Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners.

L'usage des MOOCs requiert des compétences très pointues, en termes d'autonomie notamment, dans le chef des apprenants. Il ne faut pas voir les MOOCs comme un ennemi mais plutôt voir en quoi ils peuvent être utiles à notre pratique enseignante et dans quelle(s) modalité(s) nous pouvons les y intégrer.
