Elemental Learning as a Framework for E-Learning
Dempsey, John V.; Litchfield, Brenda C.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Prague, Czech Republic, Jul 23-26, 2013)
Analysis of learning outcomes can be a complex and esoteric instructional design process that is often ignored by educators and e-learning designers. This paper describes a model of analysis that fosters the real-life application of learning outcomes and explains why the model may be needed. The Elemental Learning taxonomy is a hierarchical model composed of two primary types of learning: (a) elemental learning composed of actual and simulated elements; and (b) synthetic learning, composed of procedural understanding, conceptual understanding, and related knowledge. The importance of iteration and intuition in learning analysis is also discussed. [For the full proceedings, see ED562127.]
