Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Preview

NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Preview | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

There is an overarching sense in the academic world that research is first, while teaching is an obligation that must be performed. Because of this way of thinking, efforts to implement effective pedagogies are lacking. Adjunct professors and students feel the brunt of this challenge, as teaching-only contracts are underrated and underpaid, and learners must accept the outdated teaching styles of the university’s primary researchers.

Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights | Wired.com

Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Education 3.0 is “the curve” that we need to jump now. We need to look ahead and not backward as we figure out how to make education something meaningful — special for our students.

 

We have to learn how to embrace technology as the ultimate empowering agent, not as a competitor or loss-of-control agent. The point is, the lower the usage of technology in classrooms, the harder it is to teach 21st century skills. When academics ignore a future that is not just technology intensive, but dependent, our graduates go into life under-prepared (if not unprepared) to work, live, and thrive.

A Look into the Near Future (of the Virtual Classroom)

 

As we look at the lessons from the virtual classroom that we have learned thus far - some of them painful, others positive - we continue to think about what the future holds for online education.  What can institutions, instructors, and their students expect to see over the next few years as online learning becomes an even greater part of not only the academy but the K-12 world as well?  Although there continue to be no certain answers to these questions, we suspect that we will see more changes in the following areas: technology, course, and program quality and development; professional development; the ways in which faculty and students interact; and increased research into online education.  As we explore each of these, we begin to fit together the pieces of the mosaic that is the future of online education and higher education as a whole. 

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

This article looks at what might be in store in the next few years for online education. Taken from the book, "Lessons from the Virtual Classroom: The Realities of Online Teaching", by Rena M. Palloff & Keith Pratt, eds.

A key will be that students need to learn when and how to use technology responsibly. This will require adults who are able to setting excellent examples for students. It will be about learning together rather than teaching and learning as two separate concepts.

 

We will need leadership not management in education.

Academic Transformation: It’s About Technology, With a Capital “T”

Academic Transformation: It’s About Technology, With a Capital “T” | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

New technological innovations have been bursting onto the educational scene for more than a century, but they are rarely created or introduced in such a way that promises real change

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

The issue highlighted in this article is important!

"... simply introducing a new tool, technique or system into an educational context changes nothing unless we first understand the need it is intended to fill and how to capitalize on its unique capabilities to address that need. In the absence of this understanding, educators tend to rely on techniques they already know."

Why I Love Conferencing Online with My Traditional Classroom Students

A few weeks ago, I had to accompany my husband out of town for a week of medical tests. That meant my presence was required in two places at once: in my classroom and at the hospital. I didn’t want to cancel classes, so I decided to try something new. I arranged to meet with each of my students online for about 15 minutes to discuss the first draft of their first composition paper.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.
