e-Learning Themes and Synthesis
Transcript of e-Learning Themes and Synthesis
Technology Will Impact the Future
"We no longer deliver courses. Instead we create 'knowledge environments'" (Conrad, 2001).
"In the online classroom, it is the relationships and interactions among people through which knowledge is primarily generated" (Palloff and Pratt, 1999, p. 15).
"The Internet is the biggest technological change in education and learning since the advent of the printed book some 500 years ago"
(Draves, 2007, p. 5).
Moving Forward in the 21st Century
e-learning Themes and Synthesis
"Lifelong learning is the engine that runs the Information Age" (Draves, 2007, p. 207).
"Because of the changing nature of today's students, economic pressures, and rapid implementation of distance learning courses and programs, definitions of what constitutes education and learning are changing, too" (Palloff and Pratt, 2001, p. 3).
"In the 21st century, online learning will constitute 50% of all learning and education" (Draves, 2007, p. 5).
"The reality is that technology is playing, and will continue to play, a critical role in teaching and learning" (Merisotis, 1999, p. 51).
"Online courses are as much a product of this era as they are a factor that helped produce the era" (Maeroff, 2003, p. 135).

21st Century Students
"Interactive, online learning will revolutionize education. Not only will it affect where we learn, it also will influence how we learn and what we learn" Celente, 1997, p. 249).
"Our society is moving rapidly from an industrial or manufacturing-based society into an information or knowledge economy" (Draves, 2007, p. 163).
"Successful learners in the online environment need to be active, creative, and engaged in the learning process" (Palloff and Pratt, 2001, p. 107).
"All learners will have engaging and empowering learning experiences both in and out of school that prepare them to be active, creative, knowledgeable, and ethical participants in our globally networked society" (U.S. Department of Education, 2010, p. xvi).
"Because of constant digital bombardment, the emergence of the new digital landscape, and the pervasive nature of digital experiences, children today are growing up digitally enhanced" (Jukes, McCain, Crockett, 2010, p. 542).
"Most teachers are eager to embrace new technology, as they have seen their students' excitement and motivation increase when they do so" (Pitler, Hubbell, Kuhn and Malenoski, 2007, p. 1).
"The Internet is like an automobile one hundred years ago. It is still being improved upon" (Draves, 2007, p. 10).
