Dragon gate (Villa Borghese, Rome).
On Saturday I recommended the big MacArtur study, which shows that the web is becoming an important place for new forms of learning. Today, I am impressed Lorcan Dempsey’s post on The changing education experience.
But perhaps the largest surprise so far is the continuing value students place on face-to-face contact, despite the time they spend on the web. …
“Because web 2.0, Google, Wikipedia are all about being able to change things yourself, the expectations of learners change as a result of that,… There is a greater expectation from students that they are involved in the design of their education.” [Link]
Technology has … affected where and how they study, helped them collaborate with each other and broken down barriers between students and teachers, social life and study. It has also given students a greater voice in the way they learn. [Link]
This fits well with our LATINA principles.
