References, Sites for education + technology

Smarthistory.org is a free multi-media web-book designed as a dynamic enhancement (or even substitute) for the traditional art history textbook. Winner 2009 Webby Awards for Best Education Site.

2010 Horizon Report The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium’s Horizon Project, a qualitative research project established in 2002 that identifies and describes emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative inquiry on college and university campuses within the next five years. The 2010 Horizon Report is the seventh in the series and is produced as part of an ongoing collaboration between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE program.

This is just a quick start. Please add to this list.

    For your inner data wonk, you’ll find rich resources at the U.S Department of Education’s website for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) – http://nces.ed.gov/. Statistics for K-12 and higher education cover a wide range of issues including technology, curriculum, assessment, campus quality of life issues, demographis etc.

    Also, I highly encourage teams to use the RAND Corporation website. Education is one of their many areas of research. Go to http://www.rand.org/research_areas/education/. Formed for the purpose of ‘improving policy and decision-making through research and analysis’ RAND is funded primarily through federal, state and local government agencies. To give you an idea on the scope of their work, RAND brought in more than 230.7 million dollars through contributions and earnings from investments in 2008.

    Although founded in 1915 to advocate and support the idea of undergraduate liberal education, the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) in contemporary times has over 1,200 member institutions comprised of virtually every type and size of accredited colleges/universities. AAC&U organizes it’s mission and work around these five themes: Vision for Liberal Education, Inclusive Excellence, Intentional and Integrative Learning, Civic, Diversity and Global Engagement; and Authentic Evidence. Should have applications for all visioning groups but especially Curriculum and Pedagogy as well as Students and Student Life. http://www.aacu.org/index.cfm

    Intro to Systems Theory:


    What is an “open system”?

    An open system is any distinct entity — a cell, a person, a forest, or an orchestra organization — that takes in resources from its environment, processes them in some way, and produces output. To survive, such a system depends on its environment, and on interactions between its component parts or subsystems. When taking an open-systems approach, we look both inward and outward. We are interested in relationships and patterns of interaction between subsystems and their environments within the organization. We also look for relationships and reciprocal influences between the organization and the environment outside its formal “boundary.”
