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.
