Kunal Chawla of Udacity on New Ways to Learn Online



I am not so crazy about new ways I am although very cognizant of what we already know there has been a history of educational researchers that have come before us for decades who have thought about what good teaching and learning looks like ah ah not just in the classroom but in an online learning space Seymour Papert who was an educational researcher he's been talking about using computers to help people learn to code and code to learn since the 80s and even earlier than that um what we have to do as teachers and educators is understand and read what we already know about good teaching and learning practices ah and incorporate them not just into physical classrooms got into an online learning space so as I said we know learning happens in conversations um we know learning happens when you can think about how to break down a problem into smaller problems how do you take those ideas and incorporate that into an online learning space if you do that well the product is going to where the course is going to accomplish its goal which is to make learning happen and that's what I spend my time thinking about what do we know right now and then take inspiration from that and let that be our future rather than think about here's a new gadget or here's a new tool that's going to revolutionize the world what is going to revolutionize the world is being aware of what we already know
