6 Types of Blended Learning Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity. That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning. 6 Types of Blended Learning Face-to-face DriverRotationFlexOnline LabSelf-BlendOnline Driver The following infographic takes a different approach to the concept, labeling it “Disruptive,” and even offering an interesting matrix.

Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age December 12, 2004 George Siemens Update (April 5, 2005): I've added a website to explore this concept at www.connectivism.ca Coursera Jumps the Shark Remember when Coursera – the world’s largest purveyor of Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) – was going to disrupt higher education, and put hundreds if not thousands of public institutions out of business ? I know it’s hard to cast your mind back all of eighteen months, but try. Actually don’t.
Online social networks as formal learning environments: Learner experiences and activities George Veletsianos and Cesar C. Navarrete University of Texas at Austin, USA Abstract While the potential of social networking sites to contribute to educational endeavors is highlighted by researchers and practitioners alike, empirical evidence on the use of such sites for formal online learning is scant. To fill this gap in the literature, we present a case study of learners’ perspectives and experiences in an online course taught using the Elgg online social network.

Activité 7.2 - peeragpgy It is tempting to bring a list of technologies out as a glorious cookbook. We need a 1/2 cup of group writing tools, 2 tsp. of social network elements, a thick slice of social bookmarking, and some sugar, then put it in the oven for 1 hour for 350 degrees. We have created a broad features/functions list for Handbook readers to reflect upon and consider. The joy of this list is that you can consider alternatives for the way you communicate and work while you are planning the project, or can add in new elements to solve communications gaps or create new tools. However, too many tools spoil the broth. In the writing of this Handbook, we found that out firsthand.
The Flipped Classroom Will Redefine the Role of Educators AUDIO | The Flipped Classroom Will Redefine the Role of Educators Click here to download The EvoLLLution’s interview with Eric Mazur As flipped classrooms become more prevalent in the next 10 years, the role of the instructor will transform into one of a “guide on the side” rather than a “sage on the stage.” The following interview is with Eric Mazur, area dean of Applied Physics at Harvard University and the University’s Balkanski professor of physics and applied physics. Since introducing the flipped model to his classroom, Mazur has seen a great response from his students, both in their attitudes and in their grades. In this interview, Mazur explains the benefits of this approach, and how it will redefine the role of postsecondary educators in 10 years’ time.
Jonathan Haber: A MOOC Backlash? "Faculty Backlash Grows Against Online Partnerships" announces the Chronicle of Higher Education (in a section that includes several stories on schools slowing down or halting some aspect of their involvement with MOOC-related projects). Tales of MOOC skeptics and low completion rates dot the Inside Higher Ed technology pages. And stories of MOOCs in the New York Times seem to be focusing less on Friedmanian enthusiasm and more on the wary glances faculties are giving the new technology. Last summer, when I was creating a course on critical thinking (tied to the 2012 Presidential election), I did segments on Media Literacy and Information Literacy, which ended with an analysis of a specific issue that taught me to avoid confusing momentum a particular storyline was getting in the news with an actual trend. For, as everyone involved with them will tell you, MOOCs are a work in progress -- usually referred to as an "experiment."
