Learning in Context Workshop 2012

Here’s a link to the 2012 Learning in Context Workshop which is happening in Brussels 26th and 27th of March (the last two days before this post).  The focus is on mobile learning and technology enhanced learning and discussions are on best practices (of course!) strengthening ties between different education fields and challenges from recent studies.

Sound like a lot to take in?  u can also go to this website http://www.teleurope.eu/ for more info and some summaries.

 

Enjoy your explorations.

SOLAR: Open Learning Analytics Platform

An open shared platform for learning coming from SOLAR (Society for Learning Analytics Research).  Rather than technology adoption in education being isolated this is suggesting an infrastructure for people to develop new technologies and methods together (there’s more to it than just this so check out the link below).  Wolfgang Greuller does suggest at the end of his blog that we should all think about a ‘data commons’ to cover this shared information.  Interesting idea..

Manifesto for Teaching Online

This morning I have been reading through this manifesto for teaching online:

http://www.education.ed.ac.uk/swop/manifesto.html

I saw the link to it on Stephen Downes page.  Stephen noted that it was a manifesto for TEACHING online rather than LEARNING online.

On the information about the manifesto I like that they mention that it is a continual work in progress.

They also have a wordpress site to discuss the mainfesto:
