To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | 21st century education | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Lets turn students into content creators instead of consumers where love of learning supersedes assessment!

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | 21st century education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.


The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.


Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
