MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift

MOOCs for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift | Education in Pakistan | Scoop.it

Berry supports the idea of MOOCs for professional development in theory because he’d like to see teachers be able to choose and direct their own learning. But he thinks success hinges on skilled virtual facilitators who both know the subject matter and how to foster high quality discussion and communication online in order to make it work well.

Robin Kay's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:23 AM

Interesting move - I would watch this one closely.  MOOCs seem better than large lecturs and in Coursera are much better designed.  Not sure I would want to be taught by a teachers whose only credentials were from Coursera, but I can see other higher education areas being better served by MOOCs.

Paul Rudd's curator insight, July 29, 2013 11:13 AM

MOOCs are interesting to look at in relation to finding possible best practice in setting up online courses

"The world’s media recently reported how a new approach to online learning – called massive, open, online courses (MOOCs) – allowed a 12-year-old girl from Pakistan to study subjects like astrobiology from the worlds’ top universities. The story captured our attention, hinting at how education might open doors in ways unimaginable just a few years ago."

I wonder who will become the Napster of higher ed?

A4Academics's comment, April 27, 2013 10:57 AM
Universities have already taken up using technology by providing e learning and online courses. In India IIM's , which is one of the premium MBA colleges, provides online learning . There are online classes on every week end done by eminent professors. I definitely agree with you on impact technology can bring into education.

Why should they tell you any of their plans? When they get elected, they won't bring the moon and stars down for you.
Anthony Williams FPFA LLB Member BAA (USA)'s insight:

But this time, those contesting the upcoming election are so ridden with uncertainty that despite showing the nation dreams of change and being a part of the top brass of their party, many high-profile candidates are also contesting elections as independent candidates, just in case they might have to change the picture around their necks at some point.

Mobile Learning: Literacy for Rural Women in Pakistan | The Communication Initiative Network | Education in Pakistan | Scoop.it

This United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) distance post-literacy project in Pakistan is based on mobile technology. Women are able to reinforce their newly gained literacy by accessing and sending mobile phone text messages. UNESCO implemented the "Mobile Based Post Literacy Pilot Project" in its initial phase in 2009 in partnership with Mobilink Pakistan and BUNYAD Foundation and, with additional partners, initiated a third phase in March 2012 using other information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the classrooms during the teaching cycle, including DVDs.
