learning theory examples

The fundamental purpose of this study is to present concrete examples of instructional design from theory to practice and to evaluate these examples. In the study, “meaningful learning theory” of Ausubel, one of the descriptive theories which enlighten teaching-learning processes, and “information processing theory” of Gagne, one of the prescriptive theories are analyzed. Related to these theories, instructional designs are developed for in-class activities of the social studies course. These examples are compared with the inclass activities of Ausubel and Gagne’s teaching theories.
