5 Tips for Beating Boring eLearning

5 Tips for Beating Boring eLearning | Education in the Cloud | Scoop.it

The promise of eLearning for many students is the chance to engage in a "classroom" like never before. Every seat is in the front and the dynamic eLearning space has the potential for some of the most engaging curriculum and learning experiences students have ever experienced. So why are so many eLearning environments so boring?

Robert Farrow's curator insight, February 21, 2013 1:27 AM

Interestingly, the claim made here is that universities are starting to make money from MOOC and it's coming from validation.  Are we going to see a 'freemium' model of education becoming prolific?

Personal Learning Environments and the revolution of Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development

Personal Learning Environments and the revolution of Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development | Education in the Cloud | Scoop.it

The Personal Learning Environment is transferring some — or most — of the responsibility of somebody’s learning path from the instructor (back) to the learner. And, in doing so, it also implies regaining the control of one’s own learning path and its design. 

 

There will be an increasing need of instructors as more knowledgeable others (MKO) in order to learn how to learn something. With Personal Learning Environments to cover the ground of one’s Zone of Personal Development, learning how to learn, how to design one’s own learning process may be more relevant than ever and require more help from third parties.

 

My thesis was on Vygotsky's Zone of Personal Development and saw the relationship with Personal Learning Environments. This article makes it clear that now with digital resources at your fingertips the PLE redefines the ZPD.

Great scoop William. I think this is heading in the right direction. Using technology to guide learners not spoon feed them.
