Brain Scans Could Replace The SAT By 2032

Brain Scans Could Replace The SAT By 2032 | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Imagine it's the year 2032. You are a high school student. You are at a center where a visual scanner confirms your identity so you can enter a room where you are about to receive a brain scan. A robot attendant with a soothing voice recommends that you should relax and that you are welcome to take a nap. As you lie down in the scanner and earphones playing your favorite music block out ambient noise, you find yourself drifting off to sleep.


You wake up. The scan is now over and there is good news. You don't have any medical complications. Rather, you've found out that with your brain characteristics, you have a good chance of being admitted to the college of your dreams. Why is that?

Google’s Augmented Reality Concept Video - Project Glass: One day...

We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don't.

A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.

Follow along with us at http://g.co/projectglass as we share some of our ideas and stories. We'd love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now?

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The Xconomy team posed this question to their network [read: an older audience], reaching out to the people they knew “it would resonate well with.” And while we’ll include some of the answers they received, we decided to reach out to our own network and ask the question ourselves, curious as to whether a younger audience — whether they be fresh out of college, going for their MBA, or newly into their thirties, still trying to figure things out — would have something different to say.

Future proof your Education

Future proof your Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The concept of 21st Learning has been around since the 1990s. There was a recognition that with the pace of technological change, the jobs of the 20th Century would be unrecognisable to those living in the 21st Century. We had to prepare our students for a future of great difference and uncertainty. As a result, we needed to move towards a more independent, skills based education system rather than the model we had that was based on content knowledge and specific skills for specific jobs. Well, we are into the second decade of the 21st Century and the question has to be asked – how well have we advanced in developing 21st Century Learners?

The computing trend that will change everything | KurzweilAI | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The power needed to perform a task requiring a fixed number of computations will continue to fall by half every 1.5 years (or a factor of 100 every decade). As a result, even smaller and less power-intensive computing devices will proliferate, paving the way for new mobile computing and communications applications that vastly increase our ability to collect and use data in real time
