Education technology key concepts

  1. 1. Prof. Paula Ledesma UTN- 2010
  2. 2. Terminology: <ul><li>IT </li></ul><ul><li>ICT </li></ul><ul><li>CALL </li></ul><ul><li>TELL </li></ul><ul><li>E-LEARNING </li></ul><ul><li>M-LEARNING </li></ul><ul><li>BLENDED LEARNING </li></ul><ul><li>VLE </li></ul><ul><li>PLE </li></ul>
  3. 3. CALL <ul><li>Computer-assisted language learning (CALL) is a form of computer-based learning which carries two important features: individualized learning and bidirectional learning. It is not a method. CALL materials are materials for learning. The focus of CALL is learning, and not teaching. CALL materials are used in teaching to facilitate the language learning process. It is a a form of student-centered learning materials, which promote self-paced accelerated learning </li></ul>
  4. 4. TELL <ul><li>Derived from CALL = Technology Enhanced Language Learning </li></ul>
  5. 5. E-LEARNING <ul><li>E-learning comprises all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching, which are procedural in character and aim to effect the construction of knowledge with reference to individual experience, practice and knowledge of the learner. Information and communication systems, whether networked or not, serve as specific media to implement the learning process </li></ul>
  6. 6. M-LEARNING <ul><li>Any sort of learning that happens when the learner is not at a fixed, predetermined location, or learning that happens when the learner takes advantage of the learning opportunities offered by mobile technologies. </li></ul>learning with portable technologies including but not limited to handheld computers, MP3 players, notebooks and mobile phones
  7. 7. BLENDED LEARNING <ul><li>A blended learning approach can combine face-to-face instruction with computer-mediated instruction. It also applies science or IT activities with the assistance of educational technologies using computer, cellular or Smartphones, Satellite television channels, videoconferencing and other emerging electronic media. Learners and teachers work together to improve the quality of learning and teaching, the ultimate aim of blended learning being to provide realistic practical opportunities for learners and teachers to make learning independent, useful, sustainable and ever growing </li></ul>
  8. 8. VLE <ul><li>A virtual learning environment (VLE) is a system designed to support teaching and learning in an educational setting, as distinct from a Managed Learning Environment, (MLE) where the focus is on management. A VLE will normally work over the Internet and provide a collection of tools such as those for assessment (particularly of types that can be marked automatically, such as multiple choice), communication, uploading of content, return of students' work, peer assessment, administration of student groups, collecting and organizing student grades, questionnaires, tracking tools, etc. New features in these systems include wikis, blogs, RSS and 3D virtual learning spaces. </li></ul><ul><li>While originally created for distance education, VLEs are now most often used to supplement traditional face to face classroom activities, commonly known as Blended Learning </li></ul>
  9. 9. PLE <ul><li>&quot; Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to </li></ul><ul><li>set their own learning goals </li></ul><ul><li>manage their learning; managing both content and process </li></ul><ul><li>communicate with others in the process of learning </li></ul><ul><li>and thereby achieve learning goals. </li></ul><ul><li>A PLE may be composed of one or more subsystems: As such it may be a desktop application, or composed of one or more web-based services.&quot; [1] </li></ul><ul><li>Important concepts in PLEs include the integration of both formal and informal learning episodes into a single experience, the use of social networks that can cross institutional boundaries, and the use of networking protocols (Peer-to-Peer, web services, syndication) to connect a range of resources and systems within a personally-managed space </li></ul>
