Eric Paul Meredith, MS, RD, CPT's curator insight, March 8, 2014 6:05 PM

This was a great article about the shift from education to learning.  There were three tenets of connected learning that the author discussed.  The three facets of connected learning are as follows:

 

1) A shift from education to learning. Education is what institutions do, learning is what people do. Digital media enable learning anywhere, anytime; formal learning must also be mobile and just-in-time.

 

2) A shift from consumption of information to participatory learning. Learning happens best when it is rich in social connections, especially when it is peer-based and organized around learners’ interests, enabling them to create as well as consume information.

 

3) A shift from institutions to networks. In the digital age, the fundamental operating and delivery systems are networks, not institutions such as schools, which are one node of many on a young person’s network of learning opportunities. People learn across institutions, so an entire learning network must be supported.

 

In a digital world, every individual could establish a learning network based on their interests and academic pursuits.  Peers, institutions, and the community could join the individual's network and contribute to their learning.

 

These networks would enable a person to collaborate with like minded peers who share the same interests.  Instead of just one institution participating in a student's education, multiple informal and formal entities can provide opportunities to learn in cost effective ways.  Lastly, new media also provides people with the opportunity to demonstrate learning by creating work to share with instructors and members of the networking community.

The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2014 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 2014 1:40 PM

Don't be afraid of social media when you can learn how to use it in your classroom.  This reasource is a great find for educators that may want to use social media but just do not know where to incorporate it.
