Donald Clark Plan B: Prensky: game on - digital natives, immigrants and aliens

Donald Clark Plan B: Prensky: game on - digital natives, immigrants and aliens | gamyfication | Scoop.it

"Some argue that games may turn out a generation with better IQs, better skills, more attuned to technology with a more enlightened learner-centric attitude towards learning than any previous generation. Many also argue that we should harness the strength of games, while setting their weaknesses to the side. In any case Prensky was a pioneer and tireless campaigner for games in learning."

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences | gamyfication | Scoop.it

"The problem is that the decision makers often don’t have the marketing skills to differentiate between different addressable audiences. External adult learners may not want a long-winded, over-engineered, six to ten week course on anything. Life’s too short. Yet academics are used to producing courses of this semester length. What many may want are mini MOOCs. They may want them to be asynchronous starting and ending when convenient for them."

Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.

Donald Clark Plan B: Sperling: most important man you’ve maybe never heard of in online learning

Donald Clark Plan B: Sperling: most important man you’ve maybe never heard of in online learning | gamyfication | Scoop.it

"Sperling is a provocateur, constantly at odds with the establishment views on education and other topics but has always been committed to students from poor backgrounds. [...] unorthodox approach to education and business has broken the mould and shown that online education works on scale for adults who won’t or can’t conform to traditional timetables and courses. As one of the most successful examples of online learning on the planet Sperling is a true innovator in online learning."

Donald Clark Plan B: MOOCs: taxonomy of 8 types of MOOC | gamyfication | Scoop.it

"What’s important here is that we see MOOCs as informing the debate around learning to get over the obvious problems of relevance, access and cost. This is by no means a definitive taxonomy but it’s a start. I’d really appreciate any comments, critiques or new categories."
