Meeker’s 2012 Internet Trends Update

Meeker’s 2012 Internet Trends Update | Evaluating Mobile Learning - Trends, Challenges, Expectations | Scoop.it

Mary Meeker, a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caulfield and Byers, has just published her latest internet trends report entitled, “2012 Internet Trends Year-End Update.” Meeker talks about the world undergoing a re-imagination of nearly everything, particularly with regard to how we consume information. The statistics are US based and it would be good to see a comparison with Australia. What I wonder is how the ability to have everything at our fingertips is influencing the way we think, remember and physically connect with the world.

Learning is increasingly online and mobile, anytime and anywhere. It happens by watching a video or reading an article, then sharing it, then discussing it with peers; it happens by searching, and sorting through the results to discern truth from fiction and then form your own beliefs; it happens when you pull out your mobile device to read the news while you’re waiting for your lunch. That’s the way it happens for us, and that’s the way it increasingly happens for our students.

Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments

Tony Bates: Daniel’s comprehensive review of MOOC developments | Evaluating Mobile Learning - Trends, Challenges, Expectations | Scoop.it

"Daniel, J. (2012) Making sense of MOOCs: Musings in a maze of myth, paradox and possibility Seoul: Korean National Open University

This is the most thorough, comprehensive and balanced overview and analysis of MOOCs that I have read. This is not surprising since Sir John Daniel has had a long and distinguished career in open and distance learning, including being President of the Commonwealth of Learning and Vice-Chancellor of the UK Open University. He is currently a visiting research fellow at the Korean National Open University and an Education Master at DeTao Masters Academy, China. He thus knows of what he speaks."

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, August 17, 2013 5:12 PM

I wholeheartedly agree, this was the first paper I ever read on MOOCs and it was very clear and beautifully presented.  A clear and informed outline of what the impact of MOOCs will be.  Highly recommended.
