Meetings feature more substance about education technology

Education technology can help higher education up its game. But adaptive learning, digital badges and free online courses don’t spell doom for colleges. And plenty of yeomanlike work needs to be done before those innovations can reach their potential.

Alberto Acereda, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 13, 2014 2:03 PM

From the article: "Money and school choice aside, however, which should matter more: the knowledge a job candidate may have acquired during the course of an academic career or how he or she uses it? It’s heartening to know that a majority of those 623 business surveyed leaders think the latter."

Sarah Yarborough's curator insight, March 13, 2014 3:17 PM

This article was very meaningful to me, mainly because this is an issue I have been struggling with this entire year. CSU Channel Islands was not my first choice school by any means. I had dreams of attending a UC my entire life. So, I worked diligently throughout high school, and subsequently graduated as a valedictorian with a 4.2 gpa. But unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get me to a UC or Cal Poly SLO because of the cost. My parents are able to support my college funds, but only to a certain degree. So, I chose to be rational, save money, and come to school here. And I was somewhat embarrased of that- all my friends were off to UCSB, UCLA, and Stanford while I was stuck at a Cal State. I was worried it would affect my future, specifically my acceptance into graduate school. However, I'm starting to realize that a degree is a degree, and most people, in reality, could care less about where you recieved it.

Competency-based education (CBE) continues to gain favor across higher education because of its ability to get students to degree completion faster, cheaper, and on a flexible learning schedule. However, adapting or creating a competency-based education programs require institutions to rethink the traditional education model.

Much change, some progress dominate second annual Online Learning Summit | teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Top-ranking university officials and ed-tech company executives reconvened at the University of California at Berkeley after a turbulent year for massive open online courses. During the the day-and-a-half-long summit, organized by Berkeley, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University, speakers seemed to follow an everything-but-MOOCs approach to online education on campus.

New Book: Invasion of the MOOCs

New Book: Invasion of the MOOCs | teaching and learning | Scoop.it

This new book offers twenty-one essays that reflect the complexity of the very definition of what is (and what might in the near future be) a “MOOC,” along with perspectives and opinions that move far beyond the polarizing debate about MOOCs that has occupied the media in previous accounts. Toward that end, Invasion of the MOOCs reflects a wide variety of impressions about MOOCs from the most recent past and projects possibilities about MOOCs for the not so distant future.

What will universities monetize in the future? | teaching and learning | Scoop.it

The teaching leg of the stool is seeing stress. Open online courses now make lectures of faculty from elite universities accessible to learners around the world. This leaves assessment as the last leg of economic value. The badges and competency-based learning movement may challenge assessment, but at this point it remains reasonably secure.
