Conole keynote in_suedu

  1. 1. New ecologies and trajectories of learning Gráinne Conole University of Leicester 1st October 2012 InSuEdu conference Thessaloniki, GreeceNational Teaching Fellow 2012
  2. 2. Outline• Technologies trends• Technologies for learning• Teacher practice and paradoxes• Learning Design• E-Pedagogies & technologies• Facets of learning• Ecologies of learning• Conclusion
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Gutenberg to Zuckerberg• Take the long view• The web is not the net• Disruption is a feature• Ecologies not economics• Complexity is the new reality• The network is now the computer• The web is evolving• Copyright or copywrong
  5. 5. Technological trends• Mobiles and e-books• Games-based learning• Learning analytics• Gesture-based learning• The Internet of things• Personalised learning• Cloud computing• Ubiquitous learning• BYOD (Bring your own device)
  6. 6. The Internet of things• People, resources, things• Semantic connectivity
  7. 7. Google glasses project• Can ‘see’ the Internet on glasses• Context sensitive information• Context lenses planned
  8. 8. Technologies for learning• Audio-graphics • Podcasts• Blogs • RSS feeds• E-Books • Second life• E-Portfolios • Social bookmarking• Games • Twitter• Instant Messaging • Video Mesaging• Mashups • Wikis• Mobile learning • Video clips and YouTube• Photo sharing • Video chat Rennie and Morrison, 2012
  9. 9. Teacher practices: paradoxes• Technologiesnot extensively used (Molenda)• Lack of uptake of OER (McAndrew et al.)• Little use beyond early adopters (Rogers) Pandora’s box• Despite rhetoric and funding little evidence of transformation (Cuban, 10
  10. 10. Promise and realitySocial andparticipatory mediaoffer new ways tocommunicate andcollaborate Not fully exploitedWealth of free Replicating bad pedagogyresources and tools Lack of time and skills
  11. 11. Learning Design Shift frombelief-based, implicit approaches todesign- based,explicit approaches Learning Design A design-based approach to creation and support of courses Encouragesreflective,scholarly practicesPromotessharing and discussion
  12. 12. Socio-cultural perspectives Mediating Design Mediating Artefacts Concepts Artefacts (MA) Tools Dialogues Activities Creates Learning activity Teacher or Resource Has an Design inherentResearch focusWhat Mediating Artefacts do teachers use? Other teachers and learnersWhat Mediating Artefacts can we create to can use or repurposeguide the design process? Vygotsky, Activity Theory
  13. 13. Design-Based ResearchA systematic, but flexible methodology aimed toimprove educational practice through iterativeanalysis, design, development and implementation,based on collaboration between researchers andpractitioners in real-world settings, and leading tocontextually-sensitive design principles and theories. Wang and Hannafin, 2005
  14. 14. • Means of dealing with real learning contexts• Iterative: design, implementation, evaluation, refine• Gives rich insights into complex dynamics
  15. 15. DBR and Learning Design• Builds on theory & prior • Builds on ID, OER, Ped Patterns research research etc.• Pragmatic • Practical tools & resources• Collaborative • Work with practitioners• Contextual • Real, authentic contexts• Integrative • Mixed-method approach• Iterative – problem, • Problem, implementation, solution, evaluation evaluation and refinement• Adaptive and flexible • Agile, based on practice• Generalisation • Coherent LD framework
  16. 16. Problem and solution• Teachers want – Examples of good practice – Others to talk to• Solution – Social networking site – Best of web 2.0 – Iterative design and evaluation
  17. 17. Problem and solution• Teachers want – Design guidance – Means to share and discuss designs• Solution – Design representations – Based on empirical evidence and theory
  18. 18. ConceptualiseWhat do we want to design, who for and why? The 7Cs Framework Consolidate Evaluate and embed your design

  22. 22. Storyboard
  23. 23. Evaluation of Ming Nie
  24. 24. Facets of educationResources Learning pathwaysSupport Accreditation
  25. 25. Resources• Over ten years of the OER movement• Hundreds of OER repositories worldwide• Evaluation shows lack of uptake by teachers and learners• Shift from development to community building and articulation of OER practice Open Educational Resources
  26. 26. The OPAL metromap
  27. 27. Outputs• Inventory of more than 100 OER initiatives• 11 country reports and 13 mini-reports• 7 in-depth case studies• 3 EU-wide policy papers• 7 options brief packs for EU nations/regions
  28. 28. Country reports: key themes• Diversity of educational contexts and maturity of internet provision and use of e-learning• Differences in policy support and funding for OER initiatives• Diversity from basic OER awareness to OER maturity and embedding• Few national OER initiatives
  29. 29. UK Country Report• Funding mainly from government – top-down• Funding mainly on production/producers, little on end-users or impact on learning• Mainly HE/FE, little school-based• Most institutions don’t have an OER strategy• Lots on cascading and transferring of experience• Most institutions have an OER repository• Related work: iTunesU and MOOCs Ming Nie
  30. 30. Massive Open Online Course

  32. 32. Support• Computer assisted• Peer support• Tutor support• Community support• Mentoring

  43. 43. Ecologies of learning• Co-evolution of tools and users• Niches colonisation of new habitats• Survival of the fittest
  44. 44. Rhizomatic learning A rhizome is a stem of a plant that sends out roots as it spreads. Describes the way that ideas are multiple, interconnected and self- replicating. A rhizome has no beginning or end like a learning process
  45. 45. Conclusion• Disaggregation: resources, support, learning pathways and accreditation• What is the role of traditional institutions?• How can we harness the power of new media?
