Digital learning (e-learning, if you must) has been with us for a while now, but the direction it’s taking us hasn’t always been clear. Now, at last, figures are emerging in the fog, and we can see where this is taking us. New techniques in teaching and learning, which take full advantage of the digital possibilities, and, as with other digital economies, a focus on the learner (‘user’) rather than the teacher of the school.
As with other digital media, we’re moving away from the linear and the long-form, to the bite-size and non-linear, with images more strongly to the fore.
But is this viewpoint, from Shift, too simplistic and too in love with the idea of digital disruption? Are schools not changing as much as Silicon Valley types would like to think they are? Is this hype or reality? Have your say in the comments below.
