GPS, Mobile Devices And The Dumbing of America | alex chaucer | Future Edtech | Scoop.it

By using GPS and over-relying on the smart phone in our pocket, are we unconsciously sacrificing our most valuable resource that we have as humans: our ability to think? If so, how do we know, and what impact will it have on society if we don't act?

PARTICIPATORY SENSING 1/4 – the data-citizen driven city | Future Edtech | Scoop.it

"The data-citizen driven city" project developed by Sara Alvarellos, César García, Jorge Medal and Sara Thomson on September 2011. With this project, produced by a multidisciplinary team consisting of an IT System Administrator, an Industrial Designer, an Artist and an Architect, I really started considering how data can empower communities and catalyze social change.

Tipping point... On the technology adoption curve we are shifting from the Early Majority to the Late Majority, and will quickly get to 75-85% of the population. Appears to be the steepest part of the technology adoption curve.
