Learning is the capability of acquiring knowledge. The question becomes how knowledge is acquired. Cognitivism, Constructivism and Behaviorism are the three major theories that have attempted to address this question. Cognitivism stress learning is influenced from thinking, memory and problem solving; Constructivism feel learning is based on the connection between representation and prior knowledge; while Behaviorism suggest learning is obtained through external factors using positive or negative reinforcement. To imply one theory as a representation of learning puts learning into a square frame. If this were true a simple teaching style would accommodate all learners. However, educators will confirm most students have a unique way of obtaining knowledge. This explains why transferring training material to a slide show does not work, or why adding pictures to employee manual proves to be useless or why using an avatar video is just as ineffective. Intelligence theorist, Howard Gardner, identified different types of learning styles. However just as learning does not take place in a vacuum neither does learning styles. A learner may have a dominant style of learning but this does not mean their knowledge can only be acquired one way. Visual learning may prefer visual aids but the same learner can be just as successful with auditory learning. This explains why instructional designers understand how to create learning material using theories with content. An instructional designer’s storyboard address cognitive aspects, how and what parts of the material needs to be memorized; constructivism, how to use prior knowledge through the representation of the material; and behaviorism, how can the content motivate the learning. These skills are not as simple as adding assessments or visual aids. The end result must have aspects that require thinking, use of the learner’s prior knowledge (especially with adult learners), and provide immediate feedback. This skill require instructional designer to understand the concept of learning and they must realize all learning theories are correct.
