Excellent challenging manifesto from Stephen Downes - todays online learning models are yesterdays with new names

NLafferty's curator insight, July 11, 2:54 AM
Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.
Annalisa Manca's curator insight, July 11, 10:21 AM

Interesting differentiation between personal and personalised learning

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 10, 4:44 PM

Once again SHIFT Learning has published an article that focuses on eLearning, but is applicable to face2face learning. The five mantras that are discussed work in either location. What are they? (All are quoted below):

* Think visually.

* We don't remember data, we remember stories.

* Design smarter, not harder.

* Visual clutter is the evidence of a failed search for clarity.

* Leave your learners feeling inspired.

Additional detail is provided in the post and an additional resource is shared in three of the five areas listed above.
