Not the Same Old Game "Anything that can be done in the classroom can be done on the Web. E-learning can be ordered and delivered online, anyplace, anytime. Students can take a course with them on an airplane or to the beach in a laptop. They learn at their own pace." Elizabeth Tomaszewicz, president and CEO of Teach.com
E-learning is Just a Buzz Word “E-learning is just a buzz word because it is new. When they just call it learning, we will know we were successful.” Wayne Hodgins, AutoDesk Futurist
Overhype and Underhype "This e-learning trend is being overhyped today and underhyped for its impact on our future. E-learning will become a routine part of our lives in the future.” Clark Aldrich, an analyst with Gartner Group in Stamford, Conn.

Arthur C. Clarke said... Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing video displays, let me remind you that information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.

What can schools do? The SIMS and Tom Snyder Soda Constructor Web based learning WebQuests
Build your world and meet your neighbors • The real power of the web is not in the information stored online • People are the real power of the Internet • Mailing Lists http://www.topica.com/ • http://edweb.gsn.org/lists.html • Ask the Experts
Using the Web with Students • Use it to support what you already do well • Don’t reinvent the wheel • Start with Kathy Schrock’s pageshttp://discoveryschool.com/schrockguide/ • Pac Bell’s Blue Web’Nhttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/bluewebn
Designing Goal-based Web Activities • Design with goals in mind • Who knows the content or motivation your students need better than you? • Working the Web for Educationhttp://www.ozline.com/learning/theory.html • Filamentalityhttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/fil • Web-and-Flow http://www.web-and-flow.com
Selecting the Activity • Openly explore a topichttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/China/hotlist.html • Helping students acquire knowledge or getting students to care more about the topic suggests Treasure/Knowledge Hunthttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/BHM/hunt.html • If you want to add affective connections try a subject samplerhttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/China/sampler.html
Advanced Goal-based Design • Reflective or metacognative writinghttp://www.web-and-flow.com/members/awolinsk/migrants/reflector.htm • WebQuests are the prototype for web based transformational curriculumhttp://edweb.sdsu.edu/webquest/webquest.htmlhttp://www.ozline.com/webquests • The first WebQuest published to general use remains the standard. Searching for China by Tom Marchhttp://www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/China/ChinaQuest.html
Pursuing Transformation • It's not easy to prompt higher-order thinking • Older students are no better prepared for change than teachers • Prompting transformative thinking seems an unnatural act • WebQuests are use a two stage process: first we help students develop expertise, then we foist them into a scenario that forces new use of that expertise
Taking Off the Training Wheels • As you use things like WebQuests you develop your coaching skills. • Teacher centric learning becomes student centered. • Focus on metacognition builds student skills • Students become problem solvers and take learning into their own hands as in the greatest WebQuest I never plannedhttp://www.srsd.org/etajima
