This is good but could use a bit more joy in the narration:

This is my lifelong personal favorite.  How many of the First Principles of Instruction do they use?

One Response to “Some Active Learning Videos”

  1. Laurie says:

    Since nobody else commented, I will give it a shot myself.

    1. Learning is promoted when learners are engaged in solving real-world problems.
    I think Moe actually wants to avoid any real-world problems.

    2. Learning is promoted when existing knowledge is activated as a foundation for new knowledge.
    Pretty sure the students already knew the alphabet. The song seems like a basic intro to Phonics.

    3. Learning is promoted when new knowledge is demonstrated to the learner.
    They definitely got this part right. Moe uses the pointer and the board to demonstrate, then adds the song – great use of mnemonic.

    4. Learning is promoted when new knowledge is applied by the learner.
    After their demo, the Stooges ask the students to demonstrate.

    5. Learning is promoted when new knowledge is integrated into the learner’s world.
    The students take off and improvise new twists to the song.

    Not very authentic learning but certainly engaging!
