A framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts | Wang | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The research question that drives this theoretical research is, what are the characteristics and principles of interaction in a complex connectivist learning process? Can they be clearly revealed when viewed from a systematic view focused on interaction? This article provides a systematic interaction framework for connectivist learning, which reveals the characteristics and principles of learners’ interactions so as to guide interaction design and evaluation in connectivist learning designs and implementations.

Five Myths about MOOCs (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"MOOCs face a storm of opposition that underestimates their challenge to traditional education. Given their popularity, why are there so many myths about MOOCsfloating around? Debunking the myths about MOOCs leaves us free to challenge our assumptions — and our imaginative possibilities — by questioning the seeming inevitability of educational orthodoxy."

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials

Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Help Define the Future of Badge Initiative

 

There is enormous potential for badge initiatives to fundamentally improve the “exchange” of value between educational institutions, learners, and employers. But how is this “currency” defined? Who validates the value of badges? Who defines relevant sets of competencies, and for what purposes? To advance the answers to these and many other questions, we pulled together a team of experts from Mozilla, Blackboard, WCET, and Sage Road Solutions, as well as academic, governmental, civic, and corporate thought leaders, to provide a MOOC that fosters and strengthens emerging badge initiatives: “Badges: New Currency for Professional Credentials.” 

 

This free and open MOOC is designed to help teams of people define their own badge initiatives, appropriate to their own contexts, and work through a series of challenges leading to concrete implementation plans. With this scaffolded learning experience, we aspire to broaden the awareness of the potential of badges, and more importantly, to facilitate the implementation of sustainable badge frameworks that offer concrete structures for validated badge “currency” exchange among educational institutions, learners, and employers.

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

terrymc's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

 

Dr. David Gentile's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:40 AM

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?
