Paul Gagnon's insight:

I like his top 10 recommendations very much especially the suggestion to abolish residency requirements...well give it a read and see if you agree. As for tenure, I continue to think that universities should offer two tracks: the teaching track and the full research track. But as a Dean of Enginnering and I agreed last week: ' it's easier to move a mountain, than a university.'

How Online Education Has Changed In 10 Years - Edudemic | Student-Centric Learning | Scoop.it
We all know that education, specifically online education, has come a long way in the last few years. This infographic details the key things to know.
Paul Gagnon's insight:

An interesting Infographic on the changes. The key point for me was that students continue to not succeed because they cannot take responsibility for their own learning. We return to the idea that the 2 essentials for learning remain paramount: engagement and time on task. These were well established in the landmark study back in the late 80's entitled: Fifteen Thousand Hours.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Student-Centric Learning | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.
