Module 4 Case:
Your readings provide a good picture of the future of the technology-based learning environment. Based on the readings, you should be able to assess and explain the implications for your school or organization regarding its current and future technology-based learning endeavors. Also, you should be able to analyze how future learning events and activities will unfold for your learners.
Your final Case Assignment focuses on the issues surrounding the impact of future trends facing learners in a technology-based learning environment. Drawing from the Hall (2010) and van Dam (2012) articles, you must write a 4- to 5-page analytical essay which responds to the points below:
Be sure to synthesize, not merely summarize, material from the background readings. Cite all sources in APA format.
Module 4 SLP:
The Session Long Project for this course requires students to develop a Technology-Based Learning Compendium*. This compendium will consist of a series of web-based resources and scholarly readings addressing various aspects of technology-based learning. Think of a compendium as a list or a brief summary of a larger work that you are creating. Each entry in your compendium will contain detailed information – including an annotated bibliography, and analysis and synthesis of research data. As you continue your career you should add other resources as you discover them. This SLP should continue to expand beyond this course.
* Compendium = a brief summary of content related to a specific issue; a list or inventory of items related to a particular subject area.
The following topics will be included in your Compendium, and each topic will be completed as you progress through the five modules during the Session Long Project:
Module 1 – Current Trends in Technology-based Learning
Module 2 – Learner Readiness
Module 3 – Learning Management Systems
Module 4 – Future Learning Technologies
The following information will be presented for each module topic:
In accordance with the information above:
Provide an example of readiness for future technology-based learning in your organization.
You will need to respond to or evaluate three peer postings, with at least a 125-word response, which will cause you and your peers to generate creative ideas and concepts for your Case Assignment and SLP.
