Let’s begin by asking…
What is
Education?
Education is just…
a story of stories.
Someone
wants
to
tell
them
Someone
wants
to
listen
to
them
Education happens
when you put together…
someone
who wants
to teach
+
someone
who wants
to learn
It is a simple equation.
You have
             the time
abc          and place
 TIME   t1   of the
PLACE   p1   teacher

Teacher
And
the time
and place           abc

of the      t2   TIME

student     p2   PLACE



            Student
abc             abc

      t1   t2
      p1   p2

Teacher    Student
Traditional Education




 abc                           abc

           t1 = t2
           p1 = p2

In traditional education both
 times and places are equal
Virtual Education



            WWW


abc                       abc

        t1 = t2
        p1 = p2

In virtual education times
or places can be different
WWW


abc                abc




And the connection is…
WWW




Technology
But virtual education
has been around for centuries.
Teachers and students
in different times and places
have been connected
by a technology called
Books!
With this
ancient
technology
someone in
one time
and place
can tell a
story
to someone
in a
different
time and
place.
Hopefully…
Successful education
was based on «expert users»
of this ancient technology.
That is
good
readers
and
good
writers
That is:
good readers and good writers
Yesterday:
Reading
                           +
                        Writing




Berthe Morisot (1870)             Johannes Vermeer (1670)
Today:
Recording
    +
 Playing
  back
The process is the same
The tools are different
Different Media   Different Speeds
When education
has a time and a place
We have
a course
A course is a place
where you can go
to listen to a story
Then a course is
One story
One story
   +
One host
One story
      +
  One host
      +
Several guests
But today we have
New principles
  The Materials
     Atoms vs. Bits
     Processing Information
          vs. Moving Objects
     Intangibles
         Collective Knowledge
         Generation of Ideas
                                Gil Bruvel
     Overinformation
     Misinformation
New principles
  The Place
     Distance is redefined
     Frontiers are obsolete
     The World is your audience
        and your competitor
     Challenges and threats            Gil Bruvel
        are closer…
                     one click apart
New principles
  The Time
     Instantaneous
     Interactive / Feedback
     Real time / Multitasking
     Constant Change
                                       Gil Bruvel

     A Life Project
              vs. A Life of Projects
¡Help!
There is a new arena
for this ongoing conversation
between teachers and students.
The virtual classroom
WWW
        Virtual Campus
      Virtual Classroom
     Activities         Resources
• Discussions      • Links
• Questionnaires   • Readings
• Homework         • Learning Objects
• Glossaries               Files
• Chats            • Folders
• Blogs            • Documents
• Wikis            • Videos / Audios
A place full of tools
for the host to find new ways
to tell the story
A story can be told in sequence
          Virtual Classroom
Or not…
          Virtual Classroom
It can be full of
resources
    Readings
              Audios
  Links Videos
      Simulations
   Learning objects
And activities
           Glossaries
  Wikis
          Discussions
Blogs
            Chats
Questionnaires
          Homework
Puzzles
But it will
be lifeless
without an
   active
interaction
of all the
participants
So the
resources
and
activities
are
important
but not as
important
as
creating
A community
We can have
the best of both worlds
and go to
  school
in many
   ways
But some
schools
are not
getting it
right yet…
and these are their
5 big mistakes…
#1



Big Mistake #1
#1



Believing that
Virtual Education
= Massive Education
#1




 Technology is a multiplier

                      … but education is a one to one process.
#1




 There is no limit in the number of
    Participants
    Materials
    Activities
    Links
             …but learning is not accumulation but assimilation.
#1




 You don’t have one course of 250

                             … you have 250 courses of one.
#1




 You should be concerned when your desertion rate is 40%.

                         …That is. If you enrol 1000 students
                                into an 8 semester program.
                                               Only 28 will be
                                 at the graduation ceremony.

                                   …One out of 40 students.
#2



Big Mistake #2
#2



Believing that
Virtual Education
= Mysterious and
Complex Education
#2




 There is no mystery in connecting someone who wants to
  learn and someone who wants to teach.

                                      …Give them the tools.
                                       They’ll do the magic.
#2




 There is a myth that goes around: A good traditional teacher
  will not easily become a good virtual teacher.

                     ...False. A good teacher is a good teacher
                                                   with any tool.

                                        …Unless you think that
                       a «good» virtual teacher = a good actor.
#2




 A halo of complexity and mystery is always convenient to
  create an elite group within the school for virtual education.

            …We are transferring the vices and bureaucracy of
                            old education to the new scenery.

                           …Welcome to the new and improved
                           virtual inferno of politics and intrigue.
#3



Big Mistake #3
#3


Putting
Technology
before Pedagogy
#3




 An educational system logic should be as follows:

      Student ◄ Teacher ◄ Materials ◄ Technology

…Technology is the tool that helps the teacher create materials
                                      to share with the student

                …Technology should be the bridge that allows
                           the teacher – student interaction.
#3




 But the real system usually works like this:

      Student ◄ Materials ◄ Technology ◄ Teacher

…Teachers become subordinates of technology which dictates
                         the way they should tell the story.

  …See how far the teacher is. Probably that is why they call it
                                         “distance” education.
#4



Big Mistake #4
#4



Underestimating your
Teachers and Students
#4




 Some schools have developed a virtual education system,
  but it is a closed system.

              …Closed to criticism, closed to experimentation,
                                          closed to innovation
#4




 Standardization and modularity are the dogma.

                              …Teachers cannot move freely
                               outside predetermined paths.

                                       …Neither do students.
#4




 Students receive predesigned “objects”, “packages”,
  “modules”. Not courses.

                    …A package is the product of a designer.
                 A course is an unpredictable and single event
                                       hosted by an educator.

         …A module is predetermined, a course is contingent.
                                  Like the course of a river.
#5



Big Mistake #5
#5



Taking the Fun
out of Education
#5




 In some schools, virtual education and stress are synonyms.

 …Control, supervision, measurements, indicators and reports
                     have replaced the freedom and flexibility
                                 that was originally promised
                                          in virtual education.

                            …Education was transformed into
                                      an industrial process.
#5




 Education should be accidental, unpredictable, unscripted.

                  …There is plenty of room in virtual education
                                               for spontaneity.

                …Students and teacher should be encouraged
                                               to take risks.
#5




  All courses cannot be structured the same way.

 …Uniformity and homogeneity can not be part of a human process.
…Doing, thinking, watching, analizing, proposing, building: the same
           ingredients cannot be equally formulated for all courses.
 …Some courses are intensive in communication, some in reading,
          some in autoevaluation, some in theory, some in practice.

    …The only constant for all courses is the genuine desire of both
                   teachers and students to interact and have fun.
#5




 Some schools are searching for the “formula” for virtual
  education. For the mould of the perfect course.

                                …”Virtualizing” a subject of study
                                        should not kill its charm.

                       …The labor of a virtual teacher should be
                                      amusing and fascinating.

      Although we have to disobey our institutions to make it so.
