Educational Sites Given Short Shrift by Students

Spending more time on fun and games than schoolwork


The Challenges on Pedagogy Shift

Teacher-center vs. Learner-center

Instruction vs. Learning

Classroom Learning Community vs. Virtual Learning Community


The Objects in eLearning

  • People
  • Content
  • Learning Community

The Shifts of Schooling

The community of learners are important resources and schools differ in their access to human intellectual resources.

Internet technology makes it feasible to exponentially increase the community of people involved in education.

Students can spend time teaching and learning from people who could not visit their class.


The New Roles for Teachers

Some of the most successful teachers use information technology in concert with a shift in the teacher's role from lecturer to mentor of student learning through inquiry.


The Challenges to Teachers in eLearning

  • Create Digital Content
  • Design Networked Learning Activities
  • Provide Learning Supports and Coaching
  • Learning Evaluation

The New Roles for Parents

In the K-12 context, many observers feel it is important to engage parents more in their children's learning. The combination of increased information technology use in classroom settings and the desire to increase parental involvement suggests that there is a need to train parents better in learning technologies and to provide parents better access to the technologies. Shared use of information technology can also lead to closer and more frequent communication between teacher and parent.


The Challenges to Parents in eLearning

1. Learning Companions

2. Learning Assistants and Facilitators

3. Security Supervisors


The Challenges to Students in eLearning

  • Active Learners
  • Partners in Collaborative Learning
  • Tutors and Feedback Providers
