Science & Education News Digest: June 2017

Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for June 2017.

There’s been some moving and shaking since our last News Digest. There’s a new parliament, after a bit of a delay and much ongoing debate. The TEF Year 2 results have also been announced, also after a bit of a delay and much ongoing debate!

Jisc reports findings of a 22,000-strong survey of students and their use of digital learning at their institutions.

We also look at the connection between birds’ egg and wing shape, and how drones could be replanting a forest in the next few years.

10 Science & Tech Discoveries that are 10 Years Old (Like Us!)

2007 was a big year for Learning Science - it was the year we came into existence! It’s now been a full 10 years of science, technology and education here at LearnSciHQ, the perfect opportunity to both celebrate and reflect.

We’ve planned a series of articles for the coming weeks and months on the past, present and future of our favourite topics: science, technology and education. For example - how has e-learning changed in the last ten years? What myths have been debunked? And what could be the future of Higher Education?

But for now, here’s 10 of our favourite science & tech news stories from 2007: the year of our founding.

Science & Education News Digest: Feb 2017

Welcome to Learning Science’s News Digest for February 2017.

In case you missed the inaugural edition, each month we feature news stories, articles and blogs from across the Internet on topics including Higher Education Policy, education and tech innovations and other aspects of modern student life.

Here at Learning Science we are approaching our 10-year anniversary, an opportunity to  reflect on the past and look forward to the future. So we were particularly interested in the new NMC Horizons report on upcoming education technology. See the Guest Topic section below for more details, and stay tuned for our anniversary articles and lists later this year.

Science & Education News Digest: Jan 2017

Each month we’ll feature a selection of news pieces, articles and blogs from across the Internet. We’ll be focussing on three hot topics: News from the Education (particularly Higher Education) sphere, education and tech innovations or studies that caught our eye, and other aspects of student life today.

Our guest topic this month is New Year, New Education? What is predicted to change in 2017... and what should change (in the opinion of one academic)?
