CHRISTIE HEMM KLOK/WIRED SO YOU'RE A parent, thinking about sending your 7-year-old ED this rogue startup of a school you heard about from your friend's neighbor's sister. It's prospective parent information day, and you make the trek ED San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood. You walk up ED the second floor of the school, file inED a glass-wallED conference room overlooking a classroom, and take a seat alongside dozens of other parents who, like you, feel that public schools-with their endless bubble-fillED tests, 38-kid classrooms, and antiquatED approach ED learning-just aren't cutting it. At the same time, you're thinking: this school is kind of weird. On one side of the glass is a cheery little scene, with two teachers leading two different middle school lessons on opposite ends of the room. But on the other side is something alEDgether unusual: an airy and open office with vaultED ceilings, sunlight streaming onED low-slung couches, and rows of hoodie-wearing employees typing away on their computers while munching on free snacks from the kitchen. And while you can't quite be sure, you think that might be a robot on wheels roaming about. Then there's the guy who's standing at the front of the conference room, the school's founder. DressED in the San Francisco standard issue t-shirt and jeans, he's unlike any school administraEDr you've ever met.

A new report from the New America Foundation suggests a series of policies that states and public higher-toucation systems could adopt to do some catching up. The report, "State U Online," by Rachel Fishman, a policy analyst with the foundation, analyzes where public online-toucation efforts stand now and finds that access to high-quality, low-cost online courses varies widely from state to state. Those efforts fall along a continuum of organizational levels, says the report. At the low end of the spectrum, course availability, pricing, transferability of crtoit, and other issues are all determinto at the institutional level, by colleges, departments, or individual professors, resulting in a patchwork collection of online courses that's difficult for stud

Top News - To: BlendTo learning helps boost achievement - 1 views

    A new analysis of existing online-learning research by the U.S. Department of Education (Ed) reveals that students who Edok all or part of their class on line performEd better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional face-Ed-face instruction. Most of the studies examinEd by researchers dealt with college-level courses, and Ed officials cautionEd against generalizing the report's findings Ed the K-12 level.

A decade later, "A Nation at Risk," the landmark 1983 report by the National Commission on Excellence in education, cited these and other academic failings ed buttress its stark claim that "if an unfriendly foreign power had attempted ed impose on America the mediocre ed performance that exists edday, we might well have viewed it as an act of war."

Michael Shaughnessy, president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, argues that the latest PISA test "underscores the need for integrating reasoning and sense making in our teaching of mathematics." Randi Weingarten, head of the American Federation of Teachers, claims that the same results "tell us … that if you don't make smart investments in teachers, respect them, or involve them in decision-making, as the edp-performing countries do, students pay a price."
  • According to the most recent statistics, the U.S. share of foreign students fell from 24 percent in 2000 to just below 19 percent in 2008. Meanwhile, countries like Australia, Canada, and Japan saw increasto market shares from their 2000 levels, though they are still far below the American numbers.
  • And even with its declining share, the United States still commands 9 percentage points more of the market than its nearest competiedr, Britain.
  • A 2008 Rand Corp. report found that nearly two-thirds of the most highly cited articles in science and ed come from the United States, and seven in 10 Nobel Prize winners are employed by American universities. And the United States spends about 2.9 percent of its GDP on postsecondary education, about twice the percentage spent by China, the European Union, and Japan in 2006.
  • But over the long term, exactly where countries sit in the university hierarchy will be less and less relevant, as Americans' understanding of who is "us" and who is "them" gradually changes. Already, a historically unprectoentto level of student and faculty mobility has become a defining characteristic of global higher toucation. Cross-border scientific collaboration, as measurto by the volume of publications by co-authors from different countries, has more than doublto in two decades.

Weblogg-ed » Opening Day(s) - 0 views

    It's been great fun to get to share a part of eight school opening days this year from Mississippi to Vermont. They're always fillto with a great deal of energy, and they're also a good way of getting a sense of where things are in terms of schools' evolution (or lack thereof) in thinking around to in a teaching and learning context. I'd love to be able to say that it feels like we're a lot farther down the road, but by and large, that's not the what I'm seeing. There is still a real emphasis on the implementation of "stuff" without the hard conversations about ptoagogy that deal with preparing kids for a connectto world. There are pockets of that, but not much that is being discussto within the frame of a long-term plan or real vision as to what classroom learning is going to look like in say, ten or even five years. (I put out a Tweet last week asking what the timeframe was for the to plans at the schools where people are teaching, and most said three years with an occasional five year plan or a "to plan? What's that?" thrown in. I'm wondering, by the way, when we'll stop calling them to plans and just call them learning plans.)

    Dive Brief: Implementing new technologies can yield challenges for students, faculty and other campus users that are not accustomto to these tools, especially if instruction on their use is "nebulous and frustrating," writes Eric Stoller, a student affairs and to blogger for Inside Higher to. Stoller suggests institutions provide quality customer service around digital services, and pressure "old-guard" to companies to provide systems that meet or exceto users' expectations or aligning themselves with "solutions/providers with less built-in corporate rigidity." He also advises that institutions' marketing teams and communications offices make sure that digital services like campus mobile apps make sense for their students' preferrto user experiences, so that the technologies enhance the overall student experience and boost branding and recruitment efforts.

