Does e-learning require a new theory of learning?

Does e-learning require a new theory of learning? Some initial thoughts

by Richard Andrews/In: Journal for Educational Research Online

 

"I have tried to argue in the present article that the differences between conventional learning and e-learning are suffi ciently signifi cant to warrant the beginnings of a new theory of e-learning itself."

Alexander Cuthbert on Urban Design Methodology

Alexander Cuthbert on Urban Design Methodology | DSqM: The Deptford Square Mile | Scoop.it

"We have also seen that urban design methodologies remain seriously connected to rationalism as the favoured methodology, one where linearity, hierarchy and modeling dominate (Figure 1.8). Hence, the suggestion that urban design should adopt a context derived from the social sciences, particularly spatial political economy, stands in contradiction to the continuing rationalist position in urban design methodologies.

 

How then do we supplant a navel-worshiping rationalist process with contextual and encompassing urban design methodologies that are qualitative, feminist and sustainable? To retain our design skills and meaningfully inform their use, we are therefore forced to look much deeper into the human condition if we wish to develop an urban design knowledge that is courageous, humane and relevant."

— Alexander R. Cuthbert, from "Understanding Cities: Method in Urban Design," 2011.

Anatomy of a Smart City

Anatomy of a Smart City | DSqM: The Deptford Square Mile | Scoop.it

The 19th century was a century of empires, 20th century was a century of nation states and the 21st century will be a century of cities...

This outstanding infographic (courtesy of postscapes.com) begins with some information about our current state of urbanization.

Did you know that 1.3 million people are moving to cities each week?! It then explains the need for smart cities and delves into what is required to establish these intelligent connected environments, how the smart city may take various forms in the developing worlds and what specific technologies are necessary to achieve such grand goals in practice.

Empathy to change the world

Empathy to change the world | DSqM: The Deptford Square Mile | Scoop.it
Empathy can be facilitated in numerous ways. Parents can teach empathy at a young age by always posing the question or mindset of “how do you think that makes them feel?” When they take a toy from their friend, this tactic helps kids to think critically about their actions and the repercussions it has on others.

 

During the teenage years, teachers and youth-leaders can help facilitate understanding through well-integrated service learning (click to learn more), a learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. This type of teaching, when student-led, can have reverberating effects in the lives of teens not only at the moment, but years down the road.

c4cfc77e-3fee-4e5a-97d4-d9b44c4762aa's comment, November 26, 2011 8:17 PM
Great processes, but could I suggest a slight re-phrasing of the question: rather than asking a child to reflect on how something 'makes' someone feel, perhaps just encourage them to consider how they imagine that person might feel, or how the child herself might feel if it happened to her. As well as learning empathy, we all need to learn to take responsibility for our own feelings, and I worry that the language of 'makes me feel' discourages that equally vital capacity. What someone else does may trigger a reaction in me, but that person doesn't 'make me feel' anything: my feeling is a product of how I interpret what has happened as well as what has happened. As the Talmud says, 'We see the world not as it is but as we are.'
