Changes in Education are coming in part due to two things - 'unpreceidented technolgical infrastructure and new imperical evidence about learning'.  Support interest driven learning - Become the Academic Coach!  Great way to look at peices that we can change in the system to spark kids interests.

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds | Education and Digital Technology | Scoop.it

Researchers found similar effects on student learning and teacher behavior regardless of whether teachers took part in online or face-to-face professional development.

 

Fishman said that administrators and policymakers should see the findings as further evidence that online teacher professional development, while no silver bullet, can be a viable alternative to the traditional model.

 

"There's some hesitation on the part of teachers who think that online [professional development] is somehow less valuable to them because of a lack of personal connection," Fishman said.

 

"I think this study may make them a little more optimistic."

Teachers are really ready for this.   Receiving some of your PD via online means is less expensive and equalizes the participants.  For many teachers this what they have been waiting for.  I say let's grab a 'holt' of this and go.

How your webcam can spy on you

How your webcam can spy on you | Education and Digital Technology | Scoop.it

Once installed, the “remote administration tool” (RAT) software allows hackers to take control of the machine at any time – similar to how IT workers fix office computers remotely.

 

Hackers can then use a victim’s home computers as if sitting at it – doing everything from switching on the webcam to looking through personal files on the hard drive.

 

Mr Neate said: “The most at-risk computers are those running older software, and those without up-to-date anti-virus software installed.”

timokos's curator insight, June 23, 2013 3:03 AM

Great peace on new types of learners, such as leasure or drive-by learners and antagonistic learners, and the need to develop new quality measures for MOOCs

 

"One last plea – MOOCs are still a new kid on the block. Let them make mistakes, let them be experimental, let people play and explore in this space without tying it down with the types of quality overhead we already have in formal education."

Abi James's curator insight, June 26, 2013 3:57 AM

"higher education filters on the way in, whereas MOOCs filter on the way out. The quality measures are therefore very different. Interesting discussion on how to assessthe quality of MOOCs and the motivation of MOOC users. However, one group of learners is not considered - those who may not be able ot access traditional higher education - due to a range of barriers (financial, physical etc). MOOCs havev the potential to remove those barriers.
