Ubiquitous Learning

I recently completed e-Learning Ecologies: Innovative Approach to Teaching & Learning for the Digital Age from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Coursera.  From this course, I learned about the 7 affordances of technology in education which can be found below. Cope & Kalantzis believe that these affordances allow us to use technology to move from didactic pedagogy to truly transformative 21st century learning.

As the new Director of the ILC, I chose the theme Ubiquitous Learning to guide the activities that the center will be launching over the next few months. Certainly, our millennial students are able to learn anything, anytime and anywhere and we as teachers are playing catch up. The ILC is committed to helping the faculty of UP Manila take advantage of available educational technology to make ubiquitous learning a reality on campus.

I am excited to collaborate with the faculty! Email me at icisiptan@up.edu.ph or tweet me @endocrine_witch for any concerns.
