The Ethics and Responsibilities of the 21st Century Classroom: Part One | Contemporary Literacies | Scoop.it

When I think about the “ethics and responsibilities of the 21st century classroom,” I think not only about our ethical responsibilities toward students but about our ethical responsibilities toward teachers.

The Evolution of Online Education Technologies—Infographic| The Committed Sardine | schooX.com | Contemporary Literacies | Scoop.it

Rasmussen College submitted this infographic to Visual.ly recently of how online education technology has come into its own in the digital age. Going as far back as the early 1700's, you really get a sense of just how far we've come from then to today's exponential times in the fields of distance learning and online education, which are gaining in widespread popularity.
