To me Porters comment “I think the big risk in any new technology is to believe the technology is the strategy" is right. Institutions need to take an holistic view of all their delivery mechanisms to make the right choices for the right audience.

Peter Haydon Druery's curator insight, July 20, 12:45 AM

Couldn't agree more with this author. Most e-learning is developed using platforms that ignore the learner's learning preferences, characteristics and/or needs completely. The teacher really needs to know the learner if there is to be real engagement and educational motivation.

How Performance Support Apps Are Faring In Today’s Workplaces - Learnnovators - Bringing INNOVATION to E-LEARNING | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
We all know… this is the age of mobile apps! These are revolutionizing all aspects (personal and professional) of our lives. They have started capturing their space in our workplaces too. Thanks to the ubiquitous nature of mobile devices and the amazing power fuelled by their ever-expanding features, mobile apps are enabling us perform at our workplaces in ways never imagined before! Therefore, it is quite natural for these to be touted as one of the best forms of performance support for today’s workplaces. We, at Learnnovators, have been excited about leveraging this technology for workplace performance support (especially, in the context of ‘on-the-job learning’). We have been doodling about the possibilities this learning technique offers while developing cost effective and powerful mobile performance support solutions. Read on…

When will the Internet replace college? | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
It's no secret: the American education system is in the toilet.
John Clayton's insight:

The conclusion        "There's nothing you can learn for $30,000 on a college campus that you can'tget on the Internet for free. It's about time the world realize that instead of signing their life away for a sheet of paper signed by a glorified con man"         is pretty brutal!

Too many distractions and no real focus or teacher guided discipline. Put students in a face to face class room, use the resources to support rather than deliver, and they will do much better.

Los Angeles school district to shift away from Apple's iPad to Windows, Chromebook

Los Angeles school district to shift away from Apple's iPad to Windows, Chromebook | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
A report over the weekend confirmed the Los Angeles Unified School District is planning to switch up a $1 billion technology in education project, allowing certain high schools in its jurisdiction to choose from six different Windows and Chromebook laptops instead of Apple's iPad.
John Clayton's insight:

I totally agree with the statement "To have a one-device-fits-all approach does not make sense" Different learners, disciplines and capabilities require a "best-fit for purpose" approach rather than a "fit as best you can" technology mind-set ..

Behind Harvard’s explosion of online classes: a flurry of lights, camera, action - The Boston Globe

Behind Harvard’s explosion of online classes: a flurry of lights, camera, action - The Boston Globe | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
Quietly, Harvard has built what amounts to an in-house production company to create MOOCs, or massive open online courses, high-end online classes that prestigious universities have for the last two years offered for free to anyone in the world, generally without formal credit.
John Clayton's insight:

The investment in MOOCs still continue although the quote

"In just two years, the MOOC has gone through a high-speed cycle of hype and letdown, heralded as the future of higher education — maybe even the death of the traditional campus — before being dismissed as a fad"

sums it up for me.
