Review of 4SPPIces and E-design template

I chose 4SPPIces as a representation. The healthy eating example is laid down in a diagram that is very accessible. The project aspires to create a common language that promotes collaboration between teachers and technicians. I’m in favour of a common language in principle, but this can also be a barrier to others so this has dangers and may militate against this idea. I was struck by the description of dataflow, not show in the paper. I think that the capacity to describe the learning ‘conversation’ of ‘incomes’ and ‘outcomes’ is useful. The model provides a structure to think about four significant aspects of learning design.
I also chose e-design template. I didn’t find the graphic representation very helpful, so I split it up in table form, in order to understand it fully. I was able to see the progression across the stages more clearly and the gradual emergence of the autonomous learner. It also reminded me of the four stages of competence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_stages_of_competence and Blooms Taxonomy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom's_taxonomy . It has a comforting familiarity.
