Choices of Teachers

A Learners’ View (ALV) Is Of Choices On The Shortest And Fastest Path To Learning, The Oxygen Of Social Life.


A learners’ view (ALV) gives you ways for learners to learn more. ALV is to learning as Do-Re-Mi (pronounced doe-ray-me) is to music; both are names for the infrastructure of their social activities.

This site introduces basics for identifying and applying ALV intentionally. You’ll discover it provides you a lot of flexibility. For example, whenever learning occurs in your current lessons, it’s because you matched something learners do while learning.

That means, when you want someone to learning something, use ALV to match your choices in a lesson with choices learners will probably make to learn that lesson. This view of teaching and learning represents a change for most educators.

ALV can help you identify those matches. Then you can choose whether to continue or increase the number of matches (increase the amount of learning), or change matches, so learning fits more closely the purposes of those lessons.

On the plus side, application of ALV through lessons increases the likelihood that students will learn from those lessons. On the downside, application of ALV demands an adjustment in lesson planning, instruction, and assessment of learning.
