Here I am with Week 3 material.

Different types of learning: it is not the first time, I hear about this; still, I now have a new acronym to remember about them: VARK, Visual, Auditory, Read and write, Kinesthetic.

This week, I have to develop a Learning Object: “a collection of content items, practice items, and assessment items that are combined based on a single learning objective” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning_object).

The idea is to ensure all learning types are covered. 2 taxonomies are proposed:

  • The one from Diana Laurillard, seen before: acquisition / discussion / investigation / practice / collaboration / production
  • Another one from Nesta: Learning from experts, Learning with others, Learning through making, Learning through exploring, Learning through inquiry, Learning through practicing, Learning through assessment, Learning in and across settings

I’ve been testing my type of intelligence: http://www.edutopia.org/multiple-intelligences-assessment [“intrapersonal”] and my personality: http://www.16personalities.com/ [ISFJ].MultipleIntelligence_20150614

And then, this is a nice video, knowing that my son is soon a teenager… 😉

Bloom’s taxonomy is described in several resources, which I’ll have to dive into later on…

After Learning Object, another important concept is “Rubrics”: “Rubrics have become popular with teachers as a means of communicating expectations for an assignment, providing focused feedback on works in progress, and grading final products.” (from http://rubistar.4teachers.org/index.php?screen=WhatIs)
