EduBlog Game One - Round 3

The GREEN Team task

NB you are in the green team if you contributed to "The role of risk in developing innovative education is . . ." in the first round.

The blue team contributed 20 entries in the first round to the incomplete sentence "Conditions for learning are optimised when . . . . ." In the second round, the red team has reduced the words to 50 and these are included below for your ease of reading. In LESS than 26 words, summarize, plagiarize, steal, modify, invent, add and/or analysis their sentences to create your completion of the sentence. Your goal is to create a version to please as many people as possible, including the blue and red team members. (Hint: Using someone else's ideas is the highest form in the art of pleasing someone). Place your entry as a comment to this post.

Conditions for learning are optimised when an educator is punctual, organised, know the content, recognises learners past experiences, encourages dialects, give feedback, share resources and last but not least applies various learning styles to meet each and every participant’s needs. Students also need to be motivated and willing to participate.

Conditions for learning are optimised when the material is relevant to the learner, and engaging, challenging and motivating. The learning environment must be comfortable and safe for the learner. Outcomes need to be clear and the facilitator needs to model appropriate learning behaviours. Instruction should be innovative and feedback constructive.

Conditions for learning are optimised when the learner have achievable objective and strong motivation. Furthermore, learning contexts are also concerned regarding relevant and appropriate to learners. The knowledge is built on learners’ experience and interest. This assists learners to improve their cognitive, physical skills and adapt them into their life.

Conditions for learning are optimised when participants are treated in an adult manner (as everyone has different personal experiences, education and knowledge to bring to the learning environment). Learning has to be relevant (recognisable, emotionally engaging and usable to the learner). The learning environment should provide room for mistakes.

…the learner feels motivated, comfortable, supported and safe in the learning environment.
The learner’s background knowledge and personal experience needs consideration when setting achievable goals in program development. Informal and formal assessment provides effective measurement of the benefits of the learning experience and drives the program in a forward direction.

Learning conditions are optimised where a positive shared ethos and respect for people is a high priority of all parties involved, the content engages their "heart, hand and mind", by utilising a range of innovative approaches and collaborative learning and students portray a high degree of self motivation to learn.

The conditions for learning are optimized when there is alignment between learning outcomes learning activities and assessment, learning is authentic, the learning environment is safe and supportive, the learner and teacher learn together and from each other, learning is scaffolded, collaboration encouraged, time for reflection, and development of a learning community.

John said...

The role of the educator is emphasised in each submission, in that they need to be punctual, organised and recognise learners past experiences. Educator should also attempt to encourage the learner to develop an understanding of their own needs and make clear the outcomes expected and model appropiate learning behaviours.

Conditions for learning are optimised when the learner feels motivated, comfortable, supported and safe within the given environment. Educators can help create this environment by being organised, know the content well, recognising learner’s past experiences, providing feedback, helping them to add to their knowledge base and providing feedback where needed.

Lutfia said...

Conditions for learning are optimized when using diverse and innovative ways of learning expression. Content must have constructively aligned with the objectives and the assessment process. Learner must be motivated to participate with individual goals set and to strive towards, which it will measure the benefits of the learning experience.

…principles of active learning are utilised effectively to engage, immerse, motivate, and challenge targeted learners. Considerations for differing learning needs and constructive feedback are evident.
