Learners Distinguish How to from What They Learn

(THIS PAGE IS UNDERGOING A LIVE, MAJOR EDIT. THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.)

A Learners’ View (ALV) is the Straightest and Fastest Path with the Least Number of Steps to Learning, the Oxygen Of Social Life.


20 Second Lessons


A 20 second lesson designates a limited amount of time for instructing a lesson that leaners learn. It consumes the least number of seconds observed for a teacher consistently to instruct successful lessons.

This consistency indicates the plausibility of packaging lessons for 20 second, more or less, instruction. Mr. Lother did in math classes decades ago with 50 plus farm kids in each class, most of whom went on to colleges, a few to careers that touched your life.

Twenty Second lessons are still a useful device for organizing lessons into clusters of related parts. Commercial advertisers, humorists, film makers, software developers, and athletes condense their messages into even shorter modules.

Each 20 second lesson in education consists of one way to solve one problem. Each lesson has its own beginning, middle, and end as a measurable outcome. Application of ALV makes 20 second lessons routinely possible for teachers today.

Implicitly, instruction over any length of time consists of one or more 20 second lessons, also called lesson modules. When a teacher highlights something in a Power Point slide, the highlighted part is a 20 second lesson. It is a solved problem used to help solve another problem the instructor is addressing.

Direct Instruction and Try Another Way are two examples of programs that use 20 second lessons and strings of 20 second lesson modules (without the names ALV or 20 second lessons). They are among the most tested instruction methods with over one million learners and hundreds of teachers and other human service workers participating in controlled, experimental studies. They set standards for performance increases by learners which few, if any, instruction methods match.
