Are You Doing Learning Engineering—Or Instructional Design?

Are You Doing Learning Engineering—Or Instructional Design? | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
If you are doing instructional design (ID) you may also be doing learning engineering according to the definition from the designers, engineers, researchers, and practitioners involved in the IEEE ICICLE industry consortium on learning engineering. They defined learning engineering as follows:

Learning engineering is a process and practice that:

applies the learning sciences
uses human-centered engineering design methodologies, and
applies data-informed decision-making
to support learners and their development.

Jim Goodell (@jgoodell2) nos explica qué es la ingeniería del aprendizaje y la conexión con el diseño instruccional.

 

Hacer ingeniería del aprendizaje implica, según IEEE ICICLE, aplicar las ciencias del aprendizaje, utilizar metodologías de diseño de ingeniería centradas en el ser humano y tomar decisiones a partir de datos.

A simple strategy for increasing student agency in your classroom is to provide students with a choice board of options they can choose from to demonstrate their learning at the end of an investigation, unit, or project.

Social Media Has Not Destroyed a Generation - Scientific American

Social Media Has Not Destroyed a Generation - Scientific American | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"

  • Anxiety about the effects of social media on young people has risen to such an extreme that giving children smartphones is sometimes equated to handing them a gram of cocaine. The reality is much less alarming.

 

  • A close look at social media use shows that most young texters and Instagrammers are fine. Heavy use can lead to problems, but many early studies and news headlines have overstated dangers and omitted context.

 

  • Researchers are now examining these diverging viewpoints, looking for nuance and developing better methods for measuring whether social media and related technologies have any meaningful impact on mental health."

A Reminder That 'Fake News' Is An Information Literacy Problem - Not A Technology Problem - FORBES

A Reminder That 'Fake News' Is An Information Literacy Problem - Not A Technology Problem - FORBES | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Beneath the spread of all “fake news,” misinformation, disinformation, digital falsehoods and foreign influence lies society’s failure to teach its citizenry information literacy: how to think critically about the deluge of information that confronts them in our modern digital age. Instead, society has prioritized speed over accuracy, sharing over reading, commenting over understanding. Children are taught to regurgitate what others tell them and to rely on digital assistants to curate the world rather than learn to navigate the informational landscape on their own. Schools no longer teach source triangulation, conflict arbitration, separating fact from opinion, citation chaining, conducting research or even the basic concept of verification and validation. In short, we’ve stopped teaching society how to think about information, leaving our citizenry adrift in the digital wilderness increasingly saturated with falsehoods without so much as a compass or map to help them find their way to safety. The solution is to teach the world's citizenry the basics of information literacy.

Via John Evans

The ability recognize fake news can be taught and learned.  For all those who say,  '...There's no time to do this, there's no place to fit it in the curriculum!'  .... WAKE UP.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, July 25, 7:35 PM
A well presented essay / article on the necessity of teaching our 'citizens' digital and information literacy and to cultivate a persistant and healthy scepticism towards the information they read online.  My favourite phrase in the piece: "Most importantly, we must emphasize verification and validation over virality and velocity."
Federico Santarelli's curator insight, August 4, 11:37 AM
Already, science and technology can help us fight fake news, which is a problem of cultural origin and poor conscience like compulsive sharing, it takes honest conscientious work of individual users in an organization, what do we think, what do we mean, what do we feel ?
