The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now

The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now | 3D Virtual Worlds: Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y. But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise."

How Medieval-Style Guilds Will Remake the Tech Behind Facebook and Google

How Medieval-Style Guilds Will Remake the Tech Behind Facebook and Google | 3D Virtual Worlds: Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Drawing on a practice that dates back to medieval times, a guild is a group of craftspeople or merchants who’ve banded together because they all do the same thing. One guild is for vintners, another for masons, and so on. There are hundreds of guilds across England, Pearce says, and each provides a way for craftspeople to share certain tricks of their craft. The members of a guild come together, he explains, to “figure out how best to run their trades,” to hone their operations in ways they couldn’t hone them on their own.
