    "Policy makers and researchers have long focused on trying to combat 'disengaged' behaviours, rather than on understanding and promoting engagement among students. This focus only captures part of the issue - engagement is a complex cognitive process, including a student's psychological investment in their own learning and personal learning strategies.1 The internal nature of much engagement means that it is difficult to define and measure. As such, it has been hard for researchers and policy makers to determine which solutions can aid engagement and the impact student engagement can have on learning outcomes."

  •  
    "The use of the internet by younger children, from 0 to 8 years, may have both benefits and risks. Research into how the Internet is used by young children and the effects on children's development is relatively uncommon compared to research about older learners.

Alecia Simmonds | Why Australia hates thinkers - 2 views

  • Perhaps there's a link between the myth of Australian egalitarianism and anti-intellectualism.
  • Academics are often timorous folk who specialise in showing the complexity of issues, not offering tweet-sized solutions. Social media doesn't democratise debate. It limits it to the resilient. Snark triumphs over insight, and commentary is reserved for those with voluminous folds of scar-tissue. Sensitive thinkers rarely fit this bill.
  •  
    "There's no doubt that Australia is a vast, sunny, intellectual gulag. The question is why. It's certainly not for want of thinkers. We're home to some brilliant minds"

  •  
    Article from TheGuardian " Students use Wikipedia extensively, probably more than any other social group. Although the website's founder Jimmy Wales once warned readers not to use the website for academic purposes, American research shows that the majority of students browse its pages when researching essays. Most universities and academics distrust the service, warning us: "Never cite Wikipedia." Why is the academic world so hostile to this vast information resource? And why do students find it so hard to stay away?"
