How Google is disrupting the education system

How Google is disrupting the education system | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.

“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.

The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.

Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.

This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

Bryce Lester's curator insight, April 20, 9:15 AM

In the past years in the U.S. many people have stopped skateboarding. Even though it has dropped in the U.S. skateboarding has become more popular in many countries around the world. Professional skateboarding has also became more common around the world. In the U.S. in 2006 10.13 million people participated in skateboarding, but in a 2015 only 6.44 million americans participated in skateboarding.  The cause of the numbers declining may be because of the number of injuries included in the sport. Also, police have started cracking down on skateboarding in towns and in some towns skateboarding is banned from the public. Even though the number of skateboarding participants has dropped there are still many skateboarders in the U.S.

3 modern Instructional Designer Skills for creating a cohesive learning experience | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it
Instructional Designers are trained in the latest cutting edge technologies and are adept at using creative techniques to build custom training solutions. They are known for their passion for learning, along with their writing, researching, and communication skills. They must also be effective project managers and flexible problem solvers. These Instructional Designer skills are necessary but will be insufficient unless they are applied with a “learner first” philosophy, which places the needs of the learner ahead of the presentation of the content in the eLearning course. Here are 3 modern Instructional Designer skills the experts use to focus on the needs of their learner:
