The Nine Events of Instructions – Review, What do you think?

Robert Gagne’s Instruction Design Model: “The Nine Events of Instructions” C. Pappas Video

Step 1: Gain Attention

  • Capture the attention of those learning (animated tutorial)
  • Stimuli that ensure reception of coming instruction

Step 2: Inform Learner of Objectives

  • Internal process of expectancy
  • List of learning objectives
  • Level of expectation for learning
  • What will the learner be able to perform after the instruction?
  • Motivate the learner to complete the lesson.

Step 3: Stimulate Recall of Prior Learning

  • Recall of existing, relevant knowledge
  • Retrieval to working, short-term memory
  • Previous experience, previous concepts
  • Correlate new information with prior knowledge

Step 4: Present Stimulus Material

  • Display the content
  • Pattern recognition; selective perception
  • New content (chunked, explained, then demonstrated)
  • Multimedia (audio, video, graphics)

Step 5: Provide Learner Guidance

  • Guidance on the new content
  • Chunking, rehearsal, encoding
  • Assist learners in order to encode information for long-term storage
  • Guidance strategies (case studies, examples, mnemonics)

Step 6: Elicit Performance

  • Practice (new skills or behavior)
  • Confirm correct understanding
  • Demonstrating learning
  • Retrieval, responding

Step 7: Provide Feedback

  • Specific, immediate feedback on learner’s performance
  • Reinforcement, error correction

Step 8: Assess Performance

  • Post-test, final assessment
  • No additional coaching; feedback
  • Mastery of material

Step 9: Enhance Retention and Transfer

  • Determine whether or not the skills were learned
  • Apply the skills that were learned
  • Retention, retrieval, generalization

The Creative Spirit of Design

Instructional Design  & Creativity

The Creative Spirit of Design

Abstract

If instructional designers hold limited views about their practice they sometimes adopt formulaic routines that do not help them accomplish the goals they believe are important, or develop instruction of a quality envisioned by the field’s innovative theorists. Fortunately, designers canavoid these unfavorable results in part by understanding and exemplifying the creative spirit of design. In this article the author examines the creative spirit of design, exploring its imaginative, creation-oriented, and inter-disciplinary character. The author also describes how the creative spirit can help instructional designers remain flexible and perceptive in their practice, and by so doing be better able to create effective and innovative instruction of a quality consistent with their ultimate ideals.

See on Scoop.itPedagogy & Higher Education

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

Lara N. Madden‘s insight:

This might be my new research topic. Very interesting.

The internet can harm, but can also be a child’s best tool for learning

See on Scoop.itPedagogy & Higher Education

The internet is not a monster we have created. It is us. Our collective consciousness and, unfortunately, our collective subconscious. We like our privacy. We don’t like others to look at our screens when we do our emailing. We don’t “do” Facebook in public. It is our secretiveness that makes the internet a dangerous place.

Lara N. Madden‘s insight:

There has been a lot about children, learning and the internet recently. As a mom of digital native teenagers, this really interests me.
