An interesting and relevant blog post from 2014 by Jackie Gerstein on her blog User Generated Education. Great infographic and slides to share the message of how to move from Education 1.0 to 3.0.

The Transform Our World series supports and celebrates educators who integrate real-world issues into their classroom practice and engage students in authentic problem solving through a global lens.
How can my students learn about the world by working to make it a better place?
Here are the challenges that face our faculty today:
- Students who have access to smartphones and high-speed Internet may be distracted by a bombardment of quick and often shallow information.
- Students who do not have access could fall behind through no fault of their ability to learn.
- Faculty expectations and practices are changing at many institutions because Web 2.0 learning technologies are continuously evolving.
Charles Sturt University in Australia - A set of common learning outcomes has been written to assist course teams with alignment between standards, course & subject outcomes, and assessment. These are called CSU's Graduate Learning Outcomes.

Education technology is riddled with temptations and false promises. But if you ask Mark Brown, a professor and director of the National Institute for Digital Learning at Dublin City University in Ireland, problems such as falling for hype around new technology is an absolute moral dilemma. He’s caved in before. “I have a personal confession,” Brown admitted in his keynote address at OLC Innovate happening this week in New Orleans. “I am a very big sinner.”
As Women’s History Month comes to a close, let’s turn our attention to 10 women scholars making their mark as champions of connected learning. (Connected learning calls for broadened access to learning that is socially embedded, interest-driven and oriented toward educational, economic or political opportunity. It is based on evidence that the most resilient, adaptive and effective learning involves individual interest as well as social support.) As connected learning advocates, these 10 scholars, among a number of others worldwide, argue that new media broadens access to opportunity and meaningful learning experiences that can happen anytime, anywhere. They are studying and finding ways to mobilize learning technologies in equitable, innovative and learner-centered ways.

Friedman identified a problem that education systems are only now beginning to wrestle with. Life is largely lived online, and schools do not prepare children for it.
It's not just about keeping them safe from predators, cyberbullies, porn and identity theft: it's also about having an ethical framework, and the skills to assess the reliability of information.
"Digital Intelligence (DQ) is the sum of social, emotional, and cognitive abilities essential to digital life. It is having the necessary knowledge, skills and ability to adapt one’s emotions and adjust one’s behaviour to deal with the challenges and demands of the digital era.
Beyond knowledge, these abilities must be rooted in human values of integrity, respect, empathy and prudence. These values enable the wise and responsible use of technology – an attribute which will mark the leaders of tomorrow."
Giant academic social networks have taken off to a degree that no one expected even a few years ago. A Nature survey explores why.

Digital learning environments are everywhere. Learning Management Systems (LMS) are used almost universally. People learn how to play the ukulele by watching YouTube videos. They learn how to grow organic veggies by joining Facebook groups. And they join a vast array of specialist communities that help them improve their skills, from knitting, to drawing, to managing their finances. All these technologies, resources, and platforms that people use to learn online, is what I call digital learning environments. What are some important issues that researchers and designers need to know about digital learning environments?
