Launching new framework: The Future of Work | Trends in the Living Networks

Launching new framework: The Future of Work | Trends in the Living Networks | Educational Technology for Local Knowledge | Scoop.it

When I'm not thinking just about education, ed tech, connected learning, parenting, or other related issues, I do like to pay attention to other areas of human activity.  I browse business magazines, read up on advancements in science and medicine, follow politics & policy-making, and love to read thoughts on where we may be headed as a society.  I enjoy reading the thoughts of "futurists"...

 

I usually find that paying attention to all of those other things gives me greater insight into where education, learning, and "schooling" as a place/thing/experience may be headed.  Very often there is a strong connection -- although education tends to lag behind...

 

So I found this interesting and as I looked over the framework presented in the diagram, I really had a hard time finding anything listed that doesn't also impact the future of educaiton, learning and the place/thing/experience that we refer to as "school."

 

These are the kinds of things that I think all educators should be paying attention to in order to be more relevant to current and future students.

"Google Earth was one of the very first pieces of software that I began to create educational resources with. As I put it in one of my first ever blog posts 5 years ago: ”This app won me over straight away.” The engaging environment really struck a chord with me and I remember fondly my first forays into using it to support learning. It has developed so much over the years...."
