Instructional Design ISD at Warp Speed First, the Wrap-up After looking at the earlier models of ISD, it almost seems inevitable that we would end up with the present ADDIE model that contains the five phases of analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. Almost every version throughout its history either had or alluded to the five phases of the model. Thus, this could conceivably be the most stable part of ISD as even its opponents have a hard time arguing against the five phases as Diane Gayeski notes in A Hard Look at ISD. Good Points of ISD Bridges the gap between the "science of learning" and the "art of teaching" A Cyclic process or spiral arrangement of ongoing continuous improvement Its purpose is "learning" rather than "instruction" Capable of prototyping More than a sequence...it is a relationship of processes Bad Points of ISD It is a cybernetic system that seems to be able to steer its way towards a desired destination Orientated towards the use of behavioral/performance objectives Thus...

ARCS Design Process The ARCS motivational design process is a systematic problem solving approach that requires knowledge of human motivation and progresses from learner analysis to solution design. More specifically, the process includes: Knowing and identifying the elements of human motivation, Analyzing audience characteristics to determine motivational requirements, Identifying characteristics of instructional materials and processes that stimulate motivation, Selecting appropriate motivational tactics, and Applying and evaluating appropriate tactics. Thus, motivational design includes a systematic process that contains these steps and results in the preparation of learning environments that contain tactics, or activities, that have a predictable influence on the amount and direction of a person’s behavior. Instructional design, by contrast, is concerned with factors that influence how well a person will be able to acquire, recall, and use new knowledge and skills. Keller, J. Keller, J.
What does an instructional designer do? In the past few months, I’ve been asked by a number of different people what an instructional designer does and how to get into the field. I love instructional design because it is a field where I am constantly learning and I have a great variety in what I do. I use so many different skills—writing, web design, graphics, collaboration, planning, plus of course how people learn. Since this question has come up more than once, I thought it would be useful to collect all the information I have emailed people privately and post it here. This will be a series of posts over the week or so. So without further ado, here’s the first installation: What does an instructional designer do? I’m emphasizing “experiences” here deliberately, even though that isn’t always how others would describe the job. If all you’re doing is dumping content into PowerPoint slides or text to read, you don’t need an instructional designer. How do we do that? Update: Other Posts in this Series Free Subscription

Toolkit Essential Questions These are questions which touch our hearts and souls. They are central to our lives. They help to define what it means to be human. Most important thought during our lives will center on such essential questions. What does it mean to be a good friend? If we were to draw a cluster diagram of the Questioning Toolkit, Essential Questions would be at the center of all the other types of questions. All the other questions and questioning skills serve the purpose of "casting light upon" or illuminating Essential Questions. Most Essential Questions are interdisciplinary in nature. Essential Questions probe the deepest issues confronting us . . . complex and baffling matters which elude simple answers: Life - Death - Marriage - Identity - Purpose - Betrayal - Honor - Integrity - Courage - Temptation - Faith - Leadership - Addiction - Invention - Inspiration. Essential Questions are at the heart of the search for Truth. Essential Questions offer the organizing focus for a unit.

Stern Math: Videos Working with children in class Number Relationships Temple Ary, math specialist and teacher trainer, working with first grade children at Harlem Success Academy in New York City. Temple is using the Counting Board to teach the numbers 1 to 10 and to show what numbers mean. The children can see the pattern of how the numbers increase by a single unit, the difference in length and height, the order of the numbers, and their relationship to one. She has not yet introduced the written symbols for the numbers because she wants the children to get these number sense concepts first.

Dear eLearning Designers, Please Stick To These Basic Design Principles Dear eLearning Designers, Please Stick To These Basic Design Principles In today’s market, eLearning professionals and trainers need a good working knowledge of design principles. This is not to imply that they need to understand code or acquire a design degree, rather they ought to be able to identify what makes a good course and what a bad. This guide details the fundamental principles every course developer must know including how to utilize techniques to help workflow and produce significant effects in eLearning design. 1. The four basic principles present in every eLearning design can be abbreviated to CRAP. According to The Non Designers Design Book by Robin Williams, the four basic principles that apply to designing anything (including eLearning) are: Contrast. 2. Most coherent, connected, and unified designs follow the principles of Gestalt, a term which means whole. Similarity. 3. Good Design Is Innovative.
