Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 17, 2017 5:35 AM
10 highlights capture the big picture themes of educational change that underpin the 18 topics:

1 Advancing progressive learning approaches requires cultural transformation.
2 Real-world skills are needed to bolster employability and workplace development.
3 Collaboration is key for scaling effective solutions.
4 Despite the proliferation of technology and online learning materials, access is still unequal.
5 Processes for assessing nuanced skills at a personal level are needed
6 Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology.
7 Online, mobile, and blended learning are foregone conclusions. 
8 Learning ecosystems must be agile enough to support the practices of the future.
9 Higher education is an incubator for developing more intuitive computers.
10 Lifelong learning is the lifeblood of higher education

It is a public school with no classrooms, school bells, year levels or exams — as we know them.

Opening next week in Sydney, Lindfield Learning Village promises to break the mould and "change the measures of success", according to its principal.

"The education system we currently have in place was developed over 100 years ago to produce factory workers, and obviously that's not what we need to be producing in this era," said principal Stephanie McConnell, one of the architects of the new education model.

Ms McConnell gave 7.30 an exclusive first look inside the new school, which will open its doors to students from kindergarten to year 10 next week. Eventually it will host students up to year 12.

The Secret to Student Success? Teach Them How to Learn. | EdSurge News | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it
I’ve often heard students tell me they studied for hours on a test only to fail. Why? It is not unusual for some students to review what they already know and skip more difficult tasks. Yet evidence exists that providing timely, effective feedback is particularly beneficial for struggling learners. It is this feedback that allows students to differentiate what they know from what they don’t—metacognition.

[Podcast] Disrupting Education, for the Augmented Age

[Podcast] Disrupting Education, for the Augmented Age | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

At a time when AI and machine learning stand poised to replace many rote human tasks, are schools and colleges preparing the workers of tomorrow? And are business leaders creating the enterprise cultures that will support continuous learning in a climate of constant disruption?

In this podcast, Heather McGowan, a thought leader at the intersection of education, business, and technology, chats with Connected Futures executive editor Kevin Delaney. About how the very foundations of learning need to be disrupted, for what she calls the Augmented Age – a time when human ingenuity, creativity and empathy will separate us from the machines.

Invisible learning: The (r)evolution outside of the classroom - Education Futures | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it
Learning becomes invisible when we empower each of us to learn our own way. Removing structures of control opens possibilities. The end outcomes or goals of an experience are neither dictated nor determined from the start, but instead emerge as learning develops. Such experiences include free play, self-organized learning communities, authentic problem-based learning, and experimentation to acquire new knowledge.

Integrating MOOCs in traditionally taught courses: achieving learning outcomes with blended learning 

Integrating MOOCs in traditionally taught courses: achieving learning outcomes with blended learning  | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

"It has been several years since Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) have entered the higher education environment and many forms have emerged from this new way of acquiring knowledge. Teachers have been incorporating MOOCs with more or less success in a traditional classroom setting to support various learning preferences, introduce this new way of learning to students, and to make learning available to those who might not be able to follow traditional instructions. This paper researches a blended learning model where a MOOC has been integrated in a traditional classroom."
