Surpassing Shanghai: An Agenda for American Education Built on the World's Leading Systems by Marc S. Review of New Fordham Digital Learning Papers. Teachers in the Age of Digital Instruction and School Finance in the Digital-Learning Era, two new working papers in the Fordham Institute’s series on digital learning, are welcome additions to the often narrow debates around online learning.
“Teachers,” written by Public Impact’s Bryan and Emily Hassel, opens with an important and refreshing perspective: “that digital education needs excellent teachers and that the teaching profession needs digital education.” Rather than replacing teachers, the authors see digital learning as transforming teaching — both by offering tools for traditional classroom teachers and by enabling entirely new ways of teaching. Often missing from conversations around technology, the paper outlines the varied roles that teachers play, including helping with motivation, social and emotional support, and stretching critical thinking and analytical skills.

In 2005, Professors Anderson and McCormick wrote A Common Framework for E-learning Quality and Ten Pedagogic Principles of E-Learning, describing an approach to the development of effective e-learning programs.
According to Professors Anderson and McCormick, the Ten Principles may help designers to construct pedagogically sound e-learning materials and related activities. The principles may also help teachers to choose resources; design teaching and learning activities based on those resources; and support such activities while they take place. Explore the Ten Pedagogic Principles of E-Learning as defined by Anderson and McCormick and see how they are applied through the itslearning platform. Anderson and McCormick state that there is an implicit assumption in their approach that the more of the ten principles are embodied, the better the quality of the pedagogy; and the fewer embodied principles, the lower the quality.
Innovation and Quality in e-Learning:a European Perspective. Is our Education System in Crisis? October 18, 2011 by jennymackness Tony Bates – gave us an interesting presentation on Sunday evening – Managing Technology to Transform Teaching – – which many of us who work in HE as teachers or as managers of technology could relate to.
Tony asked us a lot of questions and provided us with access to his recent book, where even more questions are raised. But a key question in his presentation was: “Can universities or colleges change from within, or do we need new institutions for 21st century learning?” Three of my ChangeMooc colleagues (see below) have responded to this on their blogs (and maybe others too that I haven’t yet become aware of) Компетенции когнитивного образования.

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning. The very first thing I want to do is to counter the disclaimer that frightened me as this session opened, it was very loud, and said all kinds of things about how this was all private and cannot be shared.

[All Presentations] The Role of Educator in a Networked World November 9, 2011 Seminar presentation delivered to for EC&I 831: Social Media & Open Education, Alec Couros, Online, via Elluminate.
In this presentation I revisit the 'role of the educator' discussion I offered last year for the same course, offering a point of view stressing a new approach to learning, and drawing out the consequences of that in a series of new roles for educators, leading to the conclusion that the role of the educator itself will be unbundled in the world of online learning.

" It made me smile because I could see that I was on a newer plane -- and because I know there are teachers all over the country that wish they could have this sign blinking in their room at all times.
