Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

Five brands using crowdsourcing for product and marketing ideas

Five brands using crowdsourcing for product and marketing ideas | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

During a recent discussion about a colleague’s obsession with Lego I was informed of the toymaker’s forays into crowdsourcing new product ideas.

This isn’t a particularly new tactic and I’ve flagged upexamples of crowdsourcing in the past, but it’s a topic that’s worth revisiting as more brands get on board.

 

So in order to inspire your own campaigns or product development, here are five other brands using crowdsourcing...

Lego

As mentioned in the intro, Lego has a dedicated site for fans and customers to contribute their own product ideas.

 

Other users can then vote for their favourite idea, state how much they’d pay for it and explain why they like it so much.

 

If more than 10,000 people support the idea then it goes to the official Lego review board who decide whether or not to put it into production.

 

The creations currently being debated include a replica of Batman’s Wayne Manor, the boat and shark from Jaws, and a red squirrel.

 

It’s a brilliant way for Lego to pilfer ideas from its own customers and test them among the wider community.

This idea is not new, but nonetheless relevant for developing your product. I got inspired - how about you?

Higher education worldwide evolves amid Great Recession | JapanTimes.co.jp

Higher education worldwide evolves amid Great Recession | JapanTimes.co.jp | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

Determined to learn their way out of the Great Recession — or eager to rise above the deprivation of developing lands — unprecedented millions of people have enrolled in colleges and universities around the world in the past five years.

 

What they’re finding is an educational landscape turning upside down. In the United States — where top schools have long championed a liberal style of learning and broad education before specialization — higher education’s focus is shifting to getting students that first job in a still-shaky economy. Tuition is so high and the lingering economic distress so great that an education not directly tied to an occupation is increasingly seen as a luxury.

 

Elsewhere in the world, there is a growing emphasis on broader learning as an economic necessity. Advocates hear employers demanding the “soft skills” — communication, critical thinking and working with diverse groups — that broad-based learning more effectively instills. They want to graduate job-creators, not just job-fillers. They think the biggest innovations come from graduates who are well-rounded — from empathetic engineers, say, or tech-savvy anthropologists.

 

In Europe, where for centuries students have jumped straight into specialized fields and studied little else, recent changes have pushed back specialization, making more room for general education. In Africa and the Middle East, experiments are moving away from a relentlessly narrow education tradition. And on a much bigger scale, China is breaking down the rigid disciplinary walls that have long characterized its higher education system.

Innovation Imperative: Meet Generation Z | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

Generation Zers largely prefer a traditional undergraduate experience augmented by innovations that offer hands-on experiences and practical skills. Nearly eight in 10 (79 percent) favor integrating education programs with employer internships, while 72 percent say colleges should allow students to design their own course of study or major. They also believe that practical skills like financial literacy (85 percent) and entrepreneurship (63 percent) are extremely or very important to obtain in college.

Wearable tech - social media data graphic

Wearable tech - social media data graphic | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

If I said ‘wearable tech‘ to you, what would you think of?

With big names like Google Glass and the imminent release of the iWatch hitting the headlines almost daily and wrists everywhere modelling fitness trackers like the Fitbit and the FuelBand, it wouldn’t take you long to conjure up an example.

 

A couple of years ago, technology that you’d wear every day to enrich your day-to-day life was not exactly widespread.

The last two years has seen a massive surge in the production of wearable technology products and what was once deemed as futuristic geekdom is now pretty common stuff.

There’s a lot said about wearable tech, and what one journalist writes off as ‘over-hyped’ is another’s game-changer. It can be tough to work out whether people seem to think wearable tech is a great idea, or whether they aren’t actually keen.

[Slideshare] Future of Learning and Technology 2020: Preparing for change

The education landscape of 2020 will be characterized by the blurring of boundaries. Learning anywhere and anytime will be commonplace in many different ways based on the ubiquitous and innovative use of technology. Our organizations face a duality of change—conceptual and technological—regarding the practices of education and learning. The practices of teaching, presenting and learning will undergo fundamental change as it responds to global, social, political, technological and of course, learning research trends. Will your organization be ready and prepared to take advantage of these seismic changes to education, learning and technology?
