      Week 3 History of IT II (Contemporary Period)

      Questions of week 3:

      1- In most of the articles the authors say that technology could not revolutionize education as expected. Even Cuban, Kirkpatrick and Peck (2001) argue that it will not be much different even in 2050. What are the reasons behind this slow change? How can this situation be improved (or can it be improved?)?
      2- Make a prediction about the close future of the field. (2-3 paragraphs)
      3- As stated by Turkoglu (2004) the main idea behind the Village Institutions was  "is icinde ogrenme", do you think this was a threat to intellectual development of students? Have you observed any Instructional Technology related issue in this reading?

      Week 4 Current Controversies

      Questions of week 4:

      1. How would you answer someone who charged that “your field has really failed to make a positive impact on education (or training)?”. In responding, you might want to refer to the status of the field and perhaps some issues and trends.
      2. Based on the Clark-Kozma debate, what is your position on the question of whether (or how) media affect learning? Justify.
      3. If media themselves do not improve instruction, what is so great about Instructional Technology?  As the question is asked in business,”what is your value proposition?” That is, in what way does IT claim to “add value” to the enterprise of training or education?

        Week 5 Theories of Learning and Instruction

        Questions of week 5:

        1- Is Chomsky's learning theory different than mainstream learning theories? If yes/no, why? Do you agree on his criticism towards Behaviorism? why?
        2- Does Behaviorism have any continuing value to instructional technologists? Make a claim in favor of or opposed to the employment of behaviorist principles?
        HINT: Your answer should make it clear that you have a good grasp of what the principles of operant conditioning are and how they have been and could be applied to instruction.  Think of programmed instruction, Personalized System of Instruction, etc.
        3- In his GreenBook-III chapter, Reigeluth (2009) explains what ID theory is and is not. Where does Behaviorism fit in these groups and what is Behaviorism's relationship with each one (e.g. Behaviorism and curriculum theory, behaviorism and ID theory, etc.?
        4- Write 3 questions/issues related to this week's topic.

        Week 6 Theories of Learning and Instruction II

        Questions of Week 6:

        1. Would you recommend that an instructional designer adhere to one of these theoretical perspectives consistently or work out their own eclectic philosophy? Why? (Do not forget to add pros and cons of your position)

        2. Watch the video and answer: Which learning theory is applied in this classroom? Why? Is it really possible to implement such a classroom, what are the requirements and challenges?
        Take a position and answer this question.

        3. As an Instructional Technologist, present your own "philosophy of instruction". How do you realize this philosophy to real life settings? Specify what audience you have in mind (e.g. children in school, college students, adults in nonformal education, corporate training...). Do not forget to cite relevant literature to support your arguments - No opinion paper please!

        Hint:  You might then think about the factors that you have to consider when planning a lesson, such as motivation, presenting new information, allowing practice, providing feedback, evaluating, etc. 
        4- Write three questions related with this week issues.

            Week 8 Performance Technology

            Questions of Week 8:

            1 - All institutions and individuals need to improve themselves. As this is a natural human activity, do we really need a science like HPT? Can't we just take it granted that this is happening due to natural causes?
            2 - Imagine you are a consultant in an organization (pick any one you want). You are reported that there is a performance problem...

            1.      Defining the potential problems, and their reasons
            2.      Why we need HPT to solve our problem?
            3.      How can HPT can solve this problem?
            4.      What might be the potential results after HPT?
            As an example, think about what advice you might give to K-12 school / university people about HPT.  Is there any possible relevance of HPT to schools?  (or colleges?)  Who would be the "performers?"  What would be the potential performance deficiencies?  What interventions could be used other than instruction?
            HINT-2:  Look around your own environment and count how many interventions  your university has set up to enable you to achieve more.
            3 - What are key constructs associated with performance technology (e.g. definition of PT itself, job aid, EPSS, non-training interventions, motivational systems, expert systems, organizational development)?
            4 - Write 3 questions/issues

            5-Decide on your term project topic, Write the title and 1-2 paragraph of explanation of your paper.

              Week 9 Implementation and Change

              Questions of Week9: 

              1- Because of your renown as an expert in educational technology you have been invited to serve as a consultant to the Ministry of Education for the new technology integration process. There is potential for a long-term consulting role as this plan is developed and implemented, but at the moment they are interested only in help on developing a general change-management strategy. Essentially, what she wants from you is a general description of what needs to be done, by whom, in what stages.
              What are Constraints “anticipated barriers", brief suggestions on how to cope with them. Write a brief report to the Ministry of Education and convince them that you can help them in the long run too.
              2- The five perceived attributes of an innovation are relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability, and observability. Think of an innovation that you, your organization, or someone you know has recently adopted (For example: Starting to make shopping on the Web) . Which of the perceptions do you think were most important in the adoption decision? Which perceptions were not important? Do you believe that it is possible to measure people's perceptions and design a product that is "perception friendly" ? Why or why not?
              3- Watch the video and answer: The video mentiones about several different paradigm change cases, is it possible to create a similar paradigm change in education? Under which conditions?
              4- 3 questions/issues to discuss.
