Educational Leadership and the E-Learning Paradigm | Bostrom | Global Partners in Education Journal

Educational Leadership and the E-Learning Paradigm | Bostrom | Global Partners in Education Journal | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

School systems today need leaders who are technologically savvy and can navigate the online environment. They must also have skills ranging from financial and human resource management to outcomes measurement, and government relations-all with a solid grounding in ethics and personal conviction. Some educational leaders are concerned that the online environment does not have the same high quality as the campus environment, but comparing campus and online classes may be like comparing apples and oranges because there are differences in the type and caliber of learners who choose one delivery model over the other, and there are differences in personality and communication skills of campus instructors and online instructors. After careful consideration of the potential benefits and challenges of the e-learning paradigm, it is reasonable to conclude that when it is done well, e-learning can be authentic and active. Quality online programs and global partnerships enable best practices institutions to develop professional adult educators and invest in faculty development of scholar-practitioners.

Debunking the Myth about a Creative Destruction of Higher Education with Technology as the Driver

Debunking the Myth about a Creative Destruction of Higher Education  with Technology as the Driver | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
A variety of commentators are suggesting we are witnessing a major transformation in higher education.

Thomas Friedman, of the New York Times, has written that he sees the end of the university as we know it and the beginning of an “unbundling” of college and university education enabling any student to build their qualifications from courses taken anywhere in the world. Others, such as Clayton Christensen, are also writing about the creative destruction of higher education. Indeed, he suggests that:

“A creative destruction is happening in higher education with technology as the trigger and the driver.”

The basic proposition of these writers and commentators is that technology, along with shifts in the demographics of those attending colleges and universities and both societal and individual financial circumstances, created a “perfect storm” for colleges and universities and their response is to reinvent themselves and change the fundamentals of how they function.

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy). Despite the fact that Knowles' adult learning theory assumptions and principles were introduced in the 1980's, each can be utilized today to help eLearning professionals create more meaningful learning experiences for adult learners.

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 8:09 PM

In order for adult learners to be actively involved in their own learning, they must feel (and know) that they have a voice in regards to the content and delivery of their coursework. The degree to which learners determine how a course will play out is, of course, the prerogative of the instructor, but I think instructors who actively gauge the preparedness and receptivity of their adult learners are liable to get ones who are more engaged and grateful.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 8:13 PM

Scooped from Amos's Scoop.it page- Adult learning theory is very important to keep in mind when designing learning strategies for adult education. This is a very helpful resource to easily reference when designing instruction, in particular I would highlight the PURPOSE behind each module and activity and remembering that motivation is key with adult learners.

Samantha Patterson 7's curator insight, March 16, 9:05 PM

This is a good article about adult learning with eLearning. It provides information about Knowles' 5 adult learning theory assumptions that can be translated to modern day eLearning experiences.

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.


===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===


Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Universities and higher education systems worldwide are being transformed by new and changing actors, practices, programs, policies, and agendas. From notions of 'global competency' and 'international branch campuses,' to ever more common perceptions that international collaborative research is a desirable objective, through to the phenomena of bibliometrics, rankings and benchmarking that are framed and operate at a global scale, contexts are changing. This massive open online course (MOOC) itself, developed in Madison and Bristol and hosted on the Coursera platform in Silicon Valley, is a perfect case in point! Globalizing Higher Education and Research for the 'Knowledge Economy' is designed to help students better understand some of these complex changes.

Why hasn't technology revolutionised teaching in Higher Education? | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This weekend I’m reading Why hasn’t technology disrupted academics’ teaching practice? Understanding resistance to change through the lens of activity theory (Blin & Munro 2007). This is a follow up reading after having read Technology Enhanced Learning and teaching in higher education: What is ‘enhanced’ and how do we know? A critical literature review (Kirkwood & Price 2014),  which has highlighted to me how many technological interventions in learning and teaching are trying to replicate existing teaching and learning processes.

 

In this post I’d like to quickly explore a couple of ideas raised by Blin and Munro (2007) as to why learning technologies haven’t had more of an impact on how and where teaching and learning happens.

Serious Beats

Serious Beats | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
YourTurn! The Video-Game‹ is a music-based game and a social community for Viennese youth. Players engage in ›versus‹ battles on Facebook. Taking turns, they select snippets of Youtube (music) videos, which they append to a mutual DJ mix. Playing against each other leads to a shared and creative result; a DJ mix made by two players who previously did not know each other. Thus ›YourTurn!‹ brings together youth of different ethnicity, gender and place of residence who normally would not be in contact with one another. Thereby, music acts as cultural and identity-related tie. The sustained yield of the forming relationships is supported by a series of events and workshops.

