30 Academic Resources on Learning - InformED

Many of us read blogs about learning and discuss the learning process with our colleagues, but few of us actually bother keeping up with the latest science.

Center for 21st Century Universities

Center for 21st Century Universities | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
The Center for 21st Century Universities (C21U) is Georgia Tech's living laboratory for fundamental change in higher education. As higher education rapidly evolves, Georgia Tech is committed to leading the initiatives that will define the next generation of educational practices and technologies. Working in tandem with campus administrators and faculty, the center develops and tests new educational platforms and techniques.


Today, traditional colleges and universities face escalating operational challenges, including reduced funding, changing student demographics, questions regarding quality and value, and increased competition. Their success—or more bleakly, their survival—requires transformative change to enable new teaching and learning approaches. By testing educational techniques in actual classrooms, C21U develops proven technology-driven solutions that result in optimal student outcomes through creative institutional change. Combining technological solutions with practice and process modifications, C21U leverages beneficial industry and educational connections, offering important first steps toward defining the university of the 21st century.

Research: Teachers Say Tech Distractions More Concerning than Privacy, Security -- Campus Technology | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
"With this study we wanted to discover how educators around the world perceive the technology they and their students use on a daily basis," said Jared Stein, vice president of research and education at Instructure, in a prepared statement. "It is enlightening to find that the most pressing concern among educators was distraction, outranking issues like privacy and security. While privacy and security are critical issues, these findings suggest teachers are focused on how, not whether, technology should be used."

Learning about learning: What every teacher needs to know - David Didau: The Learning Spy | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
When I trained to be teacher I was told little or nothing about how children learn. Because a lot of what we intuitively suppose about the process of learning is often flatly contradicted by cognitive science this was a huge handicap. Since you can’t think about stuff you don’t know, I spent all my time pontificating on the process
