The term 'disruptive' may seem concerning but it is actually talking about change and the need for change to occur for progress to be made. Disruptive technologies in educaiton are those which challenge the norm and allow greating access to learning for students than technologies from the past.

The 5 Best Free Rubric Making Tools for Teachers

The 5 Best Free Rubric Making Tools for Teachers | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Rubrics are generally something that makes the life of an educator easier. Rather than adding an arbitrary grade to an assignment, with rubrics educators are able to determine exactly where a students work excelled beyond expectations and exactly where it lacked quality. Although they are highly valuable tools, creating rubrics can be a difficult and time-consuming process. That is, it used to be a difficult and time consuming process until you found out about these 5 Best Free Rubric Making Tools for Teachers.

In our second look at the NMC Horizon Report: 2014 Higher Education Edition, we cover the six “significant challenges” it identifies as impeding the adoption of technology in higher education

 

1- Low digital fluency among faculty

2- Relative lack of rewards for teaching

3- Competition from new models of education (MOOCs)

4- Scaling teaching innovations

5- Expanding access

6- Keeping education relevant

The School of Dyslexia: What’s in a Name? Labels that Inform and Educate—But Don’t Define Us

The School of Dyslexia: What’s in a Name? Labels that Inform and Educate—But Don’t Define Us | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
The news services have been recently buzzing about the latest revisions to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (known as the DSM) used by social workers, physicians, and psychologists to identify and treat mental illness. This will be the fifth revision to the DSM; the last revision (DSM-IV) was in 1994. One controversial issue in this most recent round of revisions was whether or not to use the terms “dyslexia” and “Asperger’s disorder” as diagnostic categories.  Just last week, it was announced that Asperger’s disorder will be dropped. Dyslexia is in—but will be subsumed under the category of Learning Disorders. These changes have caused passionate debate in the professional community and outrage among some parents and teachers, who argue that subsuming the term “dyslexia” under a broader category minimizes the seriousness of the disorder.

Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.

More good news for the hybrid learning model - eCampus News

More good news for the hybrid learning model - eCampus News | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

New study finds that hybrid learning and traditional instruction adds value to a student’s education.

A new report published in the Higher Education Academy reveals what many in the ed-tech community have long suspected: incorporating technology in the classroom along with traditional teaching practices improves student learning.

Technology, for example, can enhance the way students perform in certain subjects by using applications such as adaptive tests which determines question difficulty based on previous answers, and innovations in education including multimedia and digital projects can help reduce cheating.

The real challenge for higher ed leaders is keeping up with the rapidly changing innovations in technology and education, while finding innovative ways to incorporate new learning methods in curricula.
