Bill Gates Waves

13 Oct

1. Gates Foundation new $20 million initiative in US identifies four specific challenges:
• Increasing the use of blended learning models, which combine face-to-face instruction with online learning activities;
• Deepening students’ learning and engagement through the use of interactive applications, such as digital games, interactive video, immersive simulations, and social media;
• Supporting the availability of high-quality open courseware, particularly for high-enrollment introductory classes like math, science, and English, which often have low rates of student success; and
• Helping institutions, instructors, and students benefit from learning analytics, which can monitor student progress in real-time and customize proven supports and interventions. http://nextgenlearning.com/the-grants/learn-more
