A teacher's guide to eLearning Online Class by MMVC11

A teacher's guide to eLearning Online Class by MMVC11 | Moodlemoot | Scoop.it

Dr. Mark Winegar's new book is a call to action and opens with the following paragraphs:

"The cry of crisis in education sounds like a bad cliche. Its been made so often one feels like the shepherd boy who cried wolf once too often but our situation is dire unless we respond with curiosity, enthusiasm, and imagination. Fortunately we are good at that!

Gutenberg's printing press caused a paradigm shift in education and society in the 15th century by making information available to the masses. The Roman Catholic church failed to recognize the significance of the printing press and lost its dominance over Europe. Our institutions find themselves in the same situation today.

We are facing a digital tsunami unless we learn to use the Internet and Web 2.0 applications to our best advantage. We need to transform our educational system to preserve it. There is much to gain but change is so easy to resist."

The book offers a menu of Web 2.0 teaching strategies to consider when planning your courses.

New Technologies have changed the way we learn and socialize with each other. The web greatly facilitates the access to data and information but also generates some difficulties on finding what it could be or not of use for our inquiring. Information has stopped from being written and asynchronous to become visual and synchronous. Contents have stopped from being lineal and authored to become fragmented and social. Users have sopped being consumers of contents to become creators of contents. As a result, the web is complex, dynamic and in constantevolution. Adapting to it, requires understanding its functioning mechanism and knowing how to use the resources in it efficiently. In this sense, this course offers its participants the literacies needed to adapt to the new environments efficiently.
