International Education Indicators   http://umanitoba.ca/outreach/csshe/Resources/resources.html  Site Reviews(0)
With the emergence and growth of the global economy, policymakers and educators have turned to international comparisons to assess how well national systems of education are performing. These comparisons shed light on a host of policy issues, from access to education and equity of resources to the quality of school outputs. They provide policymakers with benchmarks to assess their systems' performances, and to identify potential strategies to improve student achievement and system outputs. Education Indicators: An International Perspective is a compilation of indicators from a multitude of data sources which provides a rich array of information on the current state of education internationally. They are intended to provide snapshots of the U.S. education system in comparison to systems in countries around the world. Many of the indicators include comparisons between the United States and other industrialized nations with large economies - particularly those that are viewed as our major economic competitors, for example, the Group of Eight (G8) countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The data presented in these indicators are compiled from recent NCES international reports and surveys: G8 Indicator Reports Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS)

Inovate   http://innovateonline.info/index.php?  Site Reviews(0)
Journal of Online Education. Innovate is a bimonthly, peer-reviewed online periodical (ISSN 1552-3233) published by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova Southeastern University. The journal focuses on the creative use of information technology (IT) to enhance educational processes in academic, commercial, and governmental settings. Our basic assumption is that innovative uses of technology in one sector can inform innovative uses of technology in each of the other sectors. We welcome submissions from a wide community of practitioners—from professors, teachers, trainers, and support specialists to program administrators, software designers, and leaders in the information technology industry. Articles generally fall into one of the following categories: Applied Research and Advanced Practice: Description of a technological innovation and its implementation, even in pilot form, and the provision of evidence that lends credence to its practicality and value. The topic may be large in scale (e.g., a technology tool tested at 10 institutions) or more limited in scope (e.g., a technology tool employed in a science class or in a corporate training program). Example: "Effective Technology Integration in Teacher Education: A Comparative Study of Six Programs." Development: Information on the newest IT educational projects, programs, tools, and trends. Example: "Web Publishing for the Individual, Not the Enterprise." Commentary: Critical reflections on the changing nature of teaching, learning, and training with IT in the 21st century. Example: "Experiencing Knowledge." Ideas to Watch: Concept descriptions that point to important new directions for research, product, and process development. Example: "Video Game Studies and the Emerging Instructional Revolution." Innovate also features a regular column by Stephen Downes. In Places to Go, Downes points readers to Web sites that feature creative uses of information technology in teaching and learning in all sectors of education. If you would like to suggest a site for review, send your nomination to [email protected] Innovate is dedicated to presenting articles via the most dynamic, interactive technology that is available. For each article, the journal provides an interactive webcast that connects authors and readers; a "discuss" feature that allows readers to post comments about the topic or article and respond to the comments of others; a "read-related" feature that links visitors to articles on similar topics; an "easy print" function; and a forwarding option that allows readers to share the article with colleagues. Innovate also offers an RSS (really simple syndication) feed as well as Innovate-Live forums hosted by our partner, ULiveandLearn. The forums currently serve as an experimental call for papers: Interested participants discuss a specific forum topic, present manuscript ideas related to it, and comment on manuscripts already submitted for publication consideration. (The current forum focuses on ePortfolios.)

Issues in Community College Governance   http://www.aacc.nche.edu/Content/NavigationMenu/ResourceCenter/Projects_Partnerships/Current/NewExpe  Site Reviews(0)
Those who govern a college direct, manage, or control the college's talent, energy, and resources. Colleges are governed internally, by administrators and faculty-staff committees, and externally, by local and state boards and sometimes by state legislatures, the courts, and Congress. Community college presidents work to link external and internal governance so that the college receives consistent direction. In the minds of some critics, current community college governance suffers from poor design and poor execution. Because responsibility for governance is shared, no single person or group can be held accountable for making all the college's governance decisions. When they have no direct role in naming the trustees, those who fund the college find college accountability lacking. Many trustees do not understand that boards must decide the college's purposes in order to govern effectively. Others fail to grasp the fact that when boards try to manage the college's daily operations they forfeit the opportunity to decide its mission. Unfortunately, some trustees refuse to commit adequate time and energy to their role. Lacking ethical commitment, a few have used trusteeship for personal gain or to pursue personal agendas. Instead of setting high-level policies for the college, boards too often are used as mere advisory boards for the president. Systematic monitoring of board productivity would improve board performance. Were state and local college boards required to account collectively for their performance, they would press to clarify lines of accountability. More trustees would take advantage of training opportunities. If their product were regularly assessed, boards would be more inclined to streamline governance procedures, to move governance closer to those who understand citizens' needs, and to cooperate with other organizations that serve the same public interest.
