Interesante forma de enseñar a los estudiantes como escribir mejor invitándolos a desarrollar textos digitales. Las diferentes herramientas que hoy existen para impulsar el "digital writing" hacen posible producir interesantes historias como "Snow Fall" (http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2012/snow-fall/#/?part=tunnel-creek).

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Greatest expenses for the State: Medical and Education.

 

That's why anything in these domains that helps explain how the Internet is going to make those enormous savings in the next years (e.g. through "self-medication" diagnosing oneself with the help of online medical expert systems https://www.google.ch/search?q=+medical+expert+systems&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=K9dQU9W5EO7W8gfd7ICACg or through "self-education" just in the knowledge you need through systems like this here over) is to take in the newest or modern history curriculum.

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay) | Inside Higher Ed

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay) | Inside Higher Ed | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The “flipped classroom” is the idea of the moment, advocated by everyone from  Bill Gates to Eric Mazur, the pioneering science educator. This educational  innovation is exciting and promising – but I’d argue for a slight revision to  the discourse to make sure we don’t replace one rigid format with another. My  suggestion: let’s scramble, not flip, the classroom.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

Flipping, Blending OR Scrambling?? Whatever be the term, what is good for our students is the need to use both "direct instruction" and "facilitated practice" to intentionally help students meet our learning goals.

Like the way the article summarizes --- "The principles are old and valuable, but they haven't been usable because of constraints of time and effort on the parts of both students and teacher. It is the possibility of implementing these key principles that is new, and often enabled by technology's ability to capture their essence."

summary by SmartBrief for the Higher Education Leader

 

"A new university that offers a unique approach to online learning is the result of a partnership between the Minerva Project and California's Keck Graduate Institute. The new Minerva Schools of KGI, opening this fall, requires students to spend their first year living in a San Francisco residence hall, taking their courses online together in "real time." Throughout the following three years, students will be required to move to Minerva residence halls in other cities. "Experiential learning is all about interacting with the world around you," Minerva Project Chairman Ben Nelson said."
