Digital literacies online

Learning with 'e's

Photo by Steve Wheeler I'm currently writing several short online courses for educators, and I've just published the second module in my online series about digital learning. It focuses on digital competencies and literacies and takes under an hour to complete.

Digital identity

Learning with 'e's

When we immerse ourselves in the digital world, and we mediate our communication through technology, it becomes more complex still. It's just the ticket for teachers who have recently been compelled to adopt technology supported learning.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Emerging Technologies in e-Learning

Learning Visions

Thursday, June 28, 2007 Emerging Technologies in e-Learning I sat in on a lunchtime WebEx presentation with Gary Woodill -- Director, Research and Analysis, Brandon Hall Research. The topic: Emerging Technologies in e-Learning. Emerging" = kinds of e-learning that are just starting to show up -- in labs, new company offerings. Gary has worked on three "Emerging e-Learning" reports Emerging E-Learning Technologies: Have looked at 52 emerging technologies.

Digital is default

Image by Martin42 on Wikimedia Commons When I read Being Digital for the first time, way back in 1997, it slowly dawned on me that everything was about to change. Being digital in the 21st Century is less innocent than it was at the end of the 20th Century.

Digital habitus

Learning with 'e's

So what of our habitual use of digital media? Do these constitute a digital habitus? When we observe our digital representations, our lives portrayed on screen, and our ideas played out in a virtual simulacrum of reality, what do we see?

Digital classrooms

Learning with 'e's

This is Part 5 in my series of posts on the future of learning and technology. A few years ago Peter John and I wrote a book entitled 'The Digital Classroom'. We even mentioned the Semantic Web (or Web 3.0 ) as a potential horizon technology for learning.

Digital Learnscapes

Learning with 'e's

Many have said that Pelecon events inspire and energise delegates and challenge perspectives on education, learning and development, and the role of technology. Others have said that Pelecon is one of the best forums for informal debate on the learning technology conference circuit.

Connected pedagogy: Smart technology

Learning with 'e's

The theme of the conference is 'connecting through educational technology' - this echoes the themes of a number of other recent conferences, many of which explore the idea of connected learning. In the industrialised nations of the world, digital is now default.

Digital learning in organisations

Learning with 'e's

It's quite a departure for me, because my last 5 books have focused on learning and technology for schools, colleges and universities. The title of the book is 'Digital Learning in Organisations', and is already being marketed on Amazon and other online outlets.

Old technologies don't die

Learning with 'e's

Witnessing this scene reminds me that no matter what technologies emerge, and no matter what disruptive innovations come along, we will always have the older, more traditional media to use. That's why they never rule anything - tool, resource or technology - from the mix.

What is digital learning?

Learning with 'e's

Over the next two weeks I''m in New Zealand, doing a series of keynote presentations to teachers on the future of education and technology supported learning. We live in unprecedented times where everything technology touches grows exponentially. How would you define digital learning?

Future technologies now

HTC Vive in action - Photo by Steve Wheeler At the JISC Connect More event held in Cheltenham recently, a number of futuristic technologies were on display for delegates to experience. The technology has plenty of potential to be used across the curriculum, and not solely in creative arts.

Digital literacies in the age of remix

Learning with 'e's

I presented this latest version of my digital literacies model at the 2016 Solstice Conference hosted by Edge Hill University. The components in the model are by no means exhaustive - I acknowledge there are many more literacies, some of which are emergent due to new technologies and services.

Education, schooling and the digital age

Learning with 'e's

Students no longer passively absorb content, because they own personal digital devices, and they can use these to produce, organise, repurpose and share their own content. Co-production of knowledge is emerging as a new model for learning in the digital age.

Our digital future 4: Pervasive computing

Learning with 'e's

In my slides (which as I write have topped 110,000 views on SlideShare) I mention the four trends that have been recognised in educational technology in the last 30 years. Pervasive technology is constantly connected, always available and ubiquitous.

Global digital tribe

Learning with 'e's

If you are immersed in technology mediated communication, there are no apparent barriers to membership of your community of practice. To me it resembles a global digital tribe. The global digital tribe has many smaller sub-sets we can call clans.

Digital assignments: How shall we grade them?

Many of the modules I teach at my university deal with alternative methods of learning and teaching, and focus a great deal on new and emerging technologies. Over the next few academic years I predict that submitting assignments in alternative digital formats will become the norm.

Our digital future 11: AI enhanced course design

We have traversed several emerging ideas, including the use of virtual teaching assistants (chatbots), ultra-personalised learning and machine intelligence, but the most important component in education is still the human element.

Theories for the digital age: Connectivism

Learning with 'e's

Learning in the industrialised world can now be contextualised within a largely technological landscape, where the use of digital media is assuming increasing importance. Clearly our social and cultural worlds are influenced by new technology, but are there also biological implications?

Corporate learning in the digital age

Some are ditching their training rooms in favour of digital delivery of content, and bosses that are forward thinking are investing in social learning, social media and mobile devices to support the learning of their employees. Do companies use these technologies, and how?

Technology won't replace teachers, but.

"Technology won't replace teachers, but teachers who use technology will probably replace teachers who don't" This was just one of the contentious and thought provoking statements made at Learning Through Technology this week in Glasgow.

Is technology killing the art of conversation?

The exchange then descended into: 'There's too much technology around' and, 'I don't know what the world is coming to.' Jaron Lanier (2011) believes that interactive technologies are 'deadening personal interaction.' Photo source Is technology killing the art of conversation?

Because of my work in educational technology at the nursing college, I naturally chose to study something that I was familiar with, but with an aspect that would present me with a challenge. In fact, satellite technology is arguably the most expensive technology humankind has ever invented.
