Half an Hour: The Great Rebranding

Half an Hour: The Great Rebranding | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

I was at the same conference of course and viewed it a bit differently. The attendees are self-selected from an audience consisting almost entirely of instructors (people outside this community were prohibited from attending). The presentations and discussion seemed to me to be repeated instances of "please please please let MOOCs be whatever they are so long as they don't touch the sacred role of instruction."

 Am I a  life-long learner! What does it take to continue learning? Where is our culture going regarding learning?

Jason R Levine's curator insight, May 11, 2013 9:07 PM

"MOOCs were not designed to serve the missions of the elite colleges and universities. They were designed to undermine them, and make those missions obsolete. Yes there has been a great rebranding and co-option of the concept of the MOOC over the last couple of years. The near-instant response from the elites, almost unprecedented in my experience, is a recognition of the deeply subversive intent and design of the original MOOCs (which they would like very much to erase from history)."

4 Ideas For Motivating Adolescent Male Readers ~ teachthought

4 Ideas For Motivating Adolescent Male Readers ~ teachthought | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

by Kenny Mckee

 

"It’s no secret that state and national assessments continue to indicate that boys lag behind girls in the area of reading.

"The gap tends to grow larger as students enter adolescence. It’s also no secret that many teenage boys dislike reading — in class or at home. Just ask a high school teacher…or a teenage boy. While it’s not true that all teenage boys dislike reading, there is a growing trend of many becoming unmotivated readers. Obviously, students who are resistant to reading are unlikely to get better at it. Here are four ideas for motivating adolescent male readers."
