  14. Impact of disconnection
  15. “…the fundamental task of education is to enculturate youth into this knowledge- creating civilization and to help them find a place in it…traditional educational practices – with its emphasis on knowledge transmission – as well as newer constructivist methods both appear to be limited in scope if not entirely missing the point” Scardamalia and Bereiter (2006, Cambridge Handbook of Learning Sciences)

  40. Purdue Signals “To identify students who are at risk academically, Signals combines “predictive modeling” with data-mining from Blackboard Vista, Purdue University’s course management system. When an instructor runs a Signals intervention, each student is assigned to a “risk group”, denoted by one of three stoplight ratings -- corresponding to green (not at-risk), yellow (may be at-risk) or red (at-risk) stoplight icons – which are released to the student’s Blackboard course page.”
