Many concepts applied in blended and online education are often
adopted based on commonly held beliefs and unproven theories, even at
institutional level. Ideas like digital natives, problem-based learning,
learning styles, brain use and MOOCs; which of these ed-tech related
ideas are supported by evidence based research? In this presentation I
will challenge some widely adopted practices. Should we follow these
ideas as we utilise educational technologies? If not, what should we, as
Moodle users, do instead?
