Love Evernote

Marco Pozzi's curator insight, March 27, 2014 4:15 AM

Esistono delle applicazioni veramente notevoli. Avrebbero una ricaduta importante nella didattica così come nel lavoro di tutti i giorni.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, March 28, 2014 6:39 AM

If you've ever thought of getting into using Evernote, but weren't sure where to start, this would be a good place. Teachers can use Evernote to organise all sorts and share with students. It's a great tool, I'd recommend giving it a go.

The University of Illinois’ College of Business at Urbana-Champaign did the unthinkable this week. It agreed to put the entire MBA curriculum of a new and innovative program online for free.Yes, the school says the actual degree would cost about $20,000, which is about a third or less of the cost of online MBAs from universities of similar stature (see Breakthrough: A Top 50 MBA For $20,000). But that’s only if you want the piece of parchment paper that no one ever asks for anyway. Otherwise, you can take the complete degree in 18 or more separate courses at no cost whatsoeve

World Bank Group Doubles Results-Based Financing for Education to US$5 Billion over Next 5 Years

Ahead of World Education Forum 2015, Bank Group says poor education quality has ‘serious consequences’ for ending extreme poverty
Paul West's insight:

"Despite much progress, 121 million children around the world remain out of primary and lower secondary school. Most of these kids are the hardest to reach, due to poverty, gender barriers, remoteness, and disability. The new global goal for 2030 is not only to get all the remaining children in school but also make sure they are learning the literacy, math, and non-cognitive skills they need to escape extreme poverty, share in the benefits of economic growth, and drive innovation and job creation."

How 'digital natives' are killing the 'sage on the stage'

How 'digital natives' are killing the 'sage on the stage' | ICT & OER in Education | Scoop.it
Lectures and lecturers will have to adapt to modern times in order to stay relevant.
Paul West's insight:

"The very birth of the lecture comes from medieval times, when books were difficult to make and experts were few and far between. Back in those days, the best way to record knowledge was for a monk to stand up the front of the room and recite the passages from a manuscript or book, while the novices below him hurriedly wrote down exactly what was said"
