Atrixware E-Learning Solutions » Blog Archive » Approaches to Creating Effective Learning Objectives | e-Learning, Technology, Design & Social Media | Scoop.it

The other day I had a bit of an epiphany of sorts that I would like to share with all my dear friends in the E-Learning world.  I was talking with a student when they asked me a very pointed and direct question that I wasn’t expecting.  Nor, as it turns out, was I prepared to answer it.

 

Curious as to what it was?

 

Simple….why?

 

They wanted to know why we were doing the things we were doing in the course and why it should matter to them.

My friends, I knew in that moment that I was failing my students in a way I hadn’t even thought of.  If they were feeling compelled to ask me why, then I was definitely missing the boat in a key area of my lesson prep.  In short, it became blatantly obvious that I wasn’t creating effective learning objectives for my students.  Because if I was, then this question would never even come to the surface, much less catch me so off guard.

So today we are going to fix this problem once and for all.  We’re going back to basics as we look at not only the idea of a learning objective, but also how to create one that will be both well understood and effective.

Remember what it was like to be little?  To be just another kid hanging out in the neighborhood and dreaming about what the future would look like?  Yeah, those were the days.  I don’t know about you, but I was pretty sure that the Jetsons were on to a thing or two!

Well my friends, the future is now.  We have arrived, not just into the next century, but into the second decade of the next century and its time for us to take a closer look at what that means to the would of E-Learning as a whole.

We may not be cruising around in flying cars just yet, but we do have a few extremely impressive new resources ready and waiting for us to both explore and incorporate.  So, without further ado, I give you E-Learning….the 2013 version!

When I ask business leaders, students, or friends to think back on their favorite experiences with what they consider truly breakthrough new products or services, many can’t help but smile. The range of things I’ve heard when I’ve asked the question is immense: iPads, Disneyland, Diaper Genies, Facebook, snowboards, rollerblades, Zappos, the Swiffer, Etch A Sketch, Crest White Strips, the Amazon Kindle, Skype, the University of Phoenix, MTV, eBay, Segway scooters, Harry Potter books, and the list goes on.

There is a reason for their Cheshire Cat grins. They’re reliving the pleasure of being surprised. Not the kind of surprise when our older brother jumps out from behind a door and scares the crap out of us. It’s the opposite kind of surprise – the kind that signals delight, appreciation and intrigue. When we experience a positive surprise, it compels us to do three things:

We sat, afraid to move lest we interfere with the learning and interaction we were witnessing. Children -- young children -- moved throughout the classroom carrying various materials while maneuvering around tables with teapots and an occasional flower vase before landing and unpacking their selected treasures. The materials were designed to foster discovery, engage imagination, serve practical purposes, or open new worlds for students. Some did all this at once. The teacher moved intentionally throughout the room, interacting with a student about the materials currently being explored, and then moving on to another mind absorbed in discovery and learning.

After hearing about Montessori education for years, this was my first direct exposure to it. In short, I was wowed. The classrooms were abuzz with motivation. The teachers were accomplished maestros, able to conduct impromptu symphonies — in part or full — as they sprang up from student insights and inquiries.

Keeping track of digital information flows and separating the signal from the noise is difficult. There is little time to make sense of it all. We may feel like we are just not able to stay current and make informed decisions. PKM gives a framework to develop a network of people and sources of information that one can draw from on a daily basis. PKM is a process of filtering, creating, and discerning, and it also helps manage individual professional development through continuous learning.

Twitter as a machine for book invention - Austin Kleon | Diigo

@JoyceCarolOates is a great follow on Twitter—she’s funny and interesting—but you get the feeling from a few of her tweets that she still sees it as a waste of time, a distraction from the actual work of book writing, as many authors do. But for some of us, Twitter is where we first get our thoughts down. Twitter is our public notebook, the place where we think out loud, let other people think back at us, then hopefully think some more.

The thing about keeping notebooks is that you have to revisit them in order to get the most out of them, and Twitter is like a notebook in which the more pages you fill, the more pages disappear. If you use it properly, your tweets are eventually lost to time. And this is part of what makes it so great, says Matt Haughey in his excellent essay, “Why I love Twitter and barely tolerate Facebook”:

Prepare for the future of work | Harold Jarche | e-Learning, Technology, Design & Social Media | Scoop.it

Ross Dawson says that people who have “learnt how to learn” will be better prepared for jobs of the future. “We’re finding people who have learnt how to learn know how to engage with a community and tap into others for support.” This is what personal knowledge management is all about. It starts by seeking people and knowledge sources and the Seek-Sense-Share cycle finishes by sharing with communities and social networks. My recent workshops, both online and in person, indicate a need for PKM skills in all types of organizations and for people at all levels, from freelancers, researchers, managers, executives and more. The benefits are not just for individuals, preparing for their next job, but the organization gains from employees who take control of their learning and freely share their knowledge. PKM makes for more resilient individuals and companies.

