NMC Horizon Report 2014 Higher Education Edition

The NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program. This eleventh edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report is new this year, providing these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of educational technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership and practice. View the work that produced the report at www.horizon.wiki.nmc.org.

    Learning at the Need of Speed – New Insight Report from #elearning age …



    De instrumento, la herramienta puede convertirse en amo, y después en verdugo del hombre. La relación se invierte con más rapidez de lo que se espera: el arado hace del hombre, señor de un jardín, y muy pronto un errabundo en un campo polvoriento. La vacuna, que selecciona sus víctimas, engendra una raza capaz de sobrevivir únicamente en un medio acondicionado. Nuestros hijos nacen disminuidos en un mundo inhumano. El homo faber, de aprendiz de brujo, se transforma en basura voraz. La herramienta puede crecer en dos formas, sea para aumentar el poder del hombre o para reemplazarlo. En el primer caso, la persona conduce su propia existencia, tomando el control y la responsabilidad.

    En el segundo, es finalmente la máquina la que lo conduce: reduce a la vez la elección del operador y la del usuario-consumidor; luego les impone a los dos su lógica y sus exigencias. Amenazada por la omnipotencia de la herramienta, la supervivencia de la especie depende del establecimiento de pr ocedimientos que permitan a todo el mundo distinguir claramente entre estas dos ma neras de racionalizar y de emplear la herramienta, y, con ello, inciten a elegir la supervivencia dentro de la libertad. En el cumplimiento de esta tarea, hay tres obstáculo s que nos cierran el camino: la idolatría de la ciencia, la corrupción del lenguaje cotidia no y la devaluación de los procedimientos formales que estructuran la toma de decisiones sociales

    La convivencialidad. Ivan Illich

    Hoy traemos a este espacio el informe de The Open University titulado "Innovatig Pedagogy 2012" .. que nos presentan así

    The series of reports explores new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation.
    The first report proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not yet had a profound influence on education.  You can see a summary of each innovation at the menu on the right. Please contribute with comments on the report and the innovations.

    Su nota de prensa la teneis aquí:
    UK universities are missing opportunities to innovate in teaching according to a report published (23 July 2012) by The Open University.

    Innovating Pedagogy 2012 highlights ten new methods of teaching, learning and assessment that universities could adopt, including social learning with e-books, seamless learning and personal inquiry learning. Mike Sharples, Professor of Educational Technology and lead author of the report, said: “UK universities are facing competition from companies and overseas colleges that offer short courses using innovative teaching methods like MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). These are courses without boundaries that are attracting hundreds of thousands of students worldwide who watch live teaching from star professors and then share and discuss the ideas online.” Opportunities that should be exploited more include using online assessment to support learning by giving students automatic feedback on their progress, and for universities to work with companies in developing a new generation of e-books for learning, with facilities for students to watch multimedia presentations and simulations embedded in the text and to work in groups sharing notes between connected online books. The report also identifies innovations developed in other areas, such as computer games that could be adopted for university teaching. Badges, like computer versions of scout and guide badges, can provide a way to reward students who successfully gained a skill or provide useful help to their colleagues. Smartphones could also be used as scientific tools to carry out large scale science projects, such as measuring noise pollution or recording wildlife. The report also points to some areas where the UK is leading the way with new developments in teaching and learning. iSpot, developed by The Open University, has engaged many thousands of students and members of the public in forming an online scientific community to share their observations of wildlife, supported by expert mentors. The Open University is also developing multimedia e-books and using new methods of learning analytics to track how its 195,000 students study online, providing them with more immediate and personal advice. The Innovating Pedagogy 2012 report was published by The Open University on 23 July 2012

    The report has been written by a small group of academics in the Institute of Educational Technology and the Faculty of Mathematics, Computing and Technology at The Open University.
    The authors are:
    Mike Sharples, Patrick McAndrew, Martin Weller, Rebecca Ferguson, Elizabeth FitzGerald, Tony Hirst, Yishay Mor, Mark Gaved, Denise Whitelock

    The use of mobile devices for the consumption and use of Web content and services has grown steadily over the last few years and continues to do so, with analysts predicting that mobile will soon exceed the traditional desktop PC as the most common means users interact with the Web and other Internet services.
    This report looks at the growth of mobile, the state of the Web and gives an overview of approaches to delivering content and services optimised for the mobile context.
