Revelation Theory of Learning

Revelation Theory of Learning (RTL) is a teaching and learning theory for PK through 20. It was authored by John V. Connor in 2003. It is being used in schools scattered throughout North America; however, it is not extensively used yet. The theory combines the psychology of learning with rapid technology integration that results in the ideal classroom (learning) environment (ICE). Revelation is an acronym (mneumonic) for the 7 attributes of the theory. R = repetition optimized; EV = Effective Visuals/video; EL = Effective Language; A = Association; TI = Technology that is Interactive and rapid; O = Observation of learners that is constant; N = Nonbiased presentation of objectives. It meets the criteria to be categorized as a Universal Design for Learning by CAST.

I do think it is beneficial for educators to integrate technology into their lessons and philosophy of teaching. In some ways, people learn as they used to. However education is very different, or should be very different. The world looks nothing like it did a century ago. Why do schools behave so similarly?

I think sometimes that technology is going to be the downfall of mankind. It seems as though we become more and more dependent on it. There are fewer and sewer jobs each year that don't require a person to be able to use computer skills.

How did people learn before technology was invented? Were people not trained as lawyers, doctors, engineers, etc? I look at theories and initially I am skeptical unless it can be proven through scientific studies that say the theory works. But an interesting point is that there are some of the best schools in the world that don't even have any type ofr computer in the classroom, yet those students excel and go to the best colleges in the world.
