Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design

Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design | Tracy | 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.

50 Educators You Should Follow on Pinterest | Shake Up Learning

50 Educators You Should Follow on Pinterest | Shake Up Learning | Tracy | Scoop.it

"I love Pinterest! Pinterest is NOT just for crafts and recipes, and despite early reports, it is for both MEN AND WOMEN. My brother-in-law has a bacon board to prove it! Pinterest has become particularly popular among educators, and today I want to share some wonderful educational pinners that you should follow. The links below will take you to their profile and boards. I purposely didn’t link to specific boards because most of these fabulous pinners have several boards for you to peruse. I think there is something on this list for just about everyone. This list covers just about every grade level, subject area and plenty of educational technology!"

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | Tracy | Scoop.it
The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking

Unlocking the Mystery of Critical Thinking | Tracy | Scoop.it
Critical thinking. We all endorse it. We all want our students to do it. And we claim to teach it. But do we? Do we even understand and agree what it means to think critically?

According to Paul and Elder’s (2013a) survey findings, most faculty don’t know what critical thinking is or how to teach it. Unless faculty explicitly and intentionally design their courses to build their students’ critical thinking skills and receive training in how to teach them, their students do not improve their ski

Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain

Assessment, Choice, and the Learning Brain | Tracy | Scoop.it
The growing field of educational neuroscience, converging developmental psychology, cognitive science, and education, can help teachers and school leaders rethink how they approach assessments. While some of its initial findings merely support what educators have intuitively believed, it is also challenging many assumptions and providing new insight into best educational practices, especially regarding assessment.
