“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

What research has to say for practice

Following on from JISC's daily pinta elearning, this set of guides from ALT is pretty spectacular, I have to say - a really good evidence-based introduction to many important areas of learning with technology. There are ten guides in all, as follows:

a) Tutoring on-line – Gilly Salmon and Mike Keppell

b) Web-based course design – Robin Mason and Frank Rennie

c) Learner acceptance of on-line learning and e-learning – Allison Littlejohn and Brian Whalley

d) Learning objects and repositories – Allison Littlejohn and John Cook

e) Learning using mobile and hand-held devices – Mike Sharples and Agnes Kukuluska-Hulme

f) On-line communities – Frank Rennie and Mike Keppell

g) Technology-supported assessment – David Nicol

h) Learning environments – Bob Banks and Gilly Salmon

i) Using social software in learning – Frances Bell and Frank Rennie

j) New Literacies – Doug Belshaw
