For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | Learning in the digital age | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information.

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | Learning in the digital age | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.
