and this will definitely trickle down to K-12...online learning now is substantially an add-on, rather than the main delivery system.  As more and more employees are able to choose virtual jobs, this option becomes so much more realistic.

Open University trends in Learning 2016 report identifies seven key trends to watch out for

Open University trends in Learning 2016 report identifies seven key trends to watch out for | ssAcademic | Scoop.it

Today (11 May) The Open University (OU) launches its annual Trends in Learning report at the CIPD Learning and Development Show at London Olympia. The report examines how the learning experience is being influenced by rapidly advancing technology, changing the way people engage with education. It also looks at how these developments can be capitalised on, to maximise the effectiveness of learning delivery in the workplace.

 

Based on original research from the OU’s Institute of Educational Technology (IET), Trends in Learning 2016 examines how learning can be enhanced through technology, opening up a wealth of new opportunities to engage with learners – something that is having a huge impact on the learning and development (L&D) landscape. It reasons that learning delivery could become more effective, more efficient and more responsive to the changing needs of people and organisations if these trends were embraced.

 

The report identifies seven key learning trends (listed below) and explores their implications for workplace L&D, in terms of learning design, delivery and measurement:

Why share this here? Well, K-20 educators are preparing their kids for their working lives. The more educators think about what is and could be important for kids to know and be able to do, the better they can design lessons, activities, tasks, and projects that help students develop and refine the appropriate knowledge, skills, and dispositions.

There are nearly 700 million internet users in China, and they don’t let their connections go to waste. The country is a downloading, WeChatting, ecommercing powerhouse, and it has the statistics to prove it.

 

We sorted through the numbers put out by some of China’s biggest internet companies, and brought them down to scale. This is an internet minute in China. The country does in 60 seconds what some would only do over a day, week, or more. Not too shabby....

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 8, 8:42 AM
Niche-specific content is usually not readily available through regular generic search engines. One example is the academic and scholarly content. While running a search query about an academic topic through a generic search engine such as Google would probably render fairly decent results, it, however, usually takes digging into so much fluff before finally landing on relevant results. This is where having access to topic-specific search engines comes in handy. Such search engines do not only provide specific content tailored to the topic under study but their content is more likely to be reliable and authoritative. To this end, we have compiled this list of excellent academic search engines that teachers, student researchers and academics can use to quickly locate and access scholarly works and publications. We have only included what we believe are the most relevant and popular titles out there.

Actually, people have different strategies to learn or study, one of them is Personal Learning Networks. Thanks to the technology, this is strategy is easier and useful since we can study with other people through forums, debates, social Medias, etc… E-learning has some advantages such as no geographical barriers, meet new people, cultures, ideas and thoughts also collaboration is more evident in learning networks than in traditional networks. Some tips to make your e-learning more successful is being active in the process, understanding that contribute with information is important as receive all that information and being clear about the guidelines.

Evaluating Websites as Information Sources | ssAcademic | Scoop.it
Studies suggest that many U.S. students are too trusting of information found on the internet and rarely evaluate the credibility of a website’s information. For example, a survey found that only 4 percent of middle school students reported checking the accuracy of information found on the web at school, and even fewer did so at home (New Literacies Research Team & Internet Reading Research Group, 2006).
