Not surprisingly, the two critical elements needed to support personalized learning are good teachers and plenty of time. No shortcuts, I'm afriad.

Good, although not surprising reflections from Mike Shatzkin on the challenges facing publishers in 2017.
I am getting ready to attend my first Digital Book World as a “civilian” (having programmed and moderated the first seven), Thinking about DBW entails recognizing how different the book publishing world today is from what I expected three or six years ago. Be that as it may, the big challenges for the industry — …

I enjoyed this post by +Bernard Bull. I am also mindful of how, in addition to one set of large platforms being replaced by another, these shifts also provide tremendous opportunities for boutique, highly personal/service-oriented solutions. 
Preferred and trusted digital platforms like Amazon are changing our world, and they will help reshape education as well.

Here is the first in a series of posts on what it means to be a 21st century publisher. We're working to define our company and culture according to these characteristics. I welcome any feedback on these. +Stacy Zemke and I are thinking deeply about our responsibilities to the broader learning community, as well as to our adopting partners. We feel like this outline is a good start.
[This is the first in a series of six articles on the characteristics of 21st century educational publishers.] As we set out to build a new kind of publishing company at EdBooks, we contemplated what it means to be a 21st century educational publisher. Is it a focus on digital technologies? Is it related to new ...

Resharing to my Learning Environment Design collection. This whole series is really thoughtful.

+Rob Reynolds I benefit from it every day in my interactions with people online here and at Twitter too... but it's easy for days to go by without any substantive interaction with anyone at OU and, if/when it happens, it is rarely with a faculty member, and instead usually with a staff member in the Library, Writing Center, CTE, etc.
