A Framework for Cul/va/ng High-­‐Quality Blended Learning at the State Level

The Learning Accelerator (TLA), a nonprofit organization supporting the implementation of high-quality blended learning in school districts and states across the U.S., and the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) today announced an ambitious initiative to make Rhode Island the first fully “blended-learning state” in the nation. The announcement coincides with the release of TLA’s Framework for Cultivating High-Quality Blended Learning at the State Level, which outlines steps states can take to catalyze blended learning.

Tin Can API | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The Tin Can API (sometimes known as the Experience API or xAPI) is a brand new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has (online and offline). This API captures data in a consistent format about a person or group’s activities from many technologies. Very different systems are able to securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using Tin Can’s simple vocabulary.

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice - Research Alliance for NYC Schools - NYU Steinhardt

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice - Research Alliance for NYC Schools - NYU Steinhardt | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Digital Collaboration and Classroom Practice presents our findings, including insights on why educators did or did not use Connect; what might have made Connect more useful; and what external tools educators use for similar purposes.

Among our key findings:

Administrators and teachers with school-wide roles used Connect much more heavily than teachers who did not hold school-wide roles.The educators who used ARIS Connect most frequently did so because they felt it was required as part of the NYC DOE’s Inquiry process (in which teams meet regularly to develop data-based strategies for addressing the needs of struggling students).Educators reported a number of obstacles to using Connect, including confusion about its purpose, a lack of training, and technical challenges.Educators use other online tools to fill three basic functions: communicating with students, sharing files, and searching for resources. 

The brief delves further into each of these findings, offering lessons and recommendations for NYC and other school districts as they develop new tools aimed at improving classroom instruction.

Game-Based mLearning: Develop Learning in Hours, not Weeks | Game On! Learning | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Moving in the direction of mobile learning?  Working to enable your traditional eLearning courses to run on tablets and smartphones?  Consider another direction.  Unless your eLearning offerings draw rave reviews from your workforce, moving them to a mobile device only makes it more convenient for your employees to access marginally effective training.

Raise the bar on your online training as you go mobile.  Produce more effective, more engaging mLearning in a fraction of the time required to develop unengaging eLearning.  How fast?  How about 8 hours to produce training with 10 distinct learning activities?  With built-in addictive learning games, extensive leaderboard capabilities, and the most extensive analytics on the market.

The 2014 NMC Technology Outlook for Australian Tertiary Education: A Horizon Project Regional Report reflects a collaborative research effort between the NMC and Open Universities Australia to help inform Australian education leaders about significant developments in technologies supporting teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in tertiary education. This report was produced to explore emerging technologies and forecast their potential impact expressly in a tertiary education context. In the effort that took place from January through March 2014, a carefully selected panel of experts was asked to consider hundreds of relevant articles, news, blog posts, research, and project examples as part of the preparation that ultimately pinpointed the most notable emerging technology topics, trends, and challenges for Australian tertiary education over the next five years. View the work the produced the report and meet the expert panel at aus.wiki.nmc.org.

The PC is dying, long live the PC! These headlines have been thrown around for years, as sales of laptops and desktops have continually dwindled downward.
Kim Flintoff's insight:
The implications for learning engagement are significant. Recent data suggests that mobile engagement can potentially target 93% of the world's population. Learning design must shift to accommodate these growing patterns for engagement - instructional design and knowledge of more dynamic mobile platforms will need to become more common. Universities are still a decade or more behind current trends. What will blended and elearning look like in another few years if anyone takes notice of this?

LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, July 31, 12:27 AM

"(...) There are two important conclusions from the research: 1. Even for the sole purpose for which lectures may be effective – the transmission of information – the 50 minute lecture needs to be well organized, with frequent opportunities for student questions and discussion. (Bligh provides excellent suggestions on how to do this in his book.) 2. For all other important learning activities, such as developing critical thinking, deep understanding, and application of knowledge – the kind of skills needed in a digital age – lectures are ineffective. Other forms of teaching and learning – such as opportunities for discussion and student activities – are necessary. (...)"

It was a revolution moving higher education from bricks to clicks… and now it's started to go back to bricks again.

Online university providers, which offered people the chance to study from home, are turning full circle by creating a network of learning centres where students can meet and study together.

Instead of demolishing the dusty old classrooms, the online university revolution is responsible for opening some new ones.
