Transcript of Best Decade: 2010 and Beyond (2014)

In order to fully understand and appreciate where LDT is today, we must first understand its history and evolution. From its history, we will unlock the building blocks that shaped LDT as a whole. In the 21st century, LDT has undergone revolutionary changes unprecedented in history.
The history of “Educational technology … can be traced back to the time when tribal priests systemized bodies of knowledge, and early cultures invented pictographs or sign writing to record and transmit information.”
(Paul Saettler, 1990)
There were three major theoretical perspectives that formed LDT:
– Behaviorism
– Cognitivism
– Constructivism
What prevailed?
"Constructivism in its current incarnation is complemented by media and technologies that offer learners multiple perspectives, formats, and options for sharing and expressing their ideas. Thus, the
, having emerged in the mid-
90’s, with its networked, interactive
environments, accessible through
portable and handheld devices, offers functionality that goes beyond
behavioristic or cognitivistic worldviews,
and recasts learning as a ubiquitous, experiential, self-driven activity"
(Whelan p.15).
The Internet
Before the Internet:

Abacus---Approximately 3000 BC
Punched Card Devices---1800s
First Electronic Computers---1940s
Microcomputer Systems---1980s
After the Internet:
Three once-separate disciplines connect:
Discipline Convergence
Systematic instructional design
Educational computing
Educational media

So what is the best decade
in the history of LDT?
There was no Internet!
In 1993
Getting Warmer...
Apple introduced the Newton, the first popular PDA. Mosaic, the first popular web browser, was released by NCSA.
In 1994
In 1995
Windows 95 was released, completing Microsoft’s transition to a Mac-like GUI.
In 2000
The number of Web hosts passed 100,000,000
With improving technology and increasing networking, education is starting to become available anytime and anywhere!!
Improved job performance
Three core areas of mobile learning were formed:

1. Authoring and Publishing
2. Delivery and Tracking
3. Content Development
Smart mobile devices
Lifelong Learners
LDT: 2010 and Beyond
Zoom or Scroll in
to see
the future!
Netscape’s first browser was released.
On Demand information
Pre-designed education and training materials only
Laborious methods for finding materials and archiving
Limited availablity of resources
LDT Linear History:
1940: The origins of Instructional Design, World War II
1946: Edgar Dales' Cone of Experience
1950-1960: The Programmed Instruction Movement
1967: Formative Evaluation
1970: Systems Approach
1980: Personal Computing into the Design Process
1990: Constructivist Theory and Importance of Performance
2000: Rise of Internet and Online Learning
2010 and forward: e-Tools increasing usage, global possibilities
Portable information
Efficiency - saving time and money for all industries, businesses and education
The 21st Century
Educational Media
Educational Technology
Learning Design and Technology (LDT)
Educational Technology:
“A combination of the processes and tools involved in addressing educational needs and problems, with an emphasis on applying the most current tools: computers and their related technologies.”
M. D. Roblyer, 2000

So what's next?
"The worldwide digital communications, Internet, and computer revolutions have led to the emergence of “the Global Mind,” which links the thoughts and feelings of billions of people and connects intelligent machines, robots, ubiquitous sensors, and databases."
Al Gore, The Future.
2010 and beyond ...
Advanced Whiteboard use
Digital video-on-the-go
Social Networking
Online tools and the Cloud
Digital games and Apps
From Apps to Online Learning: Continual growth and ease of informal and formal learning throughout a person’s lifetime

2009: Prezi founded!
2011 and 2012: Increasing availability of
multi-device authoring tools such as
Captivate, Articulate Storyline, Lectora
and GoMoLearning
From a historical perspective, many educators have learned that blind faith in technology will not lead to improvements. It is becoming increasingly recognized that the focus needs to be on the learner's interaction with technology—not the technology itself. In general, this focus on creating classroom technologies that make educators’ lives easier will give them more time to focus on the other aspects of teaching instead of paperwork.

With full integration of technology into curriculum, the ability to learn through ubiquitous databases and collaborative problem-solving will prove to be essential traits needed in the twenty-first century.

Therefore, in my opinion, there is no greater time to learn and be a part of LDT than from 2010 and beyond. We are living in history while watching it change every day. The tools are getting smarter, faster and easier to use. It is inconceivable that anyone would not want the advantages and ease of learning, designing and teaching in the 21st century.
