It looks great! I just took the tour and thought it has potential, so I subscribed as a beta user. Let's wait until I use it with my students!

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight: 

An interesting search engine directly used for educational purposes. It creates a mediated yet reciprocial intimacy between students and teachers outside the classroom environment. I'm quite fascinated with how students can engage in different lessons or levels according to the different teaching they would prefer.:) But alas! It would take quite a while before it kicks off here.

Google drive really helps to shorten your working day. It cuts down the number of email you have to send. I keeps everything in memory so accessible from any time any where...And what is most important for many of us, might save you from the frequent: "I lost my portable hard drive"

A higher education avalanche is coming, says new report - University World News

A higher education avalanche is coming, says new report - University World News | Rob Watson on Education | Scoop.it

Higher education requires “deep, radical and urgent transformation”, says a just-published report from the UK’s Institute for Public Policy Research. A new phase of competitive intensity is emerging, technology is changing and the traditional university is under pressure from, among others, private providers and MOOCs.

In the report, An Avalanche is Coming: Higher education and the revolution ahead, authors* Sir Michael Barber, Katelyn Donnelly and Saad Rizvi write that last century’s models of higher education are broken.
