Digital guru Larry Johnson says mobile devices will revolutionise education - Tim Dodd, AFR

Teaching is not sufficiently valued in higher education and universities should be creating more professional pathways for academics who are talented teachers, according to US digital education expert Larry Johnson. Dr Johnson, who heads the non-profit think tank New Media Consortium (NMC), said universities "need to give priority to hire people who are not just discipline experts but also pedagogical experts". "Any department needs to have people who are really good teachers as well as people who are really good researchers," he said. http://www.afr.com/technology/apps/education/digital-guru-larry-johnson-says-mobile-devices-will-revolutionise-education-20150531-ghb75m
