Local Wisdom versus Global Assessments - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    A significant shift continues to occur within global education markets. It is signified by the manner in which it makes sense to speak of a global education market. It is driven by neo-liberalism and the expansion of markets into all aspects of our lives and it is made possible by manipulation of the third messaging system within the educational triad of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. It is a drive towards accountable, comparable and productive education systems fine-tuned to maximise the return on investment and provide industry with the workforce it desires. What must be asked is how does this trend impact students and are these the forces that should be driving change in our education systems?

Tech Digest : Real-time Twitter searches on Google results - 0 views

  • The Firefox add-on that brings Twitter results to your traditional search pages
  • Have a click on the image just here on the right and once it's bigged itself up, you'll notice it's a Google search page with five Twitter results at the top. That's because some clever soul over on MT-Hacks has created code for the Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox which offers a degree of real-time search on Google. Very neat indeed.
  • Head over to MT-Hacks to get the Twitter search add-on for your browser and see what you make of it.
