Digital Learning Futures by Steve Wheeler


This is a great presentation delivered by Steve Wheeler at Learning Technologies 2012 in London’s Olympia on January 26, 2012. In his presentation, Steve discussed a number of possible scenarios for the adoption of digital technologies in education and training. He touched on many emerging technologies which I also think they have tremendous potentials in teaching and learning. Some of these include personal learning networks, mobile technologies, games and gamification, the use of social media in learning, the role of user generated content, the phenomenon of ubiquitous connection, and technological convergence.

One Response to Digital Learning Futures by Steve Wheeler

    好精采的分享,提及
    surface learning(data–Information) and Deep learning(knowledge–wisdom–Transformation)
    Knowledge :knowing that –Declorative — Cognition
    Wisdom: knowing how–Procedual –Application
    Transformation: knowing why –critical –Analysis–Evaluation

    特別見解–對於網路電動遊戲的見解
    when we play games we rapidly slove abstract problems in real time
    while being contionally assessed and often working collaberation
    New learners的特性
    more self-directed/better equipped to capture Information/more reliant on feed back from peers/more inclined to collaberation/more oriented toword being their own “nodes of production
    New learner必須具備能力是digital wisdom/digital literacies/e-safty
    真是經典的表述,我想這都是每位從事教育的老師必須從教育環境給予學生這些概念,同時在網路普及的現在,該認真思考透過課堂學習學生知道這網路世界真的除了電透與社群交友分享以萬,仍須運用智慧去選擇學習資訊並內化成個人的知識與能力,同時在網路上有許多陷阱要讓學生知道如何避免碰到,要能辨別好壞的網站,當然如果能將網路各種不同的web2.0網站分享與學生,相信可以讓他們知道其實網路有太多資源可以學習與分享、評論建構自己的知識體
