One response to “The Future of Technology-Enhanced Education: Opportunities and Challenges”

  1. Manish Malik

    Amongst all this the future of TEL is in the Cloud.

    The Cloud gives control to people on their documents/work etc, it makes them publishers/authors/broadcasters etc. A spin of sharing and collaborative working added to the mix and we have what I call as the Cloud Learning environment. Here the control is shared between the learner and the facilitator or the academics .
    This is new, as the old institutional VLE (or virtual learning environments, kept most of the control with the institutions or the academics) and the PLEs (personal learning environments) did not quite provide a cohesive platform to bring different people together form different walks of life uniformly.

    An Example of that is my Exam revision site that taps into the students informal learning experience/practice. I blogged about it here
    And the resources is an Open access resource that can be accessed here:
