performance challenges tied organizational goals. Creating bite-sized chunks for reflection and reinforcement can be powerful. The challenge? Getting learners used to only accessing an LMS for their learning needs to see that micro-learning fits into their workflow and has a powerful WIFM.

While this applies to adult Professional Learning, I think the principles can be applied to children as well.  These are great things to consider no matter who we are teaching.

"Subtext is a free iPad app that allows classroom groups to exchange ideas in the pages of digital texts. You can also layer in enrichment materials, assignments and quizzes—opening up almost limitless opportunities to engage students and foster analysis and writing skills. "


Would not limit the application of this to K12, think of the possibility for learner manuals for adult learners as well.

How To Improve eLearning Course Design Usability By Adopting The 10 Usability Heuristics

How To Improve eLearning Course Design Usability By Adopting The 10 Usability Heuristics | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Asynchronous eLearning is different from traditional classroom studying and requires strong motivation and self-discipline from learners. As there is no person-to-person contact and immediate reaction to problems emerging in the process of learning, eLearning professionals should pay special attention to eLearning course navigation and usability. To help you remove all the barriers to effective eLearning course design the article provides an idea of what eLearning usability is and how to improve it by applying common usability heuristics.

A great article and collection of visuals to frame the importance of a systems view of performance improvement.

Incorporating a performance improvement mindset into instructional design, development, and evaluation is critical to creating meaningful learning experiences.

Article - The Power of Scenario-Based Questions (Resources) | Innovative Instructional Design | Scoop.it
callooh's insight:

This is instructional design 101, but the only thing I'd emphacize/add is that questions that support "understanding" have to lead to more than a passive, abstract recognition of concepts and a problem space but also to a learner's own formulation of solutions in that problem space. We  also have to provide opportunities to test those solutions in a safe space (whether it's a face-to-face training space or online or in an informal learning sandbox).. Love the quoite about "retrieval practice paired with context alignment"--so important.

ghbrett's curator insight, October 23, 2013 12:29 PM

Scenarios present problems within a context. Context is often not well understood, but an important issue in dealing with real world problem solving. As the old saying sort of goes, "If you only have a hammer every problem is a nail."  Within the context of a scenario the student / learner needs to pick the correct set of "tools" to match the needs presented. This article also presents some ideas for instructional designers as well. A good Read.
