The Great Unbundling - Popping bundles, not bubbles | University Ventures Letters

The Great Unbundling - Popping bundles, not bubbles | University Ventures Letters | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"Bundling has been the primary way universities have managed to avoid the cost/benefit analyses consumers make for virtually every other purchase decision. Just as it has for music, unbundling would dramatically reduce per student revenue in higher education. In microeconomic terms, bundling captures surplus for producers. Unbundling moves some of that producer surplus to consumers and may create new consumer surplus.

 

"If colleges and universities are the next object of the Great Unbundling, many in higher education will see a dystopic future. For television networks, popular programs support new, innovative and struggling shows. For universities, we might see popular courses and programs thrive, while the rest are left to wither on the vine and institutions are less willing to take risks on new programs. In addition, in the world where the higher education consumer is king, it will be challenging to insist on gen ed. requirements, distributional requirements, and the precepts of a liberal arts education."

"Today’s classrooms may look similar in form to the classrooms of yesterday, but what’s happening in function is often a completely different story. Flipped learning, social media, iPads, educational technology, and collaborative learning are just a few of the ways our classrooms have changed in recent years, and teachers today will need to catch up to the new trends or risk being left behind. Teachers, we recommend that you add these important 21st century educator skills to your resume today."

Each school provides different education programs. This allows there to be much difference when people apply for jobs. The skills that students gain are more broad and different from other students. This depends upon what school they attended and what teachers were there.

The Week University (As We Know It) Ended | Huffington Post

The Week University (As We Know It) Ended | Huffington Post | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

By Don Tapscott

 

"For many years I've been writing about how the Internet and new models of pedagogy will bring an end to the university's monopoly on higher education.

 

"Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.

 

"It's happening right now. We may even remember this week as the turning point. If there is one issue that is buzzing through Davos like a prairie fire among thoughtful people, it's that the time has finally come to reinvent higher learning.

 

"The big three companies that provide the technology of free online learning -- Coursera, Udacity and edX -- are all present at Davos, and are jubilant in and out of sessions. Coursera just announced it will soon be offering more than 200 free massive open online courses, or MOOCs, in conjunction with more than 33 universities. Having opened for business just five months ago, the company already has more than 1.3 million students."

Jim Lerman's insight:

More reporting from the Davos forum. It's become pretty clear that the earth is shifting under universities' feet at an astonishing pace -- the fact that the media and the self-proclaimed intelligensia have now discovered it is merely proof of what others have seen and known for quite some time.

"Technology alone may not motivate students, but projects that allow students to utilize technology to make a positive difference in the world can entice them to both work and learn, teacher Bill Ferriter writes in this blog post. With the Common Core State Standards in nonfiction in mind, Ferriter had his students research the soda ban in New York City and create a blog for tweens about making healthy food choices. "They are also learning about the role that graphics can play in changing minds, learning about convincing statistics and reliable sources, and learning that learning can ACTUALLY be fun," Ferriter writes."

The Shift From Cohorts to Competency - Digital Learning Now

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 31, 2013 10:18 PM

What would happen if education shifted away from the cohort system that is used to one based on competency? This report looks at this issue in depth. The page that is linked to includes a full report, an executive summary, a link to the infographic (of which part is shown here), and a link to download the infographic. 

Perhaps the first question to ask is what is competency education? 

"CompetencyWorks defines competency education as a system of education, often referred to as proficiency or mastery based, in which students advance upon mastery. Competencies include explicit, measurable, transferable learning objectives that empower students. Assessment is meaningful and serves as a positive learning experience for students. Students receive timely, differentiated support tailored to their individual learning needs. Learning outcomes include the application and creation of knowledge, along with the development of important skills and dispositions."

For a quick overview check out the infographic, which discusses:

* Why Competency?
* What's Wrong with the Current System?

* 10 Design Choices

* 10 New Capabilities of a Competency-Aligned System

* What Does Competency Education Mean for Students?

