Future Models of Learning - Debate

Future Models of Learning - Debate | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

Does new technology conflict with or complement established teaching and learning? What is the impact on the teaching profession as we have traditionally known it? Will the power of the internet, with new innovations such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), create an unstoppable ‘avalanche’ of education reform, or are these reforms a false revolution? Can the value of face-to-face quality learning and student-teacher relationships ever really be questioned, at any level of education? Will the class room, lecture theatre, and traditional notion of education space – schools and universities – be usurped by a screen, online and distance learning, or alternative spaces such as the workplace, home, or concert-hall?

The discussion is more than a hour so make sure you're comfortable before you start viewing.

It should complement. Art and the French language provide a word for what should happen: bricolage. Bricolage is the blending of two materials, in this case traditional and new pedagogy, in ways that might infuse them. A philosophical approach might to use Gadamer and Vico to discuss sensus communis which is the common sense of a community based on wisdom and creativity.

 

The format is interesting as it is similar to a Ethnograhic Futures Research format gone viral.

Why online education is mostly a fantasy

Why online education is mostly a fantasy | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

In the end, MOOCs and online programs primarily help those who are self motivated to learn, and the vast majority of these people would have figured out how to educate themselves, whether in college or on their own, regardless of whether or not online courses are available.

There need not be a dichotomy of online learning and having the personalized attention of a teacher/coach. This article, and others like it, are misguided if their point is that online education will forever remain a fantasy; they are valuable articles in that they correctly note what's limiting and/or dysfunctional now to set us on course to the new "reality" of online and blended learning being superior to traditional "brick and mortar" education.

интернет-обучение - преимущественно фантазии. Оно подходит только для мотивированных, целеустремленных, склонных к самостоятельному поиску знаний

Learning has almost always been a social endeavor... online learning that approximates such...is potentially more effective...
