This one comes via Downes.ca: predictions for 2013, and don't mention za MOOC (he might have once or twice but I think he got away with it)

Much of the oxygen in the world of technology and higher education in 2013 will continue to be consumed by headlines around MOOCs. This is a positive development. The current instantiations of MOOCs are unlikely to have a long and enduring impact but they have catalyzed conversations on the future of higher education in the United States like little else since the GI Bill (The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944). Punctuated equilibrium is likely to set in some time this year and with it, hopefully, an opportunity to assess the pathways forward.

Bloom's taxonomy on a matrix rubric

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.

Insidious Pedagogy: How course management systems impact teaching by Lisa M. Lane

Course management systems, like any other technology, have an inherent purpose implied in their design, and therefore a built–in pedagogy. Although these pedagogies are based on instructivist principles, today’s large CMSs have many features suitable for applying more constructivist pedagogies. Yet few faculty use these features, or even adapt their CMS very much, despite the several customization options. This is because most college instructors do not work or play much on the Web, and thus utilize Web–based systems primarily at their basic level. The defaults of the CMS therefore tend to determine the way Web–novice faculty teach online, encouraging methods based on posting of material and engendering usage that focuses on administrative tasks. A solution to this underutilization of the CMS is to focus on pedagogy for Web–novice faculty and allow a choice of CMS.

America is in crisis. Employers say paradoxically they cannot find the right people to fill jobs even though the country is facing its highest unemployment rates in a generation. Competition with a rising China and India and their vast populations lend urgency to the need for the country as a whole to do a better job of educating its citizens.

A disruptive innovation has a couple key elements or enablers that are particularly salient to the future of higher education. The first is a technology enabler. ... Online learning appears to be this technology enabler for higher education [but]  Plugging a disruptive innovation into an existing business model never results in transformation of the model

 Not focus on degree attainment as the sole measure of success. Degrees are a proxy for skill attainment, but they are far from a perfect one ... Real outcomes and real mastery—as in work portfolios for example—are more important

Online learning is frequently disparaged because it is often asynchronous, and it is often done at a distance. .. when .. seated with 200 other students in the 45th row of the massive Joseph Smith Auditorium  ..everything was “distance” beyond the fifth row.
