Exploiting e-Learning in Future Teachers’ Education Ivan Kalať et al. Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia

Challenge and imperative How to make productive use of e-Learning support in future teachers’ education?

• what is ...... e-Learning? • what is ...... productive support? • how does .... e-Learning fit into teachers’ eduction?

2/17


What is e-Learning? Many forms and interpretations, many concepts and approaches computer assisted learning, CAL computer-based training, CBT web-based learning, WBL web-based training, WBT blended learning on-line learning open and distance learning, ODL computer supported collaborative learning, CSCL • learning management system, LMS

• • • • • • • •

3/17


We will distinguish 3 stages of e-Learning • e-Learning support • blended learning • on-line lerning

4/17


What is ... productive support? • be more attractive, more efficient, • be modern, appropriate for 21st century, corresponding to expectations and needs of the “digital world”

How does e-Learning fit into teachers’ education? ...into which teaching forms? How?

5/17

• (traditional) lecture, • Illustrative lecture with interactions, • practice, • seminar, • workshop

Characterizing each teaching form within our “metric system” (system of perspectives, indicators and values) Example (observe different “spaces for opportunities”): Illustrative lecture with interactions

9/17


lecture

Characterizing different e-Learning forms e-Learning support

blended learning

11/17

on-line learning


Matching forms against forms‌ Let us match (overlay) each teaching form against each form of e-Learning Example:

12/17

illustrative lecture with interactions + on-line form


Interesting Findings 1/3

13/17

• integrating any form of e-Learning into traditional lecture is not possible, • => transform traditional lecture into illustrative lecture with interactions, • blended learning can be easily integrated into any teaching form except traditional lecture


Interesting Findings 2/3 How to integrate on-line learning‌

on-line + illustrative lecture with interactions 14/17

on-line + practice


Interesting Findings 3/3

on-line + semimar

on-line + workshop

• the most productive match results from applying on-line learning with seminars (the largest space of opportunities) 15/17


Conclusion • no exact answers to the hazy questions, • this approach helps us identify productive and critical indicators for integration, • it helps us to rethink future teachers education. When we talk about computers in education, we should not think about a machine having an effect. We should be talking about the opportunity offered us, by this computer presence, to rethink what learning is all about, to rethink education. S. Papert 1987, Sofia 16/17
