Drawing on ten years of research into educational innovation and socio-technical change, working with educators, researchers, digital industries, students and policy-makers, this book questions taken-for-granted assumptions about the future of education. Arguing that we have been working with too narrow a vision of the future, Keri Facer makes a case for recognising the challenges that the next two decades may bring.

Raspberry Pi: the Cream on Top?

Raspberry Pi:  the Cream on Top? | Disruptive Nostalgia in Education UK | Scoop.it

The Raspberry Pi is a powerful bare bones computer, based on an ARM chip and incorporating components largely sourced from the consumer device markets where vast runs mean low prices. It is capable of running modern operating systems like Linux, and the team hopes it will do for today's children what, in the UK, the BBC Micro did for their parents, exciting their creative interest in being producers, not just consumers, of computing-based activities and services.
But the device alone will not briong about the shift... other factors are also involved.

Educators to Follow on Twitter

Educators to Follow on Twitter | Disruptive Nostalgia in Education UK | Scoop.it

The challenge of producing lists of educators to follow on Twitter is that any selection is crucially much more to do with the reader's own interests as an educator than some definitive standard of the great and the good. : by Tony Parkin

Why Open Education Matters

Why Open Education Matters | Disruptive Nostalgia in Education UK | Scoop.it

"Today Creative Commons, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Open Society Institute launch the Why Open Education Matters Video Competition. The competition will award cash prizes, provided by the Open Society Institute, of up to $25,000 for the best short videos that explain the use and promise of free, high-quality open educational resources and describe the benefits and opportunities these materials create for teachers, students and schools."

 

A wonderful creative opportunity for educators and students to make videos that promote the use of high quality open educational resources. I am sure this initiative will create some wonderful reusable video resources and spread the word on the value of open educational resources/

 

I can't think of  any  good reason not to enter, nor can I wait to view the submissions. More info here.

Using Education Hashtags on Twitter : PrometheanPlanet

Using Education Hashtags on Twitter : PrometheanPlanet | Disruptive Nostalgia in Education UK | Scoop.it

Many teachers who are novices to Twitter identify #hashtags as something slightly scary and off-putting. Why do so many tweets have these mysterious additions, like #edchat or #LWF12? But the principle behind their use is quite easily explained and, once you have harnessed their power, they can be the educator's best Twitter friend.
