The future of online learning

diane gusa's insight:

The development of new technology continues to have an impact on learning. While on the one hand, new technology allows schools and instructors to offer learning in new ways, educators nonetheless continue to face limitations imposed by technology, and sometimes the lack of technology. While access to the internet has increased greatly over the last decade, some schools continue to experience bandwidth shortages and most schools do not have enough computers for every student. Yet, this is changing, and the pace of this change will continue to accelerate.

School the way it is done is long out-dated and it is not a matter of reform, but moving beyond what School is and transforming it.

Connective_Knowledge-19May2012.pdf

diane gusa's insight:

The scope of my work covers three major domains, knowledge, learning and community. Each of these represents an aspect of network theory: the first, examining the cognitive properties of networks, the second, looking at how networks learn, and the third, tracing the properties of effective networks. These also represent the processes of learning, inference and discovery in society writ large

DigitalTechnologySafeAndResponsibleUseInSchs.pdf

diane gusa's insight:

In general, preventative approaches that rely on technical or other protections simply do not work. These methods have a role but must be balanced with strategies that promote: • development of skills and knowledge for safe and responsible use of digital technology • opportunities for students to be involved in decisions about the management of digital technology at the school • development of a pro-social culture of digital technology use, and • cooperation of the whole community in preventing and responding to incidents. The ultimate goal is to ensure the online safety of all students

Why TEAL works - The Tech

In the years leading up to 2000, the MIT Physics Department realized it had a problem. Despite great lecturers such as Walter Lewin, attendance at physics lectures fell 40 percent by the end of the term. In addition, an average of 10 percent of students failed 8.01 (Mechanics) and 14 percent of students failed 8.02 (Electricity and Magnetism). So MIT did what it does best: It solved the problem.
diane gusa's insight:

technology-enabled active learning

First, it is the goal of TEAL instructors to solve problems that combine various methods and multiple concepts as opposed to simply memorizing concepts. Students are also able to ask questions during the solution, which, in practice, rarely happens during lectures. Furthermore, they are periodically given problems that they must work together as a table and solve. Fridays are typically devoted entirely to such group problem solving.

The second major difference is the clicker questions, where a multiple-choice question testing the understanding of a concept is displayed on the projector. T
