​Edtech Is Trapped in Ben Bloom’s Basement | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

"The current wave of education technology has been fraught with pedagogically unsound replications of the worst aspects of teaching and learning. Rather than build new opportunities for students to move beyond the most basic building blocks of knowledge, much of Silicon Valley has been content to recreate education’s problematic status quo inside the four corners of a Chromebook, and then have the gall to call that innovation."

12 Steps Toward Immersive Learning

12 Steps Toward Immersive Learning | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

""Immersive learning employs technology to intercept the learner's senses with synthetic signals. The consistency of these signals persuades the perceptual system that it is embedded in the virtual environment. The learner is promoted from an observer of the synthetic world to one of its inhabitants. Immersion promises learners new access to experience.

Is Microlearning the Future of Corporate Training?

Is Microlearning the Future of Corporate Training? | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

"The new generation of employees is increasingly more comfortable learning digitally than they are in the classroom. Current studies support the idea that microlearning could be the solution for executives and their companies. This form of training provides the information in small, manageable chunks whenever the employee needs it the most. It gives your workers real data they can refer back to if they need assistance with performing the task. These small bits of time spent on training can really add up and make a more knowledgeable employee at a substantially lower cost."

Five drivers of change on the Horizon for Education

Five drivers of change on the Horizon for Education | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

Though the future is inherently uncertain, it also rarely arrives unannounced. While it is true that no one can predict the long-term future accurately, we can gain an awareness of what is changing and think critically about what those changes might mean. That awareness allows us generate a range of possibilities of what could happen, what we think should happen and what we might want to avoid, which in turn can help us each take more informed action toward shaping the future

The process of identifying what is changing is often referred to as scanning. As futurists, my colleagues and I continually seek to identify trends, patterns and weak signals of change across a wide variety of topics or domains. Keeping an eye toward changes that are already happening and could potentially happen informs our thinking and provides evidence for the ways in which the future might be different than the present.

How Online Learning and Technology can impact the future | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

Technology and online learning will surely have a huge impact on education in the near future, with numerous universities from around the world developing online learning opportunities. Developing professional and personal skills is a necessity for career improvements and the campus experience is quickly moving away from what we are used to.

Off-campus learning is quickly increasing in importance these days. This gives everyone the possibility of getting the needed degrees to get the desired job, no matter the work that is needed to afford education in the first place. However, many do not understand exactly how online learning and technology are impacting the future.

Imagine a classroom where students are traveling back in time or inside the human body from their desks. With immersive technology, this is possible! Immersive technology is just what the terms dictate – technology that allows you to immerse yourself in it.

Immersive technology includes tools like augmented reality and virtual reality. Both AR and VR are finding new homes in the classroom and are bringing excitement to students. When students use AR to bring their textbook to life on their mobile devices, they are instantly more engaged. When they get to put on a VR headset and travel someplace new, their eyes and minds are opened.

"Education is no longer about a teacher standing up at the front of the classroom, lecturing for hours and delivering an endless stream of material to half-listening, unlearning students. More schools are now incorporating the system of the “flipped classroom,” a revolutionary teaching model that helps teachers spend less time lecturing and more time teaching in a way that will be meaningful. However, it can be time-consuming to flip an entire classroom all at once."
