Online Learning is Just as Effective as Traditional Education, According to a New MIT Study

Online Learning is Just as Effective as Traditional Education, According to a New MIT Study | 87android - a technology blog | Scoop.it

More than 7.1 million students are currently taking at least one online course. Despite the apparent popularity, however, educators have given the trend low marks.
But a new study from MIT suggests naysayers should think otherwise. Massive open online courses are not only effective, researchers have discovered, they are as effective as what's being traditionally taught in the classroom — regardless of how prepared or in the know students are.

Is Twitter Bad For Language? Statistical Analysis Says No (NEW BOOK)

Is Twitter Bad For Language? Statistical Analysis Says No (NEW BOOK) | 87android - a technology blog | Scoop.it

When you want to learn about how people write, their unpolished, unguarded words are the best place to start, and we have reams of them. There will be more words written on Twitter in the next two years than contained in all books ever printed. It’s the epitome of the new communication: short and in real time. Twitter was, in fact, the first service not only to encourage brevity and immediacy, but to require them. Its prompt is "What’s happening?" and it gives users 140 characters to tell the world. And Twitter’s sudden popularity, as much as its sudden redefinition of writing, seemed to confirm the fear that the Internet was “killing our culture.”

5 Educational Buzzwords That Are Losing Their Buzz - The Edublogger | 87android - a technology blog | Scoop.it

There will always be the latest pedagogical or technological trend in education. Whether it’s research-based or just the latest fad, educational buzzwords crop up at every education conference or professional development session.

Here are five educational buzzwords that I think have outlived their usefulness. It’s not that the core concepts themselves are bad, but rather that the term has been overused, overhyped, or we’ve just simply moved on.

321 free tools. It's an odd number, in more than one way. I cannot imagine the work to compile this list nor the work involved to determine which of these tools might be best suited for a teacher and his or her classroom. Of course, this list is only the beginning of possibilities.
