Presenting a topic from multiple perspectives can achieve this. Educational Technology Magazine, 50(2), pp. The real motivation for learners is learning.”.

Feedback has long been recognised as the most important form of guidance. Too often, instructional programs focus only on the demonstration phase and ignore the other phases in this cycle of learning.

Mayer (2001) demonstrated that some combinations of multimedia (text & graphics, for example) can compete for attention and therefore increase cognitive load for the student, while other combinations (audio and graphics, for example) support one another and promote more effective learning. This guide was synthesised from M. David Merrill’s 2002 paper, available here. If they do not, the instruction should be structured in such a way that provides the organisational schema for the new knowledge. 0000008492 00000 n Too much instruction starts with abstract representations for which learners have insufficient foundation. g��=1T�A?��`�Q�/��:�� �W�2 endstream endobj 77 0 obj 729 endobj 78 0 obj << /Filter /FlateDecode /Length 77 0 R >> stream 0000009198 00000 n Most theorists agree that a single problem, or giving little or no guidance (sink-or-swim) is not effective.

Merrill’s principles draw from several instructional design theories and models, identifying and articulating the design principles on which these theories agree. However, generally the steps outlined below will be followed to write a lesson plan: review the lesson specification in order “Geometry will be important to you later in life because there’s going to be a test six weeks from now.”.

Activation also involves stimulating mental models that can be modified or tuned to help learners incorporate new knowledge into what they already know. 0000006266 00000 n Present new material in small steps with student practice after each step 3.
