The Open University UK started a serie reports about innovating pedagogy:
The series of reports explores new forms of teaching, learning and assessment for an interactive world, to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation.
The first report deals with 10 innovations that are already here, but are not used on a large scale. The 10 innovations they discuss are:
- New pedagogy for e-books
- Publisher-led short courses
- Assessment for learning
- Badges to accredit learning
- Rebirth of academic publishing
- Seamless learning
- Learning analytics
- Personal inquiry learning
- Rhizomatic learning
Personally I like the term "seamless learning". This is connecting learning across settings, technologies and activities:
Seamless learning is when a person experiences a continuity of learning across a combination of locations, times, technologies or social settings. Such learning may be intentional, such as when a learning activity starts in a classroom then continues through an informal discussion with colleagues, or online at home. It can also be accidental, for example when an interesting piece of information from a newspaper or television programme sparks a conversation with friends. Seamless learning can be a collective or an individual process. It can extend across time and locations, offer ubiquitous access to learning resources, encompass physical and digital worlds, engage multiple types of device, and integrate different approaches to teaching and learning.
The report is easy to read and also for me it included new and interesting information. Download the report here.
