    15. 16. Philosophies of Practice <ul><li>Philosophy of practice is the paradigm through which we perceive and practice education </li></ul>
    16. 17. Some Philosophies of Practice <ul><li>Behaviorist —observable behaviour indicates whether or not the learner has learned something </li></ul><ul><li>Cognitivist / Analytical —rational transmission of knowledge; the amount learned depends on the processing capacity and the amount of effort expended during the learning process (there is a reality to be known, cf. post-positivism) </li></ul><ul><li>Critical —promote political, social, and educational change </li></ul><ul><li>Constructivist —the individual learner constructs meaning and knowledge by interpreting the information and the world according to their personal reality </li></ul>

    18. 19. Understanding e-Learning Technologies-in-Practice through Philosophies-in-Practice (TPOL) <ul><li>Embedded in our opinions on e-learning technologies are views on the (non) neutrality of technology. The debate over technological neutrality revolves around whether or not technologies are neutral and whether or not biases can arise only from the ways in which technologies are used by teachers and students – or whether biases can occur through the technologies themselves. An analogy to contextualize and bring relevance to views on the neutrality of technologies can be gained from the catch phrase, “People kill people, not guns.” A comparable catchphrase in the field of e-learning might be, “Educators reshape education, not technologies.” Many educational technologists agree with Jonassen (1996), who asserts that “carpenters use their tools to build things; the tools do not control the carpenter. Similarly, computers should be used as tools for helping learners build knowledge; they should not control the learner” (p. 4). While Jonassen’s argument sounds solid in its rationale, media theorist Marshall McLuhan (1964) suggests otherwise. Specifically, even though the neutrality of a tool speaks to our common sense with respect to the ways in which tools are used, McLuhan and Fiore (1962) maintain that media can profoundly transform society and the human psyche. McLuhan also made famous the aphorism, “The medium is the message,” giving pause to the assumption of the non-neutrality of technology (p. 94). </li></ul>
    19. 20. Tools for online engagement and communication (EDW) <ul><li>After reading this chapter, you should be able to use important online tools such as digital stories, blogs, and wikis to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>• Develop learners’ online identities and communicative abilities. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>• Engage learners with course content and with their peers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>• Develop online learner communities. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>• Vary modes of participation. </li></ul></ul>
