Wiley: Interactive Open Educational Resources: A Guide to Finding, Choosing, and Using What's Out There to Transform College Teaching - John D. Shank | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

Sponsored by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), this one-of-a-kind book demonstrates the best tools, resources, and techniques for discovering, selecting, and integrating interactive open educational resources (OERs) into the teaching and learning process. The author examines many of the best repositories and digital library websites for finding high quality materials, explaining in depth the best practices for effectively searching these repositories and the various methods for evaluating, selecting, and integrating the resources into the instructor’s curriculum and course assignments, as well as the institution’s learning management system.

If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful.

This is a very interesting read on how these trends speak across campus silos - not only from discipline to discipline, but classroom to administration (and beyond) - to the over-arching goal of institutional and student success (engagement, retention, etc).

Hybrid Classes Outlearn Traditional Classes -- THE Journal

Hybrid Classes Outlearn Traditional Classes -- THE Journal | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it
Students in hybrid classrooms outperformed their peers in traditional classes in all grades and subjects, according to the newest study from two organizations that work with schools in establishing hybrid instruction. According to the 2013-2014 "Hybrid Learning Program Results," from Hybrid Learning Institute and Dellicker Strategies, more than nine out of 10 schools using a hybrid learning program reported higher academic performance on standardized tests compared to traditional classrooms in the same school district or state benchmarks.

Transition in learning and education through technological trends by John Leek

Transition in learning and education through technological trends by John Leek | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it
technology and new media have a deep influence on the way we learn as individuals and how learning takes place. Learning used to be the main domain of schools, universities etcetera. These days the acceleration of all sorts of informal and non formal learning is astonishing. Schools, museums, libraries and other 'centers of learning' have to redefine themselves. Every employee has to keep learning in a rapidly changing society. The classroom is flipping but also the museum and the workplace.
John Shank's insight:

Nice compilation of videos on how technology is impacting teaching & learning.

Tenets of the Liberal Arts: Complex Thinking in the Digital Age (EDUCAUSE Review)

Tenets of the Liberal Arts: Complex Thinking in the Digital Age (EDUCAUSE Review) | Higher Education in the Future | Scoop.it

"Twenty-one years later, the current debate about technology upending the liberal arts tradition1 entails a kind of collective amnesia similar to that evident at the dawn of the digital revolution. We seem to have forgotten what we already knew: that we need to bring all of our critical capacities to the promise of linked information technologies and we need to bring the liberal arts methods and rigor to the digital environment."
