The death of the digital native: four provocations from Digifest speaker, Donna Lanclos | Jisc

The death of the digital native: four provocations from Digifest speaker, Donna Lanclos | Jisc | All things Learning | Scoop.it
In these four provocations, anthropologist Donna Lanclos argues that the notion of the "digital native" is bogus and disempowering, that pandering to student expectations can backfire, universities should be open by default, and our attitude to educational technology needs a rethink.

This may be a bit behind the times. I think many of us got over that whole digital native thing a long time ago. Still an interesting arguement though.

Creating engagement through interactive infographics

Creating engagement through interactive infographics | All things Learning | Scoop.it

I’ve been a long term advocate of the use of infographics in education and especially enjoy thinking of ways that students can be encouraged to engage with and question the content as well as create their own graphics, so when I rediscovered Visme.co I was really delighted to find the tool that I once thought was a PowerPoint substitute for creating online presentations had turned into an awesome interactive infographic creator.

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry | All things Learning | Scoop.it
On the whole, modern eLearning systems should provide an opportunity to share both knowledge and experience. In addition, online courses should be individualized, but still offer a way to give and receive feedback. There should also be a track record of everybody’s progress and achievements. All these facilities make modern eLearning highly effective, and demonstrate the advantages of a virtual classroom over a traditional one.
