Purdue U. Software Prompts Students to Study—and Graduate - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Purdue U. Software Prompts Students to Study—and Graduate - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Just when students thought they were finished with Mom and Dad’s nagging them to do their homework, a piece of software has taken the parents’ place. But this new nagging reminder, called Signals, has given students at Purdue University a boost in graduation rates.


Across the board, since 2007, students enrolled in at least one class with Signals saw a higher graduation rate than did students who were not in classes with the software, according to data from Purdue. Retention rates for those enrolled in classes with the tracking software were also higher than for those in classes without the technology.

Alfredo Calderón's insight:

The importance of having an early alert system that monitors students academic performance.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, September 25, 2013 11:07 PM

How to design a powerful learning environment so that learners can thrive in the 21st century? OECD’s Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) is an ambitious international study that responds to this challenging question. The study earlier released the influential publication The Nature of Learning: Using Research to Inspire Practice. This companion volume is based on 40 in-depth case studies of powerful 21st century learning environments that have taken the innovation journey.
Innovative Learning Environments presents a wealth of international material and features a new framework for understanding these learning environments, organised into eight chapters. Richly illustrated by the many local examples, it argues that a contemporary learning environment should:

  • Innovate the elements and dynamics of its "pedagogical core".
  • Become a "formative organisation" through strong design strategies with corresponding learning leadership, evaluation and feedback.
  • Open up to partnerships to grow social and professional capital, and to sustain renewal and dynamism.
  • Promote 21st century effectiveness through the application of the ILE learning principles.

In conclusion it offers pointers to how this can be achieved, including the role of technology, networking, and changing organisational cultures. This report will prove to be an invaluable resource for all those interested in schooling. It will be of particular interest to teachers, education leaders, parents, teacher educators, advisors and decision-makers, as well as the research community.

MOOC. Massive Online Open Courses. Enseñar menos para aprender más | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

La educación a distancia evoluciona en el tiempo. La frase del título sintetiza dicha evolución con meridiana certeza. “Enseñar menos para aprender más”.  Joan AmosComenius, pensador checo y creador de la Didáctica, formuló este pensamiento en el año1638. En los prolegómenos del siglo 21, diríase en los tiempos actuales, los métodos de aprendizaje y enseñanza en la modalidad a distancia se sustentan en el paradigma de un mundo digital.