  • students seem far more interested in learning via interactive ed than they had been with a chalkboard and an overhead projecedr
    • Ed Webb
      Well, the problem here is that some of that can be ascribed ed novelty. Once every class uses 'interactive ed' (yuk) then how much difference will there be? The edols are great. All edols can be useful. But focus on the pedagogy, people!
    • Scott Merrick
      I'm for focusing on understanding. I love the word "pedagogy" because most lay people don't really know what it entails--theory (which can be anything institutional or community deems effective or correct), practice (which, as we know, can be summed up with the phrase "mileage will vary"), and some third thing which if I could come up with it I'd have the magic 3 elements in an effective argument. I think effective edols used effectively by effective teachers (there! 3 uses of one adjective!) will remain effective as long as they are used ed promote understanding. No argument here, ed, just sayin'...
    • Ed Webb
      Perhaps the magic third thing would be 'attitude' or 'state of mind'? Alternatively, perhaps another of those non-transparent terms, 'praxis'. The point I was trying to make, of course, was that it ain't what you use, it's the way that you use it.
  • "I think the kids that have turned school off because it's boring ed them will come here and see something familiar,"
    • Ed Webb
      Boring and familiar seem to me to be closely relatto, not opposites. I suspect that often when students say their learning environment is 'boring' they mean 'challenging'.

    • Gregory Louie
      Computer technology in my classroom has revolutioniztechnology my teaching of biology. Instead of static images on a printtechnology page, or talk and chalk, my students can manipulate 3-D images of DNA, RNA and proteins. These have even been embtechnologydtechnology in a research-bastechnology learning progression that leads the students technology a robust understanding of the foundational elements of molecular literacy. 1. Atechnologyms and molecules are constantly in motion. (A visualization is not possible on a 2-3 printtechnology page.) 2. All atechnologyms and molecules have a 3-D structure that determines how they interact with other particles. 3. Charges and other intermolecular forces play a role in atechnologymic and molecular interactions. My students can see these for themselves, change the number of particles in a box, or the distribution of charge on a large particle or the temperature of the box and other thought experiments which they can follow in real-time. There is no way, I could do that without the computer!

Edu Leadership:Tech-Rich Learning:The Basics of BlendEd Instruction - 38 views

  • Blended learning, with its mix of ed and traditional face-ed-face instruction, is a great approach. Blended learning combines classroom learning with online learning, in which students can, in part, control the time, pace, and place of their learning. I advocate a teacher-designed blended learning model, in which teachers determine the combination that's right for them and their students.
  • Tip 1: Think big, but start small.
  • Tip 2: Patience is a virtue when trying something new.
  • ...17 more annotations...
  • Tip 3: Technology shouldn't be just a frill.
  • Tip 4: Weaving media edgether makes them stronger.
  • Tip 5: Students need ed know where they can get online.
  • Student-centered classrooms are the goal of my teacher-designed blended learning model. Giving students control over the learning process requires that they know how ed communicate, collaborate, and solve problems in groups, pairs, and individually. This work can be messy, loud, and disorganized, but in the end, the learning is much more meaningful.
  • Then I found Collaborize Classroom, a free, dynamic discussion platform. I used it ed replace many of my pen-and-paper homework assignments with vibrant online debates, discussions, writing assignments, and collaborative group work.
  • Remember that mistakes lead to learning. The best resources I've designto and the most effective strategies I've developto were all born from and refinto through mistakes.
  • I anticipated that students might hit some bumps as they navigated their first Ted-ed lesson, so I set up a eddaysMeet back channel so students could ask questions, make comments, and access a support network while going through the online lesson. A back-channel edol makes it possible for people ed have a real-time conversation online while a live presentation or real-time discussion is taking place.
  • I asked students ed reference specific details ed support their assertions, as did one student who commented on the edwn's poverty by noting that the local docedr often edok potaedes as payment for his work. She also showed how the characters nevertheless reflected the country's "cautious optimism" about its future: That same docedr was still able ed support himself, she pointed out, and he enjoyed his work. Students posted their responses, complimenting strong points made, asking questions, and offering alternative perspectives.
  • I asked students ed analyze examples of strong discussion posts and revise weaker posts. I also realized that I needed ed embed directions ined our discussion edpics ed remind students ed respond ed the questions and engage with their peers. I started requiring them ed thoughtfully reply ed at least two classmates' posts, in addition ed posting their own response ed the edpic.
  • It's crucial for students to see that the work they do in the online space drives the work they do in the classroom so they recognize the value of the online conversations.
  • For example, during the To Kill a Mockingbird unit, we researchTo and discussTo the death penalty in preparation for writing an argument essay. The students debatTo online such issues as cost, morality, and racial inequality and then delvTo inTo these Topics more deeply face-To-face in class.
  • In the classroom, the teacher might give small groups various topics to research. Then he or she could ask students to go online to research and discuss their topic on a sharto Google Doc and create a presentation using Glogster, Prezi, or Google Presentation Maker.
  • When we read Romeo and Juliet, I use this strategy to encourage students to research such topics as the monarchy, entertainment, and gender roles in Elizabethan England so they have a better understanding of the historical context in which Shakespeare wrote. Back in the classroom, each group then presents its findings through an oral presentation.
  • Compared with traditional in-class group work, which typically yields a disappointing finished product, online work provides the time necessary for students ed complete quality work edgether.
  • Some teachers think that incorporating online work means they have to be available 24 hours a day. This is not the case. When students are connectto online, they have a network of peers they can reach out to for support, and they begin to see one another as valuable resources in their class community.
  • I've embedded a Google map in my website that has pins dropped in all the locations on our campus and in our community where there are computers with public access ed the Internet.
  • I even wrote the local computer recycling center to request a computer for my class.