›YourTurn! The Video-Game‹ is currently in development by Viennese games company Platogo. YourTurn! is available online since February 21st, 2012. Over a period of three months gameplay is be supported (i.a.) by workshops with DJs, events in youth centers, creating content on the Rec'n'Roll bus (a mobile recording studio) and a closing party where prizes are awarded for the best contributions to the game. A further highlight is an invitation to the most successful players to present their DJ mixes at GameCity, Austria's biggest video games festival held at Vienna city hall.

Degrees don’t matter anymore, skills do | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
More and more, employers are going to want to see some proof that a potential employee has actually gained particular skills. So certificates that can credibly attest to someone’s ability to write computer code, write a decent essay, use a spreadsheet, or give a persuasive speech are going to be worth more and more. And any training program that takes the need to maintain its own credibility seriously can help students gain those skills and certify them for employers in a way that bypasses the existing educational establishment.

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.


While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.


Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

  Re: Contact with School System Employees and Presence on School Property

Dear Ms. Cook:

     As you are very aware, I represent the Wilson County Schools. This letter is intended to provide you notice that you are no longer to communicate with school employees or set foot on the campus or property of the Wilson County Schools for any purpose whatsoever.

 

  Due to your harassing nature of communications with school employees, and your propensity to file unfounded complaints against school system employees, you are not to contact any school system employees or be present on the Wilson County Schools' property.  All communications regarding your pending due process petition, or otherwise involving any of your children, will be directed to, and received from, myself as the attorney for the Wilson County Schools. If you contact school system employees, they will not respond. If you disregard this letter and are present on school system property , you will be subject to criminal prosecution under the North Carolina criminal trespass laws (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ch. 14, Art. 22B). 


There are no circumstances under which school officials should have to fear baseless allegations or for their own safety, particularly from a parent with no children in the school system, while they are trying to go about their normal duties. There are significant potential consequences if you fail to regard this notice with the seriousness with which it is intended.


  The school system regrets that this action is necessary but adamantly believes it to be so, based on your conduct.


Ms. Dorothy Cook

Moore reviewing the evidence presented which included a portion of the"Due Process Petition  " required Court Case procedure  Resolution Meeting which took place 2.18/2013 Docket Number 13-EDC-07545 but changed by Wilson County Schools Attorney Rachel Hitch per said court documents to Docket Number 13-EDC-07547 allowed by NC OAH without proper procedures being filed. Officer S, Moore filed Police Report stating Dorothy Cook, Prose rep was" Assaulted" by Wilson County School Exceptional Children Director during the NC OAH required Court procedure.  There also was a complaint filed with the Wilson County Schools Board also. As well as with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearing as the case was a Special Education Contested Case filed Prose because of the indigent financial economic status of the family which as a result there was no financial means of paying for an attorney and all the "free" legal aid assistance including some neighboring area law schools that sometimes take cases of their interest had no available assistance and or such organizations as ECAC had limited intended issues they were assisting with and some was just simply not in the family jurisdiction to help. As the damages and harm done to Dorothy Cook by WCS Officials during and in direct relations with said NC OAH Special Education Contested Court Case 13-EDC-07545 was the reason that the presiding Judge Augustus Elkins allowed Prose Rep. Dorothy Cook to withdraw her case 13-EDC-07545 without prejudice as due to the severity of harm and damages done she could not continue with said case. As WCS attorney February 18,2013 dated letter and its effects did have and continue to have extreme negative effects even to the added point that the school aged children of Dorothy Cook is denied and deprived of their Human RIGHT to enroll and attend Wilson County Public School  a NC Public School  for several years continually as the results of the harm and damage done to their parent during and directly associated with said case and Wilson County Schools Officials she can no longer home her children and has given Wilson County Schools attorney and many others but non were or are Wilson County Schools Employees notice of such and they know as special needs children that education should be consistent but they are killing these children by educational neglect as NC Public Schools are not held accountable by NC Attendance Compulsory Law as the criminals they are and the NC BODY OF GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO ALLOW IT TO BE DONE but in the history of North Carolina their has never been a "WHITE" child(ren) and or their parent denied and deprived and education and made to receive no education at all that was school aged qualified , special needs qualified and a NC District Court Judge has stated per his findings in a separate but related court case that the parent had met all that is required by her per NC law for the child(ren) to be enrolled and attending NC Public Schools the LEA which the parent and her school age children reside in and has mad and continue to make requests for her children to be enrolled and attend Wilson County Public Schools to Rachel Hitch only per her February 18,2013 DATED LETTER OF REPRISAL  as written in part above but no such instruction has been provided and as a result even the more harm and damages occur daily as their determination to learn is destroyed as when hope is removed when no education at ALL continues and their hearts breaks they cry both inside and out and not even the Courts per Wilson ,NC District Attorney Office states has any jurisdiction to criminally prosecute the Wilson County Public Schools Officials as there is no law on the Book to prosecute them criminally by but there is for parents, guardians and students that apply by usage of NC Compulsory Attendance Law but again NC Public Schools Officials such as Wilson County Schools does not apply at all. As parent made contact with the Wilson County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services for help with getting child(ren) in school it was stated she was not unfit parent therefore their is nothing they can do as they have no jurisdiction over or in the Wilson County Schools System themselves. Parent contacted Juvenile Delinquency Department Wilson,NC , Mr. Mike Walston in regards to the children possibility of having charges filed against them well 1 child at that time as she still is a minor in elementary school grade but Mr. Mike Walston said It appears she was not allowed to attend school which makes the situation much different its not that she is not willing or trying to attend school so he didn't there would be any reason for charges against her as she is now 12 years old and her highest grade graduated is the 3th grade and 2014-2015 is the 3rd nc public school year she is being denied and deprived her right to attend nc public schools for complete nc public school yea at a time!   I ASK IS IT A CRIME OR NOT ?   THIS IS OPEN LETTER NC HAS BEEN ASKED TO CHANGE THE NC COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE LAW TO INCLUDE THE NCPUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AS THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER PARENT AND CHILDREN WITH A  CRIMINAL MEANS OF EQUAL PROSECUTION BEING AVAILABLE AS IT IS A CRIME THAT IS ONLY NOW IN NC PROSECUTIABLE CRIMINALLY BY LAW IF A PARENT , GUARDIAN AND OR STUDENT IS ALLEGED AS BEING IN VIOLATION OF IT BY NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AND AS SUCH THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS ARE ABUSING ITS POWER KNOWING THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED AND USING IT JIM CROW SWING SO LOW TO EDUCATE THE NIGGERS NOT AS NOT DONE IN PAST TIMES TO KEEP AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN FROM BEING EDUCATED IN THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEM !

