Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device by Alan Reid. “If student satisfaction, engagement, and metacognitive awareness are all part of your definition of a successful course, then Twitter may be an option for you.”

Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device by Alan Reid

Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter. Some learners are effective at self-regulation; that is, they guide their learning through metacognition – thinking about their own learning – and through strategic action and evaluation of their own progress. Research has shown that such learners will outperform inadequate self-regulators in nearly every aspect of learning. Increasing metacognitive awareness (knowing what you know, and what you don’t know) is critical for better self-regulation. What is a metacognitive support device? Four types of tweets What does this mean?

Towards alternative lifelong learning(s): what Freire can still teach us. Judith Walker, Doctoral Candidate [1] Educational Studies, University of British Columbia I am hopeful, not out of mere stubbornness, but out of an existential, concrete imperative (Freire, 1999, p.8) Introduction In the first edition of the Rizoma Freireano, McLaren and Jaramillo (2008) contributed an article calling for ‘alternative globalizations’.

Towards alternative lifelong learning(s): what Freire can still teach us

In this paper, the authors firmly reject the inevitability of a global neoliberal capitalism, which has come to dominate our understandings of the nature of globalization, and instead put forward the alternative ideals of ‘critical globalization studies’ and ‘critical globalization pedagogy’. By using the term ‘alternative’ the authors reframe the word ‘globalization’ and reappropriate it to some extent rather than endorsing a binary understanding of a pre-destined and already-defined concept, which would have occurred had they relied on the term ‘anti’.

The Thing about Multiple-Choice Tests … by Mike Dickinson

So the challenge as question-writers is to construct the question and its answer choices in such a way that the learner really has to master the objective in order to select the correct choice.” You can easily psyche out a multiple-choice test, right? I mean, based on the fact that you're a developer of online instruction, I assume that part of the reason you reached your current position is that you're a good test taker. Now you're on the other end of the spectrum, designing multiple-choice questions and hoping your learners' answer choices will be based on their actual knowledge and not their clever testmanship. So the challenge in writing these items is to create a valid measure of the learner's knowledge. In educational settings, instructors of online learning courses often have the ability to assign written papers, that is, constructed response tests.

A true and fair test of the knowledge. Sköld. This paper examines how the effects of virtual space on learning have been elucidated in recent research with the aim of providing both a comprehensive picture of the current state of research and interesting avenues for future projects.


Drawing on a multidisciplinary review, it identifies five key themes that together constitute research in virtual space and learning: analogies between the study of physical space and learning; socio-cultural constructivist perspectives; practical and theoretical pedagogy; architecture; and, aesthetics. Current research on how virtual space affects learning is fragmented, albeit rich. The pivotal challenge for the future is to establish a research infrastructure that can harness the richness of already existing studies, while simultaneously serving to drive, focus, and interconnect future research efforts.

A Symbiosis Between Instructional Systems Design and Project Management / Une symbiose de la conception de matériel pédagogique et de la gestion de projet. A Symbiosis Between Instructional Systems Design and Project Management / Une symbiose de la conception de matériel pédagogique et de la gestion de projet Abstract This study is intended to explore a complementary relationship between instructional systems design (ISD) and project management in an attempt to build a plausible case for integrating project management as a distinct course in the core of the graduate instructional systems design programs.

A Symbiosis Between Instructional Systems Design and Project Management / Une symbiose de la conception de matériel pédagogique et de la gestion de projet

It is argued that ISD and project management should form a symbiosis from a curriculum perspective, in a hope for the prepared instructional designers to create values for customers. An integrated view of ISD and project management is proposed, using three concepts of project management as a reasonable bridge for the integration. Challenges for the proposed view in this position paper are also stated.

The Accidental Instructional Designer by Cammy Bean

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor? A teacher? A firefighter? An eLearning instructional designer (ID) doing corporate training? As a teenager and young adult, I set my sights on becoming a writer or a teacher. Let’s get personal How did I get here? From there I went to a “multimedia production” company that hired me as an instructional designer. What about you? So what’s your story? As eLearning continues to grow and expand as an industry, we see more and more people finding their way into the field by accident. Kicking it up a notch So what can you do – for yourself and for your internal teams – to start creating better eLearning that actually achieves real performance change? You can do lots of things, but let’s start at the beginning. What’s the fire in your belly? Read books. Top eLearning Learning Behavior Roles Content for Thu.Feb 23.

One Learning Challenge: Four Designers Put Their Skills to the Test by Tracy Bissette

The unique ideas shared in this challenge – a pre-test, a motivating campaign, varying levels of scaffolding, an acronym for easy recall – demonstrate that instructional designs can be enhanced by other viewpoints.” Mentorship is a powerful teaching tool. As an instructional designer (ID), I’ve recognized that ideas from mentors and peers have been a catalyst for my professional growth. With this in mind, I created a session for DevLearn 2011 that would give session participants insights into the thought processes of skilled instructional designers.

The session title was “One Learning Challenge: Three Designers Put Their Skills to the Test.” Three of my colleagues agreed enthusiastically to participate in the session with me. The challenge Client The client, the Door Security & Safety Foundation, provides programs that enhance the safety and security of existing buildings.
