This book is about the implications of constructivism for instructional design practices, and more importantly, it is about a dialogue between instructional developers and learning theorists. Working with colleagues in each discipline, the editors were amazed to find a general lack of familiarity with each others' work. From an instructional design perspective, it seems that the practice of instructional design must be based on some conception of how people learn and what it means to learn. From a learning theory perspective, it seems obvious that the value of learning theory rests in the ability to predict the impact of alternative learning environments or instructional practices on what is learned. Thus the interchange of ideas between these disciplines is essential. As a consequence of both the information rich environment and the technological capability, business is seen moving away from a fixed curriculum and toward providing information and instruction when it is needed. These changes bring about a window of opportunity establishing a dialogue that will provide for a richer understanding of learning and the instructional environment required to achieve that learning. The editors hope that this book is the beginning of the conversation and that it will serve to spur continued conversation between those involved in learning theory and those involved in the design of instruction.

This book is about emerging models of design that are just beginning to be used by ID types. They are based on constructivist and chaos (nonlinear systems or "soft systems") theory. This book provides constructivist instructional design (CID) theorists with an opportunity to present an extended version of their design model. After an introductory chapter on the history of instructional design models, and a chapter on the guiding principles of CID, the creators of six different CID models introduce and explain their models. A final chapter compares the models, discusses the future of CID models, and discusses the ways constructivist designers and scholars can interact with, and work with, instructional technologists who use different paradigms.

Instructional design theory and practice has evolved over the past 30 years from an initial narrow focus on programmed instruction to a multidimensional field of study integrating psychology, technology, evaluation, measurement, and management. The growth of instructional design (ID) has occurred because of direct needs, problems, and goals from society. Its application in planning instruction first developed in the United States with the Department of Defense during World War II with the purpose of meeting immediate concerns for effective training of larger numbers of military personnel. From the beginning, ID has rapidly expanded into applications in industrial and executive training, vocational training, classroom learning, and professional education. Although ID has its roots in the U.S., applications and theoretical growth is an international activity. However, literature at the international level is still limited to either individual author contributions or collections primarily represented by single countries. As a result, there is no standard reference source that contains the rich variety of theories and applications to form the international foundation for the field. The goal of this two-volume set is to establish international foundations for ID theory, research, and practice within the framework of the two following objectives: * to identify and define the theoretical, research, and model foundations for ID, and * to bridge the gap between ID foundations and application. Volume I includes chapters on philosophical and theoretical issues on learning theory and ID models. Volume II provides an overview of the state of the art of solving ID problems. The contributors offer contrasting points of view which provide a rare opportunity to see the diversity and complexity in the field. The editorial committee has selected a wide range of internationally known authors to make presentations in the topic areas of the field.

One outcome of recent progress in educational technology is strong interest in providing effective support for learning in complex and ill-structured domains. We know how to use technology to promote understanding in simpler domains (e.g., orientation information, procedures with minimal-branching, etc.), but we are less sure how to use technology to support understanding in more complex domains (e.g., managing limited resources, understanding environmental impacts, etc.). Such domains are increasingly significant for society. Technology (e.g., collaborative tele-learning, digital repositories, interactive simulations, etc.) can provide conceptually and functionally rich domains for learning. However, this introduces the problem of determining what works in which circumstances and why. Research and development on these matters is reflected in this collection of papers. This research suggests a need to rethink foundational issues in educational philosophy and learning technology. One major theme connecting these papers is the need to address learning in the large - from a more holistic perspective. A second theme concerns the need to take learners where and as they are, integrating technology into effective learning places. Significant and systematic progress in learning support for complex domains demands further attention to these important issues.

Wer den Inhalt des Begriffs „Berufsbildung“ über einen längeren Zeitraum verfolgt, kann fasziniert beobachten, wie sich die Anforderungen der Wi- schaft immer stärker durchsetzen. Bildung erscheint als ein Relikt der 50er Jahre, einer Zeit, in der man es sich noch leisten konnte, auf „Philo- phien“ des vergangenen Jahrhunderts zurückzugreifen. Einmal beschritten, scheint der Weg von Bildung über Qualifikationen, Qualifikationsanfor- rungen, zur Performance unumkehrbar. Denn nur mit einer eindeutigen - xierung der Berufsbildung auf Umsatz und Ertrag können Unternehmen und Beschäftigte in Zeiten weltweiter Konkurrenz bestehen. E-Learning hat diese Entwicklung weiter gefördert. Die Unterstützung von Bildungsprozessen durch Technologien wurde vorangetrieben durch die Hoffnung, Kosten zu sparen, Lernzeiten zu reduzieren und Bildungs- halte jederzeit und ganz genau an die Anforderungen der Unternehmen - zupassen. Bei den dafür erforderlichen hohen Investitionen in Hard- und Software liegt es nahe, die Wirtschaftlichkeit dieser Investitionen mit den gleichen Rechnungen nachzuweisen, die auch für den Nachweis der Wi- schaftlichkeit anderer Investitionen eingesetzt werden. Und damit sind wir beim Thema dieses Buches.

This book addresses how to use very specific types of technology and focuses on how technology can be used as a thinking tool to foster meaningful learning. The book approaches learning from a constructivist view and relates it to using technology to engage meaningful learning.Within each chapter, the book provides different activities and implementation strategies in the Technique sections and follow-up questions in the Things to Think About sections. Very current uses of technology such as video theater, cybermentoring,creating homepages, and hypermedia are discussed throughout the book.
