  1. 1. 9 inputs to create more value in education
  2. 2. #1 Start-off workshop with all participants

  10. 10. #4 Further meetings on initiative of each participant

  23. 23. #6 Education based on intrinsic motivation
  24. 24. Financial advantages Costs for tests / control at the end of the education process are reduced, for example costs for room, paper, controllers at tests, transportation, and energy. Costs for writing, printing, and distributing diplomas are reduced. As the most effective financial incentives are less effective than the best non-financial incentives, time / energy is invested better in other things that help people learn more and get more success.

  26. 26. Current mental model: The teaching factory Students are raw materials that need to be taught in order to pass exams. Classrooms are the primary physical environments for teaching. Organization based on classes, subjects, and 45-minute time slots. Alternative mental model: The learning environment Students are essential resources in the learning process. They are in charge of their own learning process. Learning takes place in a wide variety of environments inside and outside the school. The organizational unit is the individual student. Learning pace, method, and content is individual. Source: Kolind, Lars: The Second Cycle, p. 155-156.

Each participant gets more individual benefit, because he/she can work/learn anytime and anywhere. Costs for software are reduced, as many Web 2.0 technologies can be used with little or no costs.
  42. 42. Research by Becta suggests that Web 2.0 technologies are beneficial in helping to increase student engagement and participation, and to encourage online discussion outside school. According to the research, they also help to improve academic results. Source: Becta shows benefit of Web 2.0 in the classroom. e-learning age, December/January 2009.
  43. 43. Undergraduate education is on the verge of a radical reordering. Colleges, like newspapers, will be torn apart by new ways of sharing information enabled by the Internet. The business model that sustained private U.S. colleges cannot survive. Source
  44. 44. ”We need to develop the ability to teach each student in a different way that is tailored to the way their brain is wired to learn. The only way that that can be done is if learning is accomplished by computer and by software rather than by a teacher standing up in a monolithic mode. Computer based learning is much more customizable to individual students’ styles and paces of learning. Clayton Christensen Source:
