Not too long ago, Pearson (the ginormous education company – yes it’s a technical term) put out a few really interesting videos about teachers who are shaking up online learning. They’re talking about innovation in online learning – and not the innovation that has driven new technologies. They’re talking about the type of innovation that changes how teachers teach, how learners learn, and how information is delivered and processed.
Each of the educators in the videos below have a unique approach to educating students in their virtual classrooms. Their video testimonials are inspiring, so check them out. Are you an online educator who is shaking up online learning? Tell us how in the comments!
