Google officials announced the expansion of their “Rolling Study Halls" program on Monday at a school district on the plains east of Denver. Officials say the move will help reclaim 1.5 million hours of time the thousands of students would otherwise be spending just sitting on buses riding to and from school.

Human capital is a critical element of transforming K-12 education systems for the long term. States need to develop a strategy to attract, support and empower a pipeline of leaders across the state education system to lead the change to personalized, competency-based education.

Educators can build lessons around any TED-Ed Original, TED Talk, or YouTube video through Ted-Ed. Once they locate the video they wish to use, they use the TED-Ed Lessons editor to add questions, discussion prompts, and additional resources. When the lesson is published, educators can monitor their progress and submitted work.

Have you used Ted-Ed Lessons yet?!

Technology changes so rapidly that the newest tablets, phones, and tools are often outdated within a couple years. Pair that fast pace with the education industry, which is notoriously slow to adopt new things, and it doesn’t exactly sound like a recipe for innovation.
But educators can take their classrooms to the next level, and they can innovate, if they know which technologies to keep on their radar.

Elementary school teachers sometimes follow a class of students from year to year. New research suggests that’s a good idea.

“A lot of times when kids move into a new grade, the teachers are like, ‘You learned this last year!’ and the kids are like, ‘We did?’” she said. “But then if you say certain words … you remind them of certain experiences, like ‘Remember when we studied China and we talked about this?’ and then they’re like ‘Oh yeah, I do remember.’ But if you haven’t been there with them for those experiences, it’s harder to activate that knowledge.”

The increase in the number of young children attending state pre-K programs, combined with stronger study methods, “provide greater generalizability” regarding the overall impact of public pre-K programs, the researchers say. As states have focused on increasing access, however, it’s important that administrators with pre-K programs in their schools also focus on classroom quality.

Rural schools face a raft of challenges schools in more densely populated areas do not, including declining enrollments, high socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, high transportation costs, lack of computer and internet access in student homes, low teacher pay, high teacher turnover, fewer teachers and fewer courses available to students. A new report from the Foundation for Blended and Online Learning (FBOL) and the Evergreen Education Group looks at policies and programs in 15 states that use technology to help address some of those problems.
