The Ultimate Guide To Emerging Technologies | Edudemic via @pgsimoes

The Ultimate Guide To Emerging Technologies | Edudemic via @pgsimoes | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"Gene therapy? Anti-aging drugs? Neuroinformatics? If this sounds like something out of some Minority Report, you’re in for a surprise. According to a simply amazing visualization by the geniuses at Envisioning Tech, all this and more is coming to your world in the next few decades.

 

And it all starts with education. If we want each of these incredible (some scary, some not) technologies to actually happen, we need to make sure every student and teacher sees this visualization. Seriously. Show this roadmap to a student contemplating a degree in science or math and they’ll be pretty inspired. Who wouldn’t want to be the person who discovered a way to build a SPACE ELEVATOR?! That’s right. That’s one of the emerging technologies."

Exploring Tappestry: A Storable Social Network for Learning | David Kelly

Exploring Tappestry: A Storable Social Network for Learning | David Kelly | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

Now this sounds interesting if you think of it as a platform for augmented social cognition as peer learning -- a knowledge aggregator for personal learning networks. -- Howard

 

"Tappestry is the social network for learning.

For the first time, you can record what you have learned easily and immediately throughout your day. You can come back to it whenever you want. And the best part is you can share with others and learn from others with other social networks and websites.

What did you learn today? With Tappestry, you can track what you have learned and catalog it. Then you can tell everyone. Don’t be shy, you might just meet someone. You can use Tappestry to create and curate your own learning stream. Tappestry is a great place to store your learning and your thoughts and check in those little “A-ha!” moments you have. Think of it as your own learning journal or notebook for things you pick up over the course of your day all woven together to create your own distinct learning fabric, your Tappestry.

Why Tappestry? It helps you learn more. It helps you remember and track what you have learned. It helps take what you have learned and start using it."

4 Questions To Ask Before Implementing Education Technology | Edudemic

4 Questions To Ask Before Implementing Education Technology | Edudemic | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"As the use of technology continues to flourish and grow in schools everywhere, it’s time for schools and districts to be more intentional about crafting a comprehensive K-12 (or Y5-12) vision for education technology.

Too often, technology implementation is haphazard at best; an ever-increasing number of devices, websites, and apps are used in an attempt to meet students’ learning needs, but little thought is given to coordinating that technology use in a meaningful way throughout a students’ K-12 experience." - from source

A good compendium of case histories of augmented collective intelligence -- Howard

 

"Perhaps the gold standard for collective investigative reporting is the MPs Expenses experiment by Simon Willison at the Guardian where 170,000 documents were reviewed by 15,000 people in the first 80 hours after it went live. The Guardian has deployed its readers to uncover truth in a range of different stories, most recently with the Privatised Public Spaces story. We’ve also looked at crowdmapping broadband speeds across the UK, and Joanna Geary’s ‘Tracking the Trackers‘ project uncovered some fascinating data about the worst web browser cookie abusers. #

Last year Germany’s defense minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, a man once considered destined for an even larger role in the government, was forced to resign from his post as a result of allegations that he plagiarized his doctoral thesis. It was proved to be true by a group of people working collectively on the investigation using a site called GuttenPlag Wiki. #"
