Acerca del Curso

For three decades and longer we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many ways and at most institutional sites, education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education. But what might be new? How can we use technologies to innovate in education? This course explores seven affordances of e-learning ecologies, which open up genuine possibilities for what we call New Learning – transformative, 21st century learning: 1. Ubiquitous Learning 2. Active Knowledge Making 3. Multimodal Meaning 4. Recursive Feedback 5. Collaborative Intelligence 6. Metacognition 7. Differentiated Learning These affordances, if recognized and harnessed, will prepare learners for success in a world that is increasingly dominated by digital information flows and tools for communication in the workplace, public spaces, and personal life. This course offers a wide variety of examples of learning technologies and technology implementations that, to varying degrees, demonstrate these affordances in action. -------------------------------- Recommended Background -------------------------------- This course is designed for people interested in the future of education and the "learning society," including people who may wish to join education as a profession, practicing teachers interested in exploring future directions for a vocation that is currently undergoing transformation, and community and workplace leaders who regard their mission to be in part "educative." -------------------------------- Take this Course for Credit at the University of Illinois -------------------------------- This course has the same content and anticipates the same level of contribution by students in the e-Learning Ecologies course offered to graduate certificate, masters, and doctoral level students in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. Of course, in the nature of MOOCs many people will just want to view the videos and casually join some of the discussions. Some people say that these limited kinds of participation offer evidence that MOOCs suffer from low retention rates. Far from it – we say that any level of engagement is good engagement. On the other hand, if you would like to take this course for credit at the University of Illinois, apply here: http://education.illinois.edu/online-offcampus/programs-degrees/ldl-online If you have already taken this course in Coursera, you can prepare a portfolio of work created there and request that this work is taken into account for your University of Illinois course....

Overall, it was an interesting course that touched upon various learning/teaching strategies. The course is relevant in the present times of digital transformation sweeping the globe. As responsible citizens, we need to keep reinventing the wheel when it comes our learning and teaching mindset. In this respect, this course has been a catalyst to nudge us to think and expand our cognitive horizons. Thank you!

The course provided a good round-up on how learning environments are changing and on which means teachers have at disposal to provide state-of-the-art education in the digital age. Weekly assignments and peer reviews help to reflect and apply the concepts of modern learning environments. Still, it gets sometimes a bit monotonous because the assignment tasks are always the same.

O conteúdo do curso é excelente. A única dificuldade é a avaliação. Por ser uma peer evaluation ficamos na dependência dos outros participantes avaliarem, o que atrapalha um pouco a continuidade do curso. Além disso, como não há necessidade de se justificar as avaliações, algumas delas parecem ser feitas superficialmente, sem que o peer tenha de fato lido nossos textos.

The content was quite interesting. I felt the value that the instructors and Illinois brought to this topic.

The dual format (Scholar and Coursera) approach was confusing.

I did not get the sense of community with this course. Not sure how many were enrolled but there was very little contact.

There was no current content provided by the instructor during the run of the course. (on autopilot?)

In a course on eLearning I expected much more facile, innovative and creative delivery. The experience felt very much like MOOC v.1

I also felt there was too much self-emphasis placed on the Scholar format - as if the instructors were using the content to tout and promote the format. It felt disingenuous.

Rigor and assessment were very light - which is good or bad depending on your expectations.

As with any format like this, you get more out of it if you put more in.

Why is this response set up to be center justified?
