My academic year has come to an end and it is time for reflections and professional development. As I take the opportunity to do pd, reflect on the past teaching year and what I would like to do better in the next semester, I also ask what our role is today as educators in this fast paced changing world. Like many others, I don't know what learners will be required to do in the year 2021 and even less in 2031. I don't know what the world will be like then nor what challenges todays learners will have to deal with. I may have notions and beliefs about learning but cannot predict the future of job markets. I do, however, have certainties of what I do today when I see my students succeed, when their confidence as learners blossoms throughout the semester.

Jun 20th, 2011 Have you ever found an especially fabulous blog post, and bookmarked it? Yes, of course you have.

Soon after Grace, my daughter, was born earlier this year I was invited to Australia to keynote the Association of Independent Schools, New South Wales ICT Managers’ Conference . At the time, Grace was having some problems with lactose intolerance and so I couldn’t commit to being the other side of the world. The organisers still wanted me to present and so I produced the above ‘TELL Talk’ on along with giving a 50-minute workshop on the same subject. It felt a bit strange getting dressed to present at 2am in the morning to co-ordinate with their schedule but the technology worked well and the session seemed to be well-received. watch the Zipcast of my presentation here

The most valuable aspect of MOOCs is that the large number of learners enables the formation of sub-networks based on interested, geography, language, or some other attribute that draws individuals together. With 20 students in a class, limited options exist for forming sub-networks. When you have 5,000 students, new configurations are possible. The “new pedagogical models” (A Silicon Valley term meaning: we didn’t read the literature and still don’t realize that these findings are two, three, or more decades old) being discovered by MOOC providers supports what most academics and experienced teachers know about learning: it’s a social, active, and participatory process. The current MOOC providers have adopted a regressive pedagogy: small scale learning chunks reminiscent of the the heady days of cognitivism and military training.
