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?

A New Poster on Integrating SAMR Model with iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Poster on Integrating SAMR Model with iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology "Empower Education" | Scoop.it
This is the second article I posted here on SAMR iPad apps in less than two weeks. Why? I love SAMR and I find it a very good pedagogical framework that teachers can draw on to not only integrate technology into their instruction but also assess the efficiency of this technology. And since iPad is a leitmotif in  today's learning, its alignment with SAMR model will definitely assist teachers in making the most of the educational potential of this versatile device. To this end , I am sharing with you this wonderful illustrative chart I stumbled upon on Apps in Education.
