7 EdTech Assumptions | Inside Higher Ed

7 EdTech Assumptions | Inside Higher Ed | Education Technology | Scoop.it

To what degree do these assumptions guide our responses to challenges at HU? (Assume the "our" is faculty, staff, and admin, although assumptions likely vary across those groups.)

I might shift the focus of the discussion to assumptions which set up conflict -- to underlying contradictions and conundrums that persistently affect how we do (and don't) address change:

1. Our students come in underprepared, and someone should do something about that so we can teach our subjects rigorously.

Related--1b. We shouldn't let in "weaker" students, and we are deeply tuition-dependent.

1c. Getting "stronger" students is worth the discount impact, where "merit" eats up most institutional aid, but we are concerned about student debt.

1d. We care about retention of students, but our enrollment targets mandate that we will enroll people with specific needs (academic and financial) that are not easily (or at all) going to be met.

2. Shared governance is crucial to institutional success, yet faculty are being asked to do too much administrative work.

2b. Administrative expenses (from marketing to management) are crucial to institutional success, but we must contain expenditures (to a large extent meaning we must contain compensation costs) to be fiscally responsible.

3. Longterm issues (economic, demographic) demand that our institution must be adaptive to significant change, but our fiscal "responsibilities" are rigorously aimed at one-year performance and our budgeting process is largely reactive to short-term conditions.

The next generation will guide us through educational transition. They want hands-on learning without the pressure to learn in any given context. And they want to meet role models who will help them understand the value of education.

US Ed. Dept. Makes Protecting Student Data a High Priority | EdWeek.org | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Seeking to help schools protect students' privacy without inhibiting the use of digital technologies in the classroom, the U.S. Department of Education released new guidance last week on the proper use, storage, and security of the massive amounts of data being generated by new, online educational resources.

 

"This can't be a choice between privacy and progress," Secretary of Education Arne Duncan told a gathering of privacy advocates and ed-tech leaders who gathered for a "summit" on the hot-button issue.

 

The guidance comes amid a flurry of activity around student-data privacy. Also in recent weeks, a leading technology trade group issued its own recommendations for protecting such data; major state legislation was proposed in California; U.S. Sen. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., announced that he will soon introduce a federal bill; and the San Francisco-based nonprofit Common Sense Media hosted the high-profile "School Privacy Zone" summit here.

 

James P. Steyer, the CEO of Common Sense Media, said the confluence of efforts is a good sign.

Peril And Promise: A Decade on | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Higher education finds itself at another crossroad today, as national systems seem to be pulled in several directions by a combination of factors bringing about both opportunities and challenges at the same time.  The forces exercising new pressures on higher education can be divided into three groups: crisis factors, stimulation factors, and rupture factors.

In the Future Everything Will Learn: Personalized classrooms are on the way. | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Each year, IBM releases a list of five innovations that it believes have the potential to change the way people work, live, and interact during the next five years. This year, the IBM researchers working on the “5 in 5” listing focus on the notion that in the future, everything will learn. According to IBM: “Driven by a new era of cognitive systems where machines will learn, reason, and engage with us in a more natural and personalized way. These innovations are beginning to emerge enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics, and learning technologies all coming together.” The number 1 item for 2014: The Classroom Will Learn You.
