The logical impossibility of Status Quo: Six disconnects that demand a digital pedagogy (or at least a good debate about it)

  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
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. Each generation prides itself on the fact that we are different to our parents… well guess what?
  5. 5. Our pedagogical approach may be seen by learners as akin to watching your mum trying to twerk at your 18th birthday party (or finding your granny on Tinder).
  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
