Open the website

Our highest hope for schooling is teaching students to think critically; we don’t want them just to learn factual content, we want them to evaluate and integrate what they read and learn. That’s more challenging in the Internet era, with tidal waves of accurate and inaccurate information; how much the more so today, with so many students working independently. In this talk I will explain, from a cognitive perspective, the difficulty of getting students to evaluate information. I will suggest curricular and instructional strategies to address these difficulties.

As e-learning becomes ever-more widespread, online educators are being required to design learning experiences that engage and meet the needs of very diverse learners. This course, developed by The Open University’s Institute of Educational Technology, explores four myths: that learning design is about technology and content; that innovation and accessibility are incompatible; that researching online learning is an ethics-free zone, and that educators’ online identities are irrelevant.