Inequality in American Education Will Not Be Solved Online

Inequality in American Education Will Not Be Solved Online | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

By Ian Bogost

 

"One night recently, it was raining hard as I drove to pick my son up from an evening class at the Atlanta Ballet. Like many cities, Atlanta's roads are in terrible condition after years of neglect. Lane divider paint is so worn as to become invisible in the wet darkness, potholes litter the pavement. But this time the danger was magnified: on large stretches of Interstates 75 and 85, two major freeways that intersect the city, the streetlights were completely extinguished.

 

"There are ways to fix such dangers. One option would involve allocating public funds to repair and revitalize the infrastructure in question. Of course, such services are difficult in an era of reduced tax revenues and massive public resistance to financial support of infrastructural projects in the first place. So another option might involve hiring private companies -- not to repair the broken roads and streetlamps, but to provide separate paved surfaces and illumination services to those who might choose to drive in conditions of wetness and/or darkness. After all, we're living in an age when traversable roads have become fiscally unviable. What choice do we have?

 

"Such is essentially the logic the state of California has adopted in its plan to offer online classes in the California State University System, a deal the state has struck with "massively open online course" (MOOC) provider Udacity.

The startup, which has received more than $15 million in funding from Silicon Valley venture capitalists, will provide online classes in remedial and introductory subjects for students at San Jose State University (SJSU), in exchange for an undisclosed sum from the state.

 

"In essence, San Jose State will be allocating funds that would have otherwise been distributed to the school from state coffers or student tuition or both and routing it to a for-profit company for outsourced teaching services. SJSU's provost struck the deal because of a "crisis" in which, according to The New York Times, more than half of the school's entering students lack basic knowledge in subjects like elementary math and English."

Arizona St. and Knewton's grand experiment with adaptive learning | Inside Higher Ed

Arizona St. and Knewton's grand experiment with adaptive learning  | Inside Higher Ed | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

By Steve Kolwich

 

"As companies such as Pearson and Knewton work their way closer to the core of the university mission, legal distinctions between the nonprofit institutions and for-profit vendors are melting away.

 

“The Family Compliance Office has recognized that institutions can designate other entities, including vendors and consultants, as ‘other school officials,’ ” reads Knewton’s contract with Arizona State. “Designated representatives of Knewton will be designated as ‘other school officials’ for the purposes of this agreement.”

 

"Many institutions see intimate partnerships with vendors as necessary to competing in the 21st century. But as personal data becomes the currency of the information economy, others see the companies -- which, like Knewton, are often backed by Silicon Valley venture capitalists — as interlopers that might wish to exploit student learning data for profit, despite their reassurances to the contrary.

 

"Meanwhile the stakes of who sees a student’s education record, and what they do with it, have never been higher. Under a Knewton regime a student’s “education record” would not just comprise a transcript and some grades; it would be a “psychometric profile”: a strategic blueprint of her brain, describing her relationship to every single concept in every Knewton-powered course she takes, along with a raft of insights on how she absorbs and retains different kinds of ideas.

 

"In the hands of Arizona State instructors or Knewton’s engineers, this information could be used to improve teaching and learning. In the hands of outside companies, it could be used to fashion more effective advertising campaigns.

 

"The company hopes to roll out the individual user profiles sometime this year. Students would be able to log in and view their own profiles via a password-protected part of the company’s website. The point of the profiles, says Ferreira, would be to give students insights into their own learning styles -- insights that would compound over time as students took more Knewton-powered courses."

Hype vs. Hope - San Jose State + Udacity vs. Linn State Technical College | University Ventures Letters

Hype vs. Hope - San Jose State + Udacity vs. Linn State Technical College | University Ventures Letters | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"In this regard, it would be extremely useful if a different state college received even a fraction of the attention San Jose State has received. Sadly, this institution – Linn State Technical College – is located in Missouri, far from the bright lights of Silicon Valley. But attention should be paid as Linn State has been doing something remarkable for the past four years.

