The Problem With Evidence-Based Policies by Ricardo Hausmann - Project Syndicate - 0 views

  •  
    "Many organizations, from government agencies to philanthropic institutions and aid organizations, now require that programs and policies be "evidence-based." It makes sense to demand that policies be based on evidence and that such evidence be as good as possible, within reasonable time and budgetary limits. But the way this approach is being implemented may be doing a lot of harm, impairing our ability to learn and improve on what we do. "

Institutional digital capability and digital fairy dust | Jisc digital capability codes... - 0 views

  •  
    "". .. from your perspective what are the institutional enablers and blockers when it comes to growing the digital capability of an organisation?" asked James Clay in a recent post on this blog. I rather flippantly posted a comment to James's post saying "Culture is a big issue, but I think over reliance (or expectations) that technology alone will somehow wave some magical digital fairy dust and everyone and ergo the institution will be "digital" and digitally literate." This post is my attempt to elaborate that comment."

    "The use of technology to maximise the student learning experience is a vibrant area of interest across all tiers of global education. Technology enhanced learning (TEL) is often used as a synonym for e-learning but can also be used to refer to technology enhanced classrooms and learning with technology, rather than just through technology."

The VLE isn't the problem, the sediment is | The Ed Techie - 0 views

  •  
    "At the ALT C conference I went to a few sessions where VLE discussion came up, most notably Lawrie Phipps and Donna Lanclos's session "Are learning technologies fit for purpose?". They asked us to reflect on the main question in groups and nearly all of the discussions came back to complaints about the VLE. Lawrie picked on me to give the first response and I mentioned that the problem was not so much the technology but the "institutional sediment" that builds up around it. "

TURNITIN? TURNITOFF: The Deskilling of Information Literacy | BRABAZON | Turkish Online... - 0 views

  •  
    Plagiarism is a folk devil into which is poured
    many of the challenges, problems and difficulties confronting higher education . This article investigates how software-
    Turnitin in particular - is 'solving' a particular ' crisis' in universities . However I investigate how alternative strategies for the development of information literacy offer concrete,
    productive and imaginative trajectories for university staff and students.

The Next Generation Digital Learning Environment: A Report on Research - eli3035.pdf - 0 views

  •  
    "In partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, EDUCAUSE explored the gaps between current learning management tools and a digital learning environment that could meet the changing needs of higher education . Consultations with more than 70 community thought leaders brought into relief the contours of a next generation digital learning environment (NGDLE). Its principal functional domains are interoperability;
    personalization; analytics ,advising, and learning assessment; collaboration; and accessibility and universal design. Since no single application can deliver in all those domains, we recommend a "
    Lego" approach to realizing the NGDLE, where NGDLE-
    conforming components are built that allow individuals and
    institutions the opportunity to construct learning environments tailored to their requirements and goals"
