    Oh so true blue tail. Isn't this stuff designed to baffle the poor student ( teacher and young child).

    This is an industry created to fill inset days and confuse intelligent people.

    Love to all

    Recently stumbled on this post and I've read most of the commentaries but if you are still confused, consider your learning objectives using phrases such as 'to learn', 'to know,' ' to understand,' or 'to explore' or to investigate.'
    Learning outcomes are now what your students can do as a result of the above learning objectives and these can be differentiated for them depending on their ability.
    An example of such outcomes could be to define stem cells and evaluate the use of adult and embryonic stem cells. This could further be differentiated using descibe and explain statements also.
    So in summary, learning objective for today is to learn what stem cells are.
    Learning outcome from this is to define stem cells, describe the role of stem cells, compare and explain the advantages and the disadvantages of adult and embryonic stem cells.
