6 ways the Internet of Things will develop by 2025

6 ways the Internet of Things will develop by 2025 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


For some time now, futurists have imagined an "Internet of things" where everything from vehicles to appliances are part of one big network. Two decades ago, it seemed like a fanciful idea. Today, it looks inevitable. All the pieces are in place, and some of them are already connected.


A new report from the Pew Research Center Internet Project and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center looks further ahead to 2025, and asks how things will have moved on by then. Its conclusions--summarized below--are based on responses from 2,551 people, both Internet "experts" and members of the public.

8 reasons why Experiential Learning is the future of learning

8 reasons why Experiential Learning is the future of learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
More than a hundred years ago, Hermann Ebbinghaus formulated the learning curve, which describes the relationship between memory and time. In a nutshell, it says that, during a lecture, if your absorption rate is at 100 percent on day one, there is a 50-80 percent loss of learning from the second day onward, which is reduced to a retention rate of just 2-3 percent at the end of thirty days.

This theory is even more relevant in today's world where attention spans have come down and learning sometimes is reduced to 140 characters!

[VIDEO] What is Digital Citizenship?

"Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues. Broadly, it's the guidelines for responsible, appropriate behavior when one is using technology. But specifically, it can cover anything from "netiquette" to cyberbullying; technology access and the digital divide; online safety and privacy; copyright, plagiarism, and digital law, and more. In fact, some programs that teach digital citizenship have outlined no less than nine elements that intersect to inform a well-equipped digital citizen. It's an overwhelming array of skills to be taught and topics to explore.


But while there is much talk about the importance of teaching digital citizenship in this information society, not many are sure what that really looks like. What tools are out there for teaching it? And how in the world can teachers make time in an already overcrowded curriculum? This playlist is intended to offer tools to make the case that it's critical to teach this, and then launchpad videos to seed classroom discussions once you've carved out that precious time.

Amaña2.0's curator insight, Today, 7:33 AM

La educación para la Ciudadanía Digital es la creación una comunidad de jóvenes usuarios que podrán gestionar de forma segura y concienciada toda la información y el conocimiento en Red. No todo es positivo en este nuevo entorno. Aprendizaje, colaboración, conectividad... son factores que se oponen a los problemas nacidos del uso de Internet: robo de identidad, plagio, depredadores online...

 

Para los expertos, el primer paso es desarrollar un comportamiento ético entre los alumnos, basado en la creatividad, la actividad y el gusto por la adquisición de nuevos conocimientos. Esto supone, en palabras del profesor de Harvard Howard Gardner, un desafío, que requiere de cumplir con cinco criterios para ser cumplido: identidad, propiedad, privacidad, confianza en el valor de lo producido y participación.

 

Esta es la base del nuevo Currículum Digital. Además, este nuevo modelo educativo que se propone también pretende implicar a los estudiantes sobre su Huella Digital, es decir, lograr que comprendan que todo cuanto se hace (de forma intencionada o no)  en Internet tiene unas repercusiones (positivas o dañinas). Pues son ellos quienes van a construir la Comunidad Digital del futuro.

25 practices that foster Lifelong Learning

25 practices that foster Lifelong Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it.

Lifelong learning is now recognized by educators, governing bodies, accreditation organizations, certification boards, employers, third-party payers, and the general public as one of the most important competencies a person can possess. But even if we all agree on its value, and harbor the best intentions of possessing it ourselves, it can easily escape our grasp if we approach it the wrong way.

First off–and this is what Dweck was getting at–we must believe that, at any point in time, we always have the potential to change and grow through application and experience.

APRENDIZAJE EN EL TRABAJO

APRENDIZAJE EN EL TRABAJO | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Comienzo este artículo citando a Marc Rosenberg que, en un excelente artículo publicado en Learning Solutions Magazine, defiende la tesis de que la formación estructurada resulta insuficiente para aprender en el trabajo. Puedes acceder al artículo aquí.

