European Commission laments education sector's lack of ICT skills

European Commission laments education sector's lack of ICT skills | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Many teachers are ill-equipped to teach students IT-related subjects, according to a survey by the European Commission.

The study featured 190,000 responses from 27 European countries and concluded that access to skilled and confident ICT teachers is more important than being able to use the latest equipment.

However, across the countries surveyed, teacher training in ICT is rarely compulsory, meaning many teachers have to use their spare time to develop these skills.

How to Protect Your WordPress From Attack

How to Protect Your WordPress From Attack | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

An ongoing brute-force attack on WordPress-based websites has compromised more than 90,000 blogs, but there are simple ways to make sure your blog won't be next to fall.

Brute-force attacks, as their name would suggest, are some of the least sophisticated hacks out there, rapidly cycling through common directory names, passwords and IP addresses in order to access private files through sheer dumb luck.

The bad news is that such attacks happen to WordPress blogs tens of thousands of times per day; the good news is that stopping them cold is simplicity itself.

MOOCs do not represent the best of online learning

MOOCs do not represent the best of online learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Thus far little attention has been paid to the quality of MOOCs. Quality in online learning can be defined in many ways: quality of content, quality of design, quality of instructional delivery, and, ultimately, quality of outcomes. On the face of it, the organizing principles of MOOCs are at odds with widely observed best practices in online education, including those advocated by my organization, the Quality Matters Program. Many of the first MOOCs are providing quality of content, but are far behind the curve in providing quality of design, accountable instructional delivery, or sufficient resources to help the vast majority of students achieve a course’s intended learning outcomes.

John Purificati's curator insight, April 30, 2013 6:43 AM

Thanks for this article. I tend to agree that MOOCs are not all they're cracked up to be.

Gina Anderson CEO Mopi16 's comment, May 2, 2013 9:46 AM
I think it depends on how MOOCs are designed, implemented and evaluated and how you define "success".
Gina Anderson CEO Mopi16 's curator insight, May 2, 2013 9:48 AM

I think it depends on how MOOCs are designed, implemented and evaluated and how you define "success". In other words, how are you comparing and evaluating the two? Hmm...

Interactive whiteboard for primary schools in Mauritius: An effective tool or just another trend?

Interactive whiteboard for primary schools in Mauritius: An effective tool or just another trend? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Authors:

Goonesh Kumar Asvin Bahadur, University of Mauritius, Mauritius

Deorani Oogarah, Primary School, Mauritius


Mauritius is among the few African countries where the interactive whiteboard has been implemented in all primary schools. This has been possible thanks to the Sankoré project, an initiative of Franco-British Summit and the Government of Mauritius.

The interactive whiteboard is an important tool in the classroom as it changes the mode of instruction.  In this research project, an educational learning tool was designed and mounted using XERTE which is an Open Source Authoring tool, to test whether interactive whiteboard can improve learning in schools.

Are Massive Open Online Courses Massive Opportunity or Massive Hype?

Are Massive Open Online Courses Massive Opportunity or Massive Hype? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Do MOOCs offer massive opportunity to move past the limited physical constrains of the developing world's universities?

Or are MOOCs just the latest fad in moving from the tried and true in-person relationship between professor and student? Do they replace in-depth analysis and learning with superficial glances at complex topics? Will MOOCs dilute the university degree even more, reducing higher education to just another certificate of perseverance instead of an indicator of intelligence?
