Starting with a brain-based illustration on the chart,  is a good sign for this sort of learning theory.  ~  D

I am very  interested in this whole constructivism thing and find this visual chart helpful

Maureen Greenbaum's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:15 AM

A picture is worth 1,000 words - plenty of words on this Inforgrapic but organized in a way to make understanding (and hopefully appling)  these learning theories to good pedagogy

State of the MOOC 2016: A Year of Massive Landscape Change For Massive Open Online Courses

State of the MOOC 2016: A Year of Massive Landscape Change For Massive Open Online Courses | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it
Going on eight years since MOOCs first entered the scene, massive open online courses have gone from cameras at the back of U.S. college classrooms to several full-fledged ecosystems in the global industry of online learning. Touted initially by creators for growing opportunities in the verticals of Distance Education, Lifelong Learning, Continuing Education, and making a college education both free and accessible, MOOCs have also been criticized heavily by established academics for sanctioning edutainment, teaching methods that are unprofessional, as well as the corporatization of higher education.

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it

Maha Bali writes: "We often hear people talk about the importance of digital knowledge for 21st-century learners. Unfortunately, many focus on skills rather than literacies. Digital skills focus on what and how. Digital literacy focuses on why, when, who, and for whom."

Natasha Georgiou's curator insight, March 27, 12:00 AM

Maha Bali's article is worth sharing widely with anyone who needs to be nudged ever so gently into the 21st century of education. (We're 16% through it, folks!) Bali addresses the need to teach about digital skills and literacy in an authentic context, not a vacuum, and gives many concrete examples for doing that. 

 

I recently did a lesson on blogging with a 6th grade class. We looked at several tween and teen blogs, then reviewed good digital citizenship practices emphasizing student safety and copyright. Finally, each student created a blog on Blogger. Will they make mistakes? Probably. (When I specifically told them to keep it school appropriate, with nothing in the blog they wouldn't be allowed to do at school, and one student immediately started searching for "Call of Duty 3" images!) Will we all learn something from this? Absolutely.

The Self-Determination Theory In Online Training: A Practical Guide

The Self-Determination Theory In Online Training: A Practical Guide | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it
The Self-Determination Theory was introduced by psychologists Edward Deci and Richard Ryan, who suggested that human motivation is based on a variety of different emotional needs and internal/external influences. Essentially, the theory focuses on how much an individual’s actions, choices, and behavior are governed by self-motivation and determination. eLearning professionals can use this ideology not only to identify what motivates corporate learners, but also how they can tap into that motivation when creating online training courses. The ultimate goal is to encourage corporate learners to be self-determined, so that they have the focus and dedication it takes to achieve success on their own terms.

Building an effective learning environment | Tony Bates | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it

One premise behind building an effective learning environment is that it is inbuilt in humans to learn. If we had not been reasonably good at learning, we would have been killed off early in the earth’s history by faster, bigger and more ferocious animals. The ability not only to learn, but to learn in abstract and conscious ways, is therefore part of human nature.

US professors aren’t getting any more accepting of online learning—but students definitely are | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it
Online education comes with plenty of drawbacks. The cons tend to amplify when schools try to integrate e-learning into a broader bricks-and-mortar college experience: Students are said to get bored, learn less, or absorb only a portion of the intellectual atmosphere they'd find in physical classrooms. Despite all that, online learning as part of university programs—also known as distance learning—has managed to...

Continental Education Strategy for Africa 2016-2025 | African Union

"Africa is ushering into an era that most observers and pundits are predicting will determine its destiny as the continent of the future. But to fulfill this promised bright future, the continent has to come to terms with its education and training systems that are yet to fully shed the weight of its colonial legacy and its own tribulations as a relatively new political and economic entity and player in the world arena. In the bid to “create” a new African citizen who will be an effective change agent for the continent’s sustainable development as envisioned by the AU and its 2063 Agenda, the African Union Commission has developed an Africa comprehensive ten-year continental education strategy (CES)."

Our OER Mythbusting guide launches today | Open Educational Policy for Europe

Our OER Mythbusting guide launches today | Open Educational Policy for Europe | Online & mobile learning in developing countries | Scoop.it
Anyone conducting advocacy and outreach work for Open Educational Resources naturally hears a lot of criticism of openness. While some of it is valid, much is based on lack of knowledge, unfounded fears and misconceptions or even misrepresentations of the issue. After hearing them one time too many, we decided to create an „OER mythbusting guide”, which collects the most popular myths, together with ways of „busting” them.

PDFWe are launching the Open Educational Resources mythbusting guide today, both as an online resource and a PDF guide (which can also be printed). The site is divided into two parts – a mythbusting guide and a quick introduction to OER. Both will help you find fast, simple and useful answers to myths, statements and unsupported claims about how Open Educational Resources (OER).

The guide has been written by Kamil Śliwowski (CC Poland) and Karolina Grodecka (Coalition for Open Education, Poland) and is based on results of a series of mythbusting workshops conducted over the course of the last year and a half, as well as a survey among OER advocates.
