5 Ed-Tech Ideas Face The Chronicle’s Version of ‘Shark Tank’

Wired Campus

Freedman: I love where you started with the criticism of the MOOCs. I mean, MOOCs aren’t learning platforms, they’re distribution platforms. Course might meet once a week for three hours, might meet once a week for an hour, maybe it meets every other week. So why not think of a better way to do it where if I’m doing case studies, I meet once a week for two hours? Distance Education IT MOOCs Teaching

Asynchronous Learning or Live Lessons? Which One Works Better for Me?

For example, most of the enrolled students in fully asynchronous MOOCs are adults, and even in this context, completion can be challenging. Choosing Wisely The ratio of synchronous and asynchronous activities, and the frequency of each, can be adjusted to meet the needs of your students.

Practical Applications to Individualize and Personalize Learning

A Principal's Reflections

There is no excuse not to secure funds to better meet the needs of all learners or those with specialized interests. One of the most cost-effective means to create a more personalized and individualized learning experience for students is through the use of OpenCourseWare (OCW) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC's). Possibly one of the most important shifts needed in schools is to provide individualized and personalized learning experiences to students.

Trends to watch in 2015: education and technology

Bryan Alexander

MOOCs? And the MOOC numbers look like they’re rising. Unless the worm turns globally, I’d expect planet MOOC to keep growing in 2016. Primary and secondary schools are a battleground between iPads and Chromebooks, it seems. One crucial impact of mobile technologies in education is the way they tear down our old boundary walls, the ones around in-session classes, or conferences, or meetings.

The Center has run a course for undergraduates since 2007 and has since expanded into secondary schools by hosting summer teacher-training workshops and making course materials available online through its Digital Resource Center.

The Role of Open Educational Resources (OER) in Making Education Available to All

A Principal's Reflections

OER ranges from highly structured college courses (MOOCs) to less structured curricula from colleges and other institutes of learning (OpenCourseWare a/k/a OCW), to free online textbooks, and everything in between. Use our model to bring OCW to your students; collaborate with us to refine it; adapt the materials to meet the needs of your students. It is gratifying that MIT is willing and able to meet needs like these.

The Inspiration in Front of Your Eyes

The Principal of Change

The notion of “Genius Hour,” which is an idea that has spread throughout schools all over the world, came about because educators noticed what was going on outside of schools and modified those ideas to meet their students’ needs. Everything else is secondary. A lot of times when working with educators, I try to give relevant examples of ideas that can be implemented into learning but get very specific to either a class or grade level.

Storms over liberal education: notes on the 2016 AAC&U conference

Bryan Alexander

I hoped to move on from there to what I called “approaches”, ways of using tech that didn’t depend on a specific platform – i.e., gaming and gamification, blended learning, distance learning, MOOCs, mobile, and digital literacy. Discussion went in some interesting angles, such as secondary education. One person thought shifting tertiary school content down to secondary could help reduce adjunctification, by (I think) reducing teaching hours in colleges.
