Sometimes it's worth reflecting the range of ways in which learning has been considered over time. I don't think it's going to become any less complex as we explore both new paradigms and interactions between old ones.

MOOCs and Open Education: Implications for Higher Education « publications | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This report sets out to help decision makers in higher education institutions gain a better understanding of the phenomenon of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and trends towards greater openness in higher education and to think about the implications for their institutions.


The phenomena of MOOCs are described, placing them in the wider context of open education, online learning and the changes that are currently taking place in higher education at a time of globalisation of education and constrained budgets.


The report is written from a UK higher education perspective, but is largely informed by the developments in MOOCs from the USA and Canada.

Blended MOOCs: The Best of Both Worlds? -- Campus Technology

Blended MOOCs: The Best of Both Worlds? -- Campus Technology | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Combining in-class instruction with high-quality MOOCs may resolve some of the hurdles facing stand-alone MOOCs, but questions about cost and the impact on faculty remain unanswered.


One way to address both of these issues may be blended MOOCs. Essentially, they utilize the flipped classroom model with some wrinkles: Outside class time, students take a MOOC imported from off campus--elite institutions dominate the market right now--but then meet in class with local faculty for discussions, problem-solving, group projects, and lab work. Not only does this approach give students more faculty and peer support, but it also solves some of the assessment and certification issues facing stand-alone MOOCs (see "Testing Times".)

Despite the prodigious effort Nicole Woodhouse has thrown into college — including semesters of 18 credit hours, extensive volunteering, and substitute-teacher work — she knows she may still not be able to secure a job when she graduates. When Woodhouse observes fellow students stuffing extra majors, internships and extracurricular activities into already-packed schedules, she sees how competitive the hunt for post-college work has become.

A small but growing number of faculty at major universities are experimenting with the inverted or flipped classroom. It’s an instructional model popularized by, among other influences, a Ted Talk by Khan Academy founder Salman Khan, which has received more than 2.5 million views.


Institutions as varied as Duke University’s School of Medicine, Boston University’s College of Engineering, and the University of Washington School of Business have joined Clemson, Michigan State, the University of Texas, and many others in experimenting with changing from in-class lectures to video lectures and using class time to explore the challenging and more difficult aspects of course content.

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 12:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Announcing Flip Your Classroom Day: A Global Initiative

September 6, 2013, the Flipped Learning Network™ hosts Flip Your Classroom Day. 

On 9-6-2013 educators across the globe will take a pledge to flip one lesson to experience Flipped Learning, with the expectation this leads to further flipped units or an entire course. Based on a survey conducted by the Speak Up National Research Project (Fall, 2012), we estimate that only 3% of teachers in the U.S. know about or "do" flipped learning. Yet  27% of principals indicated their teachers wanted to try it this year! So thank you for joining the growing ranks of educators who are moving from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered learning environment.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Most people get it. Classes, courses and curricula – structured learning events – don’t provide all the tools in the toolkit. They’re bit-players in a much larger world of organisational learning and performance.

 

The part that formal, directed learning plays in overall organisational capability may be important at times, but organisations aspiring towards Peter Senge’s ‘learning organization’ – in other words, creating a culture of continuous learning - need to reach beyond simply improving structured training.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"This is where the 70:20:10 framework helps. We can think of three aspects of building capability...a holistic strategic model that helps build a culture of continuous learning." Interesting article of learning approach and concepts.
