Responsive Open Learning Environments - Springer | Educational Technology Backlash and Concerns | Scoop.it

This book presents the outcomes of four years of educational research in the EU-supported project called ROLE (Responsive Online Learning Environments). ROLE technology is centered around the concept of self-regulated learning that creates responsible learners, who are capable of critical thinking and able to plan their own learning processes.  ROLE allows learners to independently search for appropriate learning resources and then reflect on their own learning process and progress.

Audrey's curator insight, October 18, 2014 7:49 AM

It is  much easier to access paper material or material that you can create yourself without the complications of machine equipment, which can be inaccessible. 

 

An important part of learning and using your brain is the ability to be flexible. It will take time to make e text books flexible enough for young people to use them creatively.