What Are the Most Powerful Uses of Tech for Learning?

What Are the Most Powerful Uses of Tech for Learning? | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

When we talk about the digital divide in education, the discussions revolve mainly around two factors: lack of access to the internet and lack of knowing how to use that access in powerful ways that can fuel learning beyond consuming content.

There are a lot of powerful tools for change available to educators and plenty of creative, inspired educators working hard to put available technology to work in classrooms. A lack of excellence is not the problem in education; access to technology and guidance for participating in the digital space in powerful ways are much bigger challenges.

That is the message Karen Cator, president and CEO of Digital Promise and former head of the Office of Technology at the US Department of Education, is spreading around the country. “When we think about students who do not have access to these kinds of powered-up learning environments, that’s a problem,” Cator said at a presentation sponsored by SVForum, a non-profit that organizes ed-tech events. From Cator’s perspective, the digital learning gap can be broken down into three parts: access, participation and powerful use.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

One access it achieved the approach that teachers use to enable "powerful use" is the real factor for transformation...

There is a paucity of material available to support supervisors of honours and coursework dissertation students in Australian universities. Most universities provide policy and procedural documents relating to undergraduate, honours and master’s dissertation supervision, but limited information is provided on the practice of supervision. Previous research suggests a mismatch between supervisor and student expectations of the supervisory relationship and uncertainties surrounding good supervisory practice.

Making Classroom Learning Work for More Students

Making Classroom Learning Work for More Students | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The CEO of Enlearn argues that a digital curriculum that adjusts in real-time to the needs of individual students and teachers is the future of education.

 

"Recently, our partners at the Center for Game Science at the University of Washington found through their algebra challenges that nearly 95 percent of students participating were able to reach concept mastery of linear equations using the generative adaptive version of the content. But some students needed as much as six times the practice to reach those mastery levels. Furthermore, the additional practice material that any two students required was different—it was specific to each student’s unique learning pathway and progression. This means providing six times the content, tailored specifically to the moment-by-moment learning challenges of each student. A fixed text is incapable of generating any new content, let alone six times the content.

Interesting idea for ePortfolio pedagogy.  Maybe the idea is to consider andragogy and heutagogy as distinct from pedagogy, or at least an evolution from it.

7 competency-based higher ed programs to keep an eye on ~ Education Dive | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Competency-based education is a sometimes-controversial model that has gained ground in recent months.

"Advocates say competency-based ed puts the focus on students’ capabilities rather than how many hours per week they spend in the classroom. The benefit for employers, they say, is that prospective employees can be judged more easily, based on their demonstrated competencies rather than guessing how their grades will translate to real-world work. By one estimate, at least 200 institutions have competency-based education programs."
