The nurturing and social reform models of teaching and their relevance to connectivist online learning

The nurturing and social reform models of teaching and their relevance to connectivist online learning | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

These are the last of the teaching models discussed in Chapter 4 of my open textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital Age.’ What both these models, identified by Pratt (1998), have in common is a focus on the individual rather than on the teacher, the institution, or state. They are both in a sense attempts at liberating learners from the restrictions of formal and institutional types of education - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2014/08/09/the-nurturing-and-social-reform-models-of-teaching-and-their-relevance-to-connectivist-online-learning/#sthash.97t2Q6zd.dpuf

At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries

At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
A new future is coming to education. Online shopping, searching and social networks came first—education is next. OCLC's newest user perceptions study, At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries, explores how empowered consumers, fueled by economic incentives, are using online learning platforms and MOOCs to set new expectations for education—and for libraries. The report explores the behaviors, perceptions and motivations of online learners: how they are evaluating the cost/value trade-offs of higher education, how they are using and succeeding with online education—and their use and perceptions of the library.

Utopia series: the schools of the future | Philosophers' Mail

Utopia series: the schools of the future | Philosophers' Mail | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

It is almost universally agreed that education is hugely important. But we are not particularly sure what we want from it. Our large commitment to there being good schools ironically has not been matched by concern about what they are for.

The aim of education is to prepare students for adult life. So the role of schools should be thought through only after we have identified the challenges of adult life. If school is essentially conceived as a training, we need to explain what it is training for. What are the relevant difficulties and challenges that we need to be equipped to deal with?

Excellent challenging manifesto from Stephen Downes - todays online learning models are yesterdays with new names

NLafferty's curator insight, July 11, 5:54 AM
Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.
