McAndrew found the right medium with the increasingly popular Remind app, which many districts see as an acceptable alternative. Educators can blast out assignments, helpful study aids or reminders about an upcoming test, and copy parents on each and every message. Because Remind runs through a third party service, no cell phone numbers are necessary.

Learning to be Watched: Surveillance Culture at School | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Schools now routinely direct children online to do their schoolwork, thereby exposing them to tracking of their online behavior and subsequent targeted marketing. This is part of the evolution of how marketing companies use digital marketing, ensuring that children and adolescents are constantly connected and available to them. Moreover, because digital technologies enable extensive personalization, they amplify opportunities for marketers to control what children see in the private world of their digital devices as well as what they see in public spaces.

Unbundled Education is allowing students to customize their educational experience | Impact Lab | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Here’s another example from the University of Wisconsin that offers students freedom from rigid course and semester formats. Students can leverage what they already know to move more quickly through certain courses. Their competency is confirmed through assessment, which they can take at any time. Thus, foundational and required degree courses can become ‘micro’ because students have the option to condense them, collect credits, and move on at their own speed.

How To Teach Children That Failure Is The Secret To Success - NPR

How To Teach Children That Failure Is The Secret To Success - NPR | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Is failure a positive opportunity to learn and grow, or is it a negative experience that hinders success? How parents answer that question has a big influence on how much children think they can improve their intelligence through hard work, a study says.

"Parents are a really critical force in child development when you think about how motivation and mindsets develop," says Kyla Haimovitz, a professor of psychology at Stanford University. She coauthored the study, published in Psychological Science with colleague Carol Dweck, who pioneered research on mindsets. "Parents have this powerful effect really early on and throughout childhood to send messages about what is failure, how to respond to it."

Although there's been a lot of research on how these forces play out, relatively little looks at what parents can do to motivate their kids in school, Haimovitz says. This study begins filling that gap.

This is a really practical short article focusing on the 'how' of incorporating innovative thinking in the classroom.  I liked that it contained lots of suggestions and 'verbs' to create lesson objectives or learning targets; essential questions or understandings for units; assessment questions; scoring guides or rubrics for projects, for choice boards for differentiated learning, and so on.

Children have both a drive to learn and an affinity for quick rewards – digital aids amplify both. Few people would imagine that children left in a room with an encyclopedia and enticing toys (even educational ones) could, on their own, summit the intellectual mountain that is a K-12 education.

The Real Revolution in Online Education is Competency-Based Education

Online competency-based education is the key to filling in the skills gaps in the workforce. Broadly speaking, competency-based education identifies explicit learning outcomes when it comes to knowledge and the application of that knowledge. They include measurable learning objectives that empower students: this person can apply financial principles to solve business problems; this person can write memos by evaluating seemingly unrelated pieces of information; or this person can create and explain big data results using data mining skills and advanced modeling techniques.
