Learning theories and online learning

I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about learning theory for a number of reasons, among them the fact that my assignment for Pedagogy First for Week 23 is to develop a presentation about educational theory and online learning. So I’ve taken my best shot at it.

I’m posting two versions of this presentation to this blog entry. The first is a youtube vid which I put together doing a screencast (by way of screencast-o-matic) of my power point slide. The video is 9 minutes, however, and I thought that maybe, just maybe, not everyone would want to listen to me talking it all the way through, so I’m also posting a slideshare of the same slides (more or less…prob made a few tweeks as I was doing the screencast) for impatient folks who might prefer to move quickly through the slides (and incidentally I would probably be among this latter group).  So here they are…

It was interesting and challenging to sort through some of this information, and I hope my summary makes at least some sense! As I suggest on the video, I’d be pleased for comments and suggestions for improvement!
