Learning Theories Presentation

I need to develop a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that provides an overview of two assigned theories.
k. Each theory will include a discussion of the following:
1) Overview
2) Scope/application
3) Major tenets/principles
4) Example (of application)
5) References

The presentation includes speaker notes to expand on the bulleted slide contents. All references will be on one slide following the individual's content presentation. Citations must be included in the speaker notes. A title slide including the name of each team member and the title of the presentation. Style/Format: Professional and graduate-level, APA, grammar, spelling, etc.

I need resources & suggestions. Thank you.

ASSIGNMENT

1. I need to develop a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that provides an overview of two assigned theories. Each theory will include a discussion of the following:

1) Overview
2) Scope/application
3) Major tenets/principles
4) Example (of application)
5) References

The presentation includes speaker notes to expand on the bulleted slide contents. All references will be on one slide following the individual's content presentation. Citations must be included in the speaker notes, a title slide including the name of each team member and the title of the presentation. Style/Format: Professional and graduate-level, APA, grammar, spelling, etc.

I need resources & suggestions. Thanks.

RESPONSE:

The assignment instructions provide excellent direction. It tells you to include the five areas for two theories (overview, scope, etc.). I also provided an illustrative example of constructivism below (using Piaget's theory of Constructivism) that uses the above heading (e.g., overview, scope/application etc.). The references are to be listed on the last slide in APA format. The title slide will include your name and your team member's name as illustrated in the example below.

Example: Title Slide:

Learning Theories: Behaviorism and Constructivism

Yourname (names centered)
Team member1's name
Team member 2, name
Team member 3, name

Now for the resources that you have asked for to get you started. I have indeed located a wealth of resources to get you started.

Have you given some thought to the two theories that you want to use? Learning theories tend to fall into one of several perspectives or paradigms, including behaviorism, cognitivism, constructivism, and others. The following links provide this information on three learning theories, which you can choose from (also see the attached resource for an excellent overview of each theory: Learning Theory Paradigms.doc), which you can use for both the PowerPoint and the notes.

As mentioned above, I also provided an illustrate example of constructivism (Piaget), using the above heading (e.g., overview, scope/application etc.). The suggested websites taken together provide enough information for you to complete an overview, scope/application and major tenets/principles of two theories, together with the notes. A good way to do this is to use the information from the websites, make points for your PowerPoint, and then go back and use this information for the notes (putting it into point form too, for organization and easy following). Then, as directed in the assignment instructions, reference the ...

Solution Summary

This provides resources and suggestions for a presentation on two learning theories. To use as exemplars, it also provides links to Powerpoint presentations on learning theories and extra resources on learning theories for further research.
