The Elusive ROI for Learning Through Technology by Jack Phillips & Patti Phillips : Learning Solutions Magazine

The Elusive ROI for Learning Through Technology by Jack  Phillips & Patti  Phillips : Learning Solutions Magazine | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Few would dispute the convenience, low cost, and high efficiency of learning through technology. Whether eLearning, blended-learning, or mobile learning, it is usually just in time, just enough, and just for the user, which is the ideal form of customization and convenience for participants. At the same time, for larger audiences, eLearning represents a tremendous cost savings.


Executives have learned to love eLearning for its convenience, its timeliness, and its low cost. Learning through technology makes it possible for large numbers of people to learn at the same time without leaving the workplace. What executive would not love this? The problem is that the results are not always there.


Some professionals measure the ROI for eLearning on the basis of cost savings alone, comparing eLearning to the facilitator-led counterpart. When large numbers of participants are involved, this cost savings is very dramatic. This is acceptable only if the outcome would be the same from learning through technology when compared to the facilitator-led alternative. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case.

The Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) project analyses how young people learn. It studies which conditions and dynamics allow them to be able to learn better. By identifying concrete cases of innovative learning environments from all over the world, ILE aims to inform practice, leadership and reform through generating analysis of innovative and inspiring configurations of learning for children and young people.

The distinctive contribution of the ILE project is to analyse, with numerous international examples, innovative ways of organising learning at the micro level (learning environment) and how this connects to the meso level (networks and communities of practice) and strategies to implement learning change at the macro, system level.  Read more about the ILE project here.


 The goals of this project are to serve the educational reform agenda by:

  • Analysing and synthesising current international research findings on learning, teaching and learning environments.
  • Identifying and analysing examples of innovative learning environments from all over the world.
  • Engaging with the community of policy reformers, innovators and learning scientists to discuss how to make better use of these findings to make OECD education systems learning driven.

The world is one big dataset. Now, how to photograph it ...

We're all familiar with satellite imagery, but what we might not know is that much of it is out of date. That's because satellites are big and expensive, so there aren't that many of them up in space. As he explains in this fascinating talk, Dan Berkenstock and his team came up with a different solution, designing a cheap, lightweight satellite with a radically new approach to photographing what's going on on Earth.

Blended Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.


Nik Peachey's insight:

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
  • Reflection. We should ask ourselves about the information we receive.
  • Analysis. By using our own knowledge and other data we evaluate information and arguments that reinforce or question ideas.
  • Acquisition of information. By contrasting and collecting data from other sources we can, in many cases, confirm or reject the information we have analyzed.
  • Creativity. This is stimulated by the need to associate ideas and knowledge with the purpose of building up our arguments.
  • Structuring arguments. Learning to build up cases on a solid foundation in order to support the criteria we have constructed.
  • Decision making. Learning to take decisions based on our own criteria.
  • Commitment to our own opinions and arguments.
  • Debate. The ability to explain and defend our ultimate criteria and contrast it with other criteria that may be as valid as our own.
