What You May Not Know About Blended Learning | eLearning Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "Blended Learning" is often used to define learning solutions that include parts of the content, or experiences, being delivered in different ways. Each may use different instructional methods more appropriate to each lesson or module of content. Whilst everyone seems to have their own view of what a blended solution looks like, most will agree that 21st century "courses" will contain lessons/modules that vary in their media selection, and mode of delivery." "Blended learning is not new. Long before the internet, and computer-based training, innovative teachers and designers of instruction have blended a variety of media, and methods, to present learners with a blended learning experience. However, today's use of the term speaks more to our history of migrating completely from the classroom to CBT, and learning from that experience. And finding a place where we all realize there will always be a place for ILT, and CBT, and all micro forms of learning in-between."

Universities told to adapt or die - 3 views

  • ''Fixing the technology's important, but so is changing the pedagogy,'' Mr Tanner said. ''While we've made great progress in e-learning, there's been an awful lot about 'e' and not much about 'learning'.''
  •  
    UNIVERSITIES that fail to embrace new technology will lose students and die, former federal finance minister Lindsay Tanner has warned. Mr Tanner, now a vice-chancellor's fellow at Victoria University, told a Melbourne audience last night that while Australian universities were using the internet to deliver study materials, they were not yet fully exploiting the potential technology offered for new ways of learning.

Please Stop Thinking About Tomorrow : Stager-to-Go - 4 views

  • Let’s stop talking about the future and start doing something now! Generations of children have missed-out on rewarding educational experiences while we worry about how corporate meetings will be conducted in 2019.
  • Suggestions for school improvement: smaller classes a curriculum related to real life better teacher education teachers make room in the curriculum for the folk-tales of children’s ancestors parents encouraged to visit the school more intimate contact with people outside of school and cooperating with the entire neighborhood

    "Even if the technological progress gap between 2000 and 2010 was enormous, there is almost zero evidence that it has made an impact on education. Yeah, I know. "Blogging changed your life. Your PLN saved you from social isolation…" Social media just doesn't feel that new to me and I challenge you to argue that it has had more than an infinitesimal impact on classroom practice."

    Nice blog article that reflects on the past decade, without getting lost in the next.

Ewan McIntosh: iPad Learning for All the Wrong Reasons - 5 views

  •  
    "The iPad itself is a great device -- I love mine and it's changed the nature of computing on our couch. It is the ultimate in personal computing; it is not, as my wife and I have discovered, very good at being a shareable device"
  •  
    Interesting iPad review. Good reason why kids need these tablet computers in the hands, not locked up in school labs or libraries.

Confessions of an Aca/Fan: Why Universities Shouldn't Create "Something like YouTube" (... - 0 views

  • Many universities are trying to figure out how they can build "something like YouTube" to support their educational activities. Most of them end up building things that are very little like YouTube in that they tend to lock down the content and make it hard to move into other spaces and mobilize in other conversations. In a sense, these university based sites are about disciplining the flow of knowledge rather than facilitating it.

    Discussing how universities want to control knowledge rather than letting it flow freely.
