I get asked, ‘What do you think eLearning is?’ all the time on my travels and it’s been great PD for me to have these conversations. It’s a concept that’s evolving almost as fast as the technology that’s driving it (both in terms of the tools that provide the learning ‘opportunities‘ and also the societal factors that make it ‘imperitive‘)- and it’s an understanding that’s CRUCIAL for teachers to make the paradigm shift from a tradition mode of teaching to a modern one.
Here’s a slideshow (by Jacqui Sharpe) that makes a great attempt to define it as it stands at the moment. I hope it will be used as resource to help us define the concept for ourselves.
The question for us is, ‘How could it look it MY class?’ – What’s you next step?
