Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, May 27, 2014 1:40 AM

Very interesting video, but regarding point 3. that "We are moving to right-brain work-jobs" I must note there are no "right-brain" jobs. This left-right brain distinction is oversimplified neuromyth.

 

“The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction does not offer us the full picture of how creativity is implemented in the brain.* Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.” (http://t.co/3l5nM7IsEi)

The future of work. 

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, June 9, 2014 10:53 PM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Media and technology futurist Gerd Leonhardoutlines his vision of the future of work given the many profound changes shaping the planet during the coming decades.

 

Key highlights: 

 

We will be able to offload tedious, repetitive work to computers and robots who will replace rapidly many of our present jobs

At the same time entirely new jobs will be created - for example:
Digital Curation 
Social Engineering
Artificial Intelligence Designers 

We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

Olga Senognoeva's curator insight, August 12, 2014 4:39 AM

"... Как будет выглядеть будущее образования?


1. Цена содержания будет свободное падение в течение ближайших семи лет. Мы услышали первые раскаты прошлом году, когда Верховный суд постановил , что американские владельцы авторских прав не может остановить импорт и перепродавать, защищенных авторским правом контента легально продаются за рубежом, прокладывая путь для глобального рынка учебников.


2. Поставка учебных материалов будет набухать. Это может показаться нелогичным, но, как мы движемся в сторону глобального рынка за содержание, создатели будет цена берущих, не в состоянии командовать много переговорах, учитывая огромный размер распределительных платформ (думаю Itunes). В то время как это может сделать меньше смысла для профессора в Нью-Йорке, чтобы написать книгу, она делает много смысла для одного в Мумбаи.


3. Образование будет персональной. С содержания обучения предоставляется по требованию, студенты будут более иметь возможность строить программы на получение степени из широкого спектра учреждений, предлагающих особые курсы.
Университеты будут властвовать курирование, работая талантов агентств. Они нарисую роялти и лицензионные платежи от содержания профессора создания и хранения. Во многих отношениях, роль лучших университетов станет еще больше ориентирован на выявление, инвестируя в и уборки отдачу от большого таланта.


Студенты являются победителями здесь. Снижение стоимости содержания в сочетании с усилением конкуренции среди профессоров, и более низкой средней рентабельности для университетов в профессора, приведет к снижению затрат на обучение и больших профессоров choice.Great с междисциплинарных знаниях великих кураторов-увидим лицензии и лицензионных платежей подняться как они Команда эффект масштаба в распределении. Существующие институты с большими запасами станет лейблов: платформы, которые инвестируют в большой талант. И распределительные платформы, викария содержание будет делать хорошо, командуя как эффект масштаба и охвата."

How Propaganda Uses Lies to Erode All Truth & Morality: The Origins of Totalitarianism 

How Propaganda Uses Lies to Erode All Truth & Morality: The Origins of Totalitarianism  | lead.libr.edu | Scoop.it
At least when I was in grade school, we learned the very basics of how the Third Reich came to power in the early 1930s. Paramilitary gangs terrorizing the opposition, the incompetence and opportunism of German conservatives, the Reichstag Fire. And we learned about the critical importance of propaganda, the deliberate misinforming of the public in order to sway opinions en masse and achieve popular support (or at least the appearance of it).

 

While Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels purged Jewish and leftist artists and writers, he built a massive media infrastructure that played, writes PBS, “probably the most important role in creating an atmosphere in Germany that made it possible for the Nazis to commit terrible atrocities against Jews, homosexuals, and other minorities.”

如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。
