Education and Internet
While researching for actuell topics, I found an interesting site, “Mashable.com” – which expresses in an excellent way, how technologie/media (here the web2.0) can be used as an efficient tool to stay informed and to concentrate on topics, without having to search “the whole web”.
e.g. – here you can follow topics concerning: education, online-education, infographics … give it a try!
What I found especially interesting was this infographic, about how internet influences (or can/could??) influence education. It says: “Internet has enabled a revolution, transforming traditional educational institutes and E-Learning organzisations to a new-era organization offering a whole new way of lerning for free”
BUT: What about the preconditions? What about devolopment-stages necessery to be able to learn selforganizised? What about whole countries/continents far away from “Internet for all”?
This is excactly what I mean by speaking about the necessity to combine multidisciplinary sciences and theories when searching new solutions and modells.
Internet IS a great tool, and yes, it has the potential to change the way we learn. But – speaking of “revolutionizing education” should not ignore a majority of about 4/5 of the worlds population, who are not “online”. It should at least be mentioned …
So – first find the Graphic via http://www.onlineeducation.net/ found on http://mashable.com/2011/06/11/online-education-infographic/
and to underline the above arguments, an other graphic, which explains better than words can do, that “global is relativ” – a chapter from my bachelor thesis – which I will publish and discuss within the next weeks.
I would be glad, if you join the discussion!

Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand
Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
I appreciate you finding the time and energy to
