Innovative Adult Learning with Innovative Technologies
Betty Collis, Gordon Davies
Elsevier, 1995 - Computers - 211 pages
Innovations in adult learning are a complex mix of pedagogy, technology, organisation, strategy and vision. In this book, 17 cases representing state-of-the-art design and practice from nine different countries are presented, grouped around the themes of I. Innovative Instrumentation. II. Innovations in Learner Collaboration and III. Innovations in Practice.While all of the cases deal with innovative instrumentation (software or combinations of software and communication technologies), the six cases in section I offer a detailed look at software packages designed for some aspect of the innovation of adult learning, such as reducing information overload by intelligent tools or using a World-Wide Web environment for communication and learning.In section II, a variety of ways to innovate adult learning through collaborative activities are described, including learning scenarios that make effective use of collaboration and the technology and instrumentation that make collaboration at a distance possible.Section III describes innovative learning situations that have been successfully integrated into broad scale field settings, each focusing on a particular situation in which innovative technologies play a part.
