A new methaphor for e-Learning

A new methaphor for e-Learning | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it
I’m convinced that we have to find a new metaphor for e-Learning in order to bring e-Learning to the next level. The old book-metaphor with chapters and pages is well suited for linear courses, but it doesn’t work for more flexible individual approaches of e-Learning. I made it my and easygenerators goal for this year to find and implement a new metaphor in such a way that it is as easy to use as the book metaphor, while offering the learner much more flexibility in finding her way through the course.

At the moment I’m looking at a lot of different examples in order to learn from them. In this post I will share some of them with you.
(((.m.)))

FLIPBOARD
I want to start outside the world of e-Learning with Flipboard, one of the most valuable apps for the Ipad. It uses the metaphor of a newspaper to present blogs, Twitter Facebook and a lot of other stuff.

(((.m.)))

PLANETARY
Another cool application of a metaphor is the music app Planetary. It uses the Galaxy as a metaphor to present your music library. Your artist are start, their albums are planets, and the tracks are presented as moons. ...

(((.m.)))

E-LEARNING METAPHORS
Looking at e-Learning courses I found a lot of metaphors. They either offer the learner a certain context or they will represent the content in a graphical way.

CONTEXT: FLOORPLAN

...

CONTENT: TUBE MAP
Another example I liked a lot was the tube map. It is used to represent the content of a course.

...

LEARNING MAPS
One of the metaphors I’m very interested in are the ‘learning maps’; a geographical map as a representation of e-Learning content.

...

If you have examples or ideas you want to share with me, that would be great. You can contact me through this blog or at Mail@KasperSpiro.com. I will keep you updated on my finding regarding metaphors in future posts.

Mobiltelefone: Die erschreckend schnelle Entwicklung von Handys & Smartphones

Mobiltelefone: Die erschreckend schnelle Entwicklung von Handys & Smartphones | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

Unglaublich, wie schnell sich zuerst Handys und dann Smartphones in unserer Gesellschaft breit gemacht haben und welche bedeutende Rolle “Mobile” heute spielt. Kaum etwas, dass man nicht auch “mobile” machen kann. Kein Wunder also, dass viele klassische Geräteschon (fast) durch Handys überflüssig wurden. Dieses Video zeigt einige interessante Zahlen aber auch erschreckende Statistiken. So haben z.B. schon 70% der Weltbevölkerung ein Mobiltelefon und es ist wahrscheinlicher, dass Kinder ein Handy oder Smartphone besitzen (85%), als ein Buch(73%)!

Donald Clark Plan B: Lectures selling students short: evidence from 'Science'

Donald Clark Plan B: Lectures selling students short: evidence from 'Science' | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

Academics will go to any length to defend the lecture (see twitter feed on my Don't lecture me! talk). No matter how much evidence there is to show that it is poor pedagogic practice, they resist the change. Even worse are those on the technology side in HE who ignore the arguments. They’re like those creationist scientists who have to reconcile empirical evidence with blind faith. In any case, here’s another study (yawn) that proves the obvious – lectures are selling students short.

SOPA / PIPA zeigt die Macht von Wikipedia. 1 Tag Schwarz stimmte Kongress um! | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

Wer gelegentlich Nachrichten liest oder sieht kam in den letzten Tage kaum darum herum etwas von SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) bzw. PIPA (Protect IP Act) zu hören. Einem äusserst umstrittenen Gesetzesentwurf in den USA der unter dem Vorwand urheberrechtlich geschützte Inhalte im Web zu schützen die Macht der Behörden über das Internet ins unermessliche steigert. So können Webseiten komplett blockiert werden, falls schon nur auf urherberrechtlich geschützte Inhalte verlinkt wurde – selbst dann, wenn die Webseite gar nicht in den USA gehostet ist.

Most of what we read about kids and screen time revolves around whether or not it’s good for them. But one aspect of media use with kids that’s worth examining closer is how co-viewing affects their experience. Whether kids are watching TV, creating digital media, reading, searching, or playing video games with parents, siblings or friends, consuming media becomes a different kind of experience than when it’s done alone.

Es war schon mal erstaunlich, wie gleichlautend die etablierten Zeitschriften-Portale das Apple-Event letzten Donnerstag angekündigt hatten, als “Apple will/kann/wird das Schulbuch/den Schulbuchmarkt revolutionieren/neu erfinden” (zeit.de, stern.de, spiegel.de usw.). Nun hat Apple also drei neue Produkte vorgestellt: iBooks 2, iBooks Author und iTunes U, d.h. die Version 2 der iPad-App iBook mit lernspezifischen Erweiterungen, eine (kostenlose) Entwicklungsumgebung zur Erstellung digitaler Bücher und iTunes U als App mit dem Zugriff auf (kostenlose) Kurse vieler Bildungseinrichtungen.

The role of Twitter in Personal Learning Networks

The role of Twitter in Personal Learning Networks | Zukunft des Lernens | Scoop.it

Master Thesis on "The role of Twitter in Personal Learning Networks".

Abstract:

"This qualitative phenomenological study involving in-depth interviews with seven educators in K-12 and higher education examines the role that the microblogging service Twitter plays in the formation and development of Personal Learning Networks (PLN) among educators. A double hermeneutic data analysis shows that Twitter plays a role in the formation and development of PLNs by allowing educators to; engage in consistent and sustained dialogue with their PLN, access the collective knowledge of their PLN, amplify and promote more complex thoughts and ideas to a large audience, and expand their PLN using features unique to Twitter. This research also examines the nature of a PLN and shows that participants believe their PLN extends beyond their Twitter network to encompass both face-to-face and other ICT mediated relationships. Secondary research questions examine how Twitter differs from other social networking tools in mediating relationships within a PLN, what motivates an educator to develop a PLN, how trust is established in a PLN, what the expectations of reciprocity are within a PLN, and what is the nature of informal learning within a PLN."
