Transcript of "4 Critical Factors to Sustain the Development of Technology Enhanced Learning in Educational Organizations "

  1. 1. From Enthusiasm to Strategy: 4 Critical Factors to Sustain the Development of Technology Enhanced Learning in Educational Organizations Hervé Didiot-Cook International Partnerships Manager, International Office Linc 2013 Conference, MIT, 18th June 2013, Cambridge MA
  2. 2. Hervé Didiot-Cook International Partnerships Manager
  3. 3. Overview • • • • • Conclusion: 4 critical factors Outcomes: Paris Descartes & LSE How? RBVF (Analytical framework 1) BTW what is E-learning? Why? ANT (Analytical framework 2)
  4. 4. Conclusion: 4 Critical Factors Leadership Support Collaborative working practices User friendly technology
  5. 5. • Working practices must be collaborative as tech. design & implementation is complex and time consuming, as team work is a real challenge for teachers and academics, • Organization’s leadership must take responsibility: defining the strategy, staff and resource provision, incl. staff consultation to support vision & mission,
  6. 6. • Technology must be user-friendly, piloted and tested by teaching staff, supported by E-Learning specialists, “learning technologists”, • Support is at the core of successful delivery… reciprocal, across the institutions’ organizational / functional boundaries between the different services: Library, IT services, registry, learning tech. and… faculties,
  7. 7. Paris Descartes University (France) • • • • VLE (Moodle) La Médiathèque: Online repository Les Carnets2: Portfolio / Social network Staff training and annual conference: Les Journées Numériques
  8. 8. London School of Economics (UK) • VLE (Moodle) • Student mentoring inner city schools pupils (Wimba voice boards) • Art exhibition on Second Life “Déjà Vu” with Michel Herreria • Digital Storytelling at degree level & in schools thanks to Columbia University colleagues
  9. 9. Resource-Based View of the Firm (RBVF) …focuses on the firm’s resources and capabilities to understand business strategy and provide direction to strategy formulation. Organizational context divided in 3 different levels : resources, capabilities and core capabilities.
  10. 10. Amit & Shoemaker (1993) “Capabilities refer to a firm’s capacity to deploy Resources, usually in combination, using organizational processes, to effect a desired end […] Unlike Resources, Capabilities are based on developing, carrying and exchanging information through the firm’s human capital”.
  11. 11. Andreu & Ciborra (1996) Basic learning processes in the core capabilities formation process
  12. 12. • 3 essential loops transform and translate Resources (ie World leading professors, IT software…) into Core Capabilities (ie MOOCs). • Loop 1: the Routinization Loop is enacted by Working Practices. • Loop 2: the Capability Loop is controlled by Management Actions. • Loop 3: the Strategic Loop ensures that Core Capabilities are in line with the Organization’s values and mission.
  13. 13. TEL, E-Learning is… …not just about technology and pedagogy. Also about schools, contexts, governments, curriculum, control, power, values, aims & objectives… …complexity, interaction, agency and power... • One theory, Actor Network Theory defines the “social” as everything !
  14. 14. Actor Network Theory • Science & Tech Studies (STS) : Latour, Woolgar, Callon & Law… • “people, machines, animals, texts, money, architectures...” = social • Humans define themselves by the social situations they are in, by the social interactions they generate • “People are who they are because they are nothing more than patterned networks of heterogeneous materials”
  15. 15. VLE, MOOCS… as Actor Network • Complex web of connections and interactions : platform, learners, staff, laptops, videos, quizzes… • Is it magic ? Click of a mouse! • Complexity “punctualised” , compressed to ultimate degree of accessibility and simplicity, • VLE, MOOCS = “relatively stable network… one embodied in and performed by a range of durable materials” Law 1992
