Four Ways Higher Education Can Change the K-12 Equation
Huffington Post
The needs of local employers vary by region, as do the passions, interests and learning styles of individual students.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Staying in tune with the educational needs of the local community is critical. It is also critical to make education available within a time frame that is practical. Telling workers to quit a job or take a semester off  to complete a undergraduate or masters degree is not practical. Many have wasted money and time to work towards degrees that were impossible to complete as a working adult without quitting work. Schools that are not upfront with their limitations to serve a community and offer a way to totally complete the degree for a working adult will build an extremely bad reputation within the community.

Open Content Program (The Getty)

Open Content Program (The Getty) | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The Open Content Program provides free, unrestricted access to the Getty's digital resources.

 

Why Open Content?

The Getty adopted the Open Content Program because we recognized the need to share images of works of art for free and without restriction, so that all those who create or appreciate art—scholars, artists, art lovers, and entrepreneurs—will have greater access to high-quality digital images for their studies and projects. Art inspires us, and imagination and creativity lead to artistic expressions that expand knowledge and understanding. The Getty sincerely hopes that people will use the open content images for a wide range of activities and that they will share the fruits of their labors with others.

 

What's in Open Content?

Currently, there are more than 87,000 images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute available through the Open Content Program, including more than 72,000 from the Research Institute's Foto Arte Minore archive, which features photographs of the art and architecture of Italy over 30 years by German photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1913–1988). Other images include paintings, drawings, manuscripts, photographs, antiquities, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, watercolors, rare prints from the 16th through the 18th century, and 19th-century architectural drawings of cultural landmarks. Over time, images from the Getty Conservation Institute will be added, as well as more images from the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Getty Research Institute.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, September 26, 2014 6:38 AM

Only learners do the learning! They must recognise the value of the work, because learning can be hard work at times. Unless there is a good answer to the question, 'Why does this matter?' then student engagement will struggle and thus learning will tend to struggle. Get ready teachers, because this question will become more common as a curriculum or classroom question and the answer needs to resonate with the learners.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Not a bad way to inspire future visionaries. The world needs really fresh, new answers for the unique problems and conditions students today will face in the short and long term. Old traditional answers will not work this time unless we role our lifestyles back to the 1950s. We need to ideas, even those that we thought were working in the past were not really what we needed. We were not thinking of the impact and trade-off our creation would have on altering the life, livelihood and even the existence of species in what has turned out to be the very near future. "genius hour", complemented by informed studies and research, is just what we need to inspire more people to creatively think and wonder.