The following guest post is by Lisa Bodell, CEO of futurethink, a New York City-based innovation research and training firm.Hulu, iPhone, and Prius didn’t come to market because their creators asked status quo questions. They didn’t happen because somebody began a meeting with “Who has an idea for improving the industry?” or “How are we going to increase sales?” Those innovations exist because disruptive, transformative, even uncomfortable questions without easy answers were asked.

Q&A: Ungifted and Talented

Q&A: Ungifted and Talented | e-Learning, Technology, Design & Social Media | Scoop.it
An erstwhile remedial student sets out to overturn ideas about intelligence. Scott Barry Kaufman was 17 when he read that a person with his IQ would be lucky to finish high school. "If you force me to express my intellectual potential in a standardized fashion, I can't," says Kaufman, now a cognitive psychologist who teaches at NYU. "I'm not anti-IQ; I'm just against measuring every single person's intelligence as deviations from a singular standardized metric." Kaufman's own book, Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined, charts his research and personal stake in challenging what predicts achievement.

The Question Every Project Team Should Answer | MIT Sloan Management Review

The Question Every Project Team Should Answer | MIT Sloan Management Review | e-Learning, Technology, Design & Social Media | Scoop.it
Asking why before you begin a project raises its chances of success. 

Can you and your team members articulate in a few short sentences the underlying reason that brought your project into existence? If you can’t, you’re not alone: We have observed that in many corporate projects, team members cannot explain the point of what they are doing — and as a result, their projects are likely to fail.

When a project fails to achieve its objective, observers frequently chalk it up to politics, poor planning and weak execution.1 Our experience as embedded observers with several hundred teams in more than 50 organizations has taught us that these factors often flow from an initial omission. Whenever we observe a project team in trouble — frustrated, laden with conflict and struggling to deliver results — we ask members to articulate what compelled their project into existence in the first place. To our continuing surprise, we often discover these teams have not even discussed, let alone agreed on, why they are pursuing the project.

Seth's Blog: Most people, most of the time (the perfect crowd fallacy) | Diigo

Most people, most of the time, aren't creative, generous or willing to stand up and contribute worthwhile work to the community. At least not the contributions you're hoping for.

The myth of wikipedia is that, when given the chance, hordes of people stepped up and built it. In fact, 5,000 people contribute most of the value on the site.

The myth of ebooks is that now that anyone can publish, enormous numbers of people will use this new platform to create countless numbers of new classics. In fact, most self-published ebooks just aren't very good.

And the same is true for just about everything that's open. A few people do an enormous amount (non-profit volunteers, community organizations, online sites), a few people are vandals or merely taking what they can take, and the masses participate, but aren't at the heart of the project.

A 70 year old creativity technique that is still relevant today - Think Jar Collective | Diigo

Around the late 1930′s, a creative Ad man named James Webb Young had a knock on his door from a manager who shared an epiphany that success in advertising comes from selling ideas not things. Despite the manager’s insight, he had one problem, his team didn’t know how to get ideas; they were stuck.  So, they came to the successful James Young for ideas on how to get ideas.  This encounter led to Young creating a little book called  A Technique for Producing Ideas. I recently came across it and was impressed to find some advice that is as relevant today as 70 years ago. I recommend you buy the book, but below I’ve picked out the key points you can use right away.

How to manage your digital afterlife

Research suggests your online persona can assuage grief over your passing. Make sure your legacy is in order 

After their son’s suicide, one Wisconsin couple was desperate for answers. They tried to log into his e-mail and Facebook accounts but failed. The grieving parents finally got a court order to access these online records, arguing that just as their son’s death gave them ownership of his tangible assets, so it also gave them rights to his digital contributions.

In courtrooms around the country, the online legacies of the departed are becoming the subject of painful battles for mourning families. People have long made plans for delivery of their possessions after they die, including family heirlooms, photograph albums, old letters and other memorabilia. Many people design this disbursement to help those left behind deal with their demise. Our possessions are part of us and traditionally are the main tangible part that remains after our death.
