For the Future Student, Higher Education Will Be Redefined

For the Future Student, Higher Education Will Be Redefined | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
Not too far in the future, students may be faced with an entirely different set of choices than they do today. No longer might college or career straight after high school graduation be the two only and divergent paths in front of them. No longer may a four-to-six-year commitment to a highly esteemed institution be the fastest way to a fruitful career or a rich network.

With online education quickly gaining momentum, the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs) is not only shaking up higher education to the core — its value, its status, its cost — the movement is also changing how young people envision their education and their future.

elearn Magazine: In the Google Age, Information Literacy is Crucial | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
For serious academic inquiry, it's important that the information retrieved is the most accurate, highest quality, and as relatively up-to-date as possible. In order for students to develop good habits before they enter the workforce, it's vital to educate students early in their academic careers on how to determine what information is reliable and what is misleading when using search engines. Furthermore, we must take the additional step and educate students about alternative Web-based resources that are freely available to them on campus.

Alice.org - An Educational Software that teaches students computer programming in a 3D environment.

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.

 

"The best way to teach somebody something," Pausch explained, "is to have them think they're learning something else." With Alice, students concentrate on making movies and games, but they also are learning to program." - Randy Pausch http://www.cmu.edu/homepage/beyond/2008/summer/an-enduring-legacy.shtml

Annually, for more than 45 years, the city of Reynoldsburg, Ohio has celebrated the Tomato Festival-- a nod to its heritage as the birthplace of the commercial tomato. This middle-America town also boasts one other claim to fame: A so-called “traditional” LEA, namely Reynoldsburg City Schools (RCS), which is poised to be a breakout star among serious implementers of thoroughly re-engineered conceptions of learning and schooling.

Why Nate Silver Can Save Math Education in America

Why Nate Silver Can Save Math Education in America | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
Penguin/Ian Hill/Photostock By Nikhil Goyal Call it "The Triumph of Nerds." Poll statisticians have risen to rock star status.

Call it “The Triumph of Nerds.” Poll statisticians have risen to rock star status. One of the most famous is New York Times’ wunderkind Nate Silver — or as Jon Stewart put it, “Lord and god of the algorithm.” He may be best known for predicting the 44th president, but Silver could be the one man who can save mathematics education in America.

Silver, who first gained notoriety for forecasting the performance of Major League Baseball players and for correctly predicted the winner of 49 of 50 states in the 2008 election, can save the tattered reputation of math subjects.

WEAC's curator insight, August 7, 2015 9:55 AM

"Because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations. What is clear is that, as with advances throughout history, the technology that is available determines how our brains develops."

Larry Heuser's curator insight, August 8, 2015 3:27 PM

Using the Internet is like jet skiing.  Skimming along the surface of the water at high speed, exposed to a broad vista, surrounded by many distractions, and only able to focus fleetingly on any one thing.
