ricklibrarian: Technology's Future at Public Libraries: Staying Relevant in the Digital Age: a PLA Program | Tech Lounge | Scoop.it

Most of the news is good when it comes to technology and libraries, according to the latest report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Contrary to the idea that new technology would displace libraries, Lee Rainieof the Pew Charitable Trust reports that Americans are still in love with their libraries. What's even more remarkable is that people who have taken to new devices like libraries more than people who have not. Most of the tech savvy have not abandoned libraries. Instead, they keep libraries as one of their channels of content.

The Google Of Ed Search: Will Using Your Noodle Generate A Better College Fit?

The Google Of Ed Search: Will Using Your Noodle Generate A Better College Fit? | Tech Lounge | Scoop.it
John Katzman – founder of education resource hub The Princeton Review and CEO of education search engine Noodle.org – begs to differ. Katzman believes that the next phase of search evolution will occur within specialized content sectors such as education, which, he argues, generalized search engines are not nimble, personalized, and social enough to efficiently deliver.

Online learning environments in higher education: Connectivism vs. dissociation - by @983reese

Online learning environments in higher education: Connectivism vs. dissociation - by @983reese | Tech Lounge | Scoop.it

Over the last decade online education has emerged as a way for students and faculty to collaborate more freely, attain greater flexibility, and utilize new media to learn. The burning debate lies in whether online educational options are harmful to traditional education or offer endless benefits necessary to accommodate a 21st century learner. Supporters of virtual learning environments suggest that 21st century learners require the construction and creation capabilities offered through Web 2.0 to succeed while critics suggest that asynchronous interactions are not engaging and rigorous enough for higher education. A balanced online environment should provide a blend of both asynchronous and synchronous opportunities, which promote communication and collaboration among classmates and instructors.

Steven Verjans's curator insight, January 26, 2014 4:25 AM

An interesting article by Sarah Reese, in which she discusses benefits and drawbacks of the current online education hype, and suggests requirements for the virtual learning environment in modern higher education. Not really evidence-based, but a good argumentation nevertheless.

Eduardo Hamuy's curator insight, February 1, 2014 5:26 AM

El aprendizaje en los EVA de la educación superior, parece proponer este libro, debe combinar interacciones sincrónicas y asíncronas. En conjunto logran el compromiso y la profundidad requeridas.
