The digital future has arrived for further education – let’s get on board | TES | eLearning Innovations Conference & Expo | Scoop.it

"...This does not mean the end of face-to-face learning, but hopefully a balanced blend of learning that’s more responsive to student and employer needs. This time, we are ready for a paradigm shift in how learning programmes are designed, delivered and assessed.

These area-based deliberations are set in a context of drastic cuts to the FE budget, so it’s important to remember that technology-enhanced blended learning is not a cheap option.

 

Any realignment of learning vision, leadership, culture, design, methodology, pedagogy and assessment may require upfront investment in infrastructure and human resources. But it has the potential to deliver long-term efficiencies by opening up opportunities to a greater number of learners – with a different paradigm for learning and a differently skilled workforce.

 

If we continue to mismatch inappropriate physical assets with inappropriate workforce skills, we are at risk of repeating earlier mistakes. If colleges are to avoid going the way of Comet and Woolworths, their leaders need to learn these lessons..."

To begin, I agree that it is important to actually listen and respond to the feedback you and your company receive through social media, otherwise, what's the point? Customers want their opinions to be heard, so it's important to take the time to hear their input and then take action. Secondly, I can honestly say that social advertising and email updates are not very appealing to me, however, if the message is short and to the point, and has somewhat of an intriguing factor in it, it may grab my attention. Also, and again this is just a personal opinion, but I feel like adding a little humor never hurts. Lastly, I agree that it is important to keep tabs and documentation of your social media links and pages, because that is how you will be able to keep track of what is successful and what is not.

This article discusses five trends that are expected to arise in social media marketing during the year of 2014.  The trends include: the importance of social listening, social advertising, the integration of email and social media, the assembly of a social media team, and social media return on investment.  While reading the article, I was intrigued by the discussion of the relationship between email and social media.  With the rise in popularity of social media, most (including myself) would think that email is booming obsolete in terms of creating relationships with companies.  I consider email to be a platform for communicating with coworkers and friends, but not really a popular way to communicate with current and potential customers.  This article claims that companies can encourage email subscribers to connect on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, creating more social visibility.  It claims that by sending an email, the company has more control over their relationships and can extend them.  I am not sure if I agree with this point 100%, as I am a firm believer in two way communication and it is unlikely that a customer will reply to an email sent by a business.  I also felt that the discussion on social media ROI was interesting, as it seems that measurements are still confusing to companies and we're still unsure how beneficial social media marketing is.  It is important to have a measurable goal and to understand the preferences of the target market in order to be able to measure any kind of return on investment.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 24, 2013 8:52 AM

Designing meaningful and engaging lessons (for any form of delivery, including eLearning) is a task that every good instructional designer seeks to master. Teaching lower-school students is a privilege that quickly makes you realize that the approach you take when conveying an idea is just as important as the idea itself. An approach that I have found most successful is threefold:

  • Be clear and concise
  • Use visuals
  • Excite the imagination.
