Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design

Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it
The world of Instructional Design has evolved over the years. Influences from various learning theory movements like behaviorism, cognitivism, and social learning have constructed a foundation which acts as pillars of successful approaches. While each theory includes specific focal points with regards to how learning occurs—either by behavioral response or knowledge acquisition—they have contributed unique perspectives on learning as a whole and are responsible for how the field of Instructional Design has changed over time.

Newton’s New Law of Teaching: When Quality Instruction and Technology Intersect

Newton’s New Law of Teaching: When Quality Instruction and Technology Intersect | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it
Both of these variables—good teachers and good technology—can transform a student’s learning experience. Each of them are also compromised by the absence of the other. The holy grail of instruction, then, seems to reside in the space occupied by teachers who know their content, know their kids, and know how to weave powerful technology into their instruction.
