Notes on slice

Last week in Portland I was attending the Slice of Life Workshop for Multimedia Developers, Educators, and Purveyors

As part of my new, open attitude to blogging about work, I’m posting some notes and links from the conference.

My favorite moments of the week were listening and discussing with Geoff Norman on the topic of cognitive psychology and learning theory as applied to computer based education. His talk changed my whole perspective on researching eductional effectiveness of on-line modules.

He recommended the book “e-Learning and the Science of Instruction : Proven Guidelines for Consumers and Designers of Multimedia Learning” by Ruth Colvin Clark, Richard E. Mayer.

The other tid-bit I found particularly interesting was a presntation on applying video gaming principles to education. http://www.tinkering.net.