 

"After consulting with employers, Linn State determined that the traditional GPA had limited utility. Beyond a B-average, employers were much more focused on student outcomes that the college wasn’t tracking. So starting in 2009, alongside GPA, Linn State began reporting a Job Readiness score for each course. The rubric employed by Linn State faculty includes punctuality, interpersonal skills, work habits, trust, and citizenship. According to the college, “little if anything has received as much positive reaction from employers. With the Linn State Technical College mission being to ‘prepare students for profitable employment and a life of learning,’ this bold cutting-edge initiative is an unparalleled service to students.”

 

"So while it would be a stupendous achievement if Udacity and other MOOC providers are able to develop and deploy a model that can successfully remediate math and reading at scale, we need to step back and look at the bigger picture: A more powerful (and much more realistic) achievement would be to put society’s needs and judgments ahead of those of higher education institutions, and focus on propagating Linn State’s innovation across all colleges and universities."

Jim Lerman's insight:

I find this newsletter from University Ventures to contain some of the most incisive thinking about higher education today, around the globe. While publications such as the Chronicle of Higher Education and Inside Higher Education offer excellent news coverage, UV provides a sharply focused lens through which it interprets the meaning and direction of what is taking place. I will be making the UV Letter a regular part of my reading.

Often the complaint or stopping point in the development for community level competency training at the industry endorsed level ... "We can't check competency online!".

 

There are really plenty of options though, from "selfie" videos of presentation delivery or skill demonstration, web-conference with video, Skype, FaceTime, YouTube upload, viewing and selecting the correct/incorrect video from a list ... the simple fact that creating video for distribution/sharing is almost too easy - a simple Press Here to publish online sometimes - means there really shoudn't be any need not to progress the online competency assessment model.

"If you are tired of the ever-increasing shallowness of Facebook, search for a better place. A quieter place. The web and the information delugeit puts us through can stifle our thinking. Just like you need to take off for the countryside once in a while to reclaim your zeal and zest, you also need to move away from the cacophony on the web and move to a quieter corner.  That is, if pulling the plug isn’t an option. The second best course is to feed your brain some intelligent fodder.

 

"My friend Justin talked about why our information diet is probably terrible. But does it need to be? Intelligent picks from the vast web can refresh and inspire our day. And what could be more inspiring than taking a peek into the lives of both ordinary and extraordinary people with insights.

"Questions of why creators create, how they structure their days, and where they look for inspiration hold a strange kind of mesmerism over us mere mortals, an elusive promise of somehow reverse-engineering and absorbing genius through voyeurism. In 2003, artist Joe Fig began interviewing famous painters about how, where, and why they do what they do. The result was Inside the Painter’s Studio (UK; public library) — an anthology of 24 conversations with some of today’s most revered contemporary artists.

Why Edtech is Not Radical Enough | Ed Surge

Why Edtech is Not Radical Enough | Ed Surge | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

By Leonard Medlock

 

"News bulletin to all edtech entrepreneurs who pride themselves on pushing the envelope: There's a group of a teachers who are out in front of you. In fact, they're so far out front that one of their biggest worries is that most of education technology is building software around exactly the kind of practices they would like to see schools abandon. The main thing these radical education thinkers would like to glean from entrepreneurs is not new products but their way of thinking and designing. 

 

"That particularly edgy point of view was the undercurrent of last week's EduCon  conference which called itself “Hacking Entrepreneurship”--a playful jab at all the "hacking education" efforts that have won mindshare over the past two years. The conference, held at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, and its  deep-dive into the real-life successes, failures, barriers and enablers of learning in the K-12 space made the event a refreshing break from the wide-eyed optimism and business-mindedness of Silicon Valley problem-solving. 

 

"With some of the nation’s most innovative and vocal techie teachers and edu-tinkerers sharing out, much of the conference was devoted to developing the next generation of entrepreneurial minds. But more broadly, conference leaders raised pointed questions about entrepreneurship’s role within education. In particular, many seemed to be wondering: how does education develop "agile" mindsets amongst administrators, teachers, parents, and students in an ever-changing political, socioeconomic, and technological landscape?"

A well-crafted summary of EduCon 2.5, especially its appreciation of the dedication and thoughtfulness or organizers, presenters, and attendees.
