  •  
    This article describes instructional theory that supports post-industrial education and training systems - ones that are customized and learner-centered, in which student progress is based on learning rather than time. The article describes universal methods of instruction, situational methods, core ideas of the post-industrial paradigm of instruction, the importance of and problems with task-based instruction, a vision of an instructional theory for post-industrial education and training, and the roles that may be played by the teacher, the learner, and technology in the new paradigm. Keywords: Instructional theory, post-industrial paradigm, task-basd instruction

    Is this Reigeluth's recent publication? I plan to include this in the reading list for next year. Thanks for sharing.

    I saw the news on Kursat Hoca's FB profile. It is published in Magazine about Distance Education (Revista de Educación a Distancia). I like the idea of learning without time constraints. I don't know why :)

The Death of Theory in Educational Research - 1 views

  •  
    This was Evrim Hoca's advice for us in our last face-to-face course. Have fun! "The resulting 'theory-practice gap' means that-I would argue-educational theory has been largely ineffectual in improving educational practice. Major 'reform' movements are frequently grounded in ideology rather than in educational research, at least partly because research is not seen as influential on practice."

Constructivism with Second Life Island Project - 1 views

  •  
    Here is my constructivist environment example. In the past, I installed the second life software considering that it was a game. I roamed and roamed in worlds that already were created, chatted with people in another countries with my avatar. Then I thought that it was boring. It was just like sitting on Sunshine and talking with friends. Why I had to do this via my computer? This video shows us how Second Life Worlds can be used to create constructivist learning environments. In the video, a Second Life World that was prepared by a group of people called TELLS TEAM is presented. In this world, you can attend lectures, have group meetings for discussion, work on simulations and role plays whereever you are. All participants including the teacher has an avatar and walking, sitting, chatting as if they were in the same room. In this project, learners are active participants. They roam, talk, immediately can fly to role playing sessions and etc. Teacher is only responsible to present initial knowledge. I could not find how they evaluate the learners. However, it is up to you. This environment is just a tool. You can arrange your role plays, your simulations, and also your assesment. Also they have some guides to use the environment effectively on this web site: https://sites.google.com/site/secondlifeuwnshss/Home

    Thanks for sharing. I made several Piagetian experiment to my 2 year old cousin and since she was in preoperational stage, she could not answer them correctly:), Yengem was offended since she thought that her daughter was not smart enough, and my aim was to show that. I told about the theory and now she knows about Piaget too, that's science:).
  •  
    Your are lucky, erdem. You can apply this theory in your cousin's life. When I was watching television during this holiday, I realised that a program gives information about how parents act their children according to their age. They were using the same theory and also behaviorism. They use reinforcement and punishment, token economy, and especially time out method. After our behaiviorism section, I realised that I can elaborate this program according to the knowledge. So parents may be aware of their child's development after this programme and us. Why not? :)
  •  
    It is really weird to watch the reasonings and answers although we read that they are so. I was surprised once again.
  •  
    Yes hatice, actually I can go on applying the theory to my cousin by hiding it from Yengem, it is unethical I know:). May be I should wait until I have my own children. I can give permission myself to apply Piaget's theory to my children, no problem:), I agree saime, in one ofthe video a little girl was shown a simple triangle and was asked to draw exactly what she saw, and she drew a different sketch and showed the corners of her triangle that was completely in different places. It was in the video that Evrim Hoca posted to Diigo, I guess.

The secret power of time-Philip Zimbardo - 2 views

  •  
    This is video is generally about the time perception of people and its effects on human life. The first five minutes give background info, then it talks about the effects of time perception on educational processes. I found it very interesting, I hope will, too.
  •  
    There are so many interesting metaphors. I liked them. The associations between educational concepts and time perception are very interesting in this video.
