Engaging Faculty with New Tech — Campus Technology

David Brodosi classroom How can college and universities encourage faculty to use new technologies in their teaching? We talked with Julin Sharp, assistant vice president for information technology at Marist College, about her institution’s efforts to engage faculty with innovative tools and pedagogies.

Among Sharp’s responsibilities is leading Marist’s Digital Education group, a centralized team that works with faculty across the college to support technology-enabled teaching and learning. The department’s stated mission is as follows:

“Digital Education is committed to leading the promotion, infusion, and support of technology-facilitated pedagogical innovation. This innovation is designed to aid faculty in enriching student learning experiences as a means to develop the intellect, character, and skills required for enlightened, ethical, and productive lives in the global community of the 21st century.

Survey: More than Half of Faculty Believe Classroom Tech Increases Student Engagement — Campus Technology

David Brodosi classroom In a recent survey, 54 percent of faculty respondents said they believe adding more technology to their classroom would definitely increase student engagement. And another 35 percent felt adding more tech could possibly do so. The survey, conducted by Censuswide on behalf of learning management company D2L, polled 500 university professors across the United States on their use of technology, students’ expectations, institutional support for tech and more.

Overall, 92 percent of faculty said their adoption of technology was on par with or ahead of the curve compared to other educators at similar institutions. Male respondents were significantly more confident in their technology use than females, with 49 percent of men considering themselves ahead of the curve compared with 39 percent of women. Yet when asked about six specific uses of technology for teaching, women reported more technology use than men in nearly every category: communicating with

How Personalized Support and a Culture of Data Can Jumpstart Student Success — Campus Technology

David Brodosi USFSPThe University of South Florida has had formal programs to improve graduation and student success rates for a decade. The institution launched a Student Success Task Force in 2009, and was able to raise six-year graduation rates from 48 percent to 68 percent in 2014. But those gains plateaued two points shy of the state of Florida’s benchmark to measure excellence in student success.

So in 2014, the university was looking for a way to jumpstart its student success efforts and continue improving student completion rates. For one thing, it formed a partnership with Civitas Learning to use the company’s predictive analytics platform to better understand students’ needs and enable more precise, effective student support. At the same time, the university created a Persistence Committee that developed a case management approach to addressing students at risk of leaving school. The task force’s early work laid the groundwork for success with

Online Professional Development: 3 Ways to Keep Faculty Coming Back for More — Campus Technology

David Brodosi highered Students are back in class, but colleges and universities face another challenge: how to get faculty to come back to class – as students.

The faculty development unit of Penn State World Campus was created in 2008 with the goal of getting faculty members to take the one and only course we offered at the time: Essentials of Online Teaching, or OL 2000.

But as Penn State’s online offerings have expanded over the years, our faculty development goals have also evolved – from a “one-and-done” approach to a new mission of career-long professional development.

Google launches tool to combat plagiarism — Observatory of Educational Innovation

David BrodosiGoogle for Education announced the launch of a new tool to promote students’ originality on homework and projects — which looks more like an anti-plagiarism initiative.

The tool, called “Originality Reports,” a new feature included in Google Classroom’s Assignments platform, aims to make grading and feedback processes more efficient for teachers and promote best practices in students when referencing the work of others.

A tool against plagiarism

Google knows that teachers use their search engine to uncover cheating. This common practice involves copying and pasting phrases from students’ homework, and the results reveal possible dishonesty situations. This new tool automates this procedure by comparing students’ writings with databases of billions of web pages and millions of books.

IQ tests and their validity in the 21st-century — Observatory of Educational Innovation

David BrodosiWe live in a culture that sees intelligence as part of a person’s value. Smart people get into the best schools, obtain the best jobs, receive the highest salaries, are the leaders, the examples everyone else should follow. If you are the smartest person of a designated group, it is normal that people follow you and that a lot of doors open for you, figuratively. Being smart is a crucial component of success, but… do we measure it correctly?

IQ tests are a fundamental tool to measure student intellectual capacity. We consider them mathematically and scientifically precise, but are they really that? Or are we purposely blinding ourselves to the cultural contexts that power the biases behind the very concept of the intelligence quotient and the tests we use to measure it?

How Augmented Reality Will Bring Space Books to Life | Space

When we read about the glories of space, we often miss the most magnificent part about exploring it: the audiovisual experience. From seeing the beauty of Earth from space as a breathtaking “blue marble” to hearing the words Neil Armstrong spoke when he first stepped onto the lunar soil, the sights and sounds of the most famous space missions are what make these iconic endeavors so memorable No conventional printed book captures the totality of these moments. Imagine opening a book and clicking on a screen, where the first spacewalk is not a picture on a page but a moving, 3D astronaut that pops out of the page. As the astronaut works on a digital mockup of the International Space Station’s exterior, you hear a real recording of an astronaut speaking with capcom while the ambient sounds of the spacesuit’s various pumps and fans hum in the background.

A man built a homemade machine to bring endless water to the Bahamas. You already know the science – CNN

He designed a machine that makes water from the air. Now, after Hurricane Dorian, he’s trying to bring it to the Bahamas.

He designed a machine that makes water from the air. Now, after Hurricane Dorian, he’s trying to bring it to the Bahamas. 
Moses West, of San Antonio, Texas, has brought water to Flint, Michigan, and Puerto Rico — all through his Atmospheric Water Generation machines, which extract moisture from the atmosphere and turn it into water. 
The science behind it is similar to what many learned in elementary school. It’s really just condensation — the same thing that creates moisture when you breathe on a window, for example.
