Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:50 PM

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Recherche très pertinente qui apporte un vent de fraîcheur.  On n'y parle pas des emplois du futur, mais plutôt des compétences ou habiletés requises

Martijn Spek's curator insight, April 24, 2013 7:26 AM

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan. Het onderzoek is welliswaar primair gericht op Amerika, maar door de verdere globalisering en internationalisering interessant voor een ieder die met mensen werkt of gaat werken!

" Logical reasoning skills and factual knowledge are only so valuable on their own. Students also need an ‘emotional rudder’—an ability to transfer skills and knowledge to real-world situations—to succeed"

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 21, 2013 3:59 PM

I love that idea of an “emotional rudder,” guiding us as we apply our intellectual knowledge and skills.

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

It's 2012. Technology suffuses everything around us. The Internet and Internet browsers have been pretty mainstream for ===> at least a decade. <===

 

And yet, I continually run into significant numbers of educators who still don't know how to work their Internet browser. They struggle with copying and pasting. They get confused just clicking between 2 or 3 different browser tabs. They don't conceptually understand the difference between their browser's Google search box and the box where they can actually type in the URL and get there directly. They have no idea that they can right-click on things like hyperlinks or images. And so on… [And this is just the Internet browser. I'm not even talking about individual software programs or online tools.]
