Blended learning is defined by these characteristics:
A portion of the learning is delivered with digital or online media.
Some of the learning is student-directed in terms of time, pace, path, and place.
It provides a learning experience that is appealing and that delivers successful learning outcomes.
Recently I put together this video as a 'Thinkpiece' for the CSU theme of 'Leadership for innovation in Learning and Teaching'
I talk about the use of terms to help align with the goals of being global, connected and 'flat' while learning and describe the evolution from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy, the development of peeragogy and then my own term 'cosmogogy

From Jackie Gerstien, based on the work of Jon Andrews
- Traditionally, Pedagogy was defined as the art of teaching children and Andragogy as teaching adults. These definitions have evolved to reflect teacher practices. As such, andragogical and heutagogical practices can be used with children and youth.
The digital world is a vast expanse of learning and entertainment. But it is in this digital world that kids are also exposed to many risks, such as cyberbullying, technology addiction, obscene and violent content, radicalization, scams and data theft. The problem lies in the fast and ever evolving nature of the digital world, where proper internet governance and policies for child protection are slow to catch up, rendering them ineffective.Moreover, there is the digital age gap. The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.So how can we, as parents, educators and leaders, prepare our children for the digital age? Without a doubt, it is critical for us to equip them with digital intelligence.
Blog post addressing teacher development by Jackie Gerstein
- My beliefs around teacher professional development are that it should be:
driven by the teacher, him or herself.
based on change models which result in deep, meaningful, lasting changes.
