Dian J Harrison, MSW, MPA's curator insight, February 5, 2015 6:45 PM

Online graduate education appears to be growing in popularity.  In most cases, adults that are mid-career and have families to support, do not have the resources to take a leave from their jobs to go back to graduate school! Thus they have decided that an online program gives them the flexibility to get that degree while working!  This is just one of the incentives of online learning.

This year, the IBM researchers working on the “5 in 5” listing focus on the notion that in the future, everything will learn. According to IBM: “Driven by a new era of cognitive systems where machines will learn, reason, and engage with us in a more natural and personalized way. These innovations are beginning to emerge enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics, and learning technologies all coming together.” The number 1 item for 2014: The Classroom Will Learn You.

Using Content Curation Tools to Engage Students

Using Content Curation Tools to Engage Students | HigherEducationOutlook | Scoop.it
“ When I was in college (for 12 years I might add) there were really only three sources of information available to students: 1) Instructor 2) Textbook 3) Library. This was not such a distant past. A mere two decades ago I finished my undergrad, and I graduated with my PhD in 2001. I don’t think learning, or even how we learn, has changed all that much since then. But what has changed is access to information and how that access might actually distract from learning.”

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought | HigherEducationOutlook | Scoop.it
"Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond. Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to. But this is a strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."
