Podcast PD: Screencasting, the Future of Education

In traditional schools, students move at the pace of the clock and calendar. What might school be like if the progression of time mattered less to the pace of student learning? This practice-minded course ruminates on what changes are needed in the classroom to prepare for the future of effective, student-focused education. You will also discover Loom as a tool to create classroom friendly screencasts and construct demonstrative videos. This course is part of the Podcast PD series.

In this course, you will:

  • Discover the informal learning experience of listening to podcasts in a formalized course setting,
  • Demonstrate the instructional affordances of Loom technology and possible classroom application,
  • Distinguish personalized professional learning and its benefits from traditional professional development, and
  • Predict what the future of learning might look like and construct an educational model.
