Come the Revolution: Coursera, world-class learning

Come the Revolution: Coursera, world-class learning | 21st C - Exponential Education | Scoop.it
Through ventures like Coursera, world-class learning is coming at bargain-basement prices.

 

These top-quality learning platforms could enable budget-strained community colleges in America to “flip” their classrooms. That is, download the world’s best lecturers on any subject and let their own professors concentrate on working face-to-face with students. Says Koller: “It will allow people who lack access to world-class learning — because of financial, geographic or time constraints — to have an opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families.”

 

When you consider how many problems around the world are attributable to the lack of education, that is very good news.

 

===> Let the revolution begin. <===

Global mobile phone sales slowing down - The Hindu | 21st C - Exponential Education | Scoop.it

Despite its ongoing patent war with Apple, Samsung not only retained the top slot, but gathered even greater market share in a slowing market. Industry analysts say the faster pace of smartphones has been the saving grace in an otherwise sluggish market. Gartner does not expect the festive season later this quarter to compensate for the overall decline.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 9:53 AM
To work, the 21st century skills movement will require keen attention to curriculum, teacher quality, and assessment.
A growing number of business leaders, politicians, and educators are united around the idea that students need "21st century skills" to be successful today. It's exciting to believe that we live in times that are so revolutionary that they demand new and different abilities. But in fact, the skills student’s needs in the 21st century are not new.
Critical thinking and problem solving, for example, have been components of human progress throughout history, from the development of early tools, to agricultural advancements, to the invention of vaccines, to land and sea exploration. Such skills as information literacy and global awareness are not new, at least not among the elites in different societies. The need for mastery of different kinds of knowledge, ranging from facts to complex analysis? Not new either. Today we cannot afford a system in which receiving a high-quality education is akin to a game of bingo. If we are to have a more equitable and effective public education system, skills that have been the province of the few must become universal.
This distinction between "skills that are novel" and "skills that must be taught more intentionally and effectively" ought to lead policymakers to different education reforms than those they are now considering. If these skills were indeed new, then perhaps we would need a radical overhaul of how we think about content and curriculum. But if the issue is, instead, that schools must be more deliberate about teaching critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving to all students, then the remedies are more obvious, although still intensely challenging.
