Internet-era ways of working - Public Digital - 0 views

  •  
    "Our definition of digital says: "Applying the culture, processes, business models & technologies of the internet-era to respond to people's raised expectations." Once they've heard that, the next thing people always ask us is: "OK. But how? How do I make that happen in my organisation?" Good question. We've spent a lot of time thinking about the answer to that. Between us, we've collectively made a lot of mistakes over the last 20+ years of digital delivery, and learned from every one of them. We think the answer looks something like this: a todo list for putting internet-era ways of working into action"

    In searching for Connected Learning case studies I discovered that Curtin University has Distributed Learning facilities set up on campus, within Australia and at International campus so that classes of students can connect to collaborate together focusing on unit content to enhance their learning. This link has a video about the Curtin Business School working with students from Miri-Sarawak in Malaysia leading to a much richer and connected learning experience. I work at Curtin and I had no idea this was something the University was doing!!

Connected Learning in an Australian Technology Program: A Case Study Journal Article | ... - 0 views

  •  
    The Connected Classrooms Program had a four-year timeframe (2007-11) and was aimed at schools by providing enhanced technologies and applications for teaching and learning. This approach is supported by the broader Australian education policy context that seeks to improve infrastructure for information and communication technologies (ICT) in schools, as well as recognise that today's students like to learn digitally. Led by NSWDET this initiative is built on prior evidence from education research in schools, regional ICT strategies and local trials in technology.
