Aanzet tot echte leer-en-instructie-theorie (uit de hoek van wij zijn ons brein)

UDL lijkt een soort op neurologie gebaseerde ergonomische benadering van het leerproces te zijn. Vanuit die vrij theoretische benadering weet men richtlijnen/aandachtspunten voor het goed laten verlopen van een leerproces te formuleren. Als praktiserend onderwijsontwerper komen mij die richtlijnen als zeer plausibel, waardevol en praktisch over. Het verhaal is nog niet af, maar dit maakt de indruk van een goed begin.


Er zijn voorbeelden van toepassing van UDL bij onderwijs ontwerp.

 

UDL kan gelinked worden aan TPACK en Bloom.

They aim to do this by combining an extreme form of "peer-to-peer learning" with project-based learning. Both are popular methods among education researchers, but they usually involve the supervision of a teacher.

They complete a project using resources freely available on the internet and by seeking help from their fellow students, who work alongside them in a large open-plan room full of computers. Another student will then be randomly assigned to mark their work.

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, June 19, 2014 3:07 AM

Not bad, but I have two major reservations.

 

1) These are three approaches - or in the worst case three competing educational ideologies - not three theories (there is very little that is scientific about constructivism; behavoirism has not been taken serious as a theory since 1960).

 

2) <<Now that you are able to distinguish three basic instructional design theories, how do you decide which one to use?>>

There is no need to choose, you can combine elements of these three approaches. That is exactly what experienced teachers do (and in different contexts they use different combinations), 

 

If you want to learn to teach, do not study learning "theories".

- find an experienced mentor
- learn all about your subjects and then just start to teach. You will make mistakes, spot and correct them (hint: teaching is about what the students get out of it, not about what the teacher put into it).

Why massive open online courses (still) matter

2013 was a year of hype for MOOCs (massive open online courses). Great big numbers and great big hopes were followed by some disappointing first results. But the head of edX, Anant Agarwal, makes the case that MOOCs still matter -- as a way to share high-level learning widely and supplement (but perhaps not replace) traditional classrooms. Agarwal shares his vision of blended learning, where teachers create the ideal learning experience for 21st century students.

Very usefull TED talk

 

MISSION of edX:
Re-imagine education using modern technology

 

The real meat of the presentation starts at about 8:50
(so be a active learner and fast forward)

 

What makes learning effective
(which principles/tactics MOOCs use to optimise learning)
- active learning (craig + lockhart 1972)
   lesson = 7 minute clip followed by student activity,
   repeat this N times
- self paced (pause, rewind, fast fore-ward your prof.)
- instant feedback (e.g. computer graded exercises)
- gamification + virtual labs
   (hands on learning, try things out)
- peer assessment/learning
   (real discussion on forums, learn by teaching)
- use classroom for in person interaction (flipped classroom)

 

Missing in this presentation
- assessment shift from summative to formative
  (only implied above)
- mastery learning

 

Buss model EdX: license next generation text books.

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, January 27, 2014 4:22 AM

Nice overview of the political program educational “reformers” try to implement.

Note the claim that their efforts are based on solid theory.
Their view on what a theory is is highly problematic. The un- testable speculations of Dewey, Vygotsky or Rousseau count as theory in that circles. Basically they mean by theory the same as Christian fundamentalist mean when they say that evolution is just a “theory”.

Note also that their proposals make the teaching of real theories (hypotheses that survived the test of empirical evidence and logical consistency) almost impossible. Teaching such theories would involve: a professor that knows it all, who tries to share his treasures with his students; and students that are supposed to make an effort to “get it”. The cultural transmission of theories from one generation to the next will be ended when the “reformers” get their way.


Here is the brutal essence of their reform program: kill the teachers, burn the libraries, let the digital natives gather around the digital campfire and by means of social construction create the world of Warcraft for real.
