The Modern Taxonomy Wheel

The Modern Taxonomy Wheel | Instructional Design in the Virtual World | Scoop.it

" This Taxonomy wheel was first discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s educational consultancy website mmiweb.org.uk That wheel was produced by Sharon Artley and was an adaption of Kathwohl and Anderson’s (2001) adaption of Bloom (1956). The idea to further adapt it for the pedagogy possibilities with mobile devices, in particular the iPad, I have to acknowledge the creative work of Kathy Schrock on her website Bloomin’ Apps."

Yes,agreed, Brad: many of these apps can be used for many different purposes. My gripe is 'Why only iPads?'

I've enrolled in two MOOC courses - partly because the topics were relevant to my work, but also to experience a MOOC from the "inside" as both a student and an instructional designer. I was particularly interested in opportunities for interaction (student-instructor, student-student, student-content, student-technology) and collaboration.

In one course, focused on a subject area with which I'm very familiar, students formed virtual groups around mutual interests and professional objectives, developed projects which were evaluated according to clear guidelines, and the projects were made available to all enrollees.. This course also had very active student-generated discussions on focused topics. What characterized this MOOC was the flexibility provided to the students for creating multiple ways to interact and collaborate.

The second MOOC focused on topics that were highly technical and mostly how-to with little discussion of why-to. Interaction among students was considerably less, and I was unsuccessful in either forming or joining a group (virtual or F2F local) to expand my understanding of context and implementation issues. While the content was interesting ( I particularly liked the video lectures and animations), I found it a much more isolating experience and did not complete the course.

Pat, thanks for sharing those first hand experiences. Very valuable insights!
Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:02 PM

This blog post does discuss some reasons why students enroll in MOOCs, but doesn't really talk much about why they drop out. 

 

One big reason - FRUSTRATION.  When a learner gets stuck and can't get individualized meaningful feedback, it creates a failed learning experience. I think we discount how important those personal encounters are in helping learners.

Brain-Based Learning: Possible Implications for Online Instruction

Brain-Based Learning:  Possible Implications for Online Instruction | Instructional Design in the Virtual World | Scoop.it

by Stephanie A. Clemons

Abstract


As higher education institutions push for more online courses instructors are faced with issues and challenges related to teaching in the online learning environment. Regardless, of whether higher education’s impetus is fueled by cost-saving measures, or the belief that online courses answer the challenge of rapid tuition increases or changing student body, one issue that continues to resurface, concerning online courses is to how best to deliver the information and facilitate learning for the student.

Issues concerning student learning involve how they accept, retain and process information delivered in a course. This paper briefly defines and describes brain-based learning, a theory that is under investigation in higher education, and offers suggestions on how that theory may be implemented in the delivery of information and facilitation of online classes in higher education. Implications for online educators are also presented.


The brain is “not only the control center of the entire human body, organizing our behaviors and biological functions, but it also is the seat of our humanity. It defines who we are, how we act, and the very nature of our species.” (Slavkin 2004, 38).


KeyWords: Learning models, learners, modalities, online learning and instruction, brain-based learning, higher education.

It was great to see this article draw the relationship between how we could be approaching education as well as the application of the same / similar principles for corporate leadership.  All of the competencies mentioned would serve both organizations and the individuals within that organization and lead to more humanized evironments in both the schools and in enterprise.

Wow, I don't know what amazes the most.  These elitists ignorance, or their arrogance.  They admit that they know "shockingly little" about online learning processes.  However, these engineering and technology specialists feel confident to conduct research and share their "knowledge."

 

Just as Columbus, they have stumbled onto the continent of interactivity and engagement, and presume that no one else has ever discovered it.
