Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls

Hopscotch iPad app looks to teach building blocks of coding to girls | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Rather than making young people wade through incomprehensible strings of words and numbers, writing code in Hopscotch consists of dragging and dropping different cute characters and running scripts on them.

Here's something we need most even more than algebra. Girls and Boys that can code are in high demand for awhile.

An alternative perspective on the meaning of 'open' in Higher Education

With the rise of MOOCs there has been much speculation about the meaning of ‘open’, particularly with respect to the Higher Education business model.  It is clear that ‘open’ can be interpreted in ...

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.

Competency-based education heats up with new entrants | Inside Higher Ed

Competency-based education heats up with new entrants | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

These are heady times for competency-based education, which raises fundamental questions about the structure and purpose of higher education.

Several colleges are taking the competency-based approach to its potential end game, by offering “direct assessment” academic programs that are untethered from both course material and the credit hour. At the same time, a small but growing group of accreditors, foundations and higher education associations have begun discussing what academic rigor might look like in this emerging model.

10 Steps To A Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps To A Successful School iPad Program | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"

There’s simply no magic pill – whether it’s the laptop, smartboard, iPad or the next device that comes along in a year or two. Technology alone won’t ever have the capacity to improve education unless it’s woven into a holistic vision that meets the very real and urgent educational objectives that prepare our students for life outside and after school. Well-planned technology deployments can however have a transformative impact on learning.

 

Here’s a list of ten requirements for a successful iPad implementation in schools."

Competency-Based Education Advances With U.S. Approval of Program - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Competency-Based Education Advances With U.S. Approval of Program - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Last month the U.S. Education Department sent a message to colleges: Financial aid may be awarded based on students’ mastery of “competencies” rather than their accumulation of credits. That has major ramifications for institutions hoping to create new education models that don’t revolve around the amount of time that students spend in class.

Now one of those models has cleared a major hurdle. The Education Department has approved the eligibility of Southern New Hampshire University to receive federal financial aid for students enrolled in a new, self-paced online program called College for America, the private, nonprofit university has announced.

The Impact of Social Media on the Dissemination of Research: Results of an Experiment | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In September 2011 I returned to work after a year on maternity leave. Many things needed sorting out, not least my digital presence at my home institution, which had switched to a content management system that seamlessly linked to University College London’s open-access repository, “Discovery.” The idea was we should upload open-access versions of all our previously published research, and link to it from our home pages, to aid in dissemination. (...) - by Melissa Terras, Journal of Digital Humanities, Vol. 1, No. 3 Summer 2012
