2020 Vision: Outlook for online learning in 2014 and way beyond

2020 Vision: Outlook for online learning in 2014 and way beyond | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it
iTunesU, MIT's Opencourseware, OpenLearn, and MOOCs are early prototypes, but content quality in the future will be greatly improved in terms of pedagogical and media design to accommodate online learners.

In 2020, people won’t be talking about online learning as such. It will be so integrated with teaching and learning that it will be like talking today about whether we should use classrooms.

Knowledge Management and E-Learning (9781439837252) - book available now | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

Edited by Jay Liebowitz and Michael S Frank:

 

"The book's first part looks at KM practices in e-learning and covers techniques and methodologies. The second part contains several case studies looking at applications of KM to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., and Europe. The book concludes with a summary of future trends by experts at these organizations. This book ties knowledge management (KM) with e-learning as complementary approaches, highlighting the leading and emerging work being accomplished in this space.

Future trends in KM explored as well!

Ken Keiser's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:08 AM

I will have to look into this book to see whether it meets my needs. My organization has an interest in both aspects of KM and e-learning, for internal purposes as well as our constituents and customers.

Education Futures | Moving beyond Education 2.0

From John Moravec "There’s a lot of talk about moving to “Education 2.0″ –but, what would Education 3.0 look like?

 

Here’s my take [a matrix image] on the Education 1.0 – 3.0 spectrum:" from source: http://www.educationfutures.com

ghbrett's insight:

This is an interesting and prescient take on the direction of Education by John Moravec. I don't really care about the number 1.0 - 2.0 - 3.0. The meat for me are the short descriptions of where he saw education / training going in 2008. The comments are an interesting read as well since they provide a dialog with additional resources as well as questions and rebuttal to John's vision. Thanks to +John Graves for sharing this link with me.

IBM senses change with its annual “5-in-5” list for 2012

IBM senses change with its annual “5-in-5” list for 2012 | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it
"As the year nears its close, IBM, as it has every year since 2006, has pulled out the crystal ball and given us its predictions of five innovations that it believes will impact our lives in the next five years. For this year’s “5-in-5” list, IBM has taken a slightly different approach, with each entry on the list relating to our senses. The company believes cognitive computing whereby computers learn rather than passively relying on programming will be at the core of these innovations, enabling systems that will enhance and augment each of our five senses." - from source http://www.gizmag.com/
ghbrett's insight:

This article is much like the New Media Consortium "Horizon Reports" but focusing on the 5 senses: touch, taste, smell, hearing, and seeing. Each sense is a visual graphic based on an authors collection of projections related to that topic. It is worth taking the time to read, view each image, think on the projections, and then go through them one more time with the intent of connection the 5 projections into one holistic projection.

"HBR Blog Network: The Future of You by Tomas Chamorro


... Economic and technological changes are reshaping the nature of work. Having a great job does not guarantee your career success; your competence no longer depends on what you know; and being an affluent consumer matters less than becoming a sought-after product. Welcome to a new era of work, where your future depends on being a signal in the noisy universe of human capital. In order to achieve this, you will need to master three things: self-branding, entrepreneurship, and hyperconnectivity."

#future #self-branding #entrepreneurship #hyperconnectivity

ghbrett's insight:

This topic usual  focuses on tools, processes, instructional design, elearning and elearning delivery. However, this article is important for you the teacher, mentor, or instructional designer. It is important as presenting an outcome that you should strive for your students or apprentices, collaborators, and yourselves to attain. Especially in these rapidly challenging and changes times of Desing and Service oriented work ecologies. Brief, but to the point, it is recommended reading.

Future Trends in Technology and Education

Future Trends in Technology and Education | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Future Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report. It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies. Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.

 

Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines. As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact. FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance."

Bryan Alexander is not only one of the leading Thought Leaders of Technology for Education, Training, and Research; he is one of the most scholarly, well grounded, sharing people I know. His work is based on fact with a dab of opinion from others as well as himself. His eyes, ears, and haptic senses are sensitive to opportunities and trends. Bryan's voice asks the difficult but important questions. Then his synthesis of this input is shared openly with us. He is an essential part of the future. That is why you should quickly take advantage of his offer to share his new monthly report "Future Trends in Technology and Education."

I agree with George. Follow this if you are interested in the topic.

Ken Morrison's curator insight, April 8, 2013 7:54 AM

20% of Earth top 1000 corporations will incorporate some aspect of gamification into their marketing or product design by 2015.  What does that mean for you and the future workers who you are raising?

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, April 8, 2013 8:50 AM

Everything Bad Is Good
Gabe Zichermann, author of Gamification by Design, debunks the idea that games are "bad" for kids. Good companion to Everything Bad Is Good For you by Steven Johnson.


"Kids have to have an extraordinary multi-tasking skill," says Gabe with great research examples. Gabe links the Flyn Effect, the idea that people are getting smarter, to video games. 


The argument Zihermann makes for children is applicable to business as well. Engagment beats non-engagment and games create engagement. 

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, April 9, 2013 7:11 AM
Future workers are so comfortable with game constructs to NOT use them is crazy.

20 Game-Changing Technology Trends That Will Create Both Disruption and Opportunity on a Global Level | Flash Foresights from Daniel Burrus | Big Think

20 Game-Changing Technology Trends That Will Create Both Disruption and Opportunity on a Global Level | Flash Foresights from Daniel Burrus | Big Think | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it
"No matter what industry you’re in, your company can’t survive without technology. And these days, even non-technical employees know that technology goes way beyond desktop computers and networks. From smart phones and tablet computers to mobile apps and cloud-based technology, there’s a plethora of technological advancements to not only keep track of, but also to profit from. To stay competitive, your organization needs to anticipate the most significant technology trends that are shaping your business and then develop innovative ways to use them to your advantage, both inside and outside of your organization. Remember, if it can be done, it will be done. If you don’t use these technologies to create a competitive advantage, someone else will." - from source: http://bigthink.com/
ghbrett's insight:

NOTE: This article provides a list of 20 emerging or evolving technology trends that will become more available in the next 5 years. Most of these are already being adopted by research, teaching, learning, and training organizations. What I liked about the article is the last paragraph where the author states in effect, this is just the tip of the iceberg. The author says this is only a few and there are other trends that will appear on the radar during the coming five years as well. -- ghbrett
