The Innovative Educator: Don't Occupy Wall Street. Occupy Schools.

The Innovative Educator: Don't Occupy Wall Street. Occupy Schools. | On education | Scoop.it

All these people are out there at the one year anniversary of occupying Wall Street as if this is the reason they don't have jobs. Poor kids were duped into blaming and blocking what consists of a lot of average Joes putting in their 60 hours a week just doing what they know how to make a living. These protesters aren't occupying the real culprit behind the unfair economic system that benefits the rich and corporations at the expense of the rest of us...our public schools.

Chris Carter's curator insight, July 1, 9:53 PM

Both nature and nurture is my experience, in that nature provides the potential but the skill remains under-developed without nurturing.

4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS | Upside Learning Blog | On education | Scoop.it
More than 2 years back, I had carried out a SWOT analysis of the LMS to get some understanding on the LMS scenario.

Today, after the rapid evolution of the LMS – hastened by several factors, right from the inclusion of social learning tools, to an ever increasing need for usability – many things have changed, and still continue to change, in the LMS.

HOW TEACHERS CAN ASSESS GROUP WORK

 

By Katie Piper

Summary by The Accomplished Teacher

 

"Teachers can take steps to ensure students working in teams receive fair, individualized assessments, high-school social studies teacher Katie Piper writes in this blog post. She writes that the project-based learning model sometimes makes high-performing students uneasy about how grades will be assigned. Her tips include having students create portfolios identifying their roles, grading students on their individual roles in the projects and self- and peer evaluations."

Managing Learning Technology: How To Build MOOC's that Fail

Managing Learning Technology: How To Build MOOC's that Fail | On education | Scoop.it

Having started a half dozen MOOC's in the recent months, I have found most of them tend to share a common trait. Many MOOC's currently represent a sort of parody of higher education's worst practices, its most spectacular delusions about itself.

And thus they tend to fail--some rather spectacularly.

International educators debate mass vs. elite higher education | Inside Higher Ed | On education | Scoop.it

It's a not-so-pleasant word, with seemingly embedded implications of a lowering of standards, especially when contrasted, as it sometimes is, with the sort of "elite" and "world-class" higher education that countries or states or other entities are often portrayed as having to choose between.
