E-Learning in Education: Andragogy and constructivism Andragogy aligns with constructivism as a theory and a method employing new techniques that engage adult students in online learning. The constructivist paradigm is suited to the adult learner who has a cabinet-full of information and experience that he brings to the table of learning.

They have “learned” their lessons of the younger years, when “knowing meant being able to remember and repeat.” (Brown, 2005).

Social Media in Social Work Education - Social Work - Browse & Buy "The next generation of social services will rely on a backbone of new technology and confident, IT-savvy social care and health specialists." … I smiled as I read through my undergraduate dissertation this week.

How To Create A Test That Grades Itself Using Google Forms How To Create Self Grading Assessments With Google Forms Google Forms isn’t the first thing you think of when you think of assessment. It’s not especially elegant, it won’t wow students, and the learning curve isn’t as mild as it might be.

How to measure the effectiveness of professional development activities This post on measurement on the effectiveness of professional development attracts my attention. Stephen commented in his OLDaily: And the good point he make is that the effectiveness (if you want to call it that) of a learning event isn’t measurable at the time of the event – you have to wait for the cycles to complete.
