This seventh report proposes ten innovations, many of which are currently implemented but have not yet had a profound influence on education. To produce the report, a group of academics from The Open University collaborated with researchers from Norway’s Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology.
From a long list of new educational terms, theories and practices, this short list of ten innovations has the potential to bring about major changes in educational practice.
As online education continues to grow, many schools are making online education a major part of their curriculum. To help students understand this trend, the guide also includes a detailed breakdown of online learning methods and technologies, as well as information on how to identify quality online schools or programs.
The guide looks at Khan Academy, Coursera and MIT OpenCourseware specifically and includes advice and keys to success from a panel of online learning experts.
What is the best way to learn/teach programming/coding?
It isn’t easy to teach and learn online technical subjects such as programming. In my opinion, you need to change the learning paradigm by:
transferring the student the learning responsability for their own learning,
Giving help with with good web based tools and
leading and supporting students progress.
Codecademy offers learn to code interactively, for free.
“We do not want to open up universities. We want to open up knowledge. Everyone knows something they can teach someone else and we want to help them do it. Our community has created tens of thousands of courses and taken millions of courses. At this point, more than a billion lines of code have been submitted to Codecademy.”
