Don’t worry, this is a not a waffle about Busted or even the progression of my radio station. When I am writing this waffle I’m actually thinking about the year 2020, but I just couldn’t resist a reference to the BUSTED song. Why am I thinking about the year 2020 – well, we all know that technology and the way we learn is changing rapidly. Trying to predict what the technology will be like in a thousand years is virtually impossible although within education, we need to definitely engage with what the learners will be using within the next four to five years in order to ensure that we are ready to accommodate these changes within modules. So this waffle is all about what I think we should be preparing for in anticipation of the learners of 2020.
So this week’s waffle is about another section of the Horizon Report on Technology in Higher Education.The last time I waffled about this I focused on the Flipped Classroom – this week I’m going to focus on something which I really want to get more involved with – so grab those open badges, those actions and levels and prepared to be enjoy some gamification.
