I wonder how this could be used in corporate. The model works well with Coursera. This is a way to get work products to assess skills without the teacher doing all the grading. I found I learned just as much, if not more, when I did my peer reviews.

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
One potential culprit captured by the study: Faculty may lack the training necessary to take advantage of smaller class sizes, open classroom layouts and other strategies meant to reduce the reliance on conventional lecturing. Lectures did occur less often in smaller than larger classes, the study found, and open layouts did correlate with more student-centered learning. But about half of the courses with those advantages still featured more conventional lecturing than interactive or student-centered teaching styles.

Bill Gates: Why I want to stop talking about the “developing” world

Bill Gates: Why I want to stop talking about the “developing” world | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
My late friend Hans Rosling called the labels “outdated” and “meaningless.” Any categorization that lumps together China and the Democratic Republic of Congo is too broad to be useful. But I’ve continued to use “developed” and “developing” in public (and on this blog) because there wasn’t a more accurate, easily understandable alternative—until now.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Gates speaks of Hans Rosling's new book Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World—and Why Things Are Better Than You Think.  

 

I am saddened by the news that Han's Rosling died earlier this year. His fact based world view (brilliantly support by data visualizations) is one of the reasons I count myself a serial optimist.  This is a book that will shake you free of preconceptions and help you see the world in a new (and very hope filled) light.

5 levers that can unlock smarter demand for education technology

5 levers that can unlock smarter demand for education technology | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
When procurement decisions focus too heavily on inputs like enrolling students in online courses or filling tutoring time, it’s hardly surprising to find tools merely providing cheaper seat-time-based learning models. Pockets of the market, such as credit recovery, have largely fallen victim to this trend. Moreover, even if schools want to focus on learning outcomes, they may be purchasing tools blindly when little to no efficacy data exists to inform their decisions.

Here’s a slightly Orwellian way to check whether your students may have plagiarized part of their essays: the Chrome extension Draftback, which plays back the revision history of any Google doc you can edit—down to the keystroke.

That was just one of the many extensions, add-ons and hacks for the Google ecosystem shared at a pair of sessions packed to the rafters at the Spring CUE 2018 conference in Palm Springs, Calif. The tools span everything from music to time-saving shortcuts and supports for struggling students or those with learning disabilities.

What is Design Thinking?

 

Design thinking is an empathy based, creative problem solving process embraced by innovators around the world for addressing complex problems. At its heart, it nurtures the ability to see a situation from someone else's point of view, engineer a solution, and then test and refine your solution based on feedback. It is one approach CSI students will use to master the California Common Core State Standards and build the adaptable thinking skills they will need for success in the 21st century workforce.
