It's not really learning anymore

Learning with e's

Here she listed a host of learning theories, and linked them to existing pedagogies before weaving them into recent high profile e-learning projects. Anyone can copy and paste from Wikipedia and construct an essay (and I daresay pay for pre-written essays on just about any subject under the sun if they wish to get into wholesale plagiarism).

Content as curriculum?

Learning with 'e's

I was taught in school that there are nine planets orbiting the sun. Contemporary pedagogy is only effective if there is a clear understanding of the power and efficacy of the tools that are available. I think it's about time we reconsidered the way curricula in schools are presented. The tired, just in case model of curriculum just doesn't make sense anymore.
