Exploring 5 E and Learning Technologies

What do you understand about instructional design from what you have read so far?

Instructional design is an evolving science.  The role of technology has increased the pace of learning, provided richness and depth to the learning process, and potentially gives learners an engaging experience.  Approaches to instructional design will continue to evolve as learning technologies rapidly evolve.  Global approaches and trends to research in instructional design methods will be interesting to follow.

What model will you present for class? Why? What interests you about it?

I am very interested in the effect of the 5E instructional design method utilizing learning technologies on middle school rural students.  Recent literature review suggests a need to explore the 5E instructional model and 21st century skills or learning outcomes.  New Designs for Elementary School Science and Health describes the BSCS 5E instructional model as phases  to include Engagement, Explanation, Exploration, Elaboration,  and Evaluation (BSCS, 1989).
