Free-range Thoughts

Marinating in the Mooc

I think the most succinct and current answer I’ve found comes from Gartner Group, the technology think tank, consultancy. Yes, they do cover education among their many areas of expertise.

They make the case for a shift from:

Technology Integration (into curriculum) >     Curriculum Integration (enabled by technology)

Curriculum Integration enabled by technology brings together fragmented resources to address multidisciplinary studies.

Gartner: “…curriculum integration represents the transformation of education through the establishment of an alternative form of curriculum that has resulted from the integrated nature of the connected environment.”

This idea incorporates open education neatly.
