QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn

QUODL - Quality of Online & Distance Education: The Rules of eLearning: Learners need to learn how to learn | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it

LearnerAgain I think the ‘cover-all’ term should be learner.  I think most of the other terms place the learner in a secondary position to the teacher, which is often not the case.  How many of us have experienced that moment when our children or grandchildren show us how to use the latest technology, play the latest game (online or physical) or use the latest terminology?  More recently, the idea of the teacher/student relationship has been ‘adjusted’ by the advent of online learning and the opening up of education generally to older learners.  Perhaps universities are the last bastion of the tutor/student relationship but even here there is a move towards mentorship – “the guide on the side” is now a well-developed idea in higher education. 

So what is the role of the (online) learner?

Teachers who are fighting for stronger tech integration in their schools often come against opposition from people who believe technology not have a positive effect on student learning. This is particularly true with iPads, devices that many people see as a device for content consumption, not creation. Below is a list of studies into iPads and learning, with dot points about what students the study relates to, the subjects involved and the results.
