Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, February 11, 2014 10:47 AM

"If You Build It" film follows designer activists, Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie County, the poorest in NC, where they work with local high school students to help transform both their community and their lives. Pilloton and Miller lead their students through a year-long design and build project that does more than just teach basic construction skills. It shows 10 teenagers the power of design-thinking to re-invent not just their town but their own sense of what's possible.

Why massive open online courses (still) matter

2013 was a year of hype for MOOCs (massive open online courses). Great big numbers and great big hopes were followed by some disappointing first results. But the head of edX, Anant Agarwal, makes the case that MOOCs still matter -- as a way to share high-level learning widely and supplement (but perhaps not replace) traditional classrooms. Agarwal shares his vision of blended learning, where teachers create the ideal learning experience for 21st century students.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, September 17, 2013 3:35 PM
A Personalized Learning System is a culture shift and a change in process that impacts the entire school community. Moving to learner-centered environments is more than just handing over the keys to the learner so they drive their own learning right away. This process is about developing a self-sustaining Personalized Learning System with your staff. This is about building a human infrastructure based on a train-the-trainer model where lead coaches support site coaches who support your teachers. Teachers become partners in learning with their learners as learners take ownership of their learning. - See more at: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2013/09/personalized-learning-system.html#sthash.mk9RGeTD.dpuf
Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, September 18, 2013 8:18 AM

There isn't much text to accompany this graphic, but the graphic does a great job of helping us see the need for creating an ecosystem for personalization: it can't be achieved through a 1:1 relationship between a teacher and a student, let alone through a 1:25 relationship of a teacher in a class with 25 students. It requires a complete reconceptualization of roles and relationships.
