Strategies for Advanced Learning: How Ancient Wisdom Enhances Modern Technology.
Schornack, Gary R.; Beck, Charles E.
This paper examines strategies to enhance learning, based on innovations in technology. It represents an evolution of thought from the ancient masters, great thinking, and the Great Learning all the way to the present. A syllabus for the future is constructed, using a model of communication, the Rhetorical Systems Model. The model is based on a systems viewpoint that examines the inputs into the system, looks at how information is processed, and finally looks at the output of such a system. This paper discusses the educator's role; educational assumptions for advanced learning; philosophical and practical intentions; serving high-tech students; educational genres and practices; the educational product, or lesson; the learning experience; the feedback system; and movement toward a comprehensive model of instruction.
