1. Learning theories

1.1. Connectivism

1.1.1. It is a learning theory of the digital age

1.1.2. a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources while nurturing and maintaining those connections

1.1.3. It is up to the learner to go out attain knowledge

1.1.4. can rest in a community, a network, or a database

1.1.5. Thinking and emotions influence each other.

1.2. Cognitive Load

1.2.1. information processing theory, explaining the limits of the working memory, long term memory and schema

1.2.2. There is a finite amount that the working memory can process. overloading (too much, too fast) can inhibit learning processes

1.2.3. Working memory works best with 5-10 disconnected items at once

1.2.4. knowledge enters through working memory and then is put into long term memory for ``storage``

1.3. Constructivist

1.3.1. The learner constructs their own knowledge on a base of prior existing knowledge

1.3.2. Teacher helps to facilitate learning

1.3.3. Learning is an active process where everyone brings their own experiences

1.3.4. the learner generates meanings and solutions through shared understanding during colaboration

1.4. Behaviourism

1.4.1. focuses purely on observable behavior

1.4.2. classical & operant conditioning using external reward

1.4.3. therapeutic techniques, behavioral modification

1.4.4. direct instruction includes structure, planning.they range from breaking down tasks to modelling to practice and review until the step is mastered

2. Technology Theories

2.1. Media ecology

2.1.1. Can NOT be explained in one definition

2.1.2. In part a study of media as environments

2.1.3. how our interaction with media affects our chances of survival through perception, understanding.feeling and value

2.1.4. focuses on how humans are affected by technology(opposite of SCOT, where humans affect technology)

2.2. SCOT

2.2.1. Social Construction of Technology (technological constructivism)

2.2.2. The actions of humans shape and form technology

2.2.3. technology cannot be understood without the understanding of how it fits into our social context

2.2.4. The success and failure of technology is solely determined by the social majority, not by how well it operates or functions


3.1. The blending of 3 kinds of knowledge

3.1.1. Content

3.1.2. Pedagogy

3.1.3. Technology

3.2. Three overlapping subsets occur:

3.2.1. TC Technological Content

3.2.2. TP Technological Pedagogy

3.2.3. PC pedagogical Content

3.3. As the three intersect, you get your final product TPACK

3.3.1. Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge

3.4. In other words it the correct technology that will best transfer certain content in a specific pedagogical way

4. Philosophy of Teachnology

4.1. It is derived from the Philosophy of teaching

4.2. It is a written collection of an educators core values and ideas about technology, that will be used while teaching

4.3. has statements used in the teaching of students as well as the advancement of ones professional knowledge
