How to be Digitally Literate in an Era of Fake News

How to be Digitally Literate in an Era of Fake News | Higher education | Scoop.it
I have given up my print subscription to various news and magazines sites in favor of their digital platforms. This fits with my desire to have the most up to date news, travel-friendly options, and to keep a lower eco footprint. However, what has sprung up and been the topic of much debate is the prevalence of fake news, especially on social media platforms such as Facebook.

The Intrapreneurs are coming! 7 reasons you shouldn't be scared of grassroots learning movements

The Intrapreneurs are coming! 7 reasons you shouldn't be scared of grassroots learning movements | Higher education | Scoop.it
In Jane Hart’s recent post, the Rise of the Intrapreneurs, she talks about stalemate habits where L&D teams still try to provide overall learning content centrally. These habits emphasize ‘DOING things to people (and making sure they do it)’ rather than ‘SUPPORTING them as they do things for and by themselves’.

Bubbling under the surface, however, is the rise of the intrapreneurs — people within business who continuously want to learn and create new things, driving business change from the ground up. Here are 7 reasons we think not only encouraging but empowering grassroots learning movements makes good business sense. And we’ve added some of our favorite tools to help that movement, and you, flourish.

Online Learning as a viable option for building Real Time Skills

Online Learning as a viable option for building Real Time Skills | Higher education | Scoop.it
Should you enroll in an online course or program? For the last twenty years there were two primary reasons for saying “yes”–convenience and access.

For busy people juggling jobs, family and other responsibilities, the convenience of logging on and being in class on one’s own schedule trumped whatever shortcomings were associated with online learning.

Think about it, you could rush from work, grab an unhealthy meal at a drive through, eat it in your car, sit through your scheduled class and then rush to get home in the hopes that you might see your kids before they went to sleep. The online learner, in contrast, could get home, have dinner with family, tuck the kids in and then log in at nine or ten p.m. and become a student. It was a no brainer and millions of non-traditional age adults signed up.

[PDF] A 2016 look at the future of Online Learning | Higher education | Scoop.it

Predicting the future of technology is always difficult and most predictions are problematic. This does not prevent a great many people from making them. There is a long catalogue of such predictions, some of which were insightful and many were farcical. But there are patterns of development which we can see, which are likely to continue. Rather than making predictions, here we will look at seven key patterns, which will shape the emerging technologies for learning.

The why’s and how’s of Social Learning in the workplace

The why’s and how’s of Social Learning in the workplace | Higher education | Scoop.it
Social Learning is not a new concept that has just come out of the factory—cloaked in layers of jargons and giving off the appearance of something that is impossible to wrap your wits around. We have been learning socially since ages and doing great at it; we just didn’t know it till Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory started to gain prominence in recent times.

According to this theory, we learn best when we observe another person and imitate his behavior and actions. When we see our “role models” better their lives and that of others with their actions, we are inspired to learn more.

You follow your favorite blogs to learn new ways of writing and how the masters play with the language. You follow art and photography sites to pick up Photoshop tricks and learn DSLR hacks. At work, you observe your peers and seniors to learn the tricks of the trade. We read self-development write-ups to learn how the achievers in our society begin their day, keep away distractions at work, and remain consistently productive. We are learning “socially” almost always.

5 teaching techniques in the Virtual Classroom

5 teaching techniques in the Virtual Classroom | Higher education | Scoop.it
Teaching and learning are a fast changing form. Technology has opened doors of learning wide, and as a result the classroom, the learners, and the instructors are all changed beings today. It cannot be denied that learners today differ in competence and motivation levels at all learning platforms, be it a classroom or an eLearning module. The exposure to newer technologies has led to a gap between the levels of teaching or instruction that a learner expects and what the instructor is able to impart. In such an environment it becomes difficult to attract and sustain the learner’s interest in the subject matter. Traditional classroom teaching requires a board for the teachers to demonstrate. Other teaching aids like charts, graphs, or flash cards are also used. Keeping these time tested dictates in mind, the virtual classroom has been created, using the internet or intranet as the link. This “classroom” is similar to a traditional classroom of schools and colleges. The difference is in its methodology of imparting the same course of teaching; while the teacher probably still uses a board (a digital whiteboard, in this case), he or she has the choice of using a number of aids to make the lesson more lively and interactive.

[PDF] The state of opportunity: Overcoming the wage crisis in today's labor market

[PDF] The state of opportunity: Overcoming the wage crisis in today's labor market | Higher education | Scoop.it
Although the global financial crisis ended years ago, dissatisfaction with the economy persists around the world. In the United States, despite a labor market recovery that has seen big payroll gains and the jobless rate cut in half, surveys show many people feel the recession never ended—and many employers complain that they struggle to fill roles. Meanwhile, in the US and Europe we see wild-card political candidates tapping into popular discontent, upending establishment figures and institutions.
 
On a deep level, many people feel that the opportunities available to them are dwindling. This sense is perhaps confirmed by analysts who note that the economy is growing more “polarized,” with a fewhigh-skill, highly paid people at the top, and a large number of low-skill, poorly paid people at the bottom. Meanwhile the middle continues to shrink.
 
In fact, according to the US Census Bureau (2015), incomes have been stagnant in the US for three years in a row, following twoyears of big declines, while nearly 47 million Americans are living in poverty. Recent research from Pew Research Center (2016)found that in 2014 the median income before taxes had declined by 13% since 2004—even as expenditures had increased by almost 14%. In practice this means the average household in the bottom third of earners had $1,500 left after expenses in 2004 but were $2,300 in debt in 2014.
 
In other words, the economic crisis may be over, but the wage crisis persists—and this is a global trend. Even as productivity has risenworldwide, wages have remained stagnant, causing many to question whether this is a permanent feature of the post-recession economy. It’s little wonder, then, that so many people are anxious about their futures.

[PDF] Next Gen Pedagogy: IDEAS for Online and Blended Higher Education

[PDF] Next Gen Pedagogy: IDEAS for Online and Blended Higher Education | Higher education | Scoop.it

The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) commissioned the FUTURA (Future of University Teaching: Update and a Roadmap for Advancement) project, in collaboration with its eLearn Center, with the overarching goal of providing a 'roadmap' to inform strategic planning for the future of online and blended higher education. It achieved this through an exploratory search and identification of trends and innovations in online, blended and lifelong learning provision globally, with a focus on pedagogy and the analysis of related institutional examples in the higher education sector. This led to the development of a five-part framework for describing next-generation pedagogy, which can be summarised in the acronym IDEAS: Intelligent, Distributed, Engaging, Agile and Situated.

5 ways to humanize the eLearning experience

5 ways to humanize the eLearning experience | Higher education | Scoop.it
eLearning is big. But how big exactly? According to a recent study, “the number of students taking at least one online course increased by over 570,000 to a new total of 6.7 million”. That’s almost a 1000% increase over 10 years. Our hair doesn’t even grow that fast. But despite the increase in students, dropout rates are still pretty high. Something’s not right there. A few years ago, I took an online language course. My motivation during the course? Low. It just didn’t keep me engaged like a real human could in a physical classroom. Of course, this doesn’t mean that online learning can’t be engaging. (Hands up if you ever completely switched off during a “real” class because the teacher was just super boring.) It got me thinking. How can you humanize the eLearning experience? And what comes to mind when we talk about the human experience? Connection, empathy, engagement?
