Collaborative & Creative Online Learning

Teacher Reboot Camp

“The number one benefit of educational technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. Check out your VLE and see what tools and features already support collaboration and creativity. Does your VLE have forums, offer badges, or allow you to embed? If you are deciding on a VLE, consider the following. It is frustrating to only have a Learning Management System (LMS) or VLE accessible only when you are on campus.

Learning first, technology second

Learning with 'e's

Learning should always come before technology. Many teachers welcome the idea of bringing new technology into the classroom. Sometimes, the technology does get in the way of learning and teaching. I know it''s has been said many times before, but it''s worth saying again.

'Education Technology's Completely Over'

But many of those folks utterly misunderstood Prince’s relationship to technologies – much like many, I’d argue, misconstrue what the Luddites in the early nineteenth century were actually so angry about when they took to smashing looms.

Technology is just a tool. Recently, I conducted a webinar for SimpleK12’s technology day, Technophobe to Technoninja. I had a fun time creating the presentation, The Tech Ninja Guide , which is full of tips for integrating technology effectively. Send your student ninjas on learning missions with technology. You will need ninja learning community (a VLE/LMS ). Integrate a technology component with projects you already give your students.

How Malaysian schools are tackling blended-learning challenges

The Christensen Institute

Malaysia has a very unique education system: over the past two decades, the government has invested millions of dollars in equipping all 10,000 public schools with not only computer labs, but also the Frog Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). In Malaysia, some of the most illuminating data came from one specific question we asked in the survey, “What are your key challenges when using technology?”

Offline Activities with Mobile Devices

Teacher Reboot Camp

Integrating technology in the classroom does not mean you need an Internet connection. Even without an Internet connection students learn a lot with mobile devices, laptops, and other technologies. When they are connected to the Internet they can add to a Padlet or the class virtual learning environment (VLE). If you are working with no Internet connection, then students upload the images to a class laptop when they have time and you can upload it to the class VLE.

Why 'A Domain of One's Own' Matters (For the Future of Knowledge)

Hack Education

I am best known, no doubt, for my criticism of education technology. Often when I say that I think that the “Domain of One’s Own” initiative is one of the most important education technologies, I always hear pushback from the Twitter riffraff. The technologies were not, at the outset, proprietary. Education technologies, particularly those that enable “algorithmic decision-making,” need transparency and understanding.

Punk learning

For some time, educators have been subverting established methods and turning their backs on institutional tools and technologies such as the managed learning environment (also known as LMS or VLE). By 1977, punk music had emerged as a creative force to be reckoned with.

False frontiers

Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Nik Peachey

Many of the other commercially available LMS (learning management systems) and VLE (virtual learning environment) platforms aren’t doing any better. To ignore the potential that online learning and new technology has to offer is to be like King Canute trying to order back the sea.

We need to rethink university IT Services

Mark Smithers

There is little room for experimenting with tools beyond the VLE. As a former academic and a former senior manager in IT services in one of Australia’s largest universities and as someone for whom the role of technology in universities is fundamental to the ability to innovate, I have to say that Martin is completely correct. Innovations and going beyond the VLE.

I think because I started to sound a bit like a fervent preacher when I started talking about teaching, learning and technology. None of this happens in an LMS (or VLE), in fact, that systematic design of that system is anathema to all of these crucial elements of educating in the digital era.
