Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Here is an old joke. Abe meets Pete.
Abe:  I heard that you are planning to become a millionaire, how is it going?
 Pete: well, yesterday I started working on my second million, I didn’t succeed on the first one.

In the spirit of this joke
I proudly present to you: Education 3.0

 

Apparently Edu 2.0 did not work.
But this time it will be different.

Adam Lenaarts's curator insight, April 21, 2:07 PM

 This education 3.0 concept combined with Keegan's levels of Ego Development should help educators and students in their question for glory.

Special thanks to Feed the Teacher (Giselle Santos) for sharing this diagram originally posted by Dr. Jackie Gerstein.  

 

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented.

Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, May 10, 8:18 AM

Google bemoeit zich steeds intensiever met het onderwijs. Nu komen ze met Google Classroom. Dit artikel in THE Journal spreekt zelfs van een gratis elektronische leeromgeving. Die typering lijkt me niet terecht, als je naar de functionaliteit kijkt. Als ik het goed begrijp faciliteert Google vooral de workflow rond het geven, maken, inleveren, becommentariëren en beoordelen van opdrachten. Daarbij is sprake van een koppeling met Google Docs. Als je uitgaat van een digitale leer- en werkomgeving op basis van een portaalomgeving, dan kan deze toepassing daar een zinvol onderdeel van zijn. We moeten ons daarbij wel realiseren dat we a) nog afhankelijker worden van Google, b) er nog steeds issues zijn rond eigenaarschap van data, privacy en veiligheid, en c) Google een historie heeft als het gaat om het lanceren maar ook weer om zeep helpen van applicaties (denk aan Google Reader of Google Waves). En waarom kiezen bedrijven als Google vaak voor traditionele namen voor hun producten (denk ook aan het schoolbord).

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it
Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis.
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Not bad, but I have two major reservations.

 

1) These are three approaches - or in the worst case three competing educational ideologies - not three theories (there is very little that is scientific about constructivism; behavoirism has not been taken serious as a theory since 1960).

 

2) <<Now that you are able to distinguish three basic instructional design theories, how do you decide which one to use?>>

There is no need to choose, you can combine elements of these three approaches. That is exactly what experienced teachers do (and in different contexts they use different combinations), 

 

If you want to learn to teach, do not study learning "theories".

- find an experienced mentor
- learn all about your subjects and then just start to teach. You will make mistakes, spot and correct them (hint: teaching is about what the students get out of it, not about what the teacher put into it).

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education

I Failed My Online Course—But Learned A Lot About Internet Education | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it

By Selena Larson, 3/8/14

 

MOOCs, or massive open online courses, are quickly becoming technology darlings. Companies like Coursera, Udacity, edX and others provide college-caliber online courses taught by professors from the most prestigious universities. Millions of students interested in pursuing inexpensive post-secondary education can take classes on anything from nutritional health to machine learning—right from the comfort of their own home.

It’s not just about learning new skills. "Graduates" of these classes can receive paid course certificates or accreditation, which is always great to showcase on LinkedIn. Some organizations, like Udacity, have even partnered with universities to create entirely MOOC-based degrees. 

I registered for a five-week course on Coursera, Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory And Practice. I’m interested in global politics and how the definition and scope of terrorism has changed since September 11, 2001, and since the topic was equally intriguing and different from the tech community I’m knee-deep in, I figured this class would provide a good introduction to massive open online courses.

The course was available under Coursera’s “Signature Track” program, so I paid $49 to receive a certificate of completion when I passed the class. It was a waste of $49.

I failed my first MOOC. 

It wasn’t for lack of trying. When I first signed up, I took it very seriously.

Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

[A very intriguing report of MOOC participation.]

. . . I failed my first MOOC. It wasn't for lack of trying. . . .  I took it very seriously. My Coursera professor ... provided great insight, paired it with interesting ... readings. . . . In my entire college career, I never failed a class. I pulled all-nighters to study for tests and write essays, and all the work I put in eventually paid off. ... My Coursera class was a totally different story.

