Q4) Goes back to putting the learner in control. S/he must WANT to learn & change behavior. #lrnchat
Michelle Baker (@MichelleLBaker) Fri Aug 09 00:54:00 +0000 2013

q3) reactance = push; decreases the ability to learn #lrnchat
MelissaRoane (@Melisser33) Fri Aug 09 00:54:28 +0000 2013

A3) Reactance immediately takes focus off goal and puts you in the defensive stance..Any learning that might have occured is gone #lrnchat

Clark Quinn (@Quinnovator) Fri Aug 09 01:01:17 +0000 2013

A3) telling people to stop doing what they know they need to do so we can tell them what we think they need to do doesn’t help. #lrnchat
David Kelly (@LnDDave) Fri Aug 09 01:01:47 +0000 2013

A4) We should be helping people connect the dots from their performance to training to their impact on org, customer, etc. #lrnchat

Q3- doesn’t that imply the opposite of flow? #lrnchat
—Alicia Sanchez (@gamesczar) Fri Aug 02 00:56:43 +0000 2013

Q3) Depends upon the emotional stress involved too, if too much pressure not enjoyable and flow not as natural #lrnchat

—Marianne Keith (@Marianne_Pudd) Fri Aug 02 00:57:10 +0000 2013

a3) like playing games, engaging tasks take us into the ‘flow zone’, when we’re learning and performing in perfect synchrony #lrnchat
—Clark Quinn (@Quinnovator) Fri Aug 02 00:57:11 +0000 2013

Q3) The learner determines which tasks are cognitively demanding – I have not proof. #lrnchat

@gamesczar that’s what I was thinking? #lrnchat

—Kelly Smith (@kelly_smith01) Fri Aug 02 00:58:56 +0000 2013

Isn’t flow when you loose track of time? Not when you perceive a task to take for of it? Q2 #lrnchat

A3) cognitively demanding tasks can make one more motivated, causing lose track of time #lrnchat

—Soozie Bea (@soozietwits) Fri Aug 02 01:00:09 +0000 2013

@MattGuyan @gamesczar OK, I’m confused. For me flow and time aren’t necessarily dependent on one another? #lrnchat
—Ryan Tracey (@ryantracey) Fri Aug 02 01:00:13 +0000 2013

Q3) Had a day like that today only 3 cog demanding tasks at once but day flowed and joy ensued #lrnchat
—alod (@lodtrain) Fri Aug 02 01:01:23 +0000 2013

@soozietwits @lodtrain yes, while it can be motivating for some, it could get demotivating for some others #lrnchat

—Marianne Keith (@Marianne_Pudd) Fri Aug 02 01:04:02 +0000 2013

@ryantracey @MattGuyan they don’t have to be, but in my exp, when you achieve flow, a junc btw challenge & skill. Time flies! #lrnchat
—Alicia Sanchez (@gamesczar) Fri Aug 02 01:04:15 +0000 2013

A3) Flow is energized focus. However, if the abilities and task don’t match, there is no positive energy to create flow. #lrnchat

—Paul Signorelli (@trainersleaders) Fri Aug 02 01:04:41 +0000 2013

@MattGuyan @gamesczar Agree, but that’s an outcome of engagement. Something that takes a long time can still induce flow, no? #lrnchat

#lrnchat July 25: Chunking in Learning

July 25, 2013

The Journal of Education Psychology defines chunking as the strategy of organizing items into familiar manageable units – making short-term memory more efficient based on the idea that short-term memory is limited.  Chucking seems especially relevant to e-learning.  In her article Chunking Information for Instructional Design, Connie Malamed said:

Chunking information is particularly important for online learning. Without an instructor to answer questions and to guide the learning process, eLearning content has to be organized in a logical and progressive way through chunking. Chunking doesn’t only work for your typical linear instruction, it also works for learning objects, for non-linear approaches to learning as well as discovery learning, because it groups together conceptually related information. Content that is conceptually related is meaningful, making it easier to understand.
