State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) Releases Report on States’ Uses of ARRA Funds for Technology and K-12 Reform

"ARRA Investments in Technology, Innovation, and K-12 Reform: The Digital Education Funding Cliff," a report released at the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) 2010 Leadership Summit and Education Forum earlier this month, illustrates that with appropriate funding and leadership, states and districts can make positive differences for students.


The report, which is the first and only of its kind, offers a preliminary snapshot of how states and school districts are using funds from the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) Program under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The result is an explosion of innovation with regard to digital and open content, online assessment, online and blended learning, increasing student and teacher access to a wide and growing array of computing devices — allowing for more choices and personalization — and even increased access to powerful data and information on student learning.

Coupled with the release of the National Education Technology Plan at the SETDA event by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan  and the release earlier this year of the FCC’s National Broadband Plan, which included within it an ambitious education agenda, the work states and districts are completing with the ARRA funding continues a strong momentum toward increasing education effectiveness and efficiency through technology.

Secretary Duncan speaking to SETDA ED Forum


About the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA).
Founded in 2001, SETDA is the national member association that represents the interests of the educational technology leadership of state and territorial education agencies in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
SETDA members work collectively and in public-private partnerships to ensure that meaningful technology innovations with broad potential for systemic improvements and cost-savings in teaching, learning and leadership are brought to scale.

Upcoming Training Magazine Network Free Webinars


I hope you take advantage of these opportunities to improve your webinar skills and knowledge.

Date: Tuesday, Dec 7, 2010
Time: 10:00AM Pacific / 1:00PM Eastern (60 Minute Session)

Blended learning has become an accepted practice in the learning space. Blended today means some combination of online learning, classroom experiences, and on-the-job mentoring. It's benefits and impacts are well-known and well-researched. But what if we're not really blending the right stuff? What if the gains we've seen to date are just the tip of the iceberg?

Today's blended learning is a cocktail of ice, water, and seltzer water - all variations on a theme, the theme of top-down learning. We're blending delivery models, but not the learning paradigm. The new blended learning mixes formal learning with collaborative and social learning, internal learning with training for the extended enterprise.

In this session, we'll discuss what the new blending looks like, how it differs from the old, and why you should consider adding it to your mix. We'll talk about when and how to blend social into your formal REGISTER

7 Things You Should Know About the HyFlex Course Model

Look at the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative, the "7 Things You Should Know about..." series.


7 Things You Should Know About the HyFlex Course Model

Abstract:
HyFlex is a course design model that presents the components of hybrid learning in a flexible course structure that gives students the option of attending sessions in the classroom, participating online, or doing both. Students can change their mode of attendance weekly or by topic, according to need or preference.
Models like HyFlex, which present multiple paths through course content, may work well for courses where students arrive with varying levels of expertise or background in the subject matter. Courses built on the HyFlex model help to break down the boundary between the virtual classroom and the physical one. By allowing students access to both platforms, the design encourages discussion threads to move from one platform to the other.

Attitudes of Face-to-Face and e-Learning Instructors toward 'Active Learning'

Please be sure to check out this paper, appears in the European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning.
Date of publishing 16.11.2010.



Attitudes of Face-to-Face and e-Learning Instructors toward 'Active Learning'
By David Pundak, Orit Herscovitz, Miri Shacham

Abstract
Instruction in higher education has developed significantly over the past two decades, influenced by two trends: promotion of active learning methods and integration of web technology in e-Learning. Many studies found that active teaching improves students' success, involvement and thinking skills. Nevertheless, internationally, most instructors maintain traditional teaching methods.
A research tool – Active Instruction Tendency – (AIT) questionnaire developed on the basis of 'active instructors' experience exposed the transitions they had undergone. Following a review of the literature and examination of 'active instructors' attitudes, six key areas that may characterize the lecturer's tendency to adopt active learning were identified.
Using the AIT questionnaire, we examined attitudes concerning active learning of 135 instructors in three Israeli higher education institutions and 56 European distance and e-learning instructors. Their attitudes were compared with the attitudes of 'active instructors' who, for the past five years, have taught in active learning environments. In all six identified instruction areas, significant differences were found between attitudes of 'active instructors' and other instructors. Identification of these differences expands the theoretical knowledge corpus concerning instructors' attitudes toward active learning, presenting a new tool to characterize these attitudes.
