Yesterday, we talked a bit about digital natives and digital immigrants. I mentioned at the beginning of that post that I got into thinking about this after reading an article that discussed which countries have the most digital natives. The article was pretty interesting, and drew on information from the recent UN International Telecommunications Union (UTI) study that looked at the proportion of young people in each country that grew up with the internet.
At first, I figured that the results of this study would be pretty obvious. First world countries with large populations and higher birth rates would be at the top of the list. After all, lots of kids + money for technology = more kids using technology, right? I was really interested when the results were not quite what I thought.
If you’re interested, you can find a pdf of the entire UTI report here, but they have also created an infographic with some of the more interesting data points. Keep reading to learn more.

The “Promises” of Online Higher Education: Profits. With so much national focus on the “promises” of online higher education to expand access and to reduce costs, one truth about online higher education rarely mentioned is that it is big—Very Big—business.
Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are the hot new trend in online education (at least in the US). I'm one week into my second MOOC through Coursera, and here are some thoughts on the experience. In general, I think ...

After covering the two new MOOC players in the European market, let’s switch continents and go to Brazil, where Veduca is taking up steam in its mission to conquer the LatAm education market.
Founded in 2011 Veduca started by subtitling video lectures from leading universities which were freely available as part of the OpenCourseWare movement. The idea was to give Brazilians access to lectures in English as only 2% of those learners understand English well enough to make use of those videos according to Carlos Souza, one of the founders of Veduca.
After initially bootstrapping their startup and showing quick user growth, the team was able to raise their first $750k seed round led by Mountain do Brazil (now Bolt Ventures) with the participation of 500 Startups and Macmillan Digital Education. This week Veduca raised a $500k follow-up round from the same investors.
While the funding is only a tiny fraction of what we have seen in the rounds of Coursera, edX, and Udacity, Veduca managed to grow its offering to over 5,700 video lectures from 17 universities, four of them from Brazil. And here it gets really interesting.

According to ABC News, Pinterest is currently among the top social websites that are highly utilized in the classroom. To cope up with the increasing demand, the creators of the social page announced last month their ‘Teachers in Pinterest’ campaign, a page where teachers can collaborate together about tips and lesson plans.
The app version of the website is also critically acclaimed by many websites such as CNET.com. In fact, Verizon Wireless provided an almost 5-star rating for the application based on data usage, security, and battery usage. Read more about it atwww.verizonwireless.com.

Siempre he defendido que la formación a distancia, el eLearning y cualquiera otra modalidad educativa que evite la presencialidad, ni funciona para todo y mucho menos para todos. Es así como aquellas acciones formativas que tienen momentos presenciales periódicos, tienen posiblemente mayor audiencia que las que son totalmente a distancia.
My name is Erna and I’m an intern at Saffron Interactive. After reading our last blog post about MOOCs, I became curious and thought I’d give it a go and enrol in one of them. After browsing the catalogues of courses starting in October on Edx, Coursera, Udacity and CourseSites, I signed up for Crafting an Effective Writer: Tools of the Trade.

The European Credit Transfer System provides a legal basis for the creation of an online marketplace for academic credit that could be exploited by massive open online course providers, a conference has heard.
Hannes Klöpper, managing director of the new German Mooc platform iversity, also said he believed that Europe’s burgeoning community of online providers was better placed than US organisations to work with universities and offer academic credit to students.
Speaking at Making Sense of the Moocs, a conference held in Brussels on 10 October, Mr Klöpper unveiled a plan that he believed could lead to European platforms offering a large range of for-credit courses within two years.
