The Kludging of Higher Education

The Kludging of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Giving students access to affordable, high-quality postsecondary education is one of the key domestic challenges of our time. The problem isn't that we don't know what to do. It's that our most basic democratic institutions are failing right in front of our eyes. Students deserve better than a future of full of kludge.

Graduate Education and the "Master's Bump" for Teaching Professionals - Accredited Online Colleges

Much has been made of the lackluster salaries for teachers in the United States. Although the Bureau of Labor Statistics cites an average salary of $51,380 for elementary school teachers and the slightly higher $51,960 and $53,230 for middle and high school teachers, respectively, that average incorporates the salary of those who have been teaching for years, or even decades. Salaries for the lowest 10 percent of educators–typically, beginning teachers with bachelor’s degrees–are less than $35,000 per year, regardless of the age of their students.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise when educators seek ways to increase their salaries, such as taking charge of extracurricular activities as athletic or activities coaches. But in the last 10 years, more teachers have taken advantage of the opportunity to earn more money as a direct result of furthering their education.

If only customers behave like students....

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, November 27, 2013 5:57 PM

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.

OER and Devices | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Textbook costs have become a real stumbling block for many students. Especially in the sciences and certain social sciences, it’s not unusual for an introductory textbook to run two hundred dollars or more. For a student taking four or five classes, that adds up quickly. Since many of our students are struggling with daily expenses, they often try to get through the class without buying the book. That strategy usually ends in tears.Over the past couple of years, several providers of Open Educational Resources have come along -- often with foundation support -- to make alternatives either free or very inexpensive. Even better, since most of those alternatives are electronic and specifically designed with access in mind, most of them are ADAA compliant right out of the gate. That’s often not true for certain large, very successful textbook publishers I could name.

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 6 Strategies For Performance Teaching

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 6 Strategies For Performance Teaching | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Make no mistake–teaching has never been easy. But as we come upon 2014, as a profession teaching is increasingly characterized by its possibility, accountability, and persistent mutation. Which makes it a challenge to do at all, much do well. 

The response to these challenges is a mix of building-level professional development, self-directed teacher improvement, and a troubling amount of teacher burnout. So how can you teacher smarter rather than simply grunting harder?

elearnspace › The Failure of Udacity

by George Siemens

 

Well, there it is folks. After two years of hype, breathless proclamations about how Udacity will transform higher education, Silicon Valley blindness to existing learning research, and numerous articles/interviews featuring Sebastian Thrun, Udacity has failed.

 

No one did more of a disservice to MOOCs than Thrun through his wild proclamations (“we have found the magic combination for online learning” and “in the future there will only be 10 universities”, digital learning manifestos, and so on) and self-aggrandizing. No one will do more damage to MOOCs as a concept than Thrun now that he realizes how unfounded his statements actually were.

 

Amazingly, after Udacity and Thurn’s “bull in a China shop” run through higher education, he proclaims that he has seen the light: “”We were on the front pages of newspapers and magazines, and at the same time, I was realizing, we don’t educate people as others wished, or as I wished. We have a lousy product…It was a painful moment.”"

 

The Udacity pivot, showcased (a latin term meaning “spin”) as a good thing in the Fast Company article, is the equivalent of Obama doing an Affordable Care is Working media tour. Make no mistake – this is a failure of Udacity and Sebastian Thrun. This is not a failure of open education, learning at scale, online learning, or MOOCs. Thrun tied his fate too early to VC funding. As a result, Udacity is now driven by revenue pursuits, not innovation. He promised us a bright future of open learning. He delivered to us something along the lines of a 1990′s corporate elearning program.

Preparing our Students for Web 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The rate of change is moving in such a speedy pace and sooner or later we will be dealing with  totally new paradigms in education; ones that are deeply grounded in information economy and collective "wisdom  of the mobs". These new changes are mainly driven by the digital culture we and our students have come to embrace, a culture that is predicated on participation, collaboration ,  distribution of knowledge sources, and co-creation of new resources and opportunities. But are we really doing what it takes to prepare our students for this paradigmatic change or what some scholars prefer to dub " Web 3.0 Learning " ?
