A Periodic Table To Help You Choose The Best Type Of Visualization - Edudemic | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
People love visuals. Visuals have been shown to help us learn more quickly and to retain more information than text alone. We’re more easily able to understand the world around us when we have visual components to aid us. The same goes for the classroom. If you present your students with a block of text …

Almost no education research is replicated, new article shows @insidehighered

Almost no education research is replicated, new article shows @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The word “replication” has, of late, set many a psychologist’s teeth on edge. Experimental psychology is weathering acredibility crisis, with a flurry of fraud allegations and retracted papers. Marc Hauser, an evolutionary psychologist at Harvard University, left academe amid charges of scientific misconduct. Daniel Kahneman, a Nobel-Prize-winning psychologist at Princeton University, entered the fray in 2012 with a sharply worded email to his colleagues studying social priming. He warned of a “train wreck looming” that researchers would avoid only if they focused more diligently on replicating findings. And the journal Social Psychology devoted its most recent issue to replication – and failed to replicate a number of high-profile findings in social psychology.


Yet psychologists are not the worst offenders when it comes to replication, it turns out. That distinction might belong to education researchers, according to an article published today in the journal Educational Researcher.

Blackboard Launches Free App to Help Students Discover Career Paths | SYS-CON MEDIA

 Blackboard Inc. announced the release of Job Genie, a free mobile app designed to minimize student anxiety around the job selection process by helping them explore potential career paths and options for college. Job Genie is the latest innovation to come out ofBlackboard Labs, an initiative dedicated solely to education technology experimentation.

The app is a result of qualitative research with students that indicated a large amount of apprehension around key academic decisions, such as picking a school, major, or career path. Designed to be a non-threatening way to explore various education and job options, the app uses casual language and aesthetics to reinforce that these choices are part of a journey and that students should not feel locked into a single recommendation.

Will free online courses replace costly college degrees? | Capital Campus

Will free online courses replace costly college degrees? | Capital Campus | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

It is amazing the increasing number of students enrolling for free online university courses in Kenya. Just recently, I met a group of flamboyant students at Kenyatta University studying a course offered by Johns Hopkins University on coursera (Coursera is one of the biggest free online learning platforms). One of the students told me that it’s the easiest way of getting a certificate even if you are not onsite in the collage.


Distance education is not a new concept in this era, but it’s not easy to escape its influence around the world. Since the launching of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) in 2011 by two Silicon Valley start-ups to offer free online education, the traditional education structure has been turned on its head.


Soon after the launch of Coursera, over 160,000 students from every corner of the world signed up for the courses but only 23,000 got certificates of completion.


Thomas Friedman of the New York Times and many others have asked why one should pay thousands of dollars for degrees when they can earn the same from professors at Harvard and Oxford for free online.

Find the key to retaining knowledge. Lying in bed last night I started to think about my work and the launch of our new LMS  (Kinetic e-learn) and it made me wonder, how different my educational experience could have been through my school and university years if the teachers had taken a blended approach and incorporated e-learning into the lessons or lectures.

Why higher education cannot resist disruptive change

Why higher education cannot resist disruptive change | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In the digital age, higher education, willingly or unwillingly, will undergo disruptive change. Existing institutions can lead the change or become its victim. If higher education resists, new digital institutions will be established to meet the needs of the time.


This brings us to the future of higher education. Its situation is much the same as that of the news media. Content, often of high quality, can be produced by a multiplicity of knowledge organizations, including libraries, museums, software makers, think tanks, and media companies, among others. Talent (professors and other knowledge workers) are free agents. Distribution can be face to face, online, or a blended version of the two. Exhibition can occur on a campus owned by a college or on a digital device owned by the consumer.
