marketing research Oz styleClassic Education: A Learners’ View (ALV) of Choices during Teaching and Learning describes social processes people use while learning. People with a classic education demonstrate an enduring blend of how and what the most accomplished people do while learning.

This site introduces a learners’ view (ALV) of learning. From this view, learning occurs by connecting two dots with a line. People learn when instruction  of a lesson matches choices learners will likely make; scientists have described and reported these matches.

From a learners’ view: Learning occurs in one step from two choices in three stages with four levels to answer one or more of five generic questions.

Learners repeatedly use what scientists call principles of learning to solve problems through trial-and-errors. These principles describe a sample of essential patterns of learning.

Experimental empirical behavioral and social scientists began reporting using various names for choices of learners over a century ago. Poets, other scribes, and bards over the ages have used and described this view with other words.

Students of teachers who use ALV consistently learn lessons taught. Other social actions by instructors, however artful or entertaining, consist of unnamed experiments with procedures less likely to result in observable dramatic increases in academic performance by all learners. Their experiments are to learning during teaching as winning a lottery is to a ticket holder in that lottery: They rely on chance more than planning.

Other material provides background and elaboration of social processes people use during teaching and learning.     Read More>
