International students: how are you celebrating Christmas?

International students: how are you celebrating Christmas? | Higher education News | Scoop.it

Driving Home for Christmas is the one song guaranteed to make me well up at Christmas. All those adverts of families coming together around the dinner table make me miss my family to the point of sappiness – and they only live two hours away on the train. So what’s it like to be an international student if you can’t get home for Christmas – celebrating in a foreign country away from your family?

Are research sandpits a good way to allocate public funding to research?

Are research sandpits a good way to allocate public funding to research? | Higher education News | Scoop.it

There aren’t a lot of women professors around, particularly in science and engineering. Figures from the Higher Education Statistic Agency (HESA) indicate that only one in five professors are women, even though women make up half of the rest of the academic workforce. There are many reasons for this, but here’s a contributing factor which deeply irritates me: research council sandpits.

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education?

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education? | Higher education News | Scoop.it

We’re living in a Web 2.5 kinda world. If that makes no sense to you, check out this chart. It shows that Web 2.0 consists of cautiously adopting technology, schools are still online and offline, and parents still view school as daycare. But we’re evolving past that in short order (in education’s typical pace, that is). So what is Web 3.0 and how will it change education? What does that even mean?

This is an excellent graphic. We are still in 1.0 mode, talking 2.0, and little evidence of 3.0

The web is another way of gathering information. You can also use books from the library or bookshop. I would not like to live in a world where I did not have the choice. Many of these examples of web learning miss out on important details, for which you need books.
