Education Week article on Highlights
Universities have long regarded improving K-12 education as part of their mission, said Diana G. Oblinger, the president of Educause, a Washington-based nonprofit group that supports technology’s use at colleges and universities. In recent years, however, more institutions have gone from providing online resources “about” math and science to providing access to firsthand research and courses those schools’ faculty are conducting themselves. What makes the MIT high school site unusual, she said, is its simplicity and clear organization. “One of the biggest barriers for people using this material is time,” Ms. Oblinger said. “You need to make it easy for people and integrate it.”
It’s great to get this coverage in a place like Education Week, where we can reach those Highlights was intended to serve.