[So far, so good, but then she continues:]

. .  . I'll admit it: I had minimal motivation.

[Here it is getting intriguing.
How exactly - or even by approximation - can one combine taking it seriously and providing great insights with minimal interest?]

 

. . . And reading on:

 

[How can a not-early-aborted college career be reconciled with the structureless essay she submitted? (there is a link to the essay in her article).

How can she be clueless why her peer reviewers did not give her a pass?
What does this tell us about her college - or high school - education?

Is the Coursera class being "a totally different story" proof that Coursera - educationally speaking - sucks; or is an indication that it can - crudely - detect talent? ]

Very Intriguing . . . in what universe this is possible?

Are Universities Going the Way of Record Labels? | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it
The Internet’s power to unbundle content and increase personal choice transformed the music industry—and it’s doing the same thing to higher education.
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Interesting strategy talk
But I'm left with the impression that these strategy experts do not really get the education thing

Hint: the primary process of tertiary education is not the professor who teaches, but the student who studies.
Corollary: students are not consumers, they are the producers.

So the relevant analogy is not listing to recorded music,
but learning to play an instrument for yourself.

Ten reasons we should ditch university lectures

Ten reasons we should ditch university lectures | e-learning and moocs | Scoop.it
Students have just one chance to hear a lecture - and mostly it's just someone reading their notes aloud
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

True, but:

- why watch vids when you can read the book (what is the surplus value of watching the lecturer talk - a performance that supports and enhances the message? showing animations? -). 

- I have watched video captured lectures delivered by top professors, I typically fall asleep after 10 minutes (none were interestingly presented like say a TED talk - and TED-talks take 20 minutes max- ). The only advantage of a vidcap lecture is that you can control the pace of the delivery of the prof.

- MOOCs should be much more than a recorded lecture. At least the presentation should be interrupted/enhanced by a student activity every 5 to 10 minutes, there should be lots of formative tests and there should be a discussion forum where students can interact among themselves. (by the way, you do not need recording studios ,high tech and a big budget to make a MOOC, a webcam + moodle + camtasia + a creative/experimenting lecturer is all you need, that is a 2000 euro budget + the cost of the lecturer).

College costs more and more, even as it gets objectively worse. Only people worse off than indebted grads: adjuncts
Wilko Dijkhuis's insight:

Very nice insight into the political context underlying the US-MOOC discussion.

 

All true, any MOOC "solution" should have answers.

 

The conclusions are clear:

 

STUDENTS:
college does not assure a nice future income, it only assures a crippling debt (i.e. edu is no longer a vehicle for upward social mobility). There are far more effective and efficient ways to have a nice life (for inspiration see the uncollege movement). 

 

ASPIRING PhD STUDENTS:
don't do it !!! (unless you are prepared to live the rest of your life as a monk) Look at it this way: in the 17th century we imported Africans to work at the cotton plantations, currently we are importing Asians to do PhD's. Advice: if you are good with numbers become an investment analyst;  if you love texts, become a lawyer.

 

Be like Elon Musk, drop out on your first day as a PhD student.

Robert Schuwer's curator insight, May 15, 3:19 AM

Extensive report with the result of a study of cost-effectiveness of MOOCs. From the Executive Summary:

 

"Over the past few years, observers of higher education have speculated about dramatic changes that must occur to accommodate more learners at lower costs and to facilitate a shift away from the accumulation of knowledge to the acquisition of a variety of cognitive and non-cognitive skills. All scenarios feature a major role for technology and online learning. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are the most recent candidates being pushed forward to fulfill these ambitious goals. To date, there has been little evidence collected that would allow an assessment of whether MOOCs do indeed provide a cost-effective mechanism for producing desirable educational outcomes at scale. It is not even clear that these are the goals of those institutions offering MOOCs. This report investigates the actual goals of institutions creating MOOCs or integrating them into their programs, and reviews the current evidence regarding whether and how these goals are being achieved, and at what cost."


Worthwhile detail information in the appendices. A.o. the average costs of producing 10 hours of video adds up to $44K.
