Pokémon Go isn’t a fad. It’s a beginning.

Pokémon Go isn’t a fad. It’s a beginning. | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY |
Augmented reality begins with Pokémon. It begins as a toy. But it won’t remain a toy. It’s going to become an industry, a constant, a coping mechanism, a way of life. It will change how we spend our time, how we compete for status, how we interact with our loved ones. It will change the behaviors we think of as normal — already we’re seeing Pokémon Go run into racism; it won’t be long until AR cuts across other fault lines in our society.

Read the article. Pokemon GO is more than a game, the start of a new era where virtual moves into physical world more and more.


Also read "The brilliant mechanisms of pokemon GO" to understand why this is transformative 


Plus it gives new meaning to "kids go play outside" ;-)

The leaked New York Times memo of less than a week ago is making the round on the Internet, as it touches upon many of the key issues and opportunities any news journalism operation is facing today.

From my personal viewpoint the most interesting aspect of this lengthy 97-page memo is how much curation, news and content curation specifically, are part of the future view being described in it.

Since, even trying read the in-depth curated version of the leaked NY report done by the excellent Nieman Lab it may take you in excess of 30 minutes, I have extracted and highlighted here below only the points that are specifically relevant to curators and to anyone researching the future of content curation within the context of news and journalism.

Here, six key points to pay strong attention to:

  1. ...resurfacing archival content. The report cites this passage: "“We can be both a daily newsletter and a library — offering news every day, as well as providing context, relevance and timeless works of journalism.” 

  2. ...restructuring arts and culture stories that remain relevant long after they are initially published into guides for readers.

  3.  ...consider tools to make it easier for journalists, and maybe even readers, to create collections and repackage the content.

  4.  allow readers to easily follow certain topics or columnists.

  5. better tagging of the info and content being published.

  6. focus on the less glamorous work of creating tools, templates and permanent fixes that cumulatively can have a bigger impact by saving our digital journalists time and elevating the whole report.
