This proposal presents our views on the potential of 21st century DoD education programs. In contrast to the standard linear or tree-like educational system of sequential lectures or chapters, we propose the Curated Heuristic Using a Network of Knowledge for Continuum of Learning (CHUNK Learning) concept, a real-time and adaptive teaching-learning modular method for enhanced and personalized education.
Much like a computer game approach, the learner maintains an on-line learning profile which guides the learner through a Network of Knowledge composed of lesson materials joined together by common attributes (i.e., tagged with competency or skill levels). Our vision includes a mix of different delivery methods, to include demos, videos, interactive applications, TED talks, webinars, programming languages (personalized to the skill of the learner), and data manipulations, all delivered through a combination of online and face to face experiences. We envision the instructor as the facilitator, presenting the state of the art of the subject, together with how it can be used, while guiding the learners through a web of the aforementioned demos and videos.
