The Journey to Lifelong Learning Begins with Professional Development | ASCD Inservice - 0 views

  •  
    "PD, like any type of learning, works best for educators when it is connected, both to what the educators personally find intriguing and what they are professionally immersed in. That means that sticky PD can't be "new day, new topic." Learners have to truly dig in (and want to dig in) in order for the learning to be meaningful. That is why PD has to be cyclical; if we want to help educators become lifelong learners, we have to provide learning opportunities that aren't meant to end."

FOAM is independent of platform or media - it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, Google hangouts, online videos, text documents, photographs, facebook groups, and a whole lot more."

Technology and jobs: Coming to an office near you - 0 views

    "The definition of "a state education" may also change. Far more money should be spent on pre-schooling, since the cognitive abilities and social skills that children learn in their first few years define much of their future potential. And adults will need continuous education. State education may well involve a year of study to be taken later in life, perhaps in stages."

Advancing a vision of lifelong learning in 2030 - 0 views

  •  
    In the OER4Adults survey, we identified over 170 OER Initiatives across Europe and other countries (mainly the US). Many of these initiatives - those who provide OER for adult and lifelong learning - are from the higher education, vocational and school sectors. These initiatives assume that the primary users of OER are teachers and registered students, but the might not necessarily think about 'nonformal' learners.

MOOCs and exercise bikes - more in common than you'd think - 0 views

  •  
    "If you have an exercise bike in the back room, you could be the small selection of people that use it everyday to get fit. But then again, you could be one of many more who bought it in the hope of regular practice but were unable to make it part of your routine. The MOOC or Massive Open Online Course, which has come to prominence this year, often has much the same effect. Students may enrol in the online free courses from prestigious universities in their tens of thousands, but overwhelmingly they bomb out with attrition rates up to 80-90%."

New Rules - 0 views

  •  
    "The truth is, if you want a decent job that will lead to a decent life today you have to work harder, regularly reinvent yourself, obtain at least some form of postsecondary education, make sure that you're engaged in lifelong learning and play by the rules. That's not a bumper sticker, but we terribly mislead people by saying otherwise."

    "Static knowledge was useful when the pace of change in the world was slower than it is now. The focus now is on having the ability for lifelong learning and contributing. The internet enables this through the sharing of vast amounts of information and the opportunities for collaboration across the classroom and across the world!"
