    ILXD Dimensions – Interactions

    ILXD Dimensions – Interactions

    Martin Bloomfield joins us again for yet another fascinating foray into neurodiversity and learning design. We discuss the differences between learning ‘input’ and what ‘output’ is expected from learners, why it’s so important to identify neurodivergence early in a learner’s life, and who’s responsible for ensuring learning is more inclusive. Martin also introduces us to a new acronym – PERDISOMOLO – and invites us to imagine we were wombats! (Stick with it – he’s making a very important point!) This episode is the last in our Season 2 mini-series focusing on inclusive learning design (ILXD).

    S02 EP03: ILXD Dimensions – The Environment

    How can a learner's environment – physical or digital – affect the inclusivity of learning design (ILXD)? Special guest Runna Badwan talks to us about the need to adapt techniques and approaches for learners in different contexts, the risk of making assumptions about learners' knowledge of digital technologies and how teachers and learners can thrive even in particularly challenging environments.

    S02 EP02: ILXD Dimensions – The Learner

    In this episode, we explore one very important factor in inclusive learning design (ILXD) – the learners themselves.
    Special guest Martin Bloomfield talks to us about the unspoken norms and assumptions that influence how we conceptualize learning, why assessment fails to capture what all learners can really do, and how someone's early experiences of school can affect their sense of self-efficacy and motivation to learn throughout their life.

    EP. 14 - Learning through text messages

    In this episode we have a scintillating conversation with Rachel Nemeth, CEO of New York-based startup Opus. Opus is a digital platform that delivers text message courses to deskless workers, and LearnJam has been working with them recently to develop the learning design and content for some of those courses.
    We talked about where the inspiration for Opus came from, what exactly it is and how it works. We also hear Rachel's take on what makes for effective SMS-based learning and why she thinks it's so valuable and important for deskless or frontline workers.

An informative chat about topics rarely covered

Good to hear this subject more widely discussed. Would like to hear about how teachers can apply learning design methods in the classroom in the future.
