The Rising Cost of Not Going to College

The Rising Cost of Not Going to College | Higher Education | Scoop.it

The latest Pew Research Center report on higher education shows that the education pay gap has widened partly because the pay for college graduates has risen over the decades but even more so because the real earnings of the less educated have kept falling. The Millennial worker with only a high school diploma had a median income of $28,000 in 2012; that’s down from $32,299 for comparably educated early Baby Boomers when they were young adults. And this difference is even larger than the increase in earnings for college graduates for millennials compared with the early boomers.


Via Alberto Acereda, Ph.D.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"New data from Pew Research indicates that for people 25 to 32 — part of the so-called millennial generation — the gap in earnings between college graduates and those with a high school diploma or less has never been greater in the modern era.

 

Pew researchers, in a report released Tuesday, found that millennials who have college degrees made about $17,500 more in 2012, on average, than their peers with only a high-school diploma. In inflation-adjusted dollars, that compares with a gap of almost $10,000 for the early baby boom generation when they were the same age that millennials are today. For the so-called Generation Xers, who were born between 1965 and 1980, the pay disparity between college and high school graduates at the time they were young adults was $15,780 in adjusted dollars, according to Pew’s analysis of federal data."

The Maker movement is a unique combination of artistry, circuitry, and old-fashioned craftsmanship. Certainly, learning by doing or "making" has been happening since our ancestors refined the wheel.

The Quintessential Of Anchored Instruction

The Quintessential Of Anchored Instruction | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Learning is enhanced when learners are able to collect information and acquire knowledge while they are striving to understand and solve problems that may arise within specific scenarios or situations based on the previous knowledge they probably have. When they lack previous knowledge, they can only memorize new facts. An anchored-based instructional design gives learners the opportunity, from the very beginning, apart from memorizing new information, to also understand how and where newly acquired knowledge can be applied, minimizing this way the possibility of its becoming inert.

Building an Ecosystem of Higher Education Innovation

Building an Ecosystem of Higher Education Innovation | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Higher education institutions will face increasing pressure to counter the public perception that "too many degrees are a waste of money." This shift will require the expansion of the ecosystem of higher education innovation through partnerships with and the inclusion of new stakeholders.

Via L. García Aretio
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Hoy más que nunca se necesita buscar nuevas formas más eficaces y creativas de lograr aprendizajes en los estudiantes universitarios. Los estudiantes detestan cada vez más las típicas clases expositivas con profesores aburridos que repiten los mismos discursos, ejercicios y diapositivas cada año, sin el más mínimo respeto por los nuevos estudiantes. Son los verdaderos "muertos vivientes" de nuestra sociedad.

7 Advantages of Online Discussions

7 Advantages of Online Discussions | Higher Education | Scoop.it

How to facilitate such discussions is confusing to many teachers, and online discussion threads and chatrooms may be seen as a poor substitute for the “real” thing, an evil necessity of the online class. However, although there are some barriers such as its more decontextualized nature, in comparison to face-to-face discussion, there are advantages that are unique to the online discussion that can be built on by the instructor while the drawbacks are minimized.

How universities are using data to stop students dropping out

How universities are using data to stop students dropping out | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Some institutions are now using data they hold on students to tailor their response to those who need it most. And this raises interesting questions around what data is gathered, how it’s analysed and who gets to see it. Should universities depend on so-called data triggers to prompt enquiries from tutors, or should they use predictions based on information garnered over time to shape a longer-term response? At what point should universities act? How comprehensive and intrusive should data collection be?

What Education Technology Could Look Like Over the Next Five Years

What Education Technology Could Look Like Over the Next Five Years | Higher Education | Scoop.it
A survey of schools around the world reveals what schools could look like, trends in personalized learning, the role of teachers and challenges to exciting techniques.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Uno de los términos más usados hoy en día para representar una tendencia cada vez más fuerte que se contrapone al modelo educativo actual es lo que se conoce como "deeper learning" que representa en esencia una apuesta por promover en los estudiantes el pensamiento crítico, las capacidades de aprender de manera colectiva y contextualizada resolviendo problemas reales de la sociedad, fortaleciendo sus capacidades de autoaprendizaje y de comunicación de modo que los conceptos y los contenidos académicos sean construidos por el propio estudiante de una manera más profunda y duradera.

