The U.S. education trend data are not pretty. The challenges around the completion of credentials past high school in particular are real and growing. However, an optimist might take heart in the rising embrace of innovative technologies, creative student support and dynamic delivery models, cross-sector partnerships, and advanced data use and say that there's hope on the horizon. In this presentation we'll explore the likely challenges and opportunities on the agenda as we move to help more students succeed on the road ahead.

#Eli12_FS01 #ELI2012 Hope of learning analytics - individualization of learning?

RT @adtlr: #Eli12_FS01 #ELI2012 Hope of learning analytics - individualization of learning?

Maybe a vicious circle here. “@adtlr: #Eli12_FS01 #ELI2012 Hope of learning analytics - individualization of learning?”

THIS ----> RT @mdpistilli: Amazon gets you recs in < 1 sec. Education takes weeks, months, years... make it faster. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Learning MUST be at the core of your conversation. It is what matters most. E'thing else must support that assertion. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Unis need to triage student success - where are they hemorrhaging students and address that w/ BEST fac & instructors. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

per @markmilliron - beware of CAVE people - Colleagues Against Virtually Everything #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Too much time spent arguing the qual of the data, the politicalness of data, ed of BOT. Use what you have and go! #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

.@markmilliron Takes avg uni 1 year to harvest & analyze data & report to students. TOO LONG. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

The power of data in education is going to be powerful... http://t.co/7nsWGKPU. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Horizon: Ecosystem of apps to get data to learners. @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Tenacious students w/ growth (willing to learn, get better) (v. fixed) mindset do better - but MUST self-regulate. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Convo 5: New Learning Models and Institutions must be developed and implemented. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Move away from "better than" convo to a "better with" convo. Not competition, collaboration. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Post credential, more often than not, social network gets person a job. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Need: Critical, Creative, Social, Courageous learning. Can your inst model these things? #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

UTEP does "reverse transfer." Stdts who trans from CC w/ 48 creds have creds sent back to CC AND then awarded AA/AS #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Convo 4: Learning innovation and technology - analytics, blended learning, gamification, personal learning networks #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Use tech to innovate classroom- digital lectures as hmwrk, exercises during class. Make face time more effective. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

THIS. @milliron Ppl too wowed by bells and whistles and not looking for impact on learners. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Amazon gets you recs in < 1 sec. Education takes weeks, months, years... make it faster. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

#ELI12_FS01 soon accrediting agencies will be accrediting learning -- not institutions. See Clay Shirky's work on demise of institutions.

Learning outcomes don't need to be achieved in a 16wk term; students can achieve at own pace! #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Question 2: Learner focus. Who we are _actually_ serving v. who we _wish_ we were serving. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

We need to get better at understanding who our actual lrners are - can you def'n 5-7 types of students on your campus? #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Question/Convo 3: Learning credential pathways. Stdnts w/ subcredential are more likely to finish credentialing pgm #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

#ELI12_FS01 whoa. Thank god I'm classified as sexy. Happy Vday all.

#ELI12_FS01 Can we name 5 Learner Profiles of students at our institution.

Apparently, I'm a sneaky person, according to my left thumb being on top. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

RT @mdpistilli: Apparently, I'm a sneaky person, according to my left thumb being on top. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

If you thoughtfully care about how to apply tech to ed, care about how it feels to learners/users. @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

5 conversations need to be had. 1) Technology MUST be learning centered. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Nix dev ed; use diagnostic testing to do accelerated modular ed to remediate issues and mainstream faster. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Challenge: tradition is getting in the way of lrning. Course-based solutions, not module or needs based. @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Teaching is not based on students learning at different rates, and this is a problem. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Challenge of optimism in HiEd: intergenerational poverty transmission is at its highest. @markmilliron #ELI2012 #ELI12_FS01

Add'l challenge: pathways to college drastically increased, but ~50% leave college b4 earning credential @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

By 2018, 63% of new jobs will req postsecondary education @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

innovations are deeply tied to education, but need to focus on the need for education @markmilliron #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012

Truth.@markmilliron just made the case that education is a way for students to improve self efficacy. #ELI12_FS01 #ELI2012
