Learning Activities (from George Siemans LTC )

Littlejohn and Pegler in Preparing for Blended e-Learning outline five learning activity techniques based on Laurillard’s Conversational Model. They produce the following matrix (reformatted):[25]

New options to create and share information (through aggregation and visualization) have significant implications. How we as educators teach, present content, allow learners to interact with content, and how we keep content sources current require new approaches. For many educators, however, the task may appear onerous or too complex.

Tools like Google Alerts (which generate email updates of topics you are interested in or currently tracking) provide a starting point. Or perhaps setting up a NetVibes account and following a handful of blogs or journals in your field is a more suitable beginning point. If visual imagery is important, create a flickr badge to pull photos from an account into a web page.

Small scale experimentation – with high payback – can be motivating. Adopting and exploring additional tools and concepts is more inviting once you’ve had success with certain tools
