If you want to get rich, let's just say teaching is not the career. Make that wasn't the career. Deanna Jump is turning such thinking upside-down. She's a millionaire, and teaching got her there.

Arizona State and edX Will Offer an Online Freshman Year, Open to All – The Ticker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Arizona State and edX Will Offer an Online Freshman Year, Open to All – The Ticker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | aect | Scoop.it
Arizona State University is joining with the MOOC provider edX in a project that it says “reimagines the freshman year” and opens a new low-cost, low-risk path to a college degree for students anywhere in the world.
Tim Boileau's insight:

Based on our collective experience with FYE and UC, I think there is a small percentage of freshmen with the discipline to be successful by completing all of their gen ed classes in a MOOC learning space. On the other hand, as virtual instruction continues to proliferate in the K-12 space, I believe that we need to be open to a new paradigm for delivering general education content.

The Difference Between Skilled Learners and Good Students - InformED | aect | Scoop.it

The skilled learners of the world don't always excel in their studies. And I don't mean Gates and Einstein. I'm talking about the huge number of people who are assionate about knowledge, who have a real knack for remembering facts, who are self-taught musicians and casual scholars.

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web | aect | Scoop.it

While the Internet has given educators access to a steady supply of Open Educational Resources, the educational rubrics commonly shared on the Web are generally in the form of static, non-semantic presentational documents or in the proprietary data structures of commercial content and learning management systems.

 

With the advent of Semantic Web Standards, producers of online resources have a new framework to support the open exchange of software-readable datasets. Despite these advances, the state of the art of digital representation of rubrics as sharable documents has not progressed. This paper proposes an ontological model for digital rubrics. This model is built upon the Semantic Web Standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), principally the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL).

Quadrant D tasks push students to their intellectual edges while engaging them in authentic and meaningful work.

The motto of TED—ideas worth spreading—appropriately encapsulates the value behind these talks for your classroom. By bringing together the best and brightest in a broad spectrum of fields, TED helps us pause and listen to the percolation of ideas in fields we may know little about like art, engineering, technology, music, and more.
