Thinking about eLearning

14 Apr

eLearning offers educators and students alike opportunities for creating meaningful learning environments. eLearning enables different types of social interaction, provide ready access to information and can overcome some of the difficulties presented by time and space. Students and teachers alike can create new materials and new knowledge with the media tools now available to them. These tools are constantly evolving as individuals and companies create and refine new software.

Including eLearning in teaching and learning requires a re-conceptualization of the curriculum and how it can be taught. Using eLearning to simply replace blackboards with whiteboards and pens with computers and word processors does not constitute a re-conceptualization of teaching and learning, nor the nature of school education. Bluntly PowerPoint is not eLearning. Such an approach will not support students to ‘learn, unlearn, and relearn’. I read somewhere this year that eLearning is just a tool to improve pedagogy.
