eLearning Trends That Will Fizzle, Sizzle, or Simmer in 2014

eLearning Trends That Will Fizzle, Sizzle, or Simmer in 2014 | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Sharon Boller


Our industry is notorious for chasing after trends. We all enjoy reading the summaries of the past year – and seeing predictions for the new one. Most folks want to know: which trends are worth pursuing and which ones are going to fizzle? Is gamification going to go the way of Myspace and Foursquare? Will social learning be replaced by “isolation learning” (okay, I made that up)?


At any point in time, there are trends that sizzle, others that simmer, and ones that fizzle out. The really, really good ones become “best practices” over the long haul. So let’s see what’s on the stove right now.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Somethings always cooking in e Learning. Here's a short term forecast article about what's hot (and what's no so hot). 


Of particular interest is the clarification of what's realistic in 'mobile learning'.  Do you want to take a whole course on your phone?  I'd do one on my tablet, but the phone (for me) is about quick references and targeted informational search... (not to mention actually talking to people in real time.)

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

Although we believe that students need to develop the skills necessary to prepare a thoughtful, well-written, inquiry-driven research paper, our students have many other engaging product options. They can acquire subject knowledge and develop transferable information literacy and technology skills through a variety of creative activities. The following is a list of some alternative assessments for your class. For any research product or response to literature, consider how we might offer video, digital storytelling and publishing, art, drama, or presentation as an option for students to creatively communicate/share/publish/broadcast the knowledge they have gained.

Video animations made easy?  Sounds very interesting.  I know I have no ability to create animations from scratch. This tool might just be enough to get me going.
