Multichannel Learning: Connecting All to Education.
Anzalone, Steve, Ed.
Drafted for the Learning Technologies for Basic Education project, this document assembles case studies which provide an overview of multichannel learning, or reinforce learning through the use of several instructional paths and various media including print, broadcast, and online. Through the cases, multichannel learning is depicted as an educational trend which is becoming socially and geographically widespread. The first section discusses the "building blocks" of multichannel learning in three essays: (1) "The Case for Multichannel Learning" (Stephen Anzalone); (2) "The Conceptual Foundations for Multichannel Learning" (Juliet SF. Chieuw & John K. Mayo); and (3) "Can New Technologies Lower the Barriers to Quality Education for All?" (Jan Visser). Cases in the second section concentrate on "pressure points in achieving education for all," specifically: (4) "Multichannel Learning for Nonformal Education in Developing Countries" (Tony Dodds); (5) "The Challenge of Open Secondary Education: Demand and Models" (Paud Murphy); (6) "Multichannel Solutions for Female Education: Focusing on Learning" (Andrea Bosch); and (7) "Multichannel Learning at the Community Level" (Michael Laflin and Micael Olsson). Section 3 is devoted to descriptions of multichannel learning applied in various situations or locales: (8) "Multichannel Learning: The Case of National Open School, India" (M. Mukhopadhyay); (9) Multichannel Learning: The Philippines Experience" (Minda Sutaria); (10) "South Africa: Designing Multichannel Options for Educational Renewal" (Stuart Leigh and others); (11) "Multichannel Approaches in the Multigrade Classroom" (German Vargas); and (12) "Dominican Republic: From the Margins to the Mainstream" (Elizabeth Goldstein and Altagracia Diaz de De Jesus).
