E-Pedagogies - Online learning
Transcript of E-Pedagogies - Online learning
A new paradigm?
web based / virtual
specific communication tools
asynchronous / synchronous
--- all forms of electronically
supported learning and teaching.
--- the computer and network-enabled
transfer of skills and knowledge
Mode of use
distance education - totally online
face to face with online support
Formal or informal
Your experiences - formal or informal
2 mins - on your own identify two or three differing online learning experiences
3 mins - groups - combined list of four or five differing online learning experiences

Frames of analysis
Technology agnostic / independent
A common criticism of web-enhanced course design is that online components are bells and whistles tacked onto traditional courses, which are costly to add and only minimally enhance the course content...........fails to create a learning environment that supports the growth of a community of learners and shared knowledge.
Stewart et al (2009)
Constructivist curricula favour an open-ended, negotiable approach that structures activities so that students have opportunities to collaboratively negotiate knowledge and to contextualise learning within an emergent situation.
Mason and Rennie (2010)
Two tenets of constructivism:
1. Learning is an active process of constructing
knowledge rather than acquiring it.
2. Instruction is a process of supporting that construction
rather than of communicating knowledge.
Duffy and Cunningham (1996)
Analysing your experience
Think of your online learning experiences
1. - where do they come on Stephenson's grid?
2. - has constructivist learning theory been a base for
Social Media and Online Learning
Social Media refers to the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue.......... and allows the creation and exchange of user-generated content.
users have the tools to actively engage in the construction of their experience rather than merely absorb existing content
content will be continually refreshed by the users rather require expert input
new tools support collaborative work - allowing users to develop teamwork skills
shared community spaces and intergroup communication are a major part of engaging learners and should lead to users' persistence and motivation to learn
Fundamental underpinning structure of social organisation
Social media offers many news ways of building and maintaining networks
Formal and informal networks
Learners may need guidance and support to build effective networks
Online learning still represents a new paradigm (and always will) for learning and teaching - however how soon will teachers develop effective e-pedagogies?
Surrendering some control of design of instruction
Ability to effectively collaborate
Patience with technology
Academic leaders understand technology use?
Flexible pedagogical approaches
To grow knowledge is to
grow connectedness and diversity.
Does technology inevitably change education?
Does technology inevitably enhance learning?
What is connectivism?
What are the main theoretical tenets of connectivism?
Who are the main connectivist theorists? - find and preci one main paper
Does technology improve learning?
Does technology make education fairer?
Will technology displace teachers?
Will technology displace the school?
