La vida te da sorpresas la escuela no.

La vida te da sorpresas la escuela no. | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
La escuela, no. La escuela nos da monotonías, previsibilidades, controles y cerrazones como si fueran un valor. Pero no lo son. La escuela se precia de lo que no vale.

Maite SF's curator insight, August 9, 2013 8:10 AM

La vida te da sorpresas porque así es la vida. Y la escuela, que dice que educa para la vida (y lo diga o no, es para lo que debe educar), se aterra con ellas. Es verdad que las sorpresas inquietan, cómo no; como movilizan, hinchan las venas, dan adrenalina, excitan, dan ganas, fuerzan, jalan, exigen y nos impulsan. ¿Cómo, si no? La escuela, no

Northern Arizona University's new competency-based degrees and transcripts | Inside Higher Ed

Northern Arizona University's new competency-based degrees and transcripts | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Students who enroll in a new competency-based program at Northern Arizona University will earn a second transcript, which will describe their proficiency in the online bachelor degree’s required concepts. The university will also teach students how to share their “competency report” transcripts with potential employers.

The university shared a sample version of a competency report. The document looks nothing like its traditional counterpart, and lacks courses or grades.

The Unexpected Resistance to MOOCs

The Unexpected Resistance to MOOCs | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

A year and a half ago, MOOCs blitzed onto the scene with splashy momentum, gathering students, partner schools, millions of dollars in grant money, and outbursts of high-minded enthusiasm in an instant. But its speed outpaced its depth: the "campus tsunami" has turned out to be a much smaller undulation. It's possible that academia's tectonic plates are still creaking, and that the earthquake is yet to come, but so far, higher-ed is surfing the MOOC wave just fine.
