  • Hang ups with the terminology, especially amongst specialists eLearning – often associated with distance learning and substituting f2f Designing L&T resources that guide student learning in the absence of a teacher. - Design guideline etc. Gilly Salmons 5 stage model. Blended Learning – aim to indicate the f2f and online integration – however still seen as distinct TEL – Clarification / Articulating that the focus is on pedagogic principles - But also new (are they new?) opportunities – connectivisim, laboratory in the field… Newtons cradle
  • The mobile fieldwork solution...with James showing the results of simultaneous upload of data from the land cover exercise to Server....which was then pushed back to the Junos

    5. 5. “The world they encounter in higher education has been constructed ona wholly different set of norms. Characterised broadly, it is hierarchical,substantially introvert, guarded, careful, precise and measured. The twoworlds are currently co-existing, with present-day students effectivelyoccupying a position on the cusp of change. They aren’t demandingdifferent approaches; rather they are making such adaptations as arenecessary for the time it takes to gain their qualifications. Effectively,they are managing a disjuncture, and the situation is feeding the naturalinertia of any established system. It is, however, unlikely to besustainable in the long term.” JISC 2009 Higher Education in a Web 2.0 World al Learning Inform Formal Learning ial Soc Graben image: CC BY-NC 2.0 by Gunnar Ries Zwo:

    7. 7. Learning, Teaching and Assessment StrategyKey objectives include:• To support and develop educational technologies that enhance the student contribution, collaboration and engagement in learning and their ownership of the learning process;• To support and develop technologies that promote flexible design and delivery;• To develop pedagogic models that effectively integrate learning and teaching in the physical and virtual environments to enhance student learning;• To support and develop learning resources and activities that can be interfaced with students personal learning environments and technologies.
    8. 8. Digital LiteraciesBeetham et al 2009 ‘Thriving in the 21st century: The report of the LLiDA Project’Challenges that students need help with include:•The rise of interdisciplinarity and multi-disciplinary teams focussed onspecific tasks•A networked society and communities•Blurring boundaries of real and virtual, public and private, work & leisure•Increasingly ubiquitous and embedded digital technologies•Rapid socio and techno-social change ‘Visitors and Residents’ David White, University of Oxford Understanding the visitor“Highly confident users of digital technologies may struggle to transfer thoseskills to their study” JISC Responding to Learners Guide 2

Concerns Digital Literacies Technology Confidence Millennial Student Student Resistance Staff Role “Rather than replacing the teacher, technology has in many ways increased the focus on pedagogic skills. The art of the practitioner as instigator, designer and animateur remains key to the process of learning”. JISC 2009 Hazard image:CC BY-NC 2.0 by Chris Dye

    18. 18. “Understanding and learning the different ways of importing and collating different sources of media and tagging spatial location to them (i.e. long/lat values for example) has given more interest in the subject and found some of the features pretty cool to analyse and present!”“I think the technologies I used and the way I used them helped my learning; in conjunction with other research they will give a broader and fuller picture of an environment”
