A MOOC Delusion: Why Visions to Educate the World Are Absurd - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Tools for  learning | Scoop.it

As The Chronicle recently reported, perhaps the most prominent motivation among professors at prestigious universities for teaching massively open online courses, or MOOCs, is “altruism—a desire to increase access to higher education worldwide.”

Education is a personal mission. But there are touchstones: having a trusted source, being guided through material, being able to go at your own pace (or backtrack), having people you can ask questions of.

If we are going to teach the masses then fully online is disfunctional. A net-connected downloaded study guide is the way to go. Except that means giving away something (the download). Is Education Inc. ready for learning on the learner's terms?

Embedded Formative Assessment - It's All About the Learning

Embedded Formative Assessment - It's All About the Learning | Tools for  learning | Scoop.it

"Recently, I completed reading, Embedded Formative Assessment by Dylan Wiliam.  To say it is an important read would be an understatement. What I think I liked most about the book was that it is grounded in research and a true understanding of what is necessary to improve student achievement.  I think teachers will love that this book is filled with practical suggestions each teacher can make changes to their every day teaching practise to help involve students more in their own learning – helping students learn to think."
