Although this is about higher level coursework than middle school, the social and collaborative importance of online learning is even more paramount at the middle grade level. When you choose a computer-based curriculum, look for ways that it allows students to work together or interact with their knowledge.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 21, 12:43 PM

Mobile teaching is about planning and executing learning through mobile devices.

You might want to be notified when a student accesses a quiz or reading you uploaded, or leaves a comment on another student’s blog, or shares a self-assessment. Or when a certain number of student’s answer a question correctly or incorrectly. Or when a student reaches a goal. This is one approach to mobile teaching.

Libraries reinvent themselves for the 21st century

Libraries reinvent themselves for the 21st century | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
For centuries, the defining role of the library has been as a repository of books.

 

Now, in the 21st century, the library faces perhaps its most momentous challenge.

 

Library leaders are adapting to a paradigm shift by reimagining the library as an engaged community center. The role of librarians is being re-branded to reflect their expertise as content curators and trusted navigators in an ever-expanding ocean of information — in whatever format it may exist.

 

Libraries are abuzz with services that go beyond traditional fare to offer more active programming for patrons, including an after-school program to aid students with homework. In the summer, more meeting rooms for patrons to use for business appointments,  more computer labs where patrons learn tech skills, or enroll in massive open online courses, or MOOCs, and other services.

More Disappearance of the Campus Edge: This Community College’s Newest Building Is On the UC Davis Campus

More Disappearance of the Campus Edge: This Community College’s Newest Building Is On the UC Davis Campus | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

That’s the lead in last Friday’s “Buildings & Grounds” post by Lawrence Biemiller at The Chronicle of Higher Education. 

 

"Sacramento City College has opened a $7.4-million complex on the U. of California at Davis’s new West Campus. The 20,000-square-foot facility, intended for 2,000 students, offers general-education courses at a much lower cost than students would pay to take courses through the university. For a small fee, students can also take advantage of the university’s library and recreation facilities."

This post discusses how big data is impacting education. In the discussion on big data the following question is raised: "How can we make our students (especially those online students) more successful? (In other words, retention, retention, retention.)" As she learned more about big data she wondered what happened to the human side of the equation, "the caring."

Although this article looks at online learning the words of the Dalai Lama ring true for all of us as educators. Read through them and see what you think. All words used in the image above were said by the Dalai Lama. My thanks to her for putting together some of his words and bringing them to our attention.
