  •  
    "The National Academy of Education (NAEd) released a new report on Big Data in Education: Balancing the Benefits of Educational Research and Student Privacy. The report addresses a fundamental tension of how to reap the educational benefits that access to comprehensive "big" data provides while ensuring student privacy."

3 'Knowns' in Learning Science-and How to Apply Them in Practice | EdSurge News - 1 views

  •  
    "The key to unlocking a brighter future for students lies within the understanding and application of learning science. As a data scientist and edtech developer, I believe our job is not about inventing the next shiny digital device; it's about improving education outcomes for students, and doing so demonstrably and empirically with research. And the starting point for that is looking at what we already know from the science of learning."

The myth that "students are comfortable with technology" is prevalent and pro... - 0 views

  •  
    "students have to (first) be comfortable with the technology, (second) they have to understand the educational use of the technology, and (third) they have to adjust to new instructional methods that use technology. Expecting that they will quickly and easily make the transition to blended learning is a recipe for failure."

What Is Learning? 12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education | HASTAC - 0 views

  •  
    "Here are a baker's dozen of the main principles of connected learning. As you will see, they form an "ecosystem," where each component influences and changes the others. These apply in any field (although differently in each field). These principles draw from constructivist, engaged "public educators" (Stuart Hall's term)  going back as far as Lev Vygotsky and John Dewey and including Howard Gardner, Franz Fanon, Jacques Rancière, and digital pedagogy theorists including Yochai Benkler, Howard Rhinegold,  Mizuko Ito, and many others.  "

Fact or Fiction?: Video Games Are the Future of Education - 0 views

  •  
    "Video games are playing an increasing role in school curricula as teachers seek to deliver core lessons such as math and reading-not to mention new skills such as computer programming-in a format that holds their students' interests. Some herald this gamification of education as the way of the future and a tool that allows students to take a more active role in learning as they develop the technology skills they need to succeed throughout their academic and professional careers."

The Future of Learning: Compelling, Customized, Connected & Competency-Based - Getting ... - 1 views

  •  
    "There is an emerging opportunity to boost student achievement and improve working for teachers here in the U.S-and a huge opportunity to expand access to quality learning to every young person on earth. That's the most interesting and important thing anyone could work on. The opportunity is to make learning more compelling, customized, connected and competency-based."

Technology and jobs: Coming to an office near you - 0 views

  •  
    "The definition of "a state education" may also change. Far more money should be spent on pre-schooling, since the cognitive abilities and social skills that children learn in their first few years define much of their future potential. And adults will need continuous education. State education may well involve a year of study to be taken later in life, perhaps in stages."

Classes should do hands-on exercises before reading and video, Stanford researchers say - 1 views

  •  
    "A new study from the Stanford Graduate School of Education flips upside down the notion that students learn best by first independently reading texts or watching online videos before coming to class to engage in hands-on projects. Studying a particular lesson, the Stanford researchers showed that when the order was reversed, students' performances improved substantially."

    "The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner. "

Grouping Students by Ability Regains Favor With Educators - 0 views

  •  
    Now ability grouping has re-emerged in classrooms all over the country - a trend that has surprised education experts who believed the outcry had all but ended its use. A new analysis from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a Census-like agency for school statistics, shows that of the fourth-grade teachers surveyed, 71 percent said they had grouped students by reading ability in 2009, up from 28 percent in 1998. In math, 61 percent of fourth-grade teachers reported ability grouping in 2011, up from 40 percent in 1996. "These practices were essentially stigmatized,"

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - 0 views

  •  
    The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the "classic" approach to "good learning" than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.

Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom - 1 views

  •  
    "Almost 25 years have passed since Chickering and Gamson offered seven principles for good instructional practices in undergraduate education. While the state of undergraduate education has evolved to some degree over that time, I think the seven principles still have a place in today's collegiate classroom. Originally written to communicate best practices for face-to-face instruction, the principles translate well to the online classroom and can help to provide guidance for those of us designing courses to be taught online."

Error Terror: The Value of Thinking and Acting Like a Child - 0 views

  •  
    ""Error marks the place where education begins," Mike Rose posits as one of the central themes of his book Lives on the Boundary. Error is a signal of stepping outside the confines of our comfortable knowledge base, of taking that risk and transcending what we already know; yet it is precisely error that is punished. If trial repeatedly ends up as punished error, the fear of error may hinder the curiosity proclivity of young children who then develop "error terror.""

What's Missing From These Quotes? QR Codes Hide the Answers! - 0 views

  •  
    "I made a series of posters that I often hang around the room when I facilitate workshops. It's fun for participants to get up and scan them at break time. Each poster features a quote about education or technology. Part of the quote or its author is missing and has been replaced with a QR code."

An Education Revolution: Automate and Humanize! - 0 views

  •  
    Anyone who has ever tried to teach a kid how to multiply knows how hard that job is. (Try teaching a child what an adverb is long enough and you'll develop a facial tic.) But set the student up with an interactive, electronic game that is fun, competitive, and self-diagnostic, and suddenly teaching these basic subjects becomes both efficient and effective. Does that make teachers obsolete? Quite the opposite: it frees them to teach the higher levels of the cognitive domain-analysis, problem solving, synthesis, and creative thinking. The parts teachers normally never get around to because they're too bogged down in the basics.
