Why the idea digital devices destroy our concentration and memory is a myth | New Learning - Ny læring | Scoop.it
Every time I participate in a discussion of educators , sooner or later I will encounter the lament that “sadly ours is an Age of Distraction”. The conviction that we live in an age of distraction has acquired the status of an incontrovertible truth. Teachers and commentators regularly contend that the younger generations have lost the capacity to concentrate because of the distracting technology available. Adults are also said to be afflicted by the disabling effects of their distracted minds.

The Class: A New Book About Living & Learning in the Digital Age

The Class: A New Book About Living & Learning in the Digital Age | New Learning - Ny læring | Scoop.it
Our book is about a class of 13- to 14-year-olds at an ordinary urban secondary school in London, England. It is a famously tricky age, difficult for parents and teachers, and for the young people themselves. In conducting the research, we became increasingly curious about what young people want, how do they see the world, and how do they find a path through the opportunities and constraints they face?

Guidelines for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of MOOCs

Guidelines for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of MOOCs | New Learning - Ny læring | Scoop.it
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have emerged as an educational innovation with the potential to increase access to and improve the quality of education. Different stakeholders in education view MOOCs from different perspectives. However, there are common questions related to the quality of these courses and to the granting of equivalent credits. This document provides a set of guidelines designed to support decision making about the sorts of quality measures that are appropriate in different contexts. These MOOC Quality Guidelines can be used by governments, accreditation agencies, institutions and learners with an interest in developing, running, accrediting or participating in MOOCs, to improve quality assurance (QA) and accreditation.
