Students as Library Detectives and Books as Clues: An Application of ISD in K-12 Schools

Instructional Systems Design (ISD) is the systematic development of instructional strategies that are grounded in both learning and instructional theory. ISD is usually overlooked as a useful methodology in K-12 schools. ISD is extremely expensive in terms of the time required to develop instruction, and it often seems more appropriate as an approach for meeting goals that are found within business and industry. Because of both the expense and the seeming alignment between ISD and the goals of business and industry, school personnel often overlook the use of ISD as a technology for promoting learning. In this article, the authors report the application of the Morrison, Ross and Kemp (2004) model of instructional systems design in a K-12 school setting. They focus, in particular, on a school library project, but they think both the flexibility of ISD and its ability to blend with other design approaches makes it an appropriate design methodology across the K-12 curriculum.
