The Digital Learner


Views: 263


We can use digital media to prolong the life of old ways of learning - for instance, where the video-lecturing teacher, the monovocal e-textbook or the the bullet-pointed PowerPoint presentation transmit facts and concepts to (presumably) unknowing learners. How can we use the affordances of networked digital media to do something different? Can we imagine learning where the knowledge that learners bring to the table is also valued? Where learners' knowledge repertoires are extended as they actively make new knowledge? Which build collaborative knowledge cultures? In this learning module, we explore ways in which a "reflective pedagogy" can offer some practical answers to these questions.
