Despite more global investment in EdTech, not much happened in 2017. Here's a look at where the innovation is happening and two issues that could use more attention from public private partnerships--a barrier and an opportunity
In this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Tom sits down with Daniel to learn more about his life as an international educator, the American School of Paris, Daniel's goals and challenges in international education, and what he thinks all American educators should know about international education.
By: Bob Lenz. I want to offer a peek into some of the thinking you can expect from the final framework, starting with one of the six criteria: project management.
As a venture-based Silicon Valley startup, Minerva has developed slowly over the last seven years. As a new form of higher education, progress from concept to enrollment was lightning fast. Learn more about what sets them apart here.
Post 6 of our #RemakeLearning series shares discussions from the #EdResearchSummit that included the 10 aspects of the #FutureofLearning.
Post 5 of our #RemakeLearning series explores how a group of schools with shared ideals, practices and tools are changing life trajectories for youth and inspiring a culture of possibility.
According to a new report by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's science and knowledge service, Blockchain will end paper based certificates, automate the award, recognition and transfer of credits, increase learner ownership and control over their own data, reduce institutional data costs and risk--but only if open standards are adopted. The JRC report points to likely benefits from blockchain including: Self-sovereignty: users identify themselves while maintaining control over the storage and management of their personal data; Trust: infrastructure that gives people enough confidence in its operations to carry through with transactions such as payments or the issue ...
Post four of our 6-part #RemakeLearning series takes you on a virtual field trip to Montour School District, "home of the evolving educators."
The third post in our 6-part #RemakeLearning series looks at CMU's partnerships with Pittsburgh Districts to advance education innovation and shape a new K-12 approach to computer science.

With four schools on one suburban campus, South Fayette is the best example of K-12 integrated computational thinking we've seen. Yes, kids are learning to code but more importantly, they are learning to attack complex problems, analyze data, and sprint in teams to public products. Bille Pearce Rondinelli, in her ninth year as Superintendent (left), thinks of computational thinking as the new literacy. Embedded into STEAM studio learning model K-12, computational thinking is the ...
