Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work

Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"Americans are currently faced with a shortage of jobs, but by 2018 the nation will be faced with a shortage of educated workers. This project began in Louisiana, where 100,000 skilled labor jobs are currently unfilled. If the future workforce continues to be trained for the past, particularly as other countries look ahead, Americans will no longer be globally competitive as the domestic economy and infrastructure continue to collapse.

 

"Can that be prevented, and if so, how? With the industrial era crumbling behind us and technological developments rapidly accelerating toward a hybrid reality that still hasn’t fully manifested, the co-directors of this project, Rita J. King and Joshua Fouts, call this fleeting period between the two longer eras the “Imagination Age,” a time during which humanity must imagine and then create, together, the systems of the new global economy and culture.

 

"Since 2007, the directors of this project have been collaborating on the development of imagination as the driving force behind this shift. The research and field work covered in this project began in January 2009. Rather than publishing results as a book or white paper, both of which are one-sided approaches to a subject that demands a conversation, an interactive site was chosen as the format.

 

"This site doesn’t just present theories and ideas, but rather actionable solutions that can be immediately and easily implemented in service of a relevant education for American students who need to gain proficiency if not mastery of core subject areas while at the same time being prepared for the reality of future work. Imagination is a broad topic, encompassing everything the mind can conjure, so the findings in this report are focused on those that overlap with the changing world of work."

This site is a remarkable piece of work. The authors, King and Fouts, have assembled a series of essays and resources about the medium range future and how we can make it better.

Great innovators don’t necessarily follow straight paths. Often a winding path can shape their defining inventions.

Joselu's curator insight, August 20, 3:26 AM

Estoy aprendiendo a usar Sway y es ciertamente muy interesante. Un problema que le encuentro es que no se pueden realizar directamente grabaciones de voz para acompañar a las imágenes o cuadros conceptuales, y que no hay un sistema para hacer avanzar los materiales si no es manual. No obstante está bien. Se pueden importar presentaciones en Power Point que quedan adaptadas a Sway muy bien teniendo mucha más prestancia y atractivo.

MOOC Professors' Agency in the Face of Disruption

MOOC Professors' Agency in the Face of Disruption | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
Stanford University used MOOCs as an opportunity to create a supportive environment for faculty to explore, create, and express themselves in new ways through open and digital education. Following its early support for MOOCs, Stanford built "soft infrastructure" to incubate good ideas and allow courses to evolve over time.

These 27 questions will help you (really) know your learners

These 27 questions will help you (really) know your learners | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
What’s the point of creating a course that no one wants?

No point at all, right?

YET, we find hundreds of eLearning designers creating courses that nobody wants. Courses which the designers themselves can’t figure: who would want!

It should ALWAYS be the other way around.

Designers must first understand their target audience and then build content around their needs, circumstances, limitations, preferences, and wants. This means that one must move beyond the common descriptions handed out by SMEs, the manager, or even the client.

Hence, this post where I will talk about empathy mapping — an intuitive, yet highly powerful framework that uses a set of questions that puts you in your audience’s shoes. It is a great way for engaging with SMEs as well as performing your own research.
