A Hierarchy of Learning



Originated by Edgar Dale in 1946, his Cone of Experience has taken on many iterations over the years. Nevertheless, I appreciate what it conveys. Read more — "Tales of the Undead . . . Learning Theories: The Learning Pyramid," which is found on the Association of College & Research Libraries' (ACRL) blog.

I agree with this. I think lectures can be immensely engaging, however, if done properly. Anecdotes and teaching through emotion, being sincere, telling jokes, are wonderful tools when delivering a lecture. Students have various learning styles, too--some students learn wonderfully through listening to a lecture and taking notes.

Nice education blog. I have my own! I am just looking around the blogger community picking out people with my interests.

Thanks for collecting so many resources on your blog. I can see that you've worked really hard to share many links and ideas with your readers.

However, the information above, though it may appear to have scientific support, has been exhaustively researched and found to have no basis in science. In fact, the "Tales of the Undead" link you cite debunks it.

An article from the scientific journal Educational Technology shows no research backing for the information. (Subramony, D., Molenda, M., Betrus, A., and Thalheimer, W. (2014). The Mythical Retention Chart and the Corruption of Dale’s Cone of Experience. Educational Technology, Nov/Dec 2014, 54(6), 6-16.)

The information presented is likely to produce more harm than good, promoting poor learning designs and hurting learners.

While we might abstract some beneficial notions from the percentages portrayed in the misleading information -- namely that encouraging realistic practice has benefits -- there are numerous faulty concepts within the bogus percentages that can do real harm. For example, by having people think that there are benefits to seeing over hearing, or hearing over reading, we are sending completely wrong messages about how learning works.

Most importantly, recent advances in learning science have really come together over the last two decades. The misleading information was first reported in 1914, with no research backing. It's better to follow more recent findings than information that has no scientific basis. See, for example, the book Make it Stick by Brown, Roediger, and McDaniel. Julie Dirksen's Design for How People Learn is another great selection.

I'm part of a larger community of folks called the Debunker Club who are attempting to encourage the use of proven, scientifically-based learning factors in the learning field.

I'm going to be posting about this misleading information on my blog. I hope you'll comment and respond to my post if you wish. I (and the debunker community in general) want to learn how other people feel about the issues and ideas surrounding the original information and our approach to debunking myths and sharing evidence.

Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.

A writer should always try to keep its writing very simple and clear. Always use facts which are easily acceptable by general people because they are very close to their assumptions and they welcome such kind of facts.

Indonesia merupakan salah satu negara yang mempunyai tingkat kebutuhan akan kendaraan roda empat yang cukup banyak. Beberapa merk mobil berhasil menjadi primadona di negara satu ini, apalagi mereka yang menawarkan jenis mobil MPV. Ya, sampai dengan saat ini MPV masih menjadi andalan masyarakat Indonesia. Meskipun saat ini beberapa merk sudah mulai mengeluarkan model baru yang cukup menarik perhatian yaitu SUV. Jika dilihat daftar harga mobil SUV saat ini memang tidak jauh berbeda dengan jenis mobil MPV.

Art, in this situation, becomes a means as well as an end in itself; the repeated assaults of death, loss and separation have taught us that there is no eternal, permanent core that guarantees stability against the systemic unpredictability and mutability of adult life.

I?m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.
