Following Megan Conners Murtaugh's post in memory of Dr. Yusra Laila Visser, here's a brief video clip of Yusra speaking about the importance of failure as an opportunity for learning.
We (the Learning Development Institute) are setting up a research fund in Yusra's name to encourage research on relevant aspects of human learning that currently get little to no attention in the literature, basically because most learning is still seen as taking place in formal schooling and training contexts. Such formal settings are not necessarily the ones where most meaningful learning takes place. Yusra contributed greatly to our research and thinking about the meaning of learning.
Drop me a line ([email protected]) if you are interested in contributing to and/or seek to be associated with the Yusra Laila Visser Research Fund.

I am pleased to announce a new edited volume from the #AECT Summer Symposium. "Educational Technology Beyond Content: A New Focus for Learning." https://bit.ly/38uZlPY
Available to AECT members at no cost: https://bit.ly/38DhivN
ABSTRACT:
This book is the outcome of a research symposium sponsored by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology [AECT]. Consisting of twenty-four chapters, including an introduction and conclusion, it argues that informational content should not be the main element of education, and that to provide more for learners, it is necessary to go beyond content and address other skills and capabilities. It also discusses the false premise that learning is complete when the information is known, not when learners seek more: their own directions, answers, and ideas. The authors assert that the ability to synthesize, solve problems and generate ideas is not based on specific content, although education often focuses solely on teaching content. Further, they state that content can be separated from the learning process and that instructional design and educational technology must be about the skills, habits, and beliefs to be learned.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that we’ve recently released the 2020 Typology of Free Web-based Learning Technologies on the Educause website. The Typology contains 226 free technologies arranged into 40 types and 15 clusters that educators can use to promote more productive and interactive learning. Brief descriptions, example tools and pedagogical uses are provided for each category, in order to support ease of conceptualization and application. The 2020 Typology is compared to the 2015 Typology (available from the same site), making it possible to gauge changes in the learning technology landscape over time and infer future trends.

To download the new 2020 Typology of Free Web-based Learning Technologies please go to: https://library.educause.edu/resources/2020/4/typology-of-free-web-based-learning-technologies

I’m hoping that the Typology might be particularly useful at the moment for educators who are making the rapid transition to online teaching due to COVID-19.

Feedback appreciated and please pass this on to anyone who you think might be interested!
