Over a long time – a lot of that I’d prefer to not count them, so let us say ‘from the beginning from the e-learning industry’ – I’ve attended countless conferences where learning technologists have mentioned that delivery technologies are irrelevant. What really matters would be that the learning materials are developed and designed consistent with recognized best practice in instructional design – whichever formula which are usually at that time.
The issue happens to be that, when that kind of statement is created – to general agreement as well as acclamation – everybody becomes sidetracked through the latest bit of learning delivery technology. Within the last twenty years, it has ranged from CD-ROM XA (does any readers keep in mind that?) to cloud-located mobile delivery.
So, is happy really king – or otherwise?
Within the United kingdom, i was treated for an interesting understanding of this a couple of days ago when news emerged that Promethean is just about the official interactive education technology partner from the Bloodhound SuperSonic Vehicle (SSC) Project.
Bloodhound team people have held the planet Land Speed Record within the last 26 many the present Bloodhound project aims to create and make the very first vehicle able to achieving 1,000 miles per hour. The 3 year project is brought by Richard Noble OBE and Wing Commander Andy Eco-friendly OBE, who set the present record of 763mph (1228kmh) in October 1997.
Promethean is going to be dealing with the Bloodhound SSC team to aid its worldwide education program and interact youthful individuals the science that underpins this concern. Based on global technology companies and universities, a vital objective for Bloodhound would be to inspire youthful individuals to pursue education and careers within the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Promethean is going to be installing its ActivClassroom technology in Bloodhound’s education centers, allowing the ‘classroom from the future’ and will also be equipping Bloodhound’s education ambassadors with relevant software and academic sources to be used in schools.
Over 3,500 secondary and primary schools, 200 further education colleges and 40 greater education institutions within the United kingdom have agreed to this program.
So – impressively – e-learning goes supersonic.
What’s intriguing relating to this story is it shows that, with regards to learning – ‘e’ or else – content is really king.
In the end, people will only want to consider the Bloodhound learning materials simply because they connect with a supersonic vehicle not since these learning materials are now being delivered via ‘ActivClassroom technology’. This can be a dose of reality that ‘learning technology freaks’ would prosper to consider to heart.
