The logical impossibility of Status Quo - Six disconnects that demand a digital pedagogy

  1. 1. The logical impossibility of Status Quo Six disconnects that demand a digital pedagogy (or at least a good debate about it) Peter Bryant – London School of Economics, UK @peterbryantHE
  2. 2. The ‘scary’ status quo 1. Learners arriving at university are already e-learners 2. 21st century skills for a technology driven society 3. There is no real and online world…there is just the world 4. Technology is not a class or category. It is a means, a society changing and generation shaping means 5. Not all students are experts in all technologies 6. Student adoption moves faster than institutional adaptation
  3. 3. We have reached a tipping point… 1. Institutional resistance to change (potential) 2. Pedagogy for the 20th (19th?) century 3. Critical shifts in the way information is acquired and applied 4. Student resistance to our use of technology
  4. 4. Modern pedagogy is often… SCAFFOLDED SEQUENTIAL ALIGNED STRUCTURED https://www.flickr.com/photos/verylastexcitingmoment/3980490179
  5. 5. LIFE WORK PLAY LOVE ETC. rarely are
  6. 6. Disconnects of expectation, practice and outcome There is a need to have a debate about the way we teach, what students are learning and how we assess
