Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a really good article, looking first at hopw technology is changing student expectations, and then second, in much more detail, at how technology is changing pedagogy. A number of trends are identified and described:

  1. Hybrid learning
  2. Collaborative approaches to the construction of knowledge/building communities of practice
  3. Use of multimedia and open education resources
  4. Increased learner control, choice, and independence
  5. Anywhere, anytime, any size learning
  6. New forms of assessment
  7. Self-directed and non-formal online learning

Examples are provided of each of these seven trends, including our Change11 MOOC as an example of the seventh.
