Reviving Teaching With 'Professional Capital' | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
The truth about the more successful countries, such as Finland, Singapore, and Canada, is that they develop the whole profession to the point where students encounter good teachers one after another.

For the Single Founder Who Can't Code - TechCrunch | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
When I was recruiting people to help build Undrip, I could have just dazzled people with designs. For many folks, that’s all you need to help inspire. But I wanted to take things up a notch. I wanted to personally build something that potential teammates could see, feel, touch and play with. So I had to learn to code.

Before the computer could change School, School changed the computer

We owe it to our children to stop and seriously question whether technology and hyper-personalization should drive our education reforms.

Learning What Is Untaught — Tagoras

Without room for implication, without some assembly required, your education is an unread poem, prefab furniture without personality. If your offerings don’t require anything of the learners, then it’s all too easy for the learners to “put on their dunce hats of dependency” (as Knowles puts it) and tune out.

Education to Change the World: Learning for realising one's personal

Education to Change the World: Learning for realising one's personal | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
Organising learners into age groups, sticking them in classrooms, and subjecting them to imposed, diversified, daily curricula is clearly a recipe for disaster.  Predictably, most of the learners, for most of the time, are sitting there waiting for something to happen that is of relevance to their particular learning agenda.  It is a bit like roulette – with very few winners and lots of losers!

for the love of learning: The Politics of Personalization in the 21st Century | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Within this 21st-century parade of change, the notion ofpersonalization in education is moving to the forefront. It’s an ambiguous and often broadly defined notion. It’s a movement that could be as influential to how public education is conceived as privatization was in the 1980s.

Taking Aim at a President: Technology vs. Traditional Practices in ... | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
I can’t help but feel that the toughest job in higher education is that of president. LPerhaps the most active sinkhole on college campuses is technology, where presidents are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. Thus, I take little pleasure in spotlighting Adam F. Falk, president of Williams, for a presentation* at a recent conference, defending the traditional practices that have defined liberal arts colleges against the onslaught of the latest technology. However, I feel that the issues are important and that discussing them openly, even if it’s in the context of an outstanding educational leader, is necessary.
