Inge de Waard keynote on using MOOC in high school / secondary school

This keynote was given at ITSligo, Ireland, to highlight a project which integrates existing MOOC in k12 classrooms to increase digital skills and lifelong learning capacities for 16 - 17 year old students. This project uses a three step approach allowing young students to learn what MOOCs are, which platforms exist, and how to interact with others.

Dossier : Microlearning : faut-il faire court pour mieux apprendre ? | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Le microlearning revient régulièrement dans les bouches des spécialistes car il répond à des préoccupations fortes qui se sont amplifiées avec l'arrivée du numérique dans nos usages. Mais les interrogations quant à son utilisation demeurent et il n'y a pas consensus quant à la forme qu'il doit prendre. Sans doute est-ce pour le mieux ? Dans un monde où les façons et les moyens d'apprendre diffèrent d'individu en individu, et où le temps manque, l'adaptabilité des formations aux besoins et impératifs des employés est la clé...

Online Learning: Why Libraries Could Be the Key to MOOCs’ Success | Easy MOOC | Scoop.it

Our overarching goal is to develop and evaluate methods for learning analytics to detect and study collaborative learning processes. For this paper, we focus on how to link multiple online identities of learners and their contributions across several social media platforms in order to study their learning behaviours in open online environments....

... Our findings reveal that many participants could relate to and welcomed the anti-authoritarian, anti-hierarchical characteristics of the rhizome, but that knowledge and understanding of Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptual principles of the rhizome was more difficult. Lack of engagement with theory and lack of appreciation of the incompleteness and complexities of the rhizome metaphor can result in negative consequences, such as imbalances in power relations and increased vulnerability for some learners.
