Forma innovadora de cómo combinar dos recursos digitales para implementar a través del juego con realidad aumentada, el sistema eLearning complementado con reactivos, mismos que se podrían adecuar para el desarrollo de contenidos en el área de las ciencias sociales por ejemplo. Esto requiere de equipos multidisciplinarios y equipos de producción de materiales didácticos interactivos, tal vez ya contemplados por las empresas dedicadas a la producción de software educativo en línea.

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay) | Inside Higher Ed

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay) | Inside Higher Ed | Education Technology | Scoop.it
ByPamela E. Barnett 

The “flipped classroom” is the idea of the moment, advocated by everyone from Bill Gates to Eric Mazur, the pioneering science educator. This educational innovation is exciting and promising – but I’d argue for a slight revision to the discourse to make sure we don’t replace one rigid format with another. My suggestion: let’s scramble, not flip, the classroom.

Educause, a leading organization for advancing the effective use of instructional technology, defines the flipped classroom “as a model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed." In the well-known Khan Academy model, students view short video lectures at home, freeing up class time for heads on and hands on engagement with course content, guided by the instructor. Proponents are definitely on to something – why did practice so often happen as “homework”?

Can we survive technology? - Fortune Features

Can we survive technology? - Fortune Features | Education Technology | Scoop.it
We live in a world of unending progress. But technological advancement poses as many difficult questions as it answers.

Editor's note: Every Sunday, Fortune publishes a favorite story from our magazine archives. This week, to mark our Future Issue, we turn to a feature from June 1955 by John von Neumann tackling the profound questions wrought by radical technical advancement—in von Neumann's day the atomic bomb and climate change. von Neumann was one of the twentieth century's greatest and most influential geniuses. The polymath and patron saint of Game Theorywas instrumental in developing America's nuclear superiority toward the end of World War II as well as in framing the decades-long Cold War with the Soviet Union. In his time, von Neumann was said to possess "the world's greatest mind." Here is his characteristically pessimistic look on what the future holds.

The pleasures of self-determined learning: Massive Open Online Courses | TEDxVienna

The pleasures of self-determined learning: Massive Open Online Courses | TEDxVienna | Education Technology | Scoop.it

It’s hard to collect ideas about the future of education without – rather sooner than later – coming across a smoothly pronouncable acronym: MOOCs, short for Massive Open Online Courses. MOOCs are based on the idea of publishing high quality lectures about any imaginable subject on the web in a format that makes them accessible to interested people all around the world – for free.
And if you happen to picture a selection of undoubtedly useful, but rather superficial video tutorials one might watch out of instant necessities…be happy, you’re wrong. Some examples: Udacity is a spin-off by Stanford University, Coursera collaborates with the University of Washington, the Georgia Institute of Technology and many others. Lectures go way beyond isolated 20 minutes how-to-videos, but rather represent modules ofapproximately six to ten weeks where you can gain deep understanding of a specific subject, be it Model Thinking or History of Rock, Medical Neuroscience or Operations Management.

Artificial Intelligence Cracks 4,000-Year-Old Mystery - Wired Science

Artificial Intelligence Cracks 4,000-Year-Old Mystery - Wired Science | Education Technology | Scoop.it

An ancient script that’s defied generations of archaeologists has yielded some of its secrets to artificially intelligent computers.

Computational analysis of symbols used 4,000 years ago by a long-lost Indus Valley civilization suggests they represent a spoken language. Some frustrated linguists thought the symbols were merely pretty pictures.

"The underlying grammatical structure seems similar to what’s found in many languages," said University of Washington computer scientist Rajesh Rao.
