worth reading

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, April 26, 2013 7:29 PM

This is a very interesting PDF article on Interactive Technologies in language teaching, focusing on the Interactive White Board (IWB) including what it is, IWB based materials, and how to use it in the foreign language classroom. Definitely worth a read, although it is definitely targeted at a very specific audience as not every classroom has an IWB.

Despite courtship Amherst decides to shy away from star MOOC provider | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

After months of wooing and under close scrutiny, edX was rejected this week by Amherst College amid faculty concerns about the online course provider's business plans and impact on student learning.

Amherst professors voted on Tuesday not to work with edX, a nonprofit venture started by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to provide massive open online courses, or MOOCs. In interviews, professors cited a wide range of reasons for rejecting edX -- which currently works with only 12 elite partner colleges and universities -- starting with edX's incompatibility with Amherst’s mission and ending with, to some, the destruction of higher education as we know it.
