Improving Teaching and Learning in a Screen Captured World
Steve Gilbert interviews John Sener who offers the perspectives of author and parent; of observation, theory, and immersion. Sener is the author of this book about the influence of technology on the future of higher education AND the parent of a son who is now half-way through his freshman year of college.
Excerpts from book description:
“… digital technologies….are…redefining knowledge, redistributing access, and renegotiating authority — while education’s growing importance is changing expectations about its performance. This combination offers a spectacular opportunity to improve education….by various scenarios — Free Market Rules, Free Learning Rules, Standards Rule, Cyberdystopia, Steady As She Goes — whose influences would be disastrous in the extreme but can be beneficial in moderation. …Online learning …can also lead the way …Strategies for re-empowering learning and teaching, such as learning-centered engagement, learner-generated content, and sensible assessment can enhance the value of the interpersonal interactions which are at the heart of learning and teaching.”
