What Can We Learn From the Global Effort Around Mobile Learning?

What Can We Learn From the Global Effort Around Mobile Learning? | digital media and learning | Scoop.it

Closing the achievement gap and giving all students access to a world of learning online remains one of the strongest allures of education technology. In the U.S., that conversation is often centered on the newest shiny device, slickest software or free app, but internationally mobile technology is revolutionizing learning too, often without fancy gadgets. Recognizing the creative learning strategies being implemented in developing countries could help expand thinking in the U.S and inform the ongoing discussion about how to use technology to deepen learning

TED Video: How Simple Ideas Lead to Scientific Discoveries

"Adam Savage walks through two spectacular examples of profound scientific discoveries that came from simple, creative methods anyone could have followed -- Eratosthenes' calculation of the Earth's circumference around 200 BC and Hippolyte Fizeau's measurement of the speed of light in 1849."

If you want to measure something, first you have to define it. That's why we're just at the very beginning of developing assessments for digital literacy. One thing is certain, digital literacy is multi-dimensional.

Massive Open Online Courses Expanding in the Developing World

Massive Open Online Courses Expanding in the Developing World | digital media and learning | Scoop.it

"When prominent U.S. universities began offering free college classes over the Web this year, more than half of the students who signed up were from outside the United States. Consider the story of one of them: Carlos Martinez, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of El Salvador."

Is now the time to jump off the MOOC bandwagon?

Is now the time to jump off the MOOC bandwagon? | digital media and learning | Scoop.it

"Like lemmings, too many American colleges are mindlessly rushing out to find a way to deliver online education, and more and more often they are choosing Coursera. The company, founded this year by two Stanford University computer scientists, has already enrolled more than two million students, has engaged 33 academic institutions as partners, and is offering more than 200 free massive open online courses, or MOOC's. A college's decision to jump on the Coursera bandwagon is aided—and eased—by knowing that academic heavyweights like Harvard, Stanford, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are already on board... In our haste to join the academic alphas, many of us are forgoing the reflection necessary to enter this new medium."

juliekeane's insight:

I do think that most of the drive to jump onto these new course offerings is about short-term cost savings without thinking about the long-term effects of diminishing course offerings at mid-size and small colleges and universities. The impact will be far ranging - particularly for those currently in doctoral programs who will face an ever-shrinking job market.  This will narrow the discourse in multiple disciplines when the few dictate the curriculum for the many.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 9, 2013 9:51 AM

MOOCs are pretty popular these days. This is a good article about whether it's a good idea for all higher ed institutions or not, but also forewarns about jumping in too fast.

Digital Technologies Have Mixed Effect on Students' Research Habits

Digital Technologies Have Mixed Effect on Students' Research Habits | digital media and learning | Scoop.it

"Teachers are conflicted about the effect of the Internet and digital search tools on their students' research and writing habits, according to a new study... The survey found that three-quarters of teachers think the Internet and digital search tools have had a "mostly positive" effect on students' research habits, but 87 percent said digital tools are creating an 'easily distracted generation with short attention spans,' and 64 percent said the tools 'do more to distract students than to help them academically'."
