Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers

Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.

ELI Course: Looking for the Pedagogy in Blended Course Design | EDUCAUSE.edu | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

The proliferation of blended/hybrid initiatives and resources is heartening and furthering a delivery model that is reaching maturity. However, there is still much to be examined about what organizations promote as models for designed blended courses and how these models are enacted by practitioners. Research in this area has historically focused on learner traits, grades, faculty/learner levels of satisfaction, and/or levels of learner engagement (see Dzuiban, Hartman, and Moskal 2004 and Nagel 2009). But blended learning is more than a simple "flip" of the classroom because it requires careful planning and cautious implementation and may even be transformative for both learner and instructor.

This session will present the findings from a series of studies examining blended best practices, pedagogical practices, and learner preparedness. There is indication that while alignment through an integration of online and face-to-face components is a priority, in actuality courses are location-driven and typically based on pedagogical templates. Most reports advocate a learner-centered approach, yet the variation in approaches indicates that learners must be prepared to adapt to different course designs in ways that acknowledge underlying requirements of the blended format. The presentation topics will include research findings and patterns present and absent across these areas. The session will address mission directly by sharing a range of pedagogical strategies and best practices that are directly aligned with learner success through the axiomatic use of technology to support and facilitate learning.

Teachers, bin your textbooks, says US government official

Teachers, bin your textbooks, says US government official | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
A top US government official has called for schools on both sides of the Atlantic to stop using textbooks altogether within the next five years, contradicting UK ministers who want to increase their use. Richard Culatta, director of educational technology at the US Department of Education, said textbooks were “out of date the second they get printed”, did not engage pupils or allow personalised learning, and encouraged a “linear” form of learning that was not supported by evidence.

LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, June 10, 2:19 AM

" (...) Blended learning is generally and loosely defined as ‘learning that takes place partly aided by the use of online resources’. Under this definition, it seemed obvious to me that the learning that most children experience in the Western world is, whether we approve of it or not, blended, especially if you consider the learning that goes on outside of school. Think of the way children learn new tricks for Minecraft on YouTube, for example. (...) "

Canadian Vocational Association / Association canadienne de la formation professionnelle's curator insight, June 11, 5:28 AM

Learning communities offer a strategy for educational reform that involves all participants -- parents, learners, teachers, community members, intellectuals, and political leaders -- in a continual process of evolving education. By establishing connections both inside and outside of the classrooms, where experts of all ages can be a part of the resources for learning, we can help all students establish life-long patterns for learning, support teachers in a process of continuing growth, and encourage all learners to take an active role in the construction of knowledge.
