NEWPORT, Maine — Algebra was not Kylee Elderkin’s favorite subject at the beginning of the school year. “I was a little behind,” said Kylee, 14. “I wouldn’t understand.” The Nokomis Regional High School ninth grader said she used to routinely miss key skills and do poorly on tests.

This high school program looks very interesting!

Student Evaluations of Professors That Might Help

Student Evaluations of Professors That Might Help | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Despite recent criticism of student reviews of faculty members, there is a system that’s working, AAUP conference is told.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

This is not your typical student eval-this is the scenario: students who are NOT in the class, regularly visit a class and meet with the instructor who is teaching the course. The instructor has volunteered to have their class evaluated. The students are given a stipend/workstudy or academic credit for their time. 

 

Sounds very interesting based on how the program was set up and implemented..with mutual respect being paramount.

A Guide for Resisting Edtech: the Case against Turnitin - Hybrid Pedagogy | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Students often find themselves uploading their content — their creative work — into the learning management system. Perhaps they retain a copy of the file on their computer; but with learning analytics and plagiarism detection software, they still often find themselves having their data scanned and monetized, often without their knowledge or consent.

Wow-this is a very interesting article-I'm sure it will spark lots of discussion.

MOOCs: A Postmortem

MOOCs: A Postmortem | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
What I mean when I say that MOOCs are dead is not that MOOCs no longer exist, but that MOOCs are no longer competing against universities for the same students. Continuing with the Coursera theme here, in August they became the last of the major MOOC providers to pivot to corporate training.

 

While I did note the departure of Daphne Koller on this blog, I didn’t even bother to mention that pivot at the time because it seemed so unremarkable, but really it is.


Via Nik Peachey
Becky Roehrs's insight:

I love taking MOOC's, but would never want my (public) institution to waste money on creating or maintaining a MOOC ..what a waste of public money! Let the private schools throw their dollars away-we'll be glad to take the courses we like and ignore the rest.

 

It was obvious, IMO, from day one, MOOC's were not set up for a self-sustaining business model, and were building courses on the backs of faculty who were donating their time and  materials to corporations (quite a few of the MOOC providers are not non-profit, in spite of their "good intentions"). 

 

Corporate training is their only hope..until then, take the courses while they are free!
