The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

10 tips to better handle the torrent of demands.

 

Over the course of a teaching day, most faculty members find themselves on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, iTunes, Blackboard (or its competitors), blogs, and e-mail. We manage a steady stream of online demands. Yet one of the most frequent complaints from students is that their instructors have "no online presence."

Let's experiment, but in assessing outcomes and cost savings, let's also insist on hard evidence.

 

A far more sophisticated observer of digital trends than I am, President John Hennessy of Stanford University, has been quoted as saying: "There's a tsunami coming. [But] I can't tell you exactly how it's going to break." Since I live on the East Coast, I am even less capable of judging tsunamis, their shape, their force, or their timing, but I, too, am convinced that online learningcould be truly transformative.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 27, 2013 11:37 PM

The role of mobile technology in producing content is significant: i have ditched my laptop in favour of the iPad, it’s my primary means of production, travelling with me everywhere and my favourite place to write. I record and edit my video learning bites on my iPhone and use mind mapping software to capture new ideas, as well as Apps like Paper and Adobe Ideas to create models. There’s nothing new in talking about mobile technolgoy as a means of production, but let’s just think about the social nature of the technology, the way that it follows me everywhere. The very nature of the devices impacts on what i write, the fact that i woke up this morning and checked Facebook in bed, took the iPad to Starbucks to draw the diagram over coffee and now am writing on the train.

A Truly Devastating Graph on State Higher Education Spending

A Truly Devastating Graph on State Higher Education Spending | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Some states have slashed per-student spending by as much as half.

 

Are you a fan of public higher education? Yes? Then prepare to be upset. Outraged even.

 

The chart below from the Center On Budget and Policy Prioritiesestimates how much each of the 50 states has slashed per-student funding for its university systems since the start of the recession, adjusted for inflation. In Arizona, where the cuts were the deepest, funding has been hacked in half. Nationwide, legislatures have sliced off 28 percent on average. Only two states -- Wyoming and oil-rich North Dakota -- have increased it, by the think tank's calculations.*

So if we could find a way to put administration online, to create Massive Online Open Administrations or MOOAs, we could really cut some fat and reap some serious rewards.

 

Think about it: MOOAs are the perfect solution to the rising cost of higher education. We take superstar administrators and let them administer tens, maybe even hundreds, of thousands of faculty at a time. The Ivy League and Nescac colleges could pool their upper management as could, say, Midwestern state colleges that start with “I” or “O.”
