Learning Passionately

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blended Learning?
Interesting. If you consider the concept of 'blended learning' you soon realize that many things can be 'blended', not just delivery models. Things like role, focus, and curricula. And if you can blend many things, then there is the possibility that different overt and covert curricula can be blended. "From this perspective the key affordances of e-learning, flexibility, community and individualisation are problematic. Against flexibility might be set a return to piecework and insecurity".

"From this perspective the key affordances of e-learning, flexibility, community and individualisation are problematic. Against flexibility might be set a return to piecework and insecurity." Via Graham Attwell. See also George Roberts on community consolidation: "Communities don't just happen. There needs to be organisation, structure, coordination, focus and planning". More...

Informatology: Blended Learning

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Informatology: Blended Learning
Scott Wilson also presented to the British Council the other day and gave a talk that was very similar to my own (the examples differ, in some cases, though, and there was more emphasis on mobile communications). These are his slides. He notes, "I was also looking at some mobile technologies, and hoped to be able to demo some things, but time and again came face to face with mobile platform lock-in, whether by the phone OS or network provider, which is a real shame!" It is, and it's one of the major reasons I'm not a really fan of mobile. More...

The PERLA Framework: Blending Personalization and Learning Analytics

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The PERLA Framework: Blending Personalization and Learning Analytics
Mohamed Amine Chatti, Arham Muslim, International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019/02/28
From the abstract: "This paper discusses the Personalization and Learning Analytics (PERLA) framework which represents the convergence of personalization and learning analytics and provides a theoretical foundation for effective analytics-enhanced personalized learning." It's important to not that the authors distinguish personalization from adaptation (or adaptive learning systems). "Personalization is learner-driven; the system only helps learners decide what to do next." Anyhow, the framework is based on a cycle alternating execution and evaluation (described by feed-forward and feedback indicators respectively). More...

Content Management and Blended Learning: Beyond the Boarders of the Classroom

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Thomas Pfeffer[Edit][Delete]: Content Management and Blended Learning: Beyond the Boarders of the Classroom, Zeitschrift fur Hochschulentwicklung [Edit][Delete] November 13, 2006
The translation of this paper is sometimes rough, but it makes some useful distinctions between types of communication (personal (or, interaction), organisational, and community) and types of publication (course, organisation and society). A lot of familiar stuff (learning object metaphors, for example) in familiar settings (blended learning). More...

CNFPT - Les formations mixtes

Retour à l'accueilCes formations proposent à la fois des temps à distance et des temps en présentiel.

Plus...
