Four Big Ideas for What's Next
This presentation will explore four emerging concepts that reimagine the dynamics of learning. Digital badges reinvent the idea of a grade and how they can capture learning in all of its forms. Mobile devices, especially tablets, provide a virtual "second screen" that is an interactive companion to boring lectures. Insights gained from analyzing large data sets, so-called big data, have the potential to fuel new forms of in-depth interactions. And isn't it time that we move beyond e-books to build experiences instead of content? This presentation will explore practical scenarios where these concepts have been put into practice as well as ideas for future directions.
OUTCOMES: Critically evaluate four emerging technologies and their impact on teaching and learning * Identify different approaches to using digital badges as part of formal and informal learning * Compare techniques for implementing alternative mobile learning technologies with students and faculty * Evaluate online interactions that could be enabled through analytics * Identify typical challenges associated with publishing content to mobile devices
