What is Education 3.0

What is Education 3.0 | Leadership in education | Scoop.it

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.


Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.


Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]

Allan Shaw's insight:

This proposition is quite young and currently being tested through discourse and debate. Aspects of this model have authenticity; some ignore basic but differing practicialities of both tertiary and school education. As a framework for considered reflection, it is worthy and will develop over time.

All that said, the toughest issues confronting school education are not 'what' are the preferred futures but the 'how' to implement.

One possible imminent future...

The idea of web 2.0, and education 3.0 is interesting to me... what will they be called in the future if they are to become the norm?

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia?

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia? | Leadership in education | Scoop.it

Educators are well aware of the shortcomings of relying on crowd-sourced content for authoritative information, yet the fact that Wikipedia continues to reign supreme as a top match in Turnitin suggests that students don't see things the same way. In short, what constitutes "research" for students today has come to mean "Googling."

Allan Shaw's insight:

Gaining access to turnitin's resources is a little clunky but worth it. The webinar is 30 minutes long and worth the time. The related SEER resource is also good.