 

Las tecnologías pueden ayudar muchísimo a que el "deeper learning" sea incorporado de manera más efectiva en las instituciones educativas.

"In view of the trends and challenges observed, the panel also signalled the important developments in technology that could support these drivers of innovation and change. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and makerspaces are expected to be increasingly adopted by schools in one year’s time or less to make use of mobile learning and cultivate environments where students take ownership of their education by doing and creating. The time-to-adoption for 3D printing and adaptive learning technologies are estimated within two to three years, while digital badges and wearable technology are expected to be mainstream in schools within four to five years."

State of Making Report Highlights University Best Practices for Maker Movement | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Academic institutions throughout the nation are committing themselves to the Maker movement, with the hopes of empowering a culture on their campus that promotes student confidence, STEM education, and hands-on creativity, according to a recent report by theMakeSchools Higher Education Alliance. Created in response to the Obama administration’s activities around Maker spaces, such as the White House Maker Faire in June 2014, the MakeSchools Higher Education Alliance is a consortium of more than 150 higher education institutions (research universities, colleges, and community colleges) committed to supporting Maker activities as an element of STEM education. Coordinated by Carnegie Mellon University and seven other schools, the network seeks to establish K-12 pipelines that provide higher-level education through Maker portfolios, enhance and expand Maker facilities on campuses, and develop new scholarships and opportunities for aspiring Makers."

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Tan importante en los colegios como en las Universidades es contextualizar los aprendizajes de manera activa, colaborativa, interdisciplinar, impulsando la creatividad, el enfoque sistémico y promoviendo el espíritu de comunidad. Todo ello puede alcanzarse desarrollando espacios físicos y curriculares que promuevan el "aprender haciendo". Que sea el campus e incluso la ciudad misma el entorno más importante del aprendizaje de nuestros estudiantes, comencemos a transformar las aulas, haciendo que estas sean menos aulas.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Interesantísima entrevista a Catherine L´Ecuyer, autora del libro "Educar en el asombro" que resume de manera muy acertada la esencia de la educación. Comparto plenamente lo que Catherine dice acerca de lograr el asombro como elemento esencial del aprendizaje de un niño. El asombro hacia la belleza de la realidad, pero "no hacia una belleza cosmética sino a la belleza profunda, la metafísica, aquella que representa la verdad y la bondad de su naturaleza". Yo agregaría que todo ello debería mantenerse a lo largo de toda la vida y deberíamos, como dice Catherine, mirarlos y aprender de ellos a vivir y aprender intensamente del presente.

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms?

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Even at the university level we’re choosing talent based on math scores, not on capabilities and demonstrated abilities,” Dougherty said. He thinks engineering programs could learn something from art schools when it comes to the application process. No art school accepts a student without examining a portfolio of work that demonstrates the student can do the work required required of them and has the potential to grow. Dougherty helped lobby MIT to begin accepting “maker portfolios” along with other application materials to ensure the things kids make are considered alongside test scores, essays and recommendations.

Via John Evans
Carlos Fosca's insight:

El "Maker Movement" debe ser un elemento clave en el desarrollo de proyectos multidisciplinares en las universidades. No es posible concebir soluciones innovadoras desde la perspectiva de una sola disciplina. Aún cuando hay avances importantes en algunas universidades, "una gaviota no hace verano".

Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology

Blended learning emerges as a leading trend in education technology | Higher Education | Scoop.it

The annual New Media Consortium Horizon Report’s K-12 2015 Edition, that provides insight into digital learning trends, named blended learning as a key topic to watch in the next two years. The trends included in the report were selected by 56 experts from 22 countries.Two teaching and learning trends expected to accelerate the use of educational technology in classrooms in a year or two, the report said, were the use of blended learning and STEAM (an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education.Sometimes called hybrid learning, blended learning enables educators to pursue a variety of instructional models. Ideally, the technology allows the teacher to make the most of face-to-face time with students, leaving some more routine learning tasks to the computer.
