Putting the Learning in Blended Learning | Faculty Focus

Putting the Learning in Blended Learning | Faculty Focus | eLearning | Scoop.it
Blending learning involves using a combination of face-to-face interactions and online interactions in the same course. Students still regularly meet in the classroom in a blended course, but the frequency of those meetings is usually decreased. The goal of blended learning is to facilitate greater student learning and could thus fit within a learner-centered paradigm.

The future of learning

The future of learning | eLearning | Scoop.it
The blended learning courses of the future will be those that combine formal and informal learning features. Formal learning will be undertaken mainly for the purpose of gaining accreditation, informal learning will be engaged with for the remainder of the waking hours. Unless we can harness the power, excitement and richness of the informal personalised learning experience and translate it into formalised settings, we will continue to see a widening rift between school and education.

What Makes a Good Learning Game?

"The threshold for how good a learning game should be needs to be defined in relation to context. We need to set stricter demands on some variables for formal education rather than informal. It is important that learning games are focused on the targeted curriculum and the game integrates learning, so users are not sidetracked by the game-part. Motivation can be of less importance in formal education where the competition for attention is often not as harsh as in the informal context. On the other hand in an informal context we may require less in terms of focus and integration, but demand that motivation is comparable to entertainment titles that compete for players' time."
