Nuevo servicio de Google Meet Oppia bloqueado para CUBA

Mi fotoBy Raidell Avello Martínez. Nuevamente he sido privado de acceder a un servicio de Google a causa del injusto bloqueo de EUA a nuestra hermosa isla de CUBA.
Luego de leer esta noticia: "Meet Oppia, Google’s New Open Source Project That Allows Anyone To Create An Interactive Learning Experience" promovida en el blog de Stephen Downes intenté acceder al nuevo servicio y he recibido el siguiente mensaje:
We're sorry, but this service is not available in your country (CUBA). Més...

Today's eLearning: Michael Allen & Experts Say "Enough is Enough"

Serious eLearning ManifestoWorking diligently, a band of well-known learning industry authors have said “enough is enough” with the state of today's elearning. While there are a few shining examples of instructional design, a large percentage of elearning created today is woefully inadequate. Instead of deep and meaningful learning, most elearning encourages learners to stay away in droves, unless of course the training is mandatory. Many elearning developers and designers say they want to do better, but struggle to put that desire into practice. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Michael Allen, along with learning experts Julie Dirksen, Clark Quinn, and Will Thalheimer, has decided it’s time to be disruptive! “For many years, the four of us have been deeply concerned about the state of elearning,” states Will Thalheimer. “We’ve talked about it, lamented it, grumbled to each other, and wondered how things might change. Finally, we have decided to do something about it. The Serious eLearning Manifesto is the result.”
They collectively established in The Serious eLearning Manifesto what they believe is required to use instructional technology as professionals and to earn the right to absorb the learner’s time. The Manifesto is based upon what research and theory says, as well as what experience has taught them. More...

Les Rencontres du FFFOD sur les nouvelles façons d'apprendre sont en ligne

Logo de l'Agence Régionale de la Formation tout au long de la vie (ARFTLV Poitou-charentes)Les 11e Rencontres du FFFOD ont eu lieu à Caen les 6, 7 et 8 novembre 2013 sur le thème "Nouvelles façons d’apprendre, nouveaux usages numériques, nouvelle économie pour la formation". De multiples propositions et ressources numériques (vidéos, discussions, débats, textes...) viennent enrichir la formation jusqu'à la transformer. Les avancées de la science, notre meilleure connaissance du cerveau et de son fonctionnement interrogent aussi le processus d'apprentissage et les nouveaux environnements numériques. Ces rencontres étaient l'occasion pour plusieurs personnalités de débattre sur des questions telles que "Quelles sont ces avancées scientifiques ?", "Comment les nouvelles technologies s'en imprègnent ou pas ?", "Comment les formateurs peuvent-ils en tirer parti ?".
Les vidéos séquencées des ces Rencontres sont désormais en ligne sur le site du FFFOD. On y retrouve conférences et débats tels que "MOOC : nouveaux visages de l’autoformation", "Qu’est-ce que les neurosciences apportent aux pédagogues ?", "Numérique : transformation des modalités d’apprentissage et des modèles économiques ?", "Le cerveau attentif", etc.

Online and There Is No Choice

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/blog_landing/public/provost.jpg?itok=k-3W3N__By Herman Berliner. In a recent consultant’s report, in a section where the discussion focused on online degree programs, the report noted that 34% of the master’s degrees in education are earned through online education.  I’m not surprised and I fully expect that this number will exceed 50% within the next five years.  What is surprising to me is that there is still so much resistance to this inevitable trend.  More than a decade ago, I began regularly talking about the need for part-time graduate programs to move into a distance learning mode.  There was not surprisingly substantial resistance.  The key to this resistance is the legitimate fear that you lose the personal interaction so important to gaining the maximum educational benefit.
