Donald Clark Plan B: Mager – Mr learning objectives. In this course you will…..yawn, yawn!

Donald Clark Plan B: Mager – Mr learning objectives. In this course you will…..yawn, yawn! | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Robert Mager published the second edition of his book Preparing Instructional Objectives in 1975 (first edition1962). It was an attempt to bring some rigour to the often woolly world of education and training by making learning professionals start with clear goals. It essentially says, start with the end point and work backwards. Additionally, his Criterion Referenced Instruction (CRI), an extension of Gagne’s method of instruction, is a method for the design and delivery of training. His aim was to produce a more rigorous and precise approach to the design of learning experiences based on competences and assessment that relate to defined learning or performance objectives."

Donald Clark Plan B: Kandel (1929 - ) Nobel Prize winning learning theorist

Donald Clark Plan B: Kandel (1929 - ) Nobel Prize winning learning theorist | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"With a Nobel Prize (with Arvid Carlsson & Paul Greengard) for his work on learning and memory, Eric Kandel’s is a towering figure in the science of learning. Yet he is barely known among learning professionals. His interest in memory came from an interest in psychoanalysis but also reflection on his own experiences as a child in Vienna and his escape from the Nazis in 1939. But it was solid science and laboratory work in the US, and the realisation that memory does not reside in neurons but in the reconfiguration of their connections that drove him forward."

Donald Clark Plan B: Tulving (1927 - ) Cue memory: episodic & semantic memories and, encoding | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Endel Tulving, in 1972, made an important distinction in our long-term memory between episodic memory (remembered experiences and events in time and space) and semantic memory (facts, ideas, concepts, rules independent of time and space). This was largely based on an analysis of internal memory states, and the experimental testing of memories, an anathema to pure behaviourists. It was also confirmed by brain damage studies. His 1983 paper Elements of Episodic Memory has become a classic in memory theory."

Donald Clark Plan B: Baddeley (1934) complexity of ‘working’ memory

Donald Clark Plan B: Baddeley (1934) complexity of ‘working’ memory | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Working memory is the door through which all learning must enter, so it is important to know what it is and its limitations. Baddeley looked specifically at ‘encoding’. to unpack what he called ‘working memory’ to replace the previous, simpler ‘short-term’ memory model. This is important as a working knowledge of ‘working’ memory can lead to better teaching and learning. By designing material which is optimised for getting through working memory to long-term memory, significant improvements are theoretically possible."

Donald Clark Plan B: Atkinson & Shiffrin - three-stage model of memory (sensory, STM, LTM)

Donald Clark Plan B: Atkinson & Shiffrin - three-stage model of memory (sensory, STM, LTM) | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"As memory research moved away from the purely behaviourist, stimulus- response (S-R) model, and its offspring the stimulus- organism -response (S-O-R) model towards information processing, psychologists started to think of memory in term of information processing. This proved to be useful in determining models for memory, models that could be tested in laboratory experiments. Although distinctions between different types of memory had been present in the literature, Atkinson & Schiffrin, in 1968, laid down the first solid schema for memory that acted as a solid foundation for further research and refinement."

Donald Clark Plan B: Miller (1920 - ) Magic number 7 plus & minus 2 - chunking

Donald Clark Plan B: Miller (1920 - ) Magic number 7 plus & minus 2 - chunking | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"George Miller is best known for his paper ‘The magic number 7 plus and minus 2’ (1956) which focused attention (literally) on a problem that plagues teaching and learning, the danger of ‘cognitive overload’. For this reason alone, he deserves mention. Short-term memory has a limited capacity and this capacity can be seen as being dependent on ‘attention’ i.e. our ability to attend to things in short-term memory. More than this Miller was one of the first to bring in cognitive information theory, famously saying the the mind had been brought back into psychology on the back of the machine."

Faculty Advisory Council Memorandum on Journal Pricing § THE HARVARD LIBRARY TRANSITION

"We write to communicate an untenable situation facing the Harvard Library. Many large journal publishers have made the scholarly communication environment fiscally unsustainable and academically restrictive. This situation is exacerbated by efforts of certain publishers (called “providers”) to acquire, bundle, and increase the pricing on journals."
