e-Learning: How Teaching and Training Methods Changed in the Last 20 Years

  • Alfredo M. Ronchi
Chapter

Abstract

The introduction provides the evolution of the scenario and some recent trends. The following part of the chapter describes the effects of this environment on young generations and, in more detail, the educational benefits and drawbacks. In the last 30 years many things changed. Pioneers and curious explorers of the digital domain left the arena to digital immigrants and more recently digital natives have come on stage. Teachers and Professors, mainly belonging to the digital immigrants community, are training people who have grown up with smart phones, the Internet and the social web. Is it really so evidently a different mind-set? Do we need to re-train trainers? How can we bridge the gap between the traditional way of thinking and the huge set of opportunities offered by the information age? Is creativity only constrained by our imagination?

The European state of the art as It appears from statistics. The digital revolution and other trends. The human capital and ICT bottelnecks. ICT and the young, dealing with “digital natives”, some key aspects of computing that make the difference. Causes and effects: The origin of this pandemia. Any Concern, Drawbacks? Educational Institutions Policies. Gamification and Virtual Laboratories; improvements due to technology; It Is Time to Reshape Educational Methodology. Future Developments.
