E Learning

  1. 1. Education in the new millennium
  2. 2. E-learning is one of several ways in which technology is changing the face of education. Over the past 20 years, schools have transformed from building centered places where students learned basic skills, to undefined venues where students interact using multiple modalities. One of the most difficult challenges facing educational as an institution today is in trying to predict and prepare for the ways that teaching and learning will evolve over the next two decades.
  3. 3. 1. Committee members vary in their understanding of how technology fits in the classrooms.
  4. 4. The oversight board is wary of how this will impact the budget.

  6. 6. E learning is changing the face of education. From a building centered place where basic skills were taught to an undefined- anywhere/anytime venue where interaction is multi modal.
  7. 7.  Determine the extent of online learning implementation  Define what constitutes eLearning  Who is doing the “teaching”  Reasons why parents and school districts are using technology to replace or supplement more traditional classrooms.
  8. 8.  Addressing out dated mental models Educators work with limited resources School districts rely on the input of innovators who are loosely connected Professional development Students’ technology skills often exceed those of their teachers Investment and funding

  11. 11. Impact on followers In order to effectively manage an e-learning environment, educational leaders must be familiar with the latest in technological advances in the learning environment.

  13. 13.  Situational leadership 1988 2013 Technology A disparity between how administrators see the use of tech and how the graduates of 2013 see and use technology. Universities focus more of providing repositories of information than in investing in more robust and engaging Web based learning resources.
  14. 14. • The graduating class • Many of them have of 2013 have always cell iphones, laptops had the WWW at • When they entered and social their disposal high school, 60 networking portals million had broadband access
  15. 15.  Schools need to create a shared vision whereby everyone in the community comes together to understand E-learning and its demands.
  16. 16.  Leadersneed to manage the changing role of education The future is Technology now Education Students
  17. 17. Teachers Mentors Educational Institutions Integrated Infrastructure Fit the need of the student Leaders as change agents
  18. 18.  Rapid change requires leadership at all levels. This includes self-leadership, the “process of influencing oneself”. Leading into an unknown future requires challenging your own assumptions about a current state and envisioning the future to create new mental models.
  19. 19. Funding issues continue to be a limiting factor in many schools. Although research over the past 20 years has predicted that technology will usher a transformation in education pedagogy, the revolution has not materialized. Technology initiators have been frustrated with aging or poor performing hardware, lack of professional development, and software that focuses on skill and drill (Staples, Pugach, & Himes, 2005).
  20. 20. Investing in e-learning opportunities is laden with challenges. The chief challenge is that of being able to convince stakeholders of the role that technology should play as pupils learn in the 21st century. For those involved in e-learning projects, investment in technology is paramount and must be a priority. In order to achieve the level of competency that is required in a knowledge based economy, educational institutions will need to budget not only for technological hardware but for professional development opportunities as well.
