Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers

Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.

The Educational Potential of Augmented Reality

The Educational Potential of Augmented Reality | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

I’m not sure about you, but watching my neighborhood—OK, the entire world—become obsessed with the augmented reality (AR) game Pokémon Go, I knew I had better do some serious research into AR’s implications and applications.

VIRTUAL VS. AUGMENTED

Sportvision
Unlike virtual reality, which offers the user a 360-degree view of an artificial world, augmented reality superimposes an image, video or some other digital overlay onto our view of the real world in real time. For example, AR has long been used in Sportvision to project the first down marker in football. It’s not actually on the field, but it is on viewers’ screens. You’ll see other examples in the Olympic games, when commentators project images over the screen to show a diver’s or racer’s speed or form.

Magic Leap
Since AR enhances the information we can perceive with our senses, like a virtual dinosaur sprouting out of text on the Mesozoic Era, it often immerses users into the experience in a way that makes learning more meaningful. It can be exciting, such as Magic Leap’s elephant in your hands, or perhaps even quite distracting, as Pokémon GO players walk into lakes, fall off cliffs, or even drive into police cars.

The High Cost of Low Technology Skills in the U.S.--and What We Can Do About ItAlthough American millennials are the first generation of "digital natives"--that is, people who grew up with computers and the internet--they are not very tech savvy. That fact would probably come as a shock to most Americans--especially to millennials themselves. After all, millennials are glued to their phones, tablets, and other devices. Many assume that using technology often means using it well.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 22, 2015 8:29 PM

83% of millennials sleep with their phones but cannot solve simple tech problems. Time on tech does not necessarily equal a proficient user. And many do not recognize the barrier it causes in their overall work performance. I am not particularly tech savvy (despite my nice $20K master's degree in educational technology) but I am relentless in problem solving and if something is broke, I will seek out support to find the answers. I will fix it (with support) so that I can produce results. Incorporating technology into everyday learning can help students tackle problems and aid them in being productive in their work and life.

Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning

Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Preparing Leaders For Deeper Learning
Authored by Karen Cator, Bonnie Lathram, Carri Schneider and Tom Vander Ark
Download the Full Paper
In partnership with: Digital Promise

In the paper, Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning, released jointly by Getting Smart and Digital Promise, we assert the need for programs that prepare and develop school and district leaders who will create and sustain deeper learning environments. (The paper is the fourth in a series from Getting Smart that explores the shift to deeper learning).

The paper addresses two fundamental questions:

As a growing body of schools and districts recognize the need for deeper, blended, competency-based learning environments for students, how must the role of leaders evolve to create and sustain them?
How must leader preparation and ongoing professional development evolve to fully enable teacher and leader success in this new environment?
The paper captured a diverse set of voices – ranging from current practicing principals to representatives from pioneering programs and organizations whose missions address educational leadership challenges. The team reviewed the literature on leadership development and spent a year tracking the progress of high-performing educational leadership programs, talking to practitioners and researchers at conferences and events to learn from others passionate about this work; this yielded dozens of conversations and 50 guest blog contributions to inform the research, resulting in a paper that is a compilation of many voices, perspectives and ideas.

A 21st-century higher education: training for jobs of the future

A 21st-century higher education: training for jobs of the future | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Only the brave or foolhardy would claim knowledge about the shape of jobs for the next decade, let alone the rest of the 21st century. We know that the end of local car manufacturing alone will involve the loss of up to 200,000 jobs directly or indirectly, and there will be no large-scale manufacturing to replace them.

We also cannot assume that employment in health and human services will continue to expand in their place. Globally, millions of dollars are being invested in robotic monitors, nurses and companions for the elderly. The driverless car is almost with us, meaning that even Uber’s moment in the sun may be brief.

So if we’re not sure what the jobs of the future will look like, what kind of tertiary education can prepare students for the world of work? Various forces will be at play including economic (such as continued globalisation and intensification of competition), social (such as the ageing of Australia’s population), and technological (automation, digitalisation). There are also powerful environmental constraints.
What kind of education can prepare us for the future?

Trends Shaping Education 2016 - en - OECD

Trends Shaping Education 2016 - en - OECD | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Did you ever wonder if education has a role to play in stemming the obesity epidemic sweeping across all OECD countries? Or what the impact of increasing urbanisation might be on our schools, families, and communities? Or whether new technologies really are fundamentally changing the way our children think and learn?

Trends Shaping Education examines major trends affecting the future of education and sets the background on upcoming challenges for policy makers and education providers alike. This work does not give conclusive answers: it is not an analytical report nor is it a statistical compendium, and it is certainly not a statement of OECD policy on these different developments. It is instead a stimulus for thinking about major tendencies that have the potential to influence education, and conversely, the potential of education to influence these trends.

Why Learning Anywhere is the Near-Future for HigherEd — The Higher Education Revolution — Medium

Why Learning Anywhere is the Near-Future for HigherEd - The Higher Education Revolution - Medium

Imagine yourself at 18 today. If you are lucky, you will be leaving a secondary education that was able to effectively instill knowledge while inspiring the curiosity and drive for more. Perhaps you have the motivation (whether innate or inspired) to explore more growth through the university system, but perhaps you look at the world around you with awe and wonder. With the latter perspective, you may see local or global issues and challenges as being ripe for critical thinking, even innovation and practice. (I understand that there is a rather large unlucky cohort that exits secondary schooling, with or without a diploma, but certainly without this level of inspiration and intrigue. I would posit, however, that this hypothetical perspective could still apply to them, or you if you would characterize yourself as such and happen to be reading this.) In any case, there is an evolving dynamic of education that would encourage you to embark down the winding, unknown path that this latter approach would lay at your feet.
