Annalisa Manca's curator insight, January 16, 2014 10:33 AM

"Moocs are depicted as a disruptive technology because they involve no ongoing teaching expenses and cost the same to run no matter how many students enrol. But the idea that “content is free” in education is one of several myths that have helped to inflate the bubble of hype."

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design | New Technologies in Language Learning &Teaching | Scoop.it

The key concept in all these initiatives is collaborative design. Collaboration and design have been increasingly promoted and explored in the years following the emergence of the WWW mostly because of the alignment of network technologies, a growing interest for the socially situated and communal nature of work and learning, and the development of design-based research as a promising approach to foster innovations in education. The notion of “communities of practice” has certainly provided useful conceptual tools to understand teaching as composed of a joint enterprise, a shared repertoire of knowledge and artifacts, and mutual engagement in community activities, roles, and relationships.

Collaborative design is certainly an area that's close to my heart and at the core of the true power of the internet and online learning.

Evelyn Izquierdo's curator insight, June 22, 2013 3:53 PM

Collaboration in a must when using ICT. Based on that purpose, communities of practice become useful spaces to share, learn and grow together professionally. If you are starting in the ICT field, I recommend you to websearch about "well known" or "recognized" communities in your teaching field; as well as creating a Twitter  account, so you can start building your personal learning network (PLN). Follow the leaders in your field, very soon you will be participating in collaborative projects; sharing ideas, resources and materials; or simply enjoying your new discoveries. :)

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, June 6, 2013 2:34 AM

I have little to add to this other than that the collection of papers provides a distinctive European perspective on MOOCs. As a consequence (?), the focus is more on the pedagogy than on the economics of higher education (@pbsloep)

The innovation approach in teaching is really praseworthy.

An awesome resource on integrating language learning and technology.  Plenty of sites listed for different target areas.

This is a well organised a very interesting book for the modern language teacher. Just look at the table in the introduction to each chapter and you will find a wealth of ideas for language teaching.

Even though the concept of the Massive Open Online Course has become wildly popular during the last year, empirical research on these initiatives is largely absent. On the one hand, this is not surprising.
