True pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

Pedagogy is not about directing children. Nor is it, in Brennan's terms 'concerned with the work or art of being a teacher.' Those are mere glimpses of the reality, and only a part of a larger equation. In its absolute form, pedagogy is not just about teaching. It does not simply concern itself with the 'delivery' of education or content. In the truest sense, teaching is just one element of pedagogy and not the entire story.

Presence Pedagogy: Needs Some More Dimensions

Kapp Notes

Among its approaches, the pedagogy of empathy is one that can be implemented even in simplified elearning solutions.

The foundations of innovation in L&D

E-Learning Provocateur

There are two sides of the innovation coin in corporate learning & development: technology and pedagogy. The former is rather obvious and is often conflated with the term innovation. Futuristic hardware and magical software that educates everyone at the press of a button are tempting “solutions” Some folks call this mindset Shiny New Toy Syndrome, and by golly, it’s a pandemic. So what are the foundations of innovation in L&D?

Opening up #learning: Simpler does not mean better

Learning with 'e's

This is a continuation from my last blog post on the affordances of learning technology. In the last post, Access to Knowledge , I wrote about how technology has made access to content - and thus to knowledge - easier and open to all. Of course, the caveat is that access to content that is open requires users to be able to discern good from bad content. There are further caveats when we use technology to learn. The same applies to simplifying tasks.

In 1970, sociologist Alvin Toffler predicted: ' Within thirty years, the educational systems of the United States, and several Western European countries as well, will have broken decisively with the mass production pedagogy of the past, and will have advanced into an era of educational diversity based on the liberating power of the new machines.'
