How online education can create a 'global classroom'

How online education can create a 'global classroom' | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Around the world, and in developing nations especially, there is an overwhelming demand for higher education.

There is a reason that so many non-Western people are involved in online education. It is seen to have real value to people with limited access to brick and mortar institutions. Both can still fill important niches, but we are evolving and that is equally important.

The Connection Economy – The One to Rule Them All

The Connection Economy – The One to Rule Them All | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Over the course of the last few years, and with the emergence (AND convergence) of social networking tools for business, cloud computing,big data and social analytics (amongst several other buzzwords and hyped concepts), we are starting to see that growing trend of shaping up one other key concept from today’s business world: our own economy.

 

It seems to be it’s starting to take control of our collective mindset, of our conversations, of our interests and attention, to the point where we are beginning to have no more time than to talk about just that: economy. And that’s understandable, seeing the current financial econoclypse we are going through, and still with plenty more to come! But what if there would be something else? What would happen if all of a sudden we would be able to switch from our traditional concept of economy into something much more meaningful, purposeful, refreshing and rather inspiring altogether?

 

How about if we would start focusing quite a lot more on the Connection Economy instead, to eventually have a bigger impact beyond just focusing on the money, the power and the greed?

The Internet is without a doubt one of the best resources available to us. Unfortunately it’s also extremely dangerous if you aren’t aware of who and what lurks behind the scenes. Everyone should know how to be safe when surfing the web, but internet safety tips and tricks are spread out all over the web without a go-to resource.

This is an interesting article. I read Nicholas Carr's book and was depressed afterward.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 19, 2013 12:37 AM

"Is technology making us stupid—or smarter than we’ve ever been? Author Nicholas Carr memorably made the case for the former in his 2010 book The Shallows: What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains. This fall we’ll have a rejoinder of sorts from writer Clive Thompson, with his book Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds For The Better.

My own take: technology can make us smarter or stupider, and we need to develop a set of principles to guide our everyday behavior, making sure that tech is improving and not impeding our mental processes. Today I want to propose one such principle, in response to the important question: What kind of information do we need to have stored in our heads, and what kind can we leave “in the cloud,” to be accessed as necessary?"

Knowledge can either supplement or detract from inspiration. It really boils down to perspective.


Read, write, explore and take it all in, but then remember to give yourself some time to let all of it manifest, and savor all of the new information you’ve received before you move on to acquiring more.

Marisol Araya Fonseca's curator insight, July 27, 2014 6:51 PM

For sure, there are some teachers still using resources and teaching techniques that were used two centuries.  They need to realize that they are now teaching an audience that belongs to the 21st Century.

We need to do more than rethink the structure. We need to ask: "What structure works best to adapt as we move forward? What is school for? Is school antiquated and outdated?" We cannot be lulled into just thinking of today. That is part of the present problem and thinking.
