Here are the challenges that face our faculty today:
- Students who have access to smartphones and high-speed Internet may be distracted by a bombardment of quick and often shallow information.
- Students who do not have access could fall behind through no fault of their ability to learn.
- Faculty expectations and practices are changing at many institutions because Web 2.0 learning technologies are continuously evolving.

Education technology is riddled with temptations and false promises. But if you ask Mark Brown, a professor and director of the National Institute for Digital Learning at Dublin City University in Ireland, problems such as falling for hype around new technology is an absolute moral dilemma. He’s caved in before. “I have a personal confession,” Brown admitted in his keynote address at OLC Innovate happening this week in New Orleans. “I am a very big sinner.”
As Women’s History Month comes to a close, let’s turn our attention to 10 women scholars making their mark as champions of connected learning. (Connected learning calls for broadened access to learning that is socially embedded, interest-driven and oriented toward educational, economic or political opportunity. It is based on evidence that the most resilient, adaptive and effective learning involves individual interest as well as social support.) As connected learning advocates, these 10 scholars, among a number of others worldwide, argue that new media broadens access to opportunity and meaningful learning experiences that can happen anytime, anywhere. They are studying and finding ways to mobilize learning technologies in equitable, innovative and learner-centered ways.
