How to Change Education - From the Ground Up with Sir Ken Robinson

This is the full webcast from the RSA Event on Monday, 1 July 2013. World-renowned educationalist Sir Ken Robinson delivers the long-awaited follow-up to his now legendary 'Changing Education Paradigms' talk.

verstelle's insight:

Beautiful. 

Sir Ken Robinsons message: Don´t wait for politicians to change the system: change it bottom up. Rock & Roll was'nt invented by politicians either, but did change music.  Education is allready changing too.

A new classification schema for MOOCs

This paper considers the pedagogies associated with different types of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). It argues that the current discourse around the concept of xMOOCs (primarily based around interaction with content and essentially adopting a behaviourist learning approach), and cMOOCs (which focus on harnessing the power of social media and interaction with peers, adopting a connectivist learning approach), is an inadequate way of describing the variety of MOOCs and the ways in which learners engage with them. It will provide a brief history of the emergence of MOOCs and the key stakeholders. It will introduce an alternative means of categorising MOOCs, based on their key characteristics...

Online education platform EdCast puts universities in charge of their content @insidehighered

verstelle's insight:

it would be easy to confuse EdCast for yet another MOOC platform. But in an interview with Inside Higher Ed, Karl Mehta, the entrepreneur and venture capitalist behind the company, distanced himself from that comparison.

“Current platforms out there have not been able to support multiple university efforts of the same course,” Mehta said. “They are individual destination sites where institutions put up a course, but they don’t allow multiple institutions to collaborate on one course.... We haven’t seen anyone doing that -- or even the vision of -- connecting both the public and the on-campus.”

The Case for Banning Laptops in the Classroom - The New Yorker

The Case for Banning Laptops in the Classroom - The New Yorker | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
A colleague of mine in the department of computer science at Dartmouth recently sent an e-mail to all of us on the faculty. The subject line read: “Ban computers in the classroom?” The note that followed was one sentence long: “I finally saw the light today and propose we ban the use of laptops in class.” While the sentiment in my colleague’s e-mail was familiar, the source was surprising: it came from someone teaching a programming class, where computers are absolutely integral to learning and teaching. Surprise turned to something approaching shock when, in successive e-mails, I saw that his opinion was shared by many others in the department.

5 Things Researchers Have Discovered About MOOCs – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
verstelle's insight:

1. If you are isolated, poor, and enamored of the prestigious university offering the MOOC you’re taking, you are less likely to complete it.

2. Coaching students to have a healthier mindset about learning may not help in a MOOC.

3. Paired with the right incentives, MOOCs can help prepare at-risk students for college-level work.

4. Discussion forums in MOOCs are healthy places for the few students who use them.

5. We still do not know if doing well in MOOCs will help underprivileged learners become upwardly mobile.

De NVAO lijkt het niet waarschijnlijk dat MOOCs in Nederland en Vlaanderen binnen afzienbare tijd worden geaccrediteerd. De NVAO acht het wel mogelijk dat er een gedeelde perceptie groeit van wat bepalend is voor een “goede” MOOC.

MOOC on MOOCs? A novel yet pragmatic approach - University World News

MOOC on MOOCs? A novel yet pragmatic approach - University World News | Open and online learning | Scoop.it

The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, or IIT-K, and the Commonwealth of Learning in Vancouver have teamed up again to offer a novel MOOC that is focused on the design of the course itself. Entitled “MOOC on MOOCs: What you need to know about massive open online courses”, it is aimed at addressing the nuts and bolts of designing and running a MOOC.


Via Robert Schuwer
verstelle's insight:

"“We can’t beat world class providers like edX in terms of a platform, but we can beat them in terms of content. In thought and design, we can be as good as anybody else.” 

Moving away from a focus on personal interest towards real world application may be the right model for the context in which institutions of learning and human development operate in India and other middle-income countries. Government support may also be key to add financial support and legitimacy to these ventures.

In the end, however, superior completion rates to those MOOCs in North America will be the defining outcome. 

“MOOC on MOOCs” places focus on application with the direct intent of supporting academics and other professionals to advance their own MOOC agendas. The ongoing monitoring of this course will certainly reveal novel ideas."

The Real Legacy of MOOCs: Better Introductory Courses | Mediashift | PBS | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
Just...
verstelle's insight:

Why this new attention on the student experience in introductory courses? Much of the credit should go to MOOCs. No college or university can today afford to offer an introductory course for its paying students that is not of superior quality to what the same students can get for free from an open online course. If a campus-based introductory course is no better than a MOOC, students (and their parents) will begin to vote with their feet.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 29, 12:02 AM

No university can today afford to offer an introductory course for its paying students that is not of superior quality to what the same students can get for free from an open online course - this is something that needs to be considered. You can do introductory courses in all sorts of things - and it is actually ok if you do not finish them. I wonder if all universities will go MOOCs for their introductory subjects in a few years? I have studied online for the last 2 and a half years and honestly do not see what the benefit of going to the campus would be (plus, I don't have the time).

omooc ‘waar is de overheid van?’

Vanaf 28 augustus komt acht weken lang elke donderdag om 12 uur ‘s middags een nieuw online college over ‘waar is de overheid van?’.

Online colleges met frisse inzichten van o.a. Martijn Aslander, Kim Putters, Jos van der Lans, Albert Jan Kruiter, Mark Hillen, Chris Sigaloff en Sadik Harchaoui. Zij spreken over het einde van de overheid zoals we hem kennen, over de vijf reuzeproblemen die de decentralisaties moeten oplossen. En over oplossingen: over een nieuw afwegingskader voor maatwerk, over het radicaal anders financieren van maatschappelijke vraagstukken en hoe we kunnen innoveren van innovatie voor maatschappelijke impact.

Business School, Disrupted

Business School, Disrupted | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
In moving into online education, Harvard Business School discovered that it isn’t so easy to practice what it teaches.
verstelle's insight:

What strikes me most was this fact about the University of Wisconsin’s business school: the dean "has changed his school’s incentive structure, which, as in most of academia, was based primarily on the number of research articles published in elite journals. Now professors who can’t crack those journals but “have a gift for inspiring learning,” he said, in person or online, are being paid as top performers, too. “We are now rewarding people who have tenure to give up on research,” Mr. Ortalo-Magné said.

Erkenning van non-formeel leren in een MOOC

Erkenning van non-formeel leren in een MOOC | Open and online learning | Scoop.it
Robert | Open Educational Resources
verstelle's insight:

Schuwer beschrijft in deze blogpost een discussie over erkenning van MOOCs en de rol van de ECTS guide daarbij:

 

Voor erkenning van een MOOC werden drie zaken uiteindelijk van belang gevonden:

Voldoende vertrouwen in de identificatie en authenticatie van de aanvrager bij het volgen van de MOOCDe vorm van assessmentAanwezigheid van een adequate beschrijving van de MOOC in termen van leerdoelen, omvang, niveau et cetera.Ten aanzien van punt 3 werd gewezen op de ECTS-guide. Deze guide bevat (p. 28) een aanbeveling voor een beschrijving van een te accrediteren/beoordelen cursus. Deze kan voor het grootste deel ook worden gebruikt voor beschrijving van een MOOC. De guide wordt momenteel gereviseerd. Bij die revisie zullen onder meer aanpassingen aan nieuwe ontwikkelingen worden doorgevoerd.
