Generation Z is changing how work gets done

Generation Z is changing how work gets done | |
"That's who will start entering the workforce," she said of members of the generation born between 1994 and 2010 who entered the workforce for the first time in 2016. This generation is expected to make up almost one-fourth of the U.S. workforce by 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Her plan: arm herself with information to propel a conversation with managers on the importance of providing a collaborative environment, workplace flexibility, and more-frequent and more-substantive feedback to the company's 1,000 employees, whose workforce employs multiple generations.

"We're trying to be creative and provide what we think employees want tomorrow instead of giving them what they want today," she said. The company has headquarters in Lincolnshire, Ill., and its Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center in Mansfield, Texas.

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students

Poor digital leadership will see universities struggle to attract students | |
A survey of 1,000 16-24 year olds, commissioned by Jisc, found that three quarters (75%) of higher education students surveyed believe that having staff with the appropriate digital skills is an important factor when choosing a university. 99% of students think that technology is becoming increasingly important in education, while 62% believe technology keeps them more engaged.

These student survey results further reinforce the findings of a recent report published by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) and Jisc titled rebooting learning for the digital age. In the report both parties call on university leaders to embrace new technology to meet the challenges faced by the higher education sector.

The data revolution in education (2017)

The data revolution in education (2017) | |

Este informe parte de la siguiente consideración: “The production and dissemination of high quality education statistics is essential for effective planning, as well as for monitoring progress towards national and global education targets” (p.3). De este modo, se recomienda una data revolution in education construido sobre la base de los sistemas estadísticos nacionales, apoyado por las organizaciones internacionales en un pacto mundial para el seguimiento de la educación.


El informe comienza con un elenco de recomendaciones, ocho concretamente, que anticipan al lector a muchas de las conclusiones fundamentales. A través de una estructura con tres grandes capítulos se abordan temáticas como las brechas de datos y desafíos de la educación en el horizonte 2030, la revolución de los datos como respuesta a los desafíos actuales y el modo de financiar esta iniciativa.


Como grandes conclusiones, el informe señala la necesidad de mecanismos de financiación para investigar con evidencias a nivel nacional e internacional, la importancia de producir datos desde indicadores robustos y la oportunidad de apoyarse en los avances de la tecnología de la información para difundir los resultados y datos. En definitiva, el documento sugiere una revolución de los datos que permita aportar evidencia en una perspectiva internacional.

6 eLearning trends for Instructional Designers in 2017

6 eLearning trends for Instructional Designers in 2017 | |
The scope of Instructional Design has traveled a long way, as the ever-increasing awareness about the field is evident enough for its popularity. The significant accreditation bodies across the globe are only getting strict on different training institutes and educational bodies to prepare highly rigorous and demanding training programs for professional Instructional Designers.

The majority of the demand for Instructional Designers comes due to learning tools and technology associated with their work. Learners and students worldwide have showcased that the need for a sophisticated digital media for learning purposes is more than ever. The point is to acquire a better-than-before learner interaction and engagement with the study material. The diversity is called to allow students experience the learning phase in new formats and mediums.

Experienced educators and Instructional Designers are no longer content with the features of PowerPoint presentations, rather are in the constant hunt for creative ways to expel their message to learners around globe. The effort is to bridge the gap between the learners and the knowledge providers. While the trends below are those that Instructional Designers need to practice throughout 2017 in order to deliver content and knowledge in the most compelling manner.

It’s time to ask why online learning isn't working

It’s time to ask why online learning isn't working | |

Can online learning disrupt the status of higher education?

When I moved to Silicon Valley to study at Stanford University four years ago, I thought so. Enrollment in online courses at the college level had multiplied by nearly ten-fold from 2003 to 2013. The promise was that online learning could replicate the live classroom, but also make course content available to anyone at any time with a lower cost.


Today, the story is different. The answer to the question of whether online learning has revolutionized higher education is a clear “not yet.” A new study[i] shows that for students who have access to both online and in-person classes, taking online courses led to lower grades in their current and future courses. Those students are also less likely to remain enrolled in their institutions.


