In other words, here’s hoping for some socially distanced wine and conversation with you. Maybe even some about learning sciences and visualizations.

Dad’s memorial will be on Labor Day -his birthday. I think we’re gonna drive back, so I’m planning on coming to “Miwakee” for a visit 😉

Steph was a part of some of the committee work with me at where this came up in discussion last year. I’ve got a few reports from MIT that really got educational humanists cranked up a few years ago.

It’s a longer story than I want to get into here. Working on an article now where some of this will be covered.

Agreed. Testing a design’s assertions through its objectives IS hypothesis testing.

In one branch of learning engineering, Blair, computer scientists have been explaining to ed tech professionals that we need to use more learning science in our work. They have been shocked that many of the IDs they encounter know nothing of learning sciences or data sciences.

Now I’m just playing. These have been interesting questions. I’ve been wrestling with many of these very same questions during my past couple years of work with the IEEE on the episteological and ontological frameworks for learning engineering.

You brought it up relative to learning design. Perhaps u don’t believe one should do that, either? Even tho a learning design may be able to maximize the probabilities that one might learn something specific, given specific conditions of learning (Do I hear ... Bob Gagne???)

And I’d suggest that engaging robust, communications helps form identity. Especially in professional settings.

., some have it subsumed in ed tech, others don’t. Depends on the “flavor” of your training

Blair, no offense but snippets of Bloom’56 and talk of learning designs erasing instructional science seems like word salad. What is your point? I can’t imagine you believe Educational Technology exist in a vacuum.

Nope. Just looking for more/ better actionability where learning designs and ed tech platforms intersect.

Isn’t it awesome that educational technologies have become tools we can all use to improve learning and performance outcomes in so many different settings?

I remember back in the days when Educatiinal Technology was studied as a field...That was before ALL the disciplines discovered they could ALL use educational technologies for teaching and learning, training and professional development.

Unless you can’t get anyone to listen. And then maybe the renegade is the only compassionate professional in the room.
