Informe de Evento: Flip Con 2014
Prof. Ken Bauer
  • La aplicación de Flipped Learning en las clases permite tener más tiempo para llegar a conocer a los estudiantes y saber los temas en los que tienen mayores problemas o dificultades.

The globetrotting classroom: Minerva Schools aims to address shortcomings of MOOCs
Smart Planet
  • While massive open online courses get a lot of attention, the San Francisco-based organization has received $25 million to test an ambitious blended approach to undergraduate programs.
  • Minerva founder Ben Nelson says, "We had the luxury to decide what medium to use -- a traditional classroom, an online classroom, or something we built on our own." Nelson's solution was Minerva's custom-designed online platform, which allows students to participate and debate instead of passively observe.
  • As a result, Nelson says, Minerva can attain its dual pedagogical goals: "curricular choice as well as individualized intellectual development," whereby professors can pass information to each other about individual students' progress and then modify the seminars accordingly.
  • At the same time, Minerva offers a blended learning atmosphere with its in-person interaction -- although this occurs exclusively among the students, while all the interaction with faculty remains online.

The History of "Personalization" and Teaching Machines
Hack Education
  • Who gets to define “personalization”? Who writes all these algorithms that will “personalize” our learning through technology. Who writes the curriculum? For whom is “personalization” defined (and by extension, for whom is “personalization” programmed)?
  • The "science" behind teaching machines (both the cognitive science and the computer science) might have changed over the course of the last few decades. But we still are faced with a powerful ideology that views students as objects to be manufactured by education - and thanks to "personalization" via teaching machines, at different and hopefully more efficient speeds.

MInd/Shift

Students Who Push Tech Boundaries Should Be Encouraged, Not Punished
Wired
  • Universities are not always the most welcoming places for student innovation, yet so many of the biggest tech success stories got their start on college campuses. 
  • As institutions that are home to cutting-edge developers of technology, universities have a responsibility to be more responsive to the needs of student innovators and researchers. It is time to get reform underway, fast.

Big Data Comes To College
NPR
  • When students use software as part of the learning process, whether in online or blended courses or doing their own research, they generate massive amounts of data.
  • Scholars are running large-scale experiments using this data to improve teaching; to help students stay motivated and succeed in college; and even to learn more about the brain and the process of learning itself.
  • So academics are scrambling to come up with rules and procedures for gathering and using student data—and manipulating student behavior.

  • But this simply won't happen, according to several robotics wonks and investors.
