Traditional face-to-face higher education will become a privilege of a few

In the coming weeks I’ll meet a number of researchers who are working in ICT, learning and innovation from the University of Granada. In preparation, I’m compiling some resources and documentation that I hope will be useful for them. Here some early conclusion of resources that hope will be interesting for those who are exploring new frameworks and trends to understand the changing scenarios of education but particularly on learning and distributed knowledge practices. Please note that some of the resources enclosed linked a pdf.

  1. Educational institutions might lost their exclusivity in terms of high quality content delivering [http://tiny.cc/TEDcoursera]
  2. The definition of relevant skills need to be defined/updated not-only by education institutions (other stakeholders need to have a voice) [http://tiny.cc/CEDEFOPtypology]
  3. We need to invest more in professional development (and more time to collaborate). More resources are needed not only meet the learning standards but exceed them [http://tiny.cc/kahncritique]
  4. Learning cannot be understood as passing an exam but as an never-ending, social, and organic timeless process [http://tiny.cc/AugmentedLearning]
  5. There is no correlation (so far) between the kind of technology and the type quality of learning outcomes [http://tiny.cc/PisaOecd]
  6. Face to face education will be particularly for the privileges students (the rest might tend to take massive education). [http://tiny.cc/PewInternet]
  7. A more flexible approach is required in term of knowledge/skills/literacies validation [http://tiny.cc/UNESCOaccreditation]
  8. Not only open sources is needed (open hardware but primarily open knowledge) [http://tiny.cc/WhyOpen]
  9. Open does not only mean for free. Today open means a more diverse distribution of tasks (curation, founding, distribution, etc.) [http://tiny.cc/TimeBusiness]