La formación on line, el e-learning, parecía a priori una buena alternativa para ampliar los espacios y extender los tiempos de aprendizaje. Sin embargo, el error que hemos cometido es diseñar “cursos” y, con mayor o menor acierto, adaptar el modelo tradicional a un nuevo canal. Demasiados programas formativos on-line que se convertían en “pasa-pantallas” y eso era lo que literalmente hacían los alumnos, hacer “clic” para ver la pantalla siguiente, por mucho que habláramos de interactividad y personalización. Con este modelo, es difícil mejorar una experiencia formativa presencial y, además, no es suficiente.

¡La alegría del 'error'!

¡La alegría del 'error'! | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Seríamos algo más que humanoscomo si podríamos renovar y cambiar y si es posible hacerlo sin riesgo. Pero, por desgracia esto es una contradicción en los términos. Nueva es, por tanto, nuevo, porque hay poca o ninguna experiencia, porque en cualquiera de nuestros experimentos,siempre asumimos riesgos, por lo tanto, los errores se suceden, te guste o no.

Por tanto, la siguiente cita se merece la atención, pero también quieren una organización o un individuo , que sepa y que sea innovador.

El mayor error que puede hacer en la vida es estar siempre con el miedo de cometer un error.” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

El error genera miedo con consecuencias desagradables, lo cual nos lleva, normalmente,a culpar de ello a alguien, o le ponemos cualquier excusa que nos inhiba de cualquier responsabilidad. Con un dedo extendido señalado a los colegas, lo que ha ocurrido es un accidente. Esto lleva a una incertidumbre aún mayor, se ralentiza la búsqueda de soluciones y causa muchas pérdidas de nuestras fortalezas. (debemos aprender a vivir con la incertidumbre)

La manera correcta de lidiar con el miedo y la culpa de los errores es una parte esencial de una cultura del error. Un desprejuiciado como sea posible para hacer frente a los errores, por lo tanto es también una de las principales tareas de los líderes, como el establecimiento de la cultura de comunicación adecuado que la admisión de errores y un resultado proceso de aprendizaje permite – en cualquier nivel ya sea gerente o líder de equipo.

LearnFlex LMS: Implementing user groups and communities

LearnFlex LMS: Implementing user groups and communities | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
If you’re looking to introduce new user groups into the LMS then your first step will be to determine what variations from the existing user groups will need to be setup before adding them. Will the users require their own set of courses, learn tracks and resources or will the audience for existing configuration be updated to include the new group? Will the same administration team be responsible for the new users or will additional Cohorts, Curriculum Groups and Business Units need to be setup to restrict access from the other groups? With proper planning you can have multiple user groups using the LMS with little to no overlap so if that’s the direction you plan to go then be sure to plan ahead so only the required people have access to each group.

Impacts of #MOOCs on Higher Education

Impacts of #MOOCs on Higher Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
An international group of higher education institutions—including UT Arlington, Stanford University, Hong Kong University and Davidson College—convened by learning researcher and theorist George Siemens gathered last week to explore the impacts of MOOCs on higher education (full list of participating institutions below).

The takeaway? Higher education is going digital, responding to the architecture of knowledge in a digital age, and MOOCs, while heavily criticized, have proven a much-needed catalyst for the development of progressive programs that respond to the changing world.

After sharing challenges, key innovations and general impacts, we were collectively awed by our similarities. Sure, Harvard and Stanford have larger budgets and teams, and the Texas system is, well, a system, while Davidson College enrolls a little under 2,000 students; yet, these fundamentally different institutions voiced similar challenges in their transitions to digital environments.

[PDF] Modern Policy for Modern Learners

[PDF] Modern Policy for Modern Learners | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The convergence of key trends across technology, education and communications policy presents the United States with an unprecedented opportunity to develop a plan to leverage 21st century technologies and broadband Internet platforms to enhance educational opportunities, reduce disparities and connect students to the new world of boundless online content and limitless possibilities.


The purpose of this report is to describe the opportunities for expanded access to a high-quality education created by high-access, connected learning environments. Situated against the backdrop of the shifting policy environment around communications legislation, this discussion aims to bring our perspective as strong advocates for innovation in teaching and learning to bear on key policy decisions. Specifically, in order to build the case for improved connectivity and provide intellectual support for modernizing the Federal Communications Act, we explore the impact of the Internet on education, describe why connectivity matters and offer recommendations for building a policy environment reflects the convergence of education with communications policy.

