Arnold Kling on New Higher-Ed Technologies

by George Leef

Economist Arnold Kling writes about new higher-ed technologies in this article in The American. He isn’t impressed by massive, open online courses (“MOOCs”), educational “gamification,” online social learning, smart boards, or clickers, but regards “flipped classrooms” and tablets as winners, and adaptive textbooks and independent certification as magic bullets.

Well worth reading.
