Gary Hayes's curator insight, August 28, 9:25 AM
Quote "According to a release from UAT, the institution originally began offering this unique degree tract all the way back in 1991. The VR scene was present at that point in history but it did not poses anywhere near the traction and mass-market potential that it does today in a post-Oculus world. Because of this resurgence in VR’s popularity, and its potential as a viable job market, UAT made the decision to bring back the VR major 25 after it was shuttered."

Why It’s Critical for the Next Gen to Be Tech Creators Not Consumers

Why It’s Critical for the Next Gen to Be Tech Creators Not Consumers | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
ACCORDING TO AYAH Bdeir, technology is the language of our time. The 33-year-old founder and CEO of littleBits likes to compare the engineers of today to the clergy of the Middle Ages, who controlled access to knowledge and power via their monopoly over the use and understanding of the written word. Today’s engineers have a special kind of social and technological influence, which derives from their understanding of the stuff that makes our everyday gadgets work. If our lives today depend on technology, then those who truly understand it have an outsized influence over the rest of us.

Michelle Nimchuk's curator insight, August 25, 1:04 PM

Bdeir states “My mission with littleBits is to equip a new generation of confident and creative problem-solvers,” she says. “Once kids are tech-literate, they’re prepared to take on any challenges that emerge. Rather than adapting to the technology that comes at them, they’ll adapt the technology to their own needs. It’s just a matter of changing their attitude.” I love it!
