Blogs are an excellent way of sharing ideas and reflecting on personal learning. I use a blog to also record my professional learning. By posting responses to or sharing articles I find I am trying to build a professional profile through my blog.

Thanks Ness, I will use this for a project where we are encouraging the use of blogging for reflections.

Questions about the future of higher education

Questions about the future of higher education | technology empowered networked learning | Scoop.it

The Conversation web site is currently half way through a series of invited posts entitled “The Future of Higher Education”. It has been a disappointing series so far in that five of the first six posts have focussed on MOOCS and the sixth has been a general post on equity in online learning. Now MOOCs are an important development but the future of higher education is bigger than MOOCs and the questions are much more fundamental. Here are are some questions that I think this series should be addressing..

"Personal learning networks are a great way for educators to get connected with learning opportunities, access professional development resources, and to build camaraderie with other education professionals.

 

"Although PLNs have been around for years, in recent years social media has made it possible for these networks to grow exponentially.

 

"Now, it’s possible to expand and connect your network around the world anytime, anywhere. But how exactly do you go about doing that?

 

"Check out our guide to growing your personal learning network with social media, full of more than 30 different tips, ideas, useful resources, and social media tools that can make it all possible."

Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:33 PM

This chart can be used for students as a guideline for the right mindset in dealing with their education. Students need the right mindset to achieve in schools and avoid the mental barriers preventing them from growth. I would probably use this chart in the beginning of the school year to show what I expect from my students.  This could be useful for the less motivated students in the class.

Requiem for a Heavyweight - Lessons to Learn from the Problems at UC Online

In 2009, the University of California finally decided to offer online education with a system-wide initiative called UC Online. Based on an article in the Chronicle that echoes a previous article in the Daily Californian, we learn that just three years later, UC Online is facing significant hurdles to survive the pilot phase and establish a sustainable online option. After raising just 1/8 of the promised private funding that would have avoided significant internal UC investment, UC Online has already borrowed $6.9 million from the system and is facing expenses of $7 million budget over the next year. Despite plans for 20 courses as of January 2012 for current UC students, UC Online has just eight courses available this fall (although only three are listed today). As the pilot expands in January 2013, there are serious questions about the feasibility of enrolling the thousands of non-UC students needed to avoid additional budget shortfalls.
