    The Evolution of E-Learning...ED-6620 The Evolution of E-Learning...ED-6620 Presentation Transcript

    • The EvOLUTION OFE-Learning
      Stefan Moores
    • The ‘Then’ of Education…
    • The ‘Now’ of Education…
    • E-Learning…
    • The Future…???
      What is the future of e-learning going to encompass??
      Does there need to be new pedagogical approaches to effectively address e-learning??
    • E-Learning
      Defined by Harley, Lawrence and the University of California (2007) as being mostly facilitated through the use of the internet and may be assisted by other technologies such as interactive communication technologies or ICT’s.
      According to Remtulla (2007) it is a ‘Grand Solution’ for the future of education.
    • Three Generations of Distance Education
      According to Scott Niper (1989), as cited in Guri-Rosenblit (2005, p. 467), the three are:
      Correspondence teaching.
      Print with broadcast media.
      Use of ICT’s and the internet.
    • Moving Ahead…
    • New ICT’s…
      (Conrad, 2008)
    • New E-Learning Platforms…
      Blackboard Window
      WebCT Window
    • E-Learning Tools…
      Integrated Learning System’s, web content and digital text (McFarlane, 2001).
    • The Future of E-Learning…
    • Benefits of E-Learning For Future Generations…
      According to Tsai (2009) there are a number of benefits for e-learners, which include…
      Flexible time and space.
      Allows for indirect social interaction.
      Abundance of learning resources
      Dynamic learning interfaces.
    • Future Designs of E-Learning Environments…
      Hughes (2007) believes that future e-learning environments must include…
      Freedom to challenge ideas.
      Must not become static, insular or exclusive.
      Build a sense of community.
      Interactions provide greater opportunity to engage the learner.
    • Assessment of E-Learning…
    • Future Pedagogies For E-Learning…
      ‘Disruptive’ technologies need ‘Disruptive’ Pedagogies (Remtulla, 2006).
      Teaching strategies must exploit underused aspects of E-Learning technologies (Remtulla, 2006).
    • A ‘Blended’ Learning Approach…
      Combines many pedagogical styles (Breen, 2007).
      There are many positive benefits to using a blended learning approach (Clarke, 2007).
      Couples face-to-face learning with e-learning (Breen, 2007)
    • ‘Blended’ Learning Should Be Cyclic…
    • Something New??
    • E-Learning Pedagogy…
      Connectivism-the learning process is cyclical, in that learners will connect to a network to share and find new information, will modify their beliefs on the basis of new learning, and will then connect to a network to share these realizations and find new information once more (Hill & Kop, 2008, p. 2).
    • Future Considerations…
      E-learner’s must be passionate and considerate in the use of technologies for e-learning (Conrad, 2008).
      New technologies and pedagogical approaches are necessary (Christen, 2009).
    • The Future of E-Learning…
