A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic]

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories [Infographic] | TELT |
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Useful for key ideas in learning theory, though perhaps more a demonstration of someone's constructivist/connectivist thoughts on learning/teaching than a useful end product for others.  (Constructiorism => constructionism).

Great background information to build our understanding. I really like seeing them all presented this way for easy comparison.

A very visual illustration of learning theory.

Networked Learning and Connectivism for English Language Teachers by Michael Griffiths on Prezi

Connectivism 101: this presentation quotes Siemens and Salmon to produce a basic overview of connectivism, though without the specific focus on language teachers I was expecting from the title.


Bottom line for teacher education is "drive it yourself" - it's up to teachers to choose what you they want to learn and how to go about it.  Which I find both liberating and frustrating.