Another recent study[ii], which is quite controversial, argues that online learning in higher education is actually a waste of taxpayers’ money. It turns out that, in many cases, it is actually not much cheaper than in-person classes; besides that, the earnings students make later in life due to online course-taking compared with what they would have earned without online enrollment do not surpass the social costs online learning incurs.

Ecologies of Open: Inclusion, intersections, and interstices in education

Ecologies of Open: Inclusion, intersections, and interstices in education | |
We are excited to invite you to submit a proposal for a chapter in our edited book, Ecologies of open: Inclusion, intersections, and interstices in education. We intend to approach Athabasca University’s open press for publication in 2018. A description of the scope and intent of the book is presented below, followed by submission details:

Thinking about “open” almost automatically calls forth thinking about “closed” as if we must think in terms of binaries – closed/open, good/bad, black/white. But there is also another way.

“Open.” “Openness.” “Opening.” “Opened.” In the context of postsecondary and tertiary education, each of these nuances or forms/degrees of “open”/”openness”/”opening”/”opened” can refer to, inter alia, admission requirements, registration periods, flexibility in choices, open pedagogy, curricula, professional development, curriculum resources, assessment practices, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and research.

While it is possible to see “open,” “openness, “opening,” and “opened” as processes or statuses, we can also understand them in terms of multidimensional relationships and networks, where the status or process of “open,” “openness,” “opening,” and “opened” evolve in relation to other, often mutually constitutive or incommensurable factors in overlapping ecologies. We propose understanding ecologies of “open” in education as existing in the nexus of political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal frameworks and agendas and as entangled with contestation, incongruities and obstacles. Ecologies of “open” rest on and flow from shifting and often colliding tectonic layers of how we understand the world and humanity’s role in it, and how we define, teach and share our understanding of knowledge. However contradictory it sounds, ecologies of “open” do not only include but also, by definition, exclude.

Creative Instructional Design strategies for intensive learning

Creative Instructional Design strategies for intensive learning | |
Very often, training managers and their teams face the challenge of racing against time. Imagine that you and your team of trainers have to take up the challenge of getting 150 new hires acclimatized to their job roles, and ensure they get trained on the skills necessary to perform their job effectively. And, the time you have to complete the training is a mere 2 weeks. Now that’s what we call intensive training.

Now, imagine how terrifying this can be for learners, who are to attend this training boot camp. It is like training for the Ironman triathlon, a race that involves a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bicycle ride, followed by a 26.2 mile marathon. Attending an intensive learning program can challenge learners by forcing them to learn. The goal of training managers and instructional designers is to make this learning interesting.

With more organizations opting for e-learning and blended learning strategies for workforce training, here are some creative instructional design strategies that you could include in your online intensive learning programs.

TIC, identidad digital y educación ...

TIC, identidad digital y educación ... | |

La primera reflexión tiene que ver con el hecho de que en poco más de veinte años las tecnologías digitales se han convertido en omnipresentes en nuestra vida cotidiana, laboral y de ocio de un modo tan radical y profundo que podemos afirmar que el ecosistema mediático y comunicativo en el que vivimos es notoriamente distinto del que fue característico en el último cuarto del siglo XX. En este breve intervalo de tiempo hemos pasado de un modelo social donde los medios de comunicación de masas (el cine, la televisión, la prensa, …) eran hegemónicos y controlaban los discursos informativos que llegaban a todos los ciudadanos a otro modelo de producción y difusión de la información caracterizado por la multivariedad de procesos comunicativos personalizados mediante herramientas como Internet, PDA, email, telefonía móvil, GPS, MP3, Web 2.0, televisión digital, realidad aumentada, ebooks, Internet de las cosas … las cuales no tienen ni siquiera una década de existencia.

