Learning in Context by George Siemens
These are some ideas taken from the PPT
- The focus is on how different learning needs require different approaches.
- Learning about, learning to do, learning to be, learning to transform “Know-where” is more important than “know-what” and “know-how”
- Learning approach (Multi-dimensional, Multi-faceted, Multi-contextual)
- Learning is a continual cycle, a process.
- Formal learning is good for initiating learners who are new (foundation building).
- Experience/Game-based Learning is good for real life challenges.
- Mentoring/Apprentice Learning is good for personal, relevant knowledge/learning.
- Performance Support Learning is good for short, focused learning.
- Self-Learning is good for exploring areas of personal interest.
- Community-based Learning is good for dialogue, diversity of perspective.
- Informal Learning is good for continual, ongoing, multifaceted.
- Schools need to transform/be transformed by a particular era/culture.
- Provide learners with knowledge skills to learn for life.
- Consider profile and needs of learners.
