This is not surprising.  Apps come and go for young users of social media.  Snapchat is up and coming, Facebook is fading.  Maybe it's oldsters who keep the old apps and social media going.  But texting is just simple, clean, easy.

Berlin/Karlsruhe, 9. Dezember 2014 - Schüler geben der IT-Ausstattung an ihren Schulen von Jahr zu Jahr schlechtere Noten und wünschen sich einen stärkeren Einsatz von digitalen Medien im Unterricht. Das ist das Ergebnis einer repräsentativen Befragung von 512 Schülern weiterführender Schulen im Auftrag des Hightech-Verbands BITKOM und der LEARNTEC, der Messe für digitales Lernen. Mehr als jeder zweite Schüler (54 Prozent) bezeichnet den Zustand der Computertechnik an seiner Schule als mittelmäßig oder schlecht.

Is lecture really the thing that needs fixing? By Robert Talbert

Is lecture really the thing that needs fixing? By Robert Talbert | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Image: Automated Blackboard eraser...

 

Based on the headline and framing of the article, you might be tempted to think that the problem is that lecture is ineffective and that data might be able to fix it. But that’s not really it. (Nor is the problem that students are stupid and lazy, which you might get from the comment section.) Actually I think Samson himself nails the problem:

He is not shy about admitting where teaching falls on the list of priorities for most of his peers: a distant third, after publishing articles and landing research grants. “Instructors want to do the right thing,” he says. “They’re just busy guys, and they don’t sense that the bean-counting is heavily weighted toward the teaching.”

In that one quote, you get everything you need to know about why traditional instructor-centered teaching still reigns supreme on many university campuses, despite mountains of evidence, not to mention anecdotes, that interactive-engagement methods are far more effective. It all boils down to that one word:Priorities.



Via Dennis T OConnor
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

" If you really want something to happen, you make it a priority and make the time. I have to conclude that I think many universities, and sadly many faculty, say that they want effective teaching and high student performance, but they don’t want it badly enough to make sacrifices for it."

 

He has point there. :-)

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 13, 2014 12:40 AM

Here's a bit of insight: Professors should also be teachers, colleges should make teaching a priority, teaching skills should be rewarded.


You know what they say about should... Still it's a clean, simple, low tech solution a major problem in the college classroom. 

Michelle Allwright's curator insight, August 20, 2014 5:11 PM

Interactive, engaging and the learning around core skills is where it is heading. It's about ensuring that the students are industry ready; not just theory ready.

Jim Goldsmith's curator insight, August 20, 2014 8:18 PM

A number of good points made about priorities in higher education; also, some intelligent disussion in the comment sections from (mostly) learning peers.

IT and Academics Don't Plan Together Much, New Survey Finds

IT and Academics Don't Plan Together Much, New Survey Finds | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

From the Campus Technology report: "Campus IT is a disjointed effort at most campuses. For example, in more than four out of five colleges and universities, IT professionals report that they do not regularly develop joint plans with academic departments for IT initiatives. These are some of the results that came out of a survey of 152 higher ed IT people in June by MeriTalk, a government-focused Web site."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, August 6, 2014 4:29 PM

And: "Nearly six out of 10 don't survey academic or research staff on IT needs; and more than six out of 10 lack a catalog of IT services. Perhaps that's why 57 percent of end users view IT as the 'fix it' folks and just 22 percent say IT is considered a 'trusted ally.'"


The survey itself can be downloaded from this website.
