What are the components of a digital classroom?

 

What are the components of a digital classroom? From eBooks to smartboards, iTunesU implementation to online learning, the classroom as we know it is changing.

 

It’s true that a digital classroom is a vague idea. And subjective–one educator’s cutting edge learning laboratory is the next educator’s been there, done that.

 

The following infographic looks at some of the more common elements of a digital classroom, including:

 

- eBooks
- Book rental via Kindle
- iPads
- Open Source software

MOOCs: neither the death of the university nor a panacea for learning by Jane Den Hollander

MOOCs: neither the death of the university nor a panacea for learning by Jane Den Hollander | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Over the last few months most of us who work in higher education, as well as those who watch and comment on what we do have been fascinated by a singular topic: the MOOC. [...] They are very new, and no-one yet knows what they will mean or what role they will play. But many already believe that Pandora’s box has been opened. [...] For the first time in our existence, some are questioning the university’s purpose and future. [...] Clearly MOOCs are not the panacea, or a replacement, but they do contribute to a worldwide learning community, hungry to learn and engage with others who wish to do likewise."

You're welcome :)

It's interesting interesting that you mention POV and stance, as that is not something I had explicitly articulated for myself, but naturally it must be implicitly true. In that sense, it reminds me (again) that curation forces self-reflection in order to present the content better, and that can only be a good thing.
Liz Renshaw's comment, September 8, 2012 9:57 PM
Agree with posts about curation guiding self reflection. This interview in particular is top value and two of my fav people indeed.
Andrew McRobert's curator insight, August 19, 8:43 AM

8. This links a series of three interviews quite lengthy but there is some insightful information for the novice in the digital information age. There is video links within the article, including a great question and answer with Robin Good on curation. The video brings a balance to this inclusion.

10 Key Reasons That Make Content Curation Important for Education And Learning

10 Key Reasons That Make Content Curation Important for Education And Learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Excerpted from long but very interesting article by Master Curator Robin Good:

 

"Content curation will play a major role both in the way we teach and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught and the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning

Book review - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Book review by Shattuck  - Quality assurance and accreditation in distance education and e-learning: Models, policies and research.

Review published in: The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

 

The book that Jung and Latchem pulled together provides much-needed discussion on just what quality assurance in distance education is. It also provides conceptual organizational models and practical strategies for continually working towards quality improvement and for transparently tracking and documenting outcomes. Most importantly, this book finally brings quality assurance from being a lofty ideal into the realm of practical discussion.

10 Up-And-Coming Cities That Are Disrupting Education

10 Up-And-Coming Cities That Are Disrupting Education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Nearly every nation in the world would like to bring in the best and brightest scholars to its schools (and hopefully tap into some of that genius in their economy), but not all have the resources or the facilities to do so.

 

While the U.S. and Europe still dominate many of the lists of top universities, other nations, even some smaller ones, are working hard to provide some serious international competition, building massive education cities and cutting-edge universities that are designed to bring in students from all over the world.

 

While some still have a long way to go, others are proving that top-tier higher education is going to be a far more global game in the coming decades. We highlight just a few of these cities and their impressive educational offerings in this list.
