Re-Mixxer: Using French and German OER in The Mixxer

Last year, the Mixxer (a free educational website for language exchanges via Skype) offered a MOOC to English speakers learning Spanish and paired the participants with a partner course of Spanish speakers learning English. Using open educational resources from COERLL, Colby College, Voice for America and the BBC among others, the language learners were introduced to new vocabulary and grammar points through texts and audio and then given activities to complete with their language partner from the other course.

Robots and Education Labor #bccagora

I gave a talk this morning at Berkeley City College as part of an event about outsourcing, adjunctivism, and higher education culture. I wanted to talk about labor and technology -- not just about MOOCs, essay-grading software, and other education technologies in the news and in classrooms today, but about some of the history of automation in education as well.

In this week's news: more details about the new SAT. Udacity will no longer offer free certification to its MOOC completers. Coursera's CEO rewrites online education history. Tony Bates is retiring. Chegg buys a daily deals site. 60 years after Brown v Board of Education, US schools are resegregating. RIP Gabriel García Márquez. And hey! My other project Educating Modern Learners is now live!

Hack Education Weekly News: The End of InBloom?

In this week's education news: InBloom loses its final customer (New York State). PISA results (that's always fun). 2U ends its Semester Online initiative. Don't interpret that as a triumph for MOOCs though. Even MIT is raising an eyebrow at MOOCs now. Money money money for ed-tech companies. Some pretty awesome college admissions achievements for a handful of young Black men, prompting WaPo's Valerie Strauss to say we shouldn't talk any more about college admissions. WTF.
