Hay una cadena de fruterías en Madrid (y no sé si en otras partes de España) que se llama así:Calle de Magdalena Díez¿Y para qué usamos esta expresión en España? ¿Cuándo invocamos a nuestra madre? Básicamente en dos situaciones: - Cuando expresamos algún temor: ¡Ay, madre, la factura de la luz que voy a tener que pagar este mes!- Cuando nos encontramos frente a algo destacado, que puede ser

The problem with the premise in the headline is I hope evident, since the meaning of education runs far wider than monetary value, but if you're paying £9000 tuition you are going to be attentive to the value you're receiving for that money, educational or otherwise. The key...

6 Steps to Breaking Up With Your OPM

Publicado en OLDaily el 15/01/2021

Blackboard Blog, Jan 15, 2021

It's interesting that Blackboard would post this, because I would expect the company maintains strong relations with Online Program Management (OPM) companies, but maybe not.

Terry Freedman comments on the British Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) set of "some useful tips" on remote education. His criticisms, I think, are well founded (and the Ofsted document reads like someone trying to correct what is what is...

Publicado en OLDaily el 14/01/2021

Concordia University, Jan 14, 2021

The page is the Concordia Research data management guide but I'm recommending the embedded video. Ignore the cheap animation and computer-generated voice. It's short and hilarious and a great example of a data management horror story. If you're doing research on education technology, you would be well advised to follow this guide (and hence, to avoid saying things...

The short answer is: because nobody trusts Facebook, which owns the popular messaging platform WhatsApp. Recent "confusion over an updated terms of service notification from Facebook" hasn't helped either. "Many users expressed concerns about a section of WhatsApp's privacy policy that details...

This blog post summarizes the research in 'Accessibility of Open Educational Resources: how well are they suited for English learners?', but unfortunately that's as close as you'll get to it, since the paper by Irina Rets, Tim Coughlan, Ursula Stickler and Lluisa Astruc is locked behind a...

There has been a spate of articles recently linking the unrest in the United States to failures of the education system. I'm leading with this article from the Chronicle, but you can find similar views expressed by (for example) Forbes (...
