It’s been a busy first term, but a highlight was delivering a PD session on one of my favourite examples of instructional design research in Mayer’s principles of multimedia learning. Great, practical advice for developing multimedia-rich learning experiences.
Thanks to Dave McAlinden for being a sounding board as I put these together!
Recently I was asked to give a talk to first year IBDP students about the role of knowledge in ITGS as part of their regular TOK class. I chose to invoke the legendary Claude Shannon in discussing the transformative effect digitisation had on knowledge, and tie it in to the often specious arguments people make about the “half-life” of knowledge.
