Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 17, 12:35 AM
10 highlights capture the big picture themes of educational change that underpin the 18 topics:

1 Advancing progressive learning approaches requires cultural transformation.
2 Real-world skills are needed to bolster employability and workplace development.
3 Collaboration is key for scaling effective solutions.
4 Despite the proliferation of technology and online learning materials, access is still unequal.
5 Processes for assessing nuanced skills at a personal level are needed
6 Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology.
7 Online, mobile, and blended learning are foregone conclusions. 
8 Learning ecosystems must be agile enough to support the practices of the future.
9 Higher education is an incubator for developing more intuitive computers.
10 Lifelong learning is the lifeblood of higher education

I Learned Calculus With A Video Game, And It Was Surprisingly Fun

I Learned Calculus With A Video Game, And It Was Surprisingly Fun | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it
I, like many people, am terrible at math. I need a calculator to do basic addition and subtraction. Math class was excruciatingly painful for me, not to mention boring. But the open-world game Variant: Limits aims to make learning math, specifically calculus, fun.

Why Education is the hardest sector of the economy to automate 

Why Education is the hardest sector of the economy to automate  | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

We’ve all heard the warning cries: automation will disrupt entire industries and put millions of people out of jobs. In fact, up to 45 percent of existing jobs can be automated using current technology.

 

However, this may not necessarily apply to the education sector. After a detailed analysis of more than 2,000-plus work activities for more than 800 occupations, a report by McKinsey & Co states that of all the sectors examined, “…the technical feasibility of automation is lowest in education.”

 

There is no doubt that technological trends will have a powerful impact on global education, both by improving the overall learning experience and by increasing global access to education. Massive open online courses (MOOCs), chatbot tutors, and AI-powered lesson plans are just a few examples of the digital transformation in global education. But will robots and artificial intelligence ever fully replace teachers?

Empathy is not something that can be written up in a set of algorithms. I begin with that premise and it might be impossible to replace teachers with robots.

Has Blended Learning Reached the Tipping Point?

Has Blended Learning Reached the Tipping Point? | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

"Malcom Gladwell (2017) describes the tipping point as “that magic moment when an idea crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.” It is extremely challenging to predict when educational models are going to reach that so called tipping point. This is because educational systems are inherently complex with multiple factors that affect adoption."

Learn to Code in 3 Months with Harvard's Free Online Class

Learn to Code in 3 Months with Harvard's Free Online Class | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it
Harvard’s “Introduction to Computer Science” course is widely regarded as the best computer science course online and serves as a rigorous starting point for thousands of online students every year. Plus, the course is flexible: there’s an option for you whether you just want to look around, are dedicated to completing every assignment, or want to earn transferable college credit.

Here’s some straight talk: “Introduction to Computer Science” is hard.


It’s designed for students without previous computer programming experience, but it’s no walk in the park. If you enroll, you can expect to spend 10-20 hours on each of the nine project sets in addition to completing a complex final project. But, if you can dedicate the effort required, you’ll gain tangible skills, have a much more in-depth understanding of computer science and develop a better sense of whether or not this is a field you want to pursue.

NMC beyond the horizon: EdTech and the evolving roles of faculty

Advances in educational technology are altering delivery methods of course materials as well as student interactions with the content and their instructors. Adaptive technology platforms and advancements in online learning tools are disrupting traditional learning models, some faculty perceive the changes as a paradigm shift that diminishes their role in designing the learning experience. These tools are freeing up faculty to undertake deeper roles as mentors, guiding students through active learning exercises instead of dispensing information in lecture formats. Join us to hear from two presenters who are addressing the evolving roles of faculty and collaborate on devising strategies with your colleagues.
