Rethinking Education: Why Our Education System Is Ripe For Disruption

Rethinking Education: Why Our Education System Is Ripe For Disruption | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Our education system is not broken, it has just become obsolete When I think of all the tremendous, seemingly impossible feats made possible by entrepreneurs, I am amazed that more has not been done to reinvent our education system.

 

Our collective belief is that our education system is broken so we spend tremendous energy in trying to fix it. We conveniently place the blame on problems that stem from budget cuts, teacher layoffs, inadequate technology in our schools and our education policies.

 

We need to recognize the fact that our education system is NOT BROKEN but has simply become OBSOLETE. It no longer meets the needs of the present and future generation.

EdTech is No Longer Optional [INFOGRAPHIC] | LearnDash

EdTech is No Longer Optional [INFOGRAPHIC] | LearnDash | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The edtech arena is taking off, and that’s no surprise given the exciting advancements and accessibility of mobile devices.  Opinion among educators is predictably in favor of educational technology in the classroom, with a whopping 96% believing that it increases student engagement in learning. Heck, 89% of teachers believe that the use of ed-tech improves student outcomes in the classroom.  This is probably why we are seeing an increased use of learning management systems, ipads, and various apps in K-12 settings.

How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad

How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"If you’ve ever run into a .zip file on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad you will probably have discovered it’s a bit of a dead-end initially, because by default there isn’t much you can do with zips or any other archive format. That doesn’t mean you can’t open ZIP files though, and in fact these archives can be viewed, unzipped, and opened in iOS with relative ease, but you will need to download a free third party app before you’ll have the function included on your device. This will allow you view all of the contents of any zip file quickly, and also decompress the entire archive, or just extract a single file from a larger archive, providing quick access to the zip contents which can be saved locally or opened in another application of choice."

Digital Badges for Professional Development (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Across the United States, higher education institutions and other organizations are experimenting with the use of digital badges to guide, motivate, document, and validate formal and informal learning. Badges are currently in use or in development at institutions such as MIT, Carnegie Mellon, the University of California–Davis, Purdue University, Seton Hall, and Yale University. Organizations outside of higher education interested in supporting learning are issuing badges too, including NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. departments of Veterans Affairs and Education, the Young Adult Library Services Association, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Smithsonian, EDUCAUSE, and the movie studio Disney-Pixar.
