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.

Nice approach and good to look more closely at MOOCs during this panic to jump on the MOOC bandwagon.

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."

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
