Integration of MOOCs into high school advanced placement courses?  Hmmm, on one hand it is definitely an exciting development for driving student achievement and on the other making them a requirement may be dubious.  Gauging the difficulty and organization of materials will be of the utmost importance.  Some MOOC providers have started to do this with ratings such as introductory and scholar.

Moocs promote independent learning.  Anything that helps high school students develop their curiosity while introducing them to ways to independently learn is a good thing in my book.

No surprises in this list. I have seen lists like this for around 20 years and while some items are newer, professional learning has always been high on the list. I see the issues as deeper seated, relating more to a cultural and societal view of what school is about and the systems technologies in place to suppport that cultural view. Cultural change takes quite some time and is hard work. That is after the recognition that cultural change is required. Many have not got that far yet.