Is digital technology changing learning and teaching? The big debate from Digifest 2017

Is digital technology changing learning and teaching? The big debate from Digifest 2017 | |
The widespread availability of mobile and desk-based devices with incredible computing power and functionality means that learners are now able to consume and interact with learning content provided by their teachers, by their peers, and by individuals and organisations around the world. And they can do this in ways that were not possible before the widespread advent of the internet.

That’s a fundamental shift in the way that education is available to learners, not least because it makes it accessible to those who would have previously found it extremely difficult to enter formal education. On a global scale, people are now able to learn in ways that would not have been possible without digital technology, for example using massive open online courses (MOOCs).

I think there are three main things that digital technology is changing, none of which were imaginable before we started to integrate digital technology into education.

As automation threatens job market, employees opt for eLearning courses to upskill

As automation threatens job market, employees opt for eLearning courses to upskill | |
With the threat of automation looming over the job market, many employees are looking to upskill themselves in order to avoid getting pink slips. As bots start doing humans' work and skill sets get redundant, online certification and courses can help employees stay up to date with technology.

Started in 2010, Intellipaat is a platform that provides online e-learning courses on big data, business intelligence, data science, cloud and business courses like Hadoop, building recommendation engine, python and many more.

Sharing his e-learning experience, ISS Softech employee Nitesh Kumar Dash, said, “I had applied for a combination of courses including Big Data and Hadoop, which helped me get a Big Data job at my firm. Usually, people with a lot of experience are hired for such jobs but I got the opportunity with 2.5 years experience due to the online course.”

Looking at the positive side of automation, Dinesh Goel, CEO & Co-Founder of Aasaanjobs says, “Automation has been revolutionary for the tech industry and it’s not just taking away jobs but generating new ones. Only way this opportunity can be grabbed, should the employees decide to upskill themselves in the technologies they work in.”

Conquering Content Curation: Best practices for Instructional Designers

Conquering Content Curation: Best practices for Instructional Designers | |

With the impressive array of content available from online sources and beyond, it’s no longer necessary to create everything from the bottom up. It’s also not feasible to do everything yourself when technology and everything else moves so quickly. Content curation allows Instructional Designers to use existing material while putting their spin on it to give learners added value.

Content curation is the scrapbooker’s approach to eLearning design. Instead of writing content entirely from scratch, a variety of elements goes into successful curation. These items are gathered, considered and formed into a cohesive unit intended to achieve a specific outcome.

But wait... before continue reading, if you are still not sure about why start curating content for eLearning, read this article Why Should You Adopt Content Curation as an L&D Strategy? (And How to Do It)

Higher education students not prepared for digital workplace

Higher education students not prepared for digital workplace | |

Our young people are touted as a tech-savvy cohort who have grown up with the internet and smart devices, but is the UK higher education (HE) system equipping them for life in the modern workplace?


While 81.5% of university students feel that digital skills will be important in their chosen career, only half believe that their courses prepare them well for the digital workplace. These are sobering statistics considering the well-documented technical skills gap in the UK and that good digital skills are becoming increasingly vital in the workplace. 


Our new student digital experience tracker survey (pdf) sheds light on the digital skills, habits and attitudes of today’s higher education learners. 


The results show that the use of technology in teaching and assessment is not fully embedded into practice. Highlighting an apparent mismatch between the skills required by employers and those that students are familiar with, or believe are necessary, the report warns:

6 common misunderstandings about Assessment

6 common misunderstandings about Assessment | |
Over the past two decades there has been a lot written, and much discussion, around the use effective use of assessment in the classroom.

Unfortunately many educators, particularly at the secondary school level, continue to cling tenaciously to “traditional” practices which are, at best ineffective and at worst, counterproductive to the goals of modern education. Here are six common misconceptions about assessment and evaluation that we could stand to rethink.

¿Es posible aprender con apoyo de las redes sociales?

