"This week's offering is from the Open University: "Innovating Pedagogy 2013". Seems it's been out for a month or so... but I've only just tripped over it. I'm thinking it could be useful to refer others to for sake of simpler sharing of some bigger ideas.
It's is a 42 page report from a series that...
"...explores new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation. This second report updates proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not yet had a profound influence on education."
- MOOCs - Massive open online courses
- Badges to accredit learning - Open framework for gaining recognition of skills and achievements
- Learning analytics - Data-driven analysis of learning activities and environments
- Seamless learning - Connecting learning across settings, technologies and activities
- Crowd learning - Harnessing the local knowledge of many people
- Digital scholarship - Scholarly practice through networked technologies
- Geo-learning - Learning in and about locations
- Learning from gaming - Exploiting the power of digital games for learning
- Maker culture - Learning by making
- Citizen inquiry - Fusing inquiry-based learning and citizen activism
So... Seems interesting? Certainly connects to several local and current think/energy/action spaces. (Cite badges, analytics...) Take a peek in a spare moment. Or print it out [ =:-o ]
Somehow reminds me of the style of the (also rather nice) "7 things about..." series from EduCause. Probably just because it's brief. And friendly/accessible. See http://www.educause.edu/research-and-publications/7-things-you-should-know-about If you haven't been there before, you may find some value there too."
