Try not to become a man of success but a man of value. ~Albert Einstein
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. ~Vincent Van Gogh
May all the small acts of kindness, instructional outreaches, and participatory spontaneity that you and I engendered this year follow us into an exciting New Year! #2018!
This week’s Ed. Quote is in honor of my creative daughter, on her birthday!
“Electricity is not only present in a magnificent thunderstorm
and dazzling lightning, but also in a lamp; so also, creativity
exists not only where it creates great historical works,
but also everywhere human imagination combines, changes,
and creates anything new.”
~Lev Vygotsky, 1930/1967, cited in Smolucha, 1992, p. 54
The importance of instructional design for learning:
Instructional designers carry out “the practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources” (Januszewski & Molenda, 2007).