¿Es posible aprender con apoyo de las redes sociales? | |

Actualmente las redes sociales han alcanzado gran popularidad, sobre todo en la población joven en edad laboral. Basta con observar a nuestro alrededor, en nuestros sitios de trabajo; en algún momento algún colaborador detendrá sus actividades laborales para compartir, comentar, publicar o contestar un mensaje. El uso de las redes sociales, como fenómeno social, ha sido estudiado por diversos investigadores; incluso se cuentan con datos estadísticos que permiten conocer el grado de impacto que éstas han tenido desde su aparición hasta nuestros días:

Algunas de las preguntas más relevantes de los estudios realizados acerca del impacto de las redes sociales son: ¿Cómo aprovechar la popularidad de las redes sociales en los procesos formativos eLearning?, ¿Es posible aprender con apoyo de las redes sociales?

A pesar de que probablemente las redes sociales impliquen una distracción para los colaboradores, siempre es importante reconocer las posibilidades y oportunidades de una situación que a primera vista puede parecer negativa. Seguramente habrá publicaciones o funciones en las redes sociales que son un distractor; sin embargo, es un hecho que una persona aprende mejor cuando es capaz de:

[PDF] Promises and pitfalls of Online Education

[PDF] Promises and pitfalls of Online Education | |

Online courses have expanded rapidly and have the potential to extend further the educational opportunities of many students, particularly those least well-served by traditional educational institutions. However, in their current design, online courses are difficult, especially for the students who are least prepared. These students’ learning and persistence outcomes are worse when they take online courses than they would have been had these same students taken in-person courses. Continued improvement of online curricula and instruction can strengthen the quality of these courses and hence the educational opportunities for the most in-need populations.


Online courses offer the promise of access regardless of where students live or what time they can participate, potentially redefining educational opportunities for those least well-served in traditional classrooms. Moreover, online platforms offer the promise, through artificial intelligence, of providing the optimal course pacing and content to fit each student’s needs and thereby improve educational quality and learning. The latest “intelligent” tutoring systems, for example, not only assess students’ current weaknesses, but also diagnose why students make the specific errors. These systems then adjust instructional materials to meet students’ needs.


Yet today these promises are far from fully realized. The vast majority of online courses mirror face-to-face classrooms with professors rather using technology to better differentiate instruction across students. As one new study that we completed with our colleagues Lindsay Fox and Eric Taylor shows, online courses can improve access, yet they also are challenging, especially for the least well-prepared students. These students consistently perform worse in an online setting than they do in face-to-face classrooms; taking online courses increases their likelihood of dropping out and otherwise impedes progress through college.

Edumorfosis's insight:

If we translate bad pedagogical practices of face to face teaching to online learning, the results will be worse. We need to think about a digital pedagogy and disruptive education for a knowmad society...

Why a Robot-Filled Education future may not be as scary as you think

Why a Robot-Filled Education future may not be as scary as you think | |
The robots are coming, and some of them are charming. That was my reaction on a recent visit to Singularity University, when I met two robots named Pris and Pepper. Even though her “brain” was turned off when I met Pris, she was still able to sit on the floor, cock her head, blink, and follow my words and my body with her head. At times, she would even blink with a tinge of pink in her eyes. The effect was uncanny, engaging, and almost flirtatious.

The Do’s and Don’ts of giving an effective presentation

The Do’s and Don’ts of giving an effective presentation | |
When it comes to presentations, no matter what industry you’re in, creating that first impression and providing a presentation that will win over your audience comes with its pressures. Standing in front of that audience and involving them in what you’re saying is important in the success of any presentation. If you have great content, your presentation has a great starting point for success and will help to give you confidence as a presenter.

The content of your slides will set the scene of your presentation, where the words used really do matter. You also need to take into consideration all three elements of physical communication when presenting – words, tone of voice and body language. With the right preparation and the right attitude, you can channel your nerves and improve your confidence. Words, tone of voice and body language all must be in harmony with each other for effective communication. For an interesting and gripping presentation, your words need to be interesting, as well as your tone of voice and you should engage with the audience with your body language to keep it interesting as well.
