- New digital literacy skills needed for learners and teachers
- Stressing the importance of creativity and openness
- New forms of sharing, communicating and collaborating - ability to network and be part of the shared intelligence
There is a role for formal courses and structures and standard assessments. But teachers ought to challenge themselves to at least try one or two different apporoaches to learning. This session looked at some examples of each.
E-training - drill and practice, interactive tutorials and revision resources
Inquiry-based learning - prominent in the sciences
Resource based learning - open education resources, podcasts, iTunes U, Le Mill, iSpot
Situated learning, virtual exhibitions
Reflective learning - e.g. blogs and e-portfolios, wikis, cohort blogs, collaborative, Twitter for just-in-time learning and for an extended teacher community. Using web 2.0 to connect beyond the course
Personalised learning - open courses for people to participate
Social networks to share, discuss and describe - Facebook teaching groups. Twitter as an extended community of practice
A learning environment needs to be flexible, We still have the barrier of 'old practices'
