Just a couple of items from he last week or so that I thought were of interest:
Digital transformation in higher education. An interesting and easy to digest summary of some issues in the digital trends for higher education. Perhaps as you’d expect, this is very techno-centric rather than concerned with, for example, teaching and learning practices. Providing predictive learning analytics, student life-cycle CRM systems, or open education resources is useless without investing in changes to teaching practices, academic and academic-related staff development.
Delivery partners announced for government’s edtech demonstrator programme. I’m just noting this one to follow the implementation of the UK government’s EdTech strategy. What, if any, positive effects for pupils and school outcomes will be identified from this programme?
