Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

The information in this series has been something I've been presenting, writing, blogging about and more recently doing workshops around. But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences.

Five Years of Blogging

Experiencing eLearning

Five years ago today, I published my first two posts on this blog. I have done better in 2011, with 52 posts, but one of my goals for 2012 is to blog more regularly. Monthly views plateaued for most of 2009 and 2010, but started increasing again in 2011 as I posted more often. When I started this, I had no idea how much I would learn through blogging and how many wonderful people I would get to know. Thank you for reading, commenting, blogging, and sharing.
