A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this 'pedagogy.' What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education."

I like this sober assessment. It moves beyond both the breathless predictions and harsh criticisms of the first round of discussions on education.

John Zuluaga's curator insight, February 22, 10:21 PM

As long as teachers promote independence and other life skills in learners, technology becomes useful and practical. The fact of encouraging learners to be active participators and critical thinkers depend on teachers (how we teach and how we take advantage of the available materials); besides, it is important to highlight that our teaching styles and their efficiency are reflected on learners' outcomes. If a methodology is not longer functional in class, it will be necessary to implement other options. 


 


In this century, technology must be as functional as our teaching style. Electronic devices, virtual tools, social networks, etc. are playing an important role in global education; our job is being able to employ those offered tools by making them useful and innovating; therefore, our learners will be engaged in their own learning process.
