eLearning Strategies that Work Robert N. Bilyk
Christensen’s Prediction Clayton M. Christensen’s Prediction: In 10 years, computer-based, student- centric learning will account for 50 percent of the “seat miles” in U.S. schools. By 2024, roughly 80 percent of courses will be taught this way.
Robert’s Rule of Disorder Creating computer-based, student-centric learning can be fun and engaging for both the teacher and the student but as educators we need greater insight into…

Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of relevance: Effective learning is relevant to the learner’s life and work. Make it Relevant Get The Learner’s Attention Tell them what they will do that they couldn’t do before. Mapping Earthquake Data
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of emotional learning: Events that are accompanied by intense emotions result in long-lasting learning. Relate to issues that students care about Start with the student, not the content The London Blitz
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of reinforcement: Learners repeat behaviors that are rewarded. Tie instruction to a Learning Management System Recognize contribution Publish good work Questions about Frogs
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of individual differences: Different people learn in different ways. Use a variety of media (YouTube, PodCasts). Use physical activity, animation, imagery, language, abstract ideas, concrete uses, step by steps, problem solving… Web 2.0
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of practice and feedback: Learners cannot master skills without repeated practice and relevant feedback Use Variable Interval Queuing Strategies Use branching with feedback Surgical Instruments
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of active learning: Active responding produces more effective learning than passive listening or reading. Make students solve problems, offer judgments, make decisions… Don’t always tell students; Make them figure it out. Depth of Field / A Theory of the Earth
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of response level: Learners master skills and knowledge at the level at which they are required to respond during the learning process. Build activities that Require students to use their learning. 90 Days
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of learning domains: Different types of learning require different types of strategies Build vocabulary. Understand terms and concepts. Use concepts in procedures. Apply procedures to solving problems.
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of previous experience: New learning should be linked to (and build upon)the experiences of the learner Recall information that helps learners organize and store new information. Mapping the Earth
Thiagi’s Laws of Learning Law of self-direction: The older the student, the more s/he wishes to control the learning experience. Give the student choice. Video Producer
