I agree about collaboration, but have already voiced concerns about collusion and cheating which I regard as cheating and as disadvantaging those who are learning subject matter as well as potentially causing others problems if a person is thereby employed in a role for which they are incapable

A Nice Graphic on The Evolution of Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Nice Graphic on The Evolution of Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Distance learning | Scoop.it

"Storytelling has been around since the start of Mankind. Storytelling was the basic communicational strategy through which culture, traditions, mores, ways of life and early literature was transmitted from one generation to the other. With the advent of internet and web technologies, storytelling has got some new and wider dimensions. The journey of storytelling from its early beginnings to its actual state is the subject of this wonderful graphic below. It documents the major periods and forms  of storytelling that was pervasive during each era. It is really amazing to take a pause and take a look back into history to see how storytelling has evolved to be what it is now. Enjoy"

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions | Distance learning | Scoop.it

As higher education has embraced online education as a way to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and enhance access to students it is important to gain an understanding of the perceptions of instructors moving into online teaching. This study found a change in the beliefs and teaching presence of the instructors from their initial resistance to online teaching to an approach which is mindful of the student experience and promotes a dialogical approach to online learning.

There are more benefits from implementing a blended learning approach than keeping the traditional teaching style; however, before incorporating online teaching into our classrooms, there are several factors teachers should take into account. Here is an interesting perspective offered by the University of Southern Queensland you might consider for the pedagogical transition.

WPI Teaching with Technology Collaboratory - Improving Your Teaching Presence in Distance Learning Courses

WPI Teaching with Technology Collaboratory - Improving Your Teaching Presence in Distance Learning Courses | Distance learning | Scoop.it

Teaching presence is a significant component of the community of inquiry model developed by Garrison, Anderson and Archer in 2000. The components of this model are cognitive presence, social presence and teaching presence. Cognitive presence encompasses the course content and its contribution to critical thinking skills. Social presence is the social environment created in an online teaching course. Teaching presence includes the organization of course content, activities, and interaction along with the added expertise of the instructor (Anderson, Elloumi, 274). Teaching presence is defined in the model as "the design, facilitation, and direction of cognitive and social processes for the purpose of realizing personally meaningful and educationally worthwhile learning outcomes" (Anderson, Rourke, Garrison, Archer). Although the instructor is not physically present in a distance learning course, implementing the following techniques can improve the sense of presence for your students.

I need to read more about the theory base for community of inquiry ... the distinction of types of presence seems a useful framework for reflecting on our roles and effectiveness.

Self-Directed Learning: The Core of Successful MOOC Participation

Self-Directed Learning: The Core of Successful MOOC Participation | Distance learning | Scoop.it
As MOOCs continue to develop, we must identify challenges learners face as MOOC participants, specifically for learners accustomed to the face-to-face classroom—many of them disengage in MOOCs as the course progresses because online education has shifted the learner’s role into unfamiliar territory: online students are now more accountable for their own learning, time management, and motivation to complete coursework.

Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Distance learning | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

Though not critical to my project. I thought important that I know how the schooling has changed and how it has been enforced through the internet. 

Damon Ing's curator insight, July 3, 12:16 AM
This article discusses in detail the alternatives to the traditional classroom. It offers a different variety of ideas that could be used to enhance the traditional distance education model. It is interesting to see that flexibility is one of the strongest benefits to distance learning and has become very popular in other countries. Read on to see the authors opinion on some very important topics.
