    e-Infrastructures for e-Learning e-Infrastructures for e-Learning Presentation Transcript

    • 1st International BELIEF II – 6CHOICE Symposium on Distance Learning Delhi, 28–29 January 2009 The Dawn of Distance Learning on e-Infrastructures or Distance Learning 2.0 Wolfgang Gentzsch The DEISA Project Open Grid Forum e-School e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Content • The Challenge: world-wide data and knowledge explosion • The Challenge: we need more scientists and engineers, but students are not interested • The Challenge: schools and teachers are not prepared • The Solution: new ways of teaching and learning for our digital natives • The Technology: e-Infrastructures for enriched learning • The Didactics: working with didactic and pedagogic experts • The Prototype: e-School, interactive science laboratory, the digital sand-box for life-long learning e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Data Challenges Today “The amount of scientific data is doubling every year, and mining, analysis, knowledge and reproduction is becoming very complex.” A.Szalay & J.Gray: Science in an exponential world. In: Nature, Vol 440, 23 March 2006. This trend is likely to continue: - Moore, Gilder, Metcalf Laws continue - In 3-5 years: 10-fold more processing, . storage, and also network bandwidth - This will result in 10 times more data Copy: Aple iPod Ad from - Science is scaling up (e.g. LHC) and Sueddeutsche Magazine June 2 2006 . scaling out (commodity technologies) e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Our knowledge doubles every 12 months ! Genbank doubles every 12 months But Education doesn’t keep pace !!! e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Cyberinfrastructure Vision for the 21st Century Discovery New cultural community that supports peer collaboration and new modes of education, based upon - broad and open access to leadership computing; - data and information resources; - online instruments and observatories; and - visualization and collaboration services. CI enables distributed knowledge communities that collaborate and communicate across disciplines, distances and cultures. Research and education communities beyond traditional brick-and- mortar facilities, becoming virtual organizations that transcend geographic and institutional boundaries. Dr. Arden L. Bement, Jr. Director of the National Science Foundation, in March 2007 e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Emerging IT is reshaping education Economic & technological shifts change education dramatically IT is becoming the foundation of knowledge and skills Changes in the characteristics and behaviors of learners “Competitive advantage for a region is now built on the skills of its workforce as opposed to its geography, trade laws, patents, and natural resources.” “The workers of the 21st century must have skills in science, math, and information technologies, creativity, and the ability to solve complex problems.” C.Dede, S.Corte, R.Nelson, G.Valdes, D.Ward, 2005 Transforming Learning for the 21st Century: An Economic Imperative “States must foster, support, and enhance online learning for all students and develop 21st century citizens with the capacity for lifelong learning and productivity! John Watson et all, 2005 Keeping Pace with K-12 Online Learning e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Today’s Education Challenges Information & knowledge is growing exponentially Teaching methods and materials do not keep pace Learning today is too passive and static, life is highly active and dynamic I’ve tried to tell Bill Students become de-motivated and lack creativity he’s overloading himself with too e-Learning environments are scratching the surface much information We need 100Ks of We have to focus new jobs in science on K-12 students and engineering and their teachers e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • However: Many Governments Cut Education Budgets EDU CAT ION Copy from Mittelbayerische “Broaden the foundation? Much too expensive!” Newspaper June3 2006 e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • On the other hand: We have e-Infrastructures This is a Grid => <= and this is a Grid Architecture e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
    • Example of an e-Infrastructure: Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications - DEISA e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch

    • DEISA, Vision, Mission, Strategy Vision: Establish persistent European HPC ecosystem integrating national Tier-1 (Tflop/s) and Tier-0 (Pflop/s) centres. Mission: Enhance Europe’s capability in computing and science by integrating supercomputers into European HPC e-infrastructure. Build European Supercomputing Service on top of existing national services, based on the deployment and operation of a persistent, production quality, distributed supercomputing environment with continental scope. Strategy: Consolidate the existing DEISA1 HPC infrastructure and services. Deliver a turnkey operational solution for the future persistent European HPC ecosystem. e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch

    • Distance Learning on e-Infrastructures Distance Learning... ...on e-Infrastructures • Independent of time and space • Independent of time and space • Self-paced learning • Self-paced learning • Teacher-independent learning • Teacher-independent learning • Deductive science education • Inquiry-based science education • Mostly single-learner envirnmt. • Allows for collaborating groups • Linear inter-reactivity, at best • Fully nonlinear interactivity • Mostly static and repetitive • Highly dynamic and nonlinear • Allows for complex simulations, => Improved (but similar to) data processing, and visualization class-room learning • Brings creativity, motivation and commitment to the students and to the teachers => Paradigm Shift e-School BELIEF-6Choice Delhi Jan 29 2009 Wolfgang Gentzsch
