A great overview of how to be purposeful in developing an online learning course

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 2014 8:34 PM

This article highlights what has been happening within the organisations of information overload.  Again, the facilitator has to go back and clearly understand what you want the learners to know.

 

Far too much time  is wasted on mandatory training and often employees will skip the revision and just do the quiz at the end of the session so we can tick the box of completion.

A pedagogy of abundance or a pedagogy to support human beings? Participant support on massive open online courses | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

A pedagogy of abundance or a pedagogy to support human beings? Participant support on massive open online courses | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning | Learning about E-learning | Scoop.it

This paper examines how emergent technologies could influence the design of learning environments. It will pay particular attention to the roles of educators and learners in creating networked learning experiences on massive open online courses (MOOCs).

 

The research shows that it is possible to move from a pedagogy of abundance to a pedagogy that supports human beings in their learning through the active creation of resources and learning places by both learners and course facilitators.

 

This pedagogy is based on the building of connections, collaborations, and the exchange of resources between people, the building of a community of learners, and the harnessing of information flows on networks.

 

This resonates with the notion of emergent learning as learning in which actors and system co-evolve within a MOOC and where the level of presence of actors on the MOOC influences learning outcomes.

The Touch-Screen Generation

The Touch-Screen Generation | Learning about E-learning | Scoop.it

To date, no body of research has definitively proved that the iPad will make your preschooler smarter or teach her to speak Chinese, or alternatively that it will rust her neural circuitry—the device has been out for only three years, not much more than the time it takes some academics to find funding and gather research subjects. So what’s a parent to do?

Laura Burton's curator insight, March 22, 2013 1:54 AM

This article discusses technology for children and the way they play their games on things like iPad's tablets and more. Research has shown that since children started playing mind rattling games on these resources they have improved their ability to learn at a young age. This is why it is important that applications for children continue to advance. So if you read this article you will realize that this form of technology is important.
