Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

This fall Pearson introduced an “immersive digital learning tool” called Revel that reimagines the textbook as a multimedia experience replete with videos, interactive exercises, and animated infographics. The goal, Pearson’s Stephen Frail tells me, is to make the course materials “more compelling than Facebook,” which after all is only “one click away” whenever a student is doing coursework on her computer or tablet.

Future Bright for Online Education
The arguments offered in Jing Liu’s essay run counter to the validation online programs receive from regional accreditation, the U.S. Department of Education and the success students experience as graduates. As someone who has taught online classes since 1999 and managed the online program administration at my campus for 16 years, I am personally aware of the progress we have made, the quality of instruction we do achieve, the access door we have opened wider and the difference we have made in the lives of our students.

The State of OA: A large-scale analysis of the prevalence and impact of Open Access articles

Despite growing interest in Open Access (OA) to scholarly literature, there is an unmet need for large-scale, up-to-date, and reproducible studies assessing the prevalence and characteristics of OA. We address this need using oaDOI, an open online service that determines OA status for 67 million articles. We use three samples, each of 100,000 articles, to investigate OA in three populations: 1) all journal articles assigned a Crossref DOI, 2) recent journal articles indexed in Web of Science, and 3) articles viewed by users of Unpaywall, an open-source browser extension that lets users find OA articles using oaDOI. We estimate that at least 28% of the scholarly literature is OA (19M in total) and that this proportion is growing, driven particularly by growth in Gold and Hybrid. The most recent year analyzed (2015) also has the highest percentage of OA (45%). Because of this growth, and the fact that readers disproportionately access newer articles, we find that Unpaywall users encounter OA quite frequently: 47% of articles they view are OA. Notably, the most common mechanism for OA is not Gold, Green, or Hybrid OA, but rather an under-discussed category we dub Bronze: articles made free-to-read on the publisher website, without an explicit Open license. We also examine the citation impact of OA articles, corroborating the so-called open-access citation advantage: accounting for age and discipline, OA articles receive 18% more citations than average, an effect driven primarily by Green and Hybrid OA. We encourage further research using the free oaDOI service, as a way to inform OA policy and practice.

10 Ways to Create the Classroom of the Future by MATTHEW LYNCH

10 Ways to Create the Classroom of the Future by MATTHEW LYNCH | EduInfo | Scoop.it
While educational standards may differ from school to school there is one thing that is always nearly the same: the classroom set out. Desks are arranged in rows or groups, and the teacher stands at the front and teach. This set out has changed very little in a hundred years even with all the technological advancements that have been made. Edtech not only changes the way that children learn but changes the way they interact with one another, the classroom space and their teacher. Things need to change if classrooms are to meet the needs of the modern learner. Below …

Digital skills that teachers need for the classroom #3: The ability to crowdsource information | EduInfo | Scoop.it
As teachers we frequently promote ourselves in our modern role as facilitators rather than knowledge owners and yet when we get into the classroom so much of what we do tends to be telling rather than asking.

Crowdsourcing information is about doing the opposite. It’s about collecting information from the room and beyond and enabling our students to share what they already know and develop their knowledge together.

I consider really important to take into account technology as part of our teaching methodologies. Nowadays, technology can not be let behind, since it has advanced considerably we can not isolate it from education. As a matter of fact, technology is a powerfull tool that can contribute positively if we plan how to use it correctly in order to benefit our learners.

 

Considerably it has advanced, reason why lots of teachers are afraid to use it.It is sometimes a big responsability and also, it is something that demands training and a lot of practice.However, we have to be conscious of this necessity to implement teaching sessions through technology, in order to guarantee to learners an updated and renewed educational system; besides, it would impact positively in our current  technological society and culture.

So how do you teach in this odd virtual space? How do you keep participants from descending into that peculiar passivity characteristic of conference calls? And how do you help students fight the constant temptation of momentarily clicking away from class? While virtual classes are not without challenges, there are, in fact, concrete steps you can take to run class sessions that are energetic, interactive, and productive.

These are some high quality suggestions that can be simply and easily incorporated into your synchronous online class. Having done numerous webinar trainings, a couple of things I would add is 
1) the 60 minutes (or whatever your timeline) will seem to go by very fast once you get feedback from your students; 
2) after you ask a question, it's okay to say something like, "take a minute to think about that" then wait! 

You might only wait for 15 or 30 seconds but the silence is golden! I don't recommend you insert these pauses too often, but once in awhile gives students an opportunity to actually reflect on the question and form a coherent response...don't rush it.

What Goes in the Portfolio?
The portfolio represents your skills and expertise. You need to decide if you want the portfolio to be static where you only do occasional maintenance and updates. Or do you want a site that’s more dynamic and continually updating?

Here's a "Tool Review" article that also covers the basic elements of an online portfolio. This is aimed at instructional designers, but also speaks to online teachers.

This is a great resource for a leader in a high school. This can help a student to create a online e portfolio to collect important items that can help with getting into college or getting a job out of high school. This also can be helpful for a school as it can be use to create a school portfolio and display student accomplishment.
