Why Blended Learning Is Better

Why Blended Learning Is Better | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
Blended learning is a buzz word that’s been thrown around quite a bit lately and brings together the best of both classroom learning and elearning. In fact it seems to be the ideal solution all-around as it appeals to all learning styles, circumstances, needs and demands. It combines the support of classroom learning with the flexibility of elearning.

Worth looking at for the nice matrix from Ontario Ministry of Education

"Our colleges and universities continue to organize their schedules, policies, services, and curricular pathways around traditional students, although a substantial majority, even in the 18-to-24 year old segment, do not fit this profile".

Marczewski’s Gamification User Types

Marczewski’s Gamification User Types | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
Whilst many people are aware of Bartle’s Player Types, they may not be aware that Richard Bartle himself is of the opinion they do not translate well to non MMO games or non game related systems – especially gamified systems. As such, I went back to the drawing board to look closer at motivations that may drive users within gamified systems and how they can be used to design better experiences.
John Clayton's insight:

I think the sentence."The point of the Gamification User Types was to give people a better understanding of why and how people would use a system and how you could better engage with them". 

sums up why we should be seriously looking at these models.

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong.
John Clayton's insight:

Agree with the conclusion "Blooms 21 actively places learning where it should be, in the hands of the learner".

British MOOC, first in country to give option of paying for credit, gets no takers | Inside Higher Ed

British MOOC, first in country to give option of paying for credit, gets no takers | Inside Higher Ed | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
John Clayton's insight:

For those that think credentialing MOOCs will provide a platform for the future, this Edge Hill example may make them re-think.  The idea that "Learning Centres" will replace traditional institutions is based on a concept that individuals want to build to "qualifications". Emerging conceptions of micro-credentials indicate, at least in the vocational education sector, individuals want to acquire valued skills (such as working at heights, working in confined spaces) that will increase employment opportunities and not bloated qualifications.

Acclaim Open Badges :: Pearson VUE

Acclaim Open Badges :: Pearson VUE | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
Pearson’s Open Badge platform, Acclaim, translates learning outcomes and job-ready skills into web-enabled representations of credentials. Acclaim Open Badges can be shared over a variety of social media platforms and easily validated online.
John Clayton's insight:

It seems as if the concept of mass-customisation / micro-credentials / badges is at last making it to the mainstream.  This of course means platforms that display badges (i.e. portfolio systems) will be the next cab of the ranks.

Massive Open Online Courses are too rigorous for the average online student and too large to successfully engage and motivate most students, Stanford University President John Hennessy said.
John Clayton's insight:

At last, even the biggest promoters of MOOCs recognise learners have to be engaged and motivated to be successful. Customised learning environments through micro-credentials are a logical way to engage and motivate. Watch this space..

John Clayton's insight:

The 2014 New Horizon report is worth a read. I really like there "Elements of the Creative Classroom Research Model" (p4) which I think demonstrates that the "context" (atmosphere, ethos, environment) has more impact on learner success than the "connection" (actual physical and virtual space mechanics). But, I am preaching to the converted :)

Online College Courses That Fit Into Your Degree Program | StraighterLine | Emerging Technologies in Vocational Education and Industry Training | Scoop.it
Earn your college degree from the best universities with high-quality online college courses from StraighterLine guaranteed to fit into your degree program.
John Clayton's insight:

This is could be that Mass-Customised application that really disrupts educational institutions. It allows participants to personalise the courses they take from a range of institutions. They can then gain the appropriate credential.from an institution of their choice. In essence a degree based on cross institutional recognised "standards".

in NZ we have the recognised standards (NZQA) but do institutions have the capacity and infastructure to enrol learners in "micro-credentials" that will ultimately lead to a qualification. Or, are we forvever stuck in the, you can only enroll for the full qualification, mode? .

John Clayton's insight:

The presuure continues to provide specific training in the workplace. These "micro-courses" increase the appeal of "micro-credentials". This micro-credentialing will have a significant impact on those institutions offering monolithic all or nothing course offerings.
