The eLC monthly recommendation is a compilation of several e-Learning and ICT experts articles. On the current issue we will take a look over some of the latest Instructional Design and Educational skills such as the use of Gamification in teacher development, some tips to reduce cognitive load, Educational Technology and the importance of applying technology to education (and no the other way around) and the changing educational landscape.
We have also focused our attention on some future technological trends such as the Anticipatory Design applied to the Personalized Experiences, eLearning trends, Machine Learning and the AI developments which hope to help in the dehumanized programmatic issues. It is important also to highlight the shift towards a more Project Based Learning around IoT, 4IR technologies and the adaptation of school curriculums together with the transformation of education through EdTech.
To end the montlhy recommendation, we have selected a pair of articles regarding Higher Education Institutions: Bryan Alexander review on NMC Horizon Report and University World News’ one on GUNi‘s sixth Higher Education in the World report.
