Open Education Pedagogies: Toward Ecosystem-based Theoretical Model of Learning and Communication in Educational Management
This paper aims to describe the conceptual framework of developing an ecosystem-based theoretical model of learning and communication in educational management affordable in a diversity of learning environments. It is founded on the interconnection of three topics in a global ecosystem of learning and communication, named the lifelong learner, open educational resources (OER), and the metaverse. A learning unit that "connects" biotic and abiotic components in a comprehensive whole is planned, developed, and supported by the investigation using the metasystems learning design theory as its conceptual framework. The usefulness of deep learning is increased by metacognitive knowledge and experience. Hypothetical, by metacognitive experience the student(s) may be better at acting as an important stimulus, either real or virtual, and differentiating important from non-important concepts if they will be able to link ideas across multiple degrees of complexity. The results showed that learning design with metacognitive tasks cannot be achieved without cognitive and affective tasks. Metacognitive experience and active stimulus helped the students to acquire new knowledge and practical skills and reduce misconceptions in a diversity of learning environments. To increase the efficiency of the ecosystem model it is recommended to increase the number of metacognitive tasks.
