Flirting w/ eLearning

Last weekend I posted a new infographic (Gagne’s 9 Events of Instruction) and I got some really good feedback about it.  One piece of feedback that I received from several people was to incorporate more graphics/icons into my infographic designs. Of course I think we can all agree that using visuals is only a good thing if it adds value by providing an instructional purpose. This weekend when I decided to make another graphic, I was careful to choose a few icons that I thought were really representative of the elements of PAF.

Bloom’s (Revised) Taxonomy

E-learning blog #EDCMOOC


Lorin Anderson’s revision of Bloom’s taxonomy for the cognitive domain.
In building digital learning paradigms, this framework will be helpful.

Maybe by collecting together some raw materials in this blog, I can clarify for myself some of the issues involved in e-learning.
