The Top 20 Education Next Articles of 2013

Which Education Next articles were most popular in 2013?

Our top article of 2013 was a randomized experiment designed to measure the effect of taking students on a field trip to an art museum. The study concluded, as the authors wrote in an op-ed in the New York Times, that “art makes you smart .”

What other topics were popular?

Five of the top 20 articles for 2013 looked at some aspect of technology in education: an article on flipped classrooms. a study of the effectiveness of online learning for college students, a profile of a charter school that utilizes blended learning to individualize instruction, an article “checking the facts” of a study that evaluated K12 virtual schools, a look at educational apps aimed at preschoolers.

Without further ado, here are the top 20 articles:
