This is good news for my fellow Master's students. David Lankes would probably call them...NEW LIBRARIANS...
Alexina's curator insight, October 19, 2013 1:32 PM

There is an greatly increased demand for trained librarians with knowledge about digital libraries, ebooks, creating physical and digital archives. Today's and tomorrow's librarians have to be part techie. Being a librarian does NOT mean you only work for a library. Any organization that needs to organize information and present it digitally is a prime career location for librarians with the right skills. Two of the three American Library Association (ALA) accredited master degree programs in California teach these skills. My alma mater, San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science <http://www.ala.org/cfapps/lisdir/listing.cfm?id=1408&gt;, which has totally online programs, is in the forefront of teaching both technical skills needed and traditional librarian skills. The infographic was created for the very new University of Southern California's online Master of Manaagement in Library and Information Science http://librarysciencedegree.usc.edu/

Blended and Hybrid Environments are Driving the New Global Movement in Education | #ModernEDU | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever. For this reason, schools must create opportunities for students to engage in higher level thinking skills and experience 21st century skills while using technology.

Stephen Hawking: "I Am Convinced That Humans Need to Leave Earth"

Stephen Hawking: "I Am Convinced That Humans Need to Leave Earth" | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Back in May, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking made yet another doomsday prediction. He said that humanity has 100 years left on Earth, which knocked 900 years off the prediction he made in November 2016, which had given humanity 1,000 years left.

With his new estimate, Hawking suggested the only way to prolong humanity's existence is for us to find a new home, on another planet.

Speaking at the Starmus Festival in Trondheim, Norway on Tuesday, Hawking reiterated his point: "If humanity is to continue for another million years, our future lies in boldly going where no one else has gone before," he explained, according to the BBC.

Specifically, Hawking said that we should aim for another Moon landing by 2020, and work to build a lunar base in the next 30 years - projects that could help prepare us to send human beings to Mars by 2025.

Open educational resources (OER) are found in the public domain and can be used for free for teaching, learning, research, and other educational purposes. These materials can be retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These “5R permissions” of OER allow you to not only access the materials and resources free of charge, but also to make them even better. Sounds good, right?

The Age of AI: How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Organizations via @altimeter

The Age of AI: How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Organizations via @altimeter | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

This report lays out the current state of AI for business, describes primary and emerging use cases, and states the risks, opportunities and organizational considerations that businesses are facing. It concludes with recommendations for companies thinking about applying AI to their own organizations, and a look at some of the business, legal and technical trends that are likely to shape the future.

Key Findings

When it comes to use cases, narrow and clear is better than new and shiny. Some of the most promising uses of AI today are highly specialized and highly vertical — from farming, to self-driving cars, to predictive analytics and precision medicine. In many cases, the most successful deployments will identify buying signals and churn signals and automate complex processes.AI will become a forcing function for an organizational data strategy. AI learns from vast amounts of data. Clean, accessible data is the foundation upon which successful AI is built. This means that data availability and accessibility should be early considerations when determining where to build, and where not to build, AI into systems.Ultimately, the opportunity (and risk) of systems based on machine learning is in their ability to sense, communicate, learn, act and adapt over time, and to connect with other systems.  It’s not just about devices that will play a song or order tickets to a concert.Governance, privacy, ethics, and trust are critical to the customer experience. Even with a relatively “narrow” AI, it’s important to understand that enabling machines to learn and act based on data and past experience has significant implications. It’s critical to scenario plan for AI deployments — not only for the legal and regulatory reasons, but to protect and enhance the customer experience.

The Missing Link in Educational Technology

The Missing Link in Educational Technology | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
But we need someone (or several someones) in the gap. This is the missing link. You don't have to call it 'Informatics'. You could call it something like 'Educational technology coordinator', or something more creative. The key is to have these skill sets on your team.

This will allow your IT department to:

Create a platform that is 'open for academic innovation' 
Create a culture of experimentation. 
Create opportunities for teachers to try things, and share their findings. 
Move security and the complexity of managing data, applications, workflow, reporting, etc. into the network. 
Get the computer out of the equation and focus on helping your teachers develop the skills, competencies, literacies and knowledge today's learners need.
If you don't, there is the strong possibility that the IT department will be relegated to a maintenance function - keeping the services running at the lowest possible cost, but not called on for innovative ideas or having a relevant voice in the organization.

Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, May 23, 12:28 PM
Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age George Siemens
Behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism are the three broad learning theories most often utilized in the creation of instructional environments. These theories, however, were developed in a time when learning was not impacted through technology. Over the last twenty years, technology has reorganized how we live, how we communicate, and how we learn. Learning needs and theories that describe learning principles and processes, should be reflective of underlying social environments. Vaill emphasizes that “learning must be a way of being – an ongoing set of attitudes and actions by individuals and groups that they employ to try to keep abreast of the surprising, novel, messy, obtrusive, recurring events…” (1996, p.42). Learners as little as forty years ago would complete the required schooling and enter a career that would often last a lifetime. Information development was slow. The life of knowledge was measured in decades. Today, these foundational principles have been altered. Knowledge is growing exponentially. In many fields the life of knowledge is now measured in months and years. Gonzalez (2004) describes the challenges of rapidly diminishing knowledge life: “One of the most persuasive factors is the shrinking half-life of knowledge. The “half-life of knowledge” is the time span from when knowledge is gained to when it becomes obsolete. Half of what is known today was not known 10 years ago. The amount of knowledge in the world has doubled in the past 10 years and is doubling every 18 months according to the American Society of Training and Documentation (ASTD). To combat the shrinking half-life of knowledge, organizations have been forced to develop new methods of deploying instruction.” Some significant trends in learning:  Many learners will move into a variety of different, possibly unrelated fields over the course of their lifetime.  Informal learning is a significant aspect of our learning experience. Formal education no longer comprises the majority of our learning. Learning now occurs in a variety of ways – through communities of practice, personal networks, and through completion of work-related tasks.  Learning is a continual process, lasting for a lifetime. Learning and work related activities are no longer separate. In many situations, they are the same.  Technology is altering (rewiring) our brains. The tools we use define and shape our thinking.  The organization and the individual are both learning organisms. Increased attention to knowledge management highlights the need for a theory that attempts to explain the link between individual and organizational learning.  Many of the processes previously handled by learning theories (especially in cognitive information processing) can now be off-loaded to, or supported by, technology.  Know-how and know-what is being supplemented with know-where (the understanding of where to find knowledge needed).
