5 Disruptive Education Trends That Address American Inequality | Co.Exist: World changing ideas and innovation


HI All! I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get anything new up – I hope people have actually been reading what I post, so I’m sorry if you have and I fell short. I think you might like this article – it’s really interesting. It addresses many of the new trends I have seen at various levels of education: software that learns learning styles, MOOCs, Flipped Classrooms, Gamification, and online (Free) tutors. I’m not totally sold on MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses) or learning software, but they are definitely on the horizon (and some of these are even mentioned in the Horizon Report – Gamification is given a “Time-to-adoption” of 2 – 3 years, and MOOCs are 1 year or less! I’m getting ready to take 2 myself, just to see how they work!

So – those of you who have been patiently waiting for me to show back up – what are your thoughts on this? Is it as exciting and scary as I think?? Will it help American Schools regain our standing in the world? Or at least keep us competitive?
