Checklist for strong elearning » Making Change. Do you want a checklist you can use to evaluate your learning design?
Here’s my contribution (PDF). I’m calling it a checklist because several people have asked for one, but it’s not really a checklist. Instead of checking a box to say, “Yup, got that covered!” You choose a spot on a spectrum between “action-oriented materials” and “information dump.” There are 14 items to evaluate. This range-finding approach acknowledges that we’re all facing forces that push us toward information dumps. The tool can also be used to clarify what I intend to be the end result of action mapping. Will We Need Teachers Or Algorithms? Editor’s note: This is Part III of a guest post written by legendary Silicon Valley investor Vinod Khosla, the founder of Khosla Ventures.
In Part I, he laid the groundwork by describing how artificial intelligence is a combination of human and computer capabilities In Part II, he discussed how software and mobile technologies can augment and even replace doctors. Now, in Part III, he talks about how technology will sweep through education. In my last post, I argued that software will take over many of the tasks doctors do today. And what of education? We find a very similar story of what the popular – and incredibly funny! I want to comment on what I consider a far greater misuse of talent and training: that of our children/students, mostly here talking about high school education.

Pedagogy First! Here I go thinking that I can quickly finish this task as I’m on catch up mode big time.
I should have known better!! Having watched the video and read the articles, I am left thinking about Issac Asimov’s Foundation series. A lot of what was said makes me think that we have to be very careful where we go with learning. I think we have to be careful to ensure that students are given the problem solving skills to interact with the vast range of information available to us rather than just relying on being able to find out what we want to know when we want to know about it. The ability to have a learning network approach is very important but so is the ability to learn through building and sharing. First the video I usually turn up my nose at theory as I see myself as a more application person, but the content of this video totally hooked me. As time went on and as my study needs changed, I moved to extramural study (management and maths) in the late 1980s to the early 2000s.
