I dont think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity. Joi Ito @joi (2011) Image: CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 yobink

largest and most comprehensive metanalysis of undergraduate STEM education published to dateresults raise questions about the continued use of traditional lecturing as a control in research studies, and support active learning as the preferred, empirically validated teaching practice in regular classrooms. published May 2014 http://nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=131403&org=NSF&from=news
The higher education sector has reached a critical point where it must address the innovations that have changed the way its learners, and the rest of society, seek and engage with knowledge. http://www.nmc.org/publications

At its best openness is an ethos not a license. It's an approach to teaching and learning that builds a community of learners online and off. - Jim Groom
Social Media Tips #mscsm #icollab University of Salford
I learned a lot more about writing to the public. Before this I would have been less likely to express my views to a group of people online whereas now I would not have a problem in doing so. By posting publicly it opened up our world to other academics or people who are just interested in the topic... I dont think anyone would have thought that the author of one of the works we were researching would get involved. #studentvoices Openness...
I have learnt that social media / social networks are not just to be used as a distraction for not getting work done but can be used as an aid to get the work done. Social media / social networks can provide useful tools to help with academic learning. #studentvoices Social media...
Before studying it, I used Facebook and Twitter mainly just for keeping in contact with people, but since have discovered they both have much more to offer. They are places to discover new information and boost your knowledge. That both education and socialising can be rolled into one #studentvoices Social networks...
