Online student success is more than the sum of its parts | Ed Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it

"Prior to the last recession in 2007, four out of five jobs lost were considered “low skills” - requiring a high school degree or less, but the employment landscape is dramatically changing. (Source) By 2020, it’s estimated that 65% of jobs will require a postsecondary degree."

Komal Patel's curator insight, August 17, 2016 2:21 PM

The article mentions how by 2020 65% of jobs will require a postsecondary degree, I worked in the staffing industry for 6 months, and already it is amazing how people working 20+ years in, say, C+ programming, are being disqualified for a new job because they never completed a bachelors degree when they were younger. It is as though a bachelors is the new high school diploma, and unquestioned necessity for jobs.

Ignoring social media is like ignoring email in 1994. It is defining how a new generation connects with each other, for whom email – as we grew up with it – doesn’t even exist.

Education Technology: Apps in the Middle School Classroom

Education Technology: Apps in the Middle School Classroom | Ed Tech for Teachers | Scoop.it

Karin has three kids, two in middle school. Like most people who live with or teach kids this age, she knows that what’s in now will be passé in a day, and that few kids want to admit that school can be cool. So when her daughter came home from a friend’s house chattering about life in Jamestown in colonial days, Karin was eager to know what sparked this enthusiasm. Perhaps she should have guessed: It was an iPad app. Karin looked up the Early Jamestown history app in the App Store (it’s free), and she found other interactive history apps there as well. Maybe one of them will also interest her kids."
