In this week we got the activity to "post expressing trends and patterns that you feel are most significant in their impact on teaching, learning, and education." Therefore I read the proposed blogposts from Rita Kop "PLEs and the Extended Web", George Siemens "The xWeb" and Steve Wheeler "Web 3.0: the way forward?". It's not neccessary to write a conclusion about them because you can find the important topics in a blogpost from Stefanie Panke ("Web XXO - Week Three of Plenk2010 on Emerging Technologies").
What do I think about the trends and their impacts on learning? At work we are discussing a lot about mobile technologies and therefore also about mobile learning. In my mind learning is currently changing by the use of mobile technologies. They give the possibility to look something up directly when it's needed, you can make use of them when you have a little time slot, you can use them everywhere. They are affordable, easy to use and you can get internet access whereever you are (at least in Germany). They offer possibilities to read a paper or watch a film, to listen to an audio file, to make notes, to get further information and to collaborate. It's possible to take your whole learning ressources (e.g. a lot of thick books) with you without the need of a camper ;-)
Therefore the mobile technologies have the most impact on teaching, learning, and education in my mind.
