How the internet is revolutionizing education

  1. 1. How the Internet is Revolutionizing Education Выполнила: Елена Малахова 1 курс магистратуры Иваново 2014
  2. 2. THE INTERNET – THE TOOL OF EDUCATION  Free education has never been so accessible. The Web gives lifelong learners the tools to become autodidacts, eschewing exorbitant tuition and joining the ranks of other self-taught great thinkers in history such as Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Paul Allen and Ernest Hemingway.
  3. 3. THE BEGINNING  In April 2001, Charles M. Vest, the MIT President announced that the university would make its materials for all its courses freely available on the Internet  In April 2006, UC Berkeley announced its plan to put complete academic courses on Apple’s iTunes U.  In October 2007, the school launched UC Berkeley on YouTube.
  4. 4. GOALS Benjamin Hubbard the Manager of Webcast at UC Berkeley: «…The first is wanting students to have access to materials. The second is for cultivating a really great affinity for a public university that’s providing research and community service. The third is closely aligned with this opportunity to provide educational resources all over the world to those from all walks
  5. 5. THE WEB OPENS THE WORLD  The Web has unlocked the keys to a worldwide virtual school, potentially leveling the playing field for students around the world.
  6. 6. OPEN CULTURE  The Open Education Movement has been gaining momentum since 2006.  The same year Dr. Dan Colman, launched Open Culture, the greatest free cultural and educational media website .I’ve ever come across.  Almost 5 years old, Open Culture is the largest database of free cultural and educational media in
  7. 7. TWO DIMESIONS OF «OPEN CULTURE»  First, it acts as a portal, collecting external links so users are able to access materials directly from the distributor, whether the media be on a site, YouTube or iTunes.  Second, it includes blog-style content with 2-3 posts a day of handpicked media bites like “The Existential Star Wars: Sartre Meets Darth Vader.”
  8. 8. EDUCATION OUTSIDE OF INSTITUTIONAL WALLS  Khan Academy is an online collection featuring over 2,100 educational videos  Academic Earth is working its way up to being the Hulu of academic videos and courses.  P2PU - education project that organizes learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements.”
  9. 9. EDUCATION OUTSIDE OF INSTITUTIONAL WALLS  Skillshare is a community marketplace that enables users to learn anything from anyone.  Scitable is a free science social network with a peer-reviewed on library built on top of it. The network, which launched in 2009, is a product of the Nature Publishing Group, one of the largest, most prestigious science publishers in the world.
  10. 10. SKYPE’S ROLE  Skype’s global platform and massive user adoption makes it one of the most influential technologies in changing the reach of education  Skype can help to improve literacy and education around the globe  Skype in the Classroom can help like-minded teachers collaborate on projects and share resources.  Skype can connect children globally for shared learning experiences
  11. 11. CAN THE INTERNET REPLACE THE HIGHER EDUCATION  “There’s a lot of debate right now about whether or not paying for a degree is worth it, a particular problem facing entrepreneurs”.  “The education is basically extremely overpriced. People are not getting their money’s worth, objectively, when you do the math. There’s this sort of psycho-social component to people taking on these enormous debts when they go to college simply because that’s what everybody’s doing”.
  12. 12. BUT WHAT DO THE ACADEMICS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS?  “I think courses on the Internet are a great way to continue learning and to acquire new information and new knowledge, but they only partially address furthering education. An education is more than just passively listening to lectures.” -Dr. Dan Colman, Editor of Open Culture  “Replace? Oh no. The Internet is an amazing tool. But it’s also a tool that’s built on the capabilities of the people who are using it. The Internet alone won’t be able to replace higher education…” - Benjamin Hubbard, ETS, Manager of Webcast at UC Berkeley
  13. 13. TO PAY OR NOT TO PAY FOR A QUALITY EDUCATION?  Much of it depends on the job you want, but then again it always has. If you want to be a fireman, you don’t need to go to graduate school. But if you want to be an orthodontist, please don’t just watch YouTubes and practice pulling out cavities on your dog.
  14. 14. SUMMING UP  It’s clear that the world is moving faster than it ever has before. surely the foundations of learning must change too and if we’re going to continue to evolve as a species and as a culture, we’re long overdue for an education revolution.
