Transcript

  • 1. Self directed learning in MoodleHERDSA 2011 workshop
    Mark Drechsler
    Director, Consulting
    NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 2. Why this presentation?
    Lee, Kumar & Barker (2010) introduce a framework for an adaptive learner directed model for e-learning.
    Model incorporates Experiential Learning Theory (ELT) and Self Regulated Learning Theory (SRL).
    This presentation implements a potential delivery method for this model using Moodle.

  • 3. Moodle tools of the trade:
    A Moodle 2.0 course
    Groups & groupings
    Conditional activities
    Group self select module (third party plugin)
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 4. The components

  • 6. The components
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 7. The four learning modes:
    Thinking (understanding theoretical concepts)
    Reflecting (on past experiences)
    Observing (current experiences)
    Experimenting (trying out the theory in real time)

    Learning Mode 2
    Selection of a learning mode hides all other content from the student

    Completion of any learning mode triggers completion of the learning topic

  • 12. Note
    ‘Checkpoint activities’ should not be considered as ‘blockers’, but as self-assessment guides for students (unless you want to make them blockers of course).
    In their model, Lee, Kumar & Barker suggest quizzes as self-test mechanisms – the model presented here provides more generic checkpoints.

  • 13. Combining learning paths
    Linear:
    Branching:

  • 14. What it looks like in practice
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 15. Designer view
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Note – all options are shown, as well as the learning modes.
  • 16. Designer view
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Information shown to all students about how to change learning mode.
  • 17. Student view (initial)
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    No content shown to students until they have selected a learning mode.
  • 18. Student view (choosing mode)
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Students are guided to choose a learning mode.
  • 19. Student view (post choice)
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Student’s choice determines which learning activities they see.
  • 20. Designer – gradebook view
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Activities separated into the four learning modes in the gradebook.
  • 21. Designer – grade calculation
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
    Gradebook formative calculation takes maximum of the four learning modes prior to the final assessment
  • 22. Course building process
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 23. This exemplar has been:
    Simple – each learning path has had one or two activities and no checklist activities;
    Incomplete – has not included Lee, Barker & Kumar’s concepts of providing guidance to students based on self-assessment quizzes;
    Flexible – as it only requires students to complete one of the four learning modes (which may be a good or bad thing!)
    (c) 2011 NetSpot Pty Ltd
  • 24. Summary
    Groups & Groupings allow for different content to be made available to different students (ELT).
    Conditional activities allow for sequencing and branching of events, as well as checkpoint events (SRL).

  • 25. Summary
    All of this possible in Moodle 2.0
    Group selection module available at http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-2868 (with thanks to Adam Olley for his work updating to 2.0)
    http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-24419 (Conditional Topics) would make this far easier – vote!
