Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 6, 2013 7:26 PM

This is the first of nine infographics that will look at Gagne’s Nine Events of Learning. This first one looks at how to gain students attention. Additional infographics will cover the "events of learning" listed below. And if you find this of interest if you do a search on Gagne's Nine Events of Learning you will find quite a bit of information.

* Inform learners of objectives

* Stimulate recall of prior learning

* Present the content

* Provide “learning guidance”

* Elicit performance (practice).

* Provide feedback

* Assess performance

* Enhance retention and transfer to the job

Anne Sturgess's curator insight, May 7, 2013 5:41 PM

Based on Gagne's suggestions for engaging learners.

This looks like a great free app for creating your own short movies and movie projects collaboratively. You can grab scripts and then assign different roles to friends through facebook and each adds their part. Looks like great fun. The catch is that you have to register through facebook.
