Are we entering a new golden age of teaching and learning?
Reported by EdSurge, Matthew Rascoff from Duke University believes higher education has really turned the corner from early adoption with a lot of tech-driven pedagogical breakthroughs to the mainstream. That we know more about how students learn, and how we need to teach than ever before. For example, using the learnings from the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve, which shows that if you remind students of certain learnings after the class, it can help lock it in. So Duke uses open-source technology they’ve created to text students questions about the learning after class, which has increased their academic performance by several percentage points alone.
The takeaway? Higher ed is better than ever, and we have a storytelling problem ahead of us – telling this dynamic story of learning innovation to an increasingly discerning student.
