Digital+Information+Media Models for Educational Revolution
We seek to simplify the world by dividing it into categories: science and art, humans and technology, them and us, global and citizens… But the space between these divisions is often the most dynamic. Digital + Media + Information is one of the biggest “in-between” spaces. In the DIMMER we’re not supposed to fit precisely between the disciplinary lines! We’re encouraged to eliminate them.
The process of Learning Design refers to the activity of designing units of learning, learning activities or/and learning environment. Learning Designs have pedagogically informed learning activities which make effective use of appropriate tools and resources. The basic idea of Educational Modeling Language and Learning Design is in essence simple. It represents a vocabulary which users of any pedagogical approach understand, and into which existing designs can be translated. The core of LD can be summarised as the view that, when learning, people in specific groups and roles engage in activities using an environment with appropriate resources and services.
The field of Learning Design seeks to describe the “process” of education – the sequences of activities facilitated by an educator that is often at the heart of small group teaching.
