Peter Vogel44,233Sharing a circle of terrific ICT educatorsHere in British Columbia we are about to head back to school. What better time to share this circle of people who share their expertise in Information and Communications Technology or Educational Technology if you prefer another label.I've been a Google+ user since day 1 and in fact I began using it, appropriately enough, while on a three-week stay at the birthplace of the World Wide Web, CERN, perhaps better known as the home of the Large Hadron Collider. I began building this circle of plussers while there. Now I must admit I haven't been good about culling dormant accounts of late so don't expect everyone in the circle to be a gem.Also, if you happen across this post and circle and wish to be included (on the basis outlined above) just send me a note.  2014-08-29 22:11:48451101

A review of Buster Benson's book, "Antifragile."  +Shane Parrish (Farnam Street) is becoming one of my favorite sites.  "An antifragile way of life is all about finding a way to gain from the inevitable disorder of life. To not only bounce back when things don’t go as planned, but to get stronger, smarter, and better at continuing as a result of running into this disorder."

I've been saving this article, written by Tony Bates and asking for commentary and input as he writes his book.  It's an interesting evaluation of Wenger's "Communities of Practice" seminal work which has evolved.  Initially I considered his concept dated, as a CoP seemed to refer to work groups, groups we were with because we had to be, and how we learned with them because we had the common work denominator.  That didn't make sense in relation to PLNs, where the groups we have are far more networked and overlap in such interesting ways.  I like Wenger's updated (2014) definition.  "Communities of practice are groups of people who share a common passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly."  +Kimberly Hayworth I know you had interest in this at one point, not sure if you saw Tony's article.

Degrees are required more often - not less - than in past years, according to IHE.   The consulting company cited in the article says something that seems to be true - ""This strongly suggests that, in such occupations, employers have come to rely on a bachelor's degree primarily as a way of screening applicants, in a way that may not be related to job duties themselves," Burning Glass says in its report."

"Critical pedagogy, for me, is not about knowing how to do everything right, or getting it right the first time, or every time.

One of my favorite adult learning theories, Double-Loop Learning, coined by Chris Argyris, is in an article on +TeachThought .  Always interesting that theories traditionally put in the "adult" silo are more and more often applicable to any stage of learning.  Perhaps it is only the third loop, not referred to here, that is meant for adults?  Learning meant for adults and for K12 students (traditional) is getting less and less differentiated.
Loops in Triple-Loop Learning 
1 - Are we doing things right?
2 - Are we doing the right things? 
3 - How do we decide what is right?

"Students over age 35, who accounted for 17 percent of all college and graduate students in 2009, are expected to comprise 19 percent of that total by 2020."

I remember sharing a study a few months ago that proved retention was better when notes were taken by hand.  I agree with this article, which has a different POV.  "I think the results point in a different direction, suggesting that students do not need to be restricted from using laptops — or any other learning tool — in the classroom. Rather, the research underscores the need digital literacy instruction; that is, how to use their tools in a way that serves their learning goals."

Yet another oh so accurate post from +Phil Hill 

New post at e-Literate

Despite the billions of dollars invested over the past several years, the vast majority of ed tech is used in only a small percentage of courses at most campuses.[3] Most ed tech applications or devices have failed to cross the barriers into mainstream adoption within an institution. This could be due to the technology not really addressing problems that faculty or students face, a lack of awareness and support for the technology, or even faculty or student resistance to the innovation. Whatever the barrier, the situation we see far too often is a breakdown in technology helping the majority of faculty or courses.___Yet another oh so accurate post from +Phil Hill

Interesting - that's a huge difference but not surprised.

"The average male scientist authors 45 percent more papers than the average female scientist"

An interesting analysis of 938,301 scientific papers from arxiv.org, by Emma Pierson: http://goo.gl/mweWgs

"When a female scientist writes a paper, she is more likely to be first author ["indicating the scientist primarily responsible for the paper"] than the average author on that paper. But she is less likely to be last author ["indicating the senior scientist who supervised the work"], writes far fewer papers and is especially unlikely to publish papers on her own. Because she writes fewer papers, she ends up more isolated in the network of scientists, with additional consequences for her career."

But the good news is women do seem to be gaining ground in academic publishing, and here's an interesting point I hadn't thought about before now: "the rise of big data has made it far easier to study gender inequality."___Interesting - that's a huge difference but not surprised.

Many experienced educators are racing to prepare for a new reality. Today’s students, with cell phones glued in hand and laptops never out of reach, show an increasing interest in online courses. In 2013, about 46% of all college students were enrolled in at least one online course — quite a jump from 20% in 2008.

Students like online classrooms and degree programs for their flexibility, ease of access and affordability, and teaching no longer is limited to face-to-face experiences. For a growing number of learners, it’s keyboard-to-keyboard, screen-to-screen and webcam-to-webcam. As a response to this shift, many educators are seeking training for online teaching.

The notion of private is also a social convention, but privacy isn’t a state of a particular set of data. It’s a practice and a process, an idealized state of being, to be actively negotiated in an effort to have agency. Once we realize this, we can reimagine how to negotiate privacy in a networked world."  +Stephen diFilipo you will like this!

CBE sounds ideal, but the mechanics of implementation are a reality.  This article is a reminder of how many things need to change in order to properly execute.  Schools that start with CBE (such as SNHU's College for America) may not have some of these problems, but adapting to a new environment has many moving parts.

Pull quotes:
"Unfortunately, Silicon Valley’s efforts here have mostly centered around changing the credentials themselves rather than reducing demand for them in the first place. And that is the serious conundrum facing entrepreneurs hoping to build a more meritocratic and open labor market."
"Silicon Valley has a complicated relationship with credentialing, often arguing for the democratic elitism of “meritocracy,” emphasizing proven results and one’s actual ability to build products. In reality, it still clings to the same credentialing system used by the rest of the economy, where brand names, particularly those in education, have disproportionate power in the labor market."
