E-learning

In the previous parts to Online Learning and Higher Education, a series of six short articles, we pondered the potential impact of digital technologies on education, the questions raised for those contemplating the design of an eLearning course and how traditional approaches and methodologies can inform the application of emerging technologies. This week, we look at traditional forms of delivery and how we are still bound to established modes.

Digi4Adults project (Erasmus+ KA2 2015-2017) encourages teachers as peers to work together in sharing and developing their skills in the application of digital tools. In our EPALE blog, we collect Content and Digital Competence Integrated Learning CDCIL methods as small case studies, caselets, and invite you all to join us to apply them in new contexts, and moreover, to produce your own caselets with us!

Regular teacher training is not always enough to get us all on board in applying digital tools in teaching and training. Peer-teacher model can do the trick applied as such or as a way of complementing regular staff training. Peer-teacher model introduced by Digi4Adults project (Erasmus+ KA2 2015-2017) encourages teachers to share their everyday findings and experiences on applying digital tools in their teaching.

The Principles of Adult Learning. We’ve all heard of them … but what are they, really? They’re a generally agreed upon set of principles and best practices that we apply to building training for adult learners. So let’s take a closer look at these principles and some practical tips for applying them to your next e-learning course.

Experience

Adults have a rich history with many past experiences they can draw upon, which helps them in their learning endeavors.

How to apply this principle to e-learning?

As part of a series of short articles on 'Online Learning and Higher Education' we considered the possibility that we might have got at least some of our implementation strategy for eLearning wrong and, more worryingly, are continuing to make the same mistakes. This week, we look at the beginnings of the “unbundling” of education.

Education and the mechanics of how it is delivered are strange and occasionally uneasy bedfellows. Additionally, the introduction of new technologies is challenging those of us who work in education to re-examine our assumptions about how we engage with our students, present our materials and deliver our courses.

Český Google se zaměří na posilování digitální gramotnosti široké veřejnosti. Navazuje tím na celoevropský vzdělávací program, který prezident Googlu Matt Brittin představil v Bruselu. K vytvoření projektu využila společnost znalosti a dovednosti svých odborníků i zkušenosti pedagogů.

After a MOOC-based, specific training, participants in the educational, EU-funded ECO project have turned into e-teachers: they designed, developed and now launching their own MOOCs. Among the first four courses ready to open up on Tuesday, one may prove essential for a holiday any Spanish-speaking country. Would you like to try?

Když jsem studoval na střední a vysoké škole, používali ti lepší učitelé meotar, papírový či plastový model sluneční soustavy, umělého kostlivce nebo video zařízení. Mladší generace si pamatují na video projektor nebo pseudo 3D grafiku. Málokdo si uměl představit, že jednou bude v rámci výuky možné vizualizovat v podstatě kterékoli prostředí do 3D modelu a zasazovat do něj různé objekty. Kdyby mi tuhle hračku jako klukovi na střední škole nějaký učitel ukázal, asi by se v mých očích stal bohem.

Každý, kdo někdy nakupoval v hypermarketu nebo kterémkoli obchodě, má zkušenost s čárovými kódy. Pokladní systémy snad již ani jinak neumí fungovat, ale nalézt čárové kódy můžeme i na každé knize hned u vypsaného ISBN. Princip jejich činnosti je relativně jednoduchý a je založený na optickém snímání. Detektory v obchodních domech užívají obvykle červené světlo, což je dáno historickým vývojem a cenou.

This week we take a broader look and explore how traditional approaches and methodologies can inform the application of emerging technologies. All too often, it has been assumed that attendance based provision is superior, per se, and that any alternative vehicle is inherently inferior. Online provision differs from attendance based learning and we should embrace these differences; the key is to approach each form of provision from the point of view of the learner.

Your school with you wherever you want and whenever you can.

Your school with you wherever you want and whenever you can.

We are a Upper Secondary School which deliveries evening courses for adults to get the high-school diploma (formal learning) in the following subjects: business administration, tourism, social and health services. The students, who are generally working people, meet difficulties in attending the lessons and the drop-out rate in such courses is rather high. So we are working on a project idea focused on a e-learning pathway which is tailor-made according to work-life balance needs.

Serdecznie zapraszamy do wzięcia udziału on-line w międzynarodowej konferencji "E-Learning Fusion" o nowych trendach w e-learningu, która odbędzie się w Warszawie 16 marca bieżącego roku.