[VIDEO] Personalizar aprendizaje (Javier Touron)

Este es el título del webinar que ayer tuvimos en la Comunidad Eduland, que te invito a conocer, pues se está moviendo en un terreno de vanguardia que todo educador debería conocer.

Os dejo el vídeo que se ofreció a los participantes y que sirvió para realizar una animada discusión online en tiempo real con los participantes, en el explico lo que entiendo que es la revolución a la que estamos abocados en la educación ahora mismo. Este modelo que se propugna conformará una escuela basada en el alumno, que tendrá como objetivo el desarrollo del talento de cada escolar de manera óptima. Una escuela, en suma, que cumpla con lo que dicta la ley y el sentido común. Los niños más capaces y sus familias lo agradecerán, el país y el desarrollo social lo exigirán.
Este vídeo y otros de anteriores webinars pueden accederse desde el canal de Youtube de Eduland.

The post-hierarchical organization

The post-hierarchical organization | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The way we manage our organizations is largely ineffective for the complex challenges we face, whether driven by the environment, demographics, economics, or politics.

Hierarchies assume that management knows best and that the higher up the hierarchy, the more competent and knowledgeable that person is. But hierarchies are merely centralized networks. They work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. Hierarchies are good for command and control. They are handy to get things done in small groups. But hierarchies are rather useless to create, innovate, or change. Hierarchies are ineffective when things get complex.

Algo de Web 3.0 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Web 3.0 es un neologismo que se utiliza para describir la evolución del uso y la interacción en la red a través de diferentes caminos. Ello incluye, la transformación de la red en una base de datos, un movimiento hacia hacer los contenidos accesibles por múltiples aplicaciones non-browser, el empuje de las tecnologías de inteligencia artificial, la web semántica, la Web Geoespacial, o la Web 3D. Frecuentemente es utilizado por el mercado para promocionar las mejoras respecto a la Web 2.0. El término Web 3.0 apareció por primera vez en 2006 en un artículo de Jeffrey Zeldman, crítico de la Web 2.0 y asociado a tecnologías como Ajax. Actualmente existe un debate considerable en torno a lo que significa Web 3.0, y cual es la definición acertada.

¿Son los aprendizajes informales ya la alternativa? (1)

¿Son los aprendizajes informales ya la alternativa? (1) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Los aprendizajes informales no los ha inventado nadie -¡como es obvio!-. Siempre han estado presentes en las organizaciones convirtiéndose en uno de los itinerarios más potentes de aprendizaje. Es un hecho probado y no insistiremos en ello.
Lo que se nos plantea, delante de esta realidad, son diferentes itinerarios. Una postura muy extrema podría defender que dado el alto nivel de autonomía de la que gozan ya los profesionales fruto, entre otros, de la potenciación que ha supuesto el disponer de contenidos y conexiones ilimitadas (Internet y la tecnología móvil), todo lo demás es obsoleto. Incluyendo, en esta obsolescencia, el aula clásica y la asistencia a cursos reglados. No es nuestra postura. Y, por tanto, respondiendo a la pregunta del título, no van a ser los aprendizaje informales (aunque estén muy potenciados, como explicaremos después) la alternativa a la formación tradicional. A veces, las urgencias organizativas podrían hacer pensar que puede desaparecer (o reducirse) este tipo de formación. Son itinerarios compatibles y complementarios.

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses?

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Very often, organizations find that there are no takers for their eLearning courses. Why? We need to first understand who the target users of eLearning courses are. We called them trainees, learners, and end-users – all these terms indicate receptors of information, knowledge or skills. It means there is a giver of knowledge and a receptor of knowledge. The giver of knowledge is calling the shots. This is something like the sellers’ market in the early industrial age. Markets have witnessed changes, since then, and the same is true for the learning and training domain as well. We need to re-look at the way we see our learners. They are no longer at the mercy of their trainer. They have a variety of options before them to gain knowledge. So, how do you ensure they buy your eLearning courses (buy in the sense not literally, but investing time to complete your eLearning courses)?

Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can use these animations to create and share tutorials, presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:
