What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital?

What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital? | future school | Scoop.it

A few years ago, a World Bank study highlighted the fact that there simply aren't enough textbooks for most students in Africa, and what is available is too expensive. In response to this reality, some people at the World Bank have been exploring various options for addressing the 'textbook gap', including initiatives investigating the potential cost-effectiveness of 'e-books' for African students.

Learning with 'e's: Digital age learning

Learning with 'e's: Digital age learning | future school | Scoop.it

Many of us assume flâneur-like trajectories when we traverse our way across cyberspace, clicking through hyperlinks, sometimes happening by chance upon pages that interest us, and where serendipitous learning ultimately occurs. Heutagogic learning is essentially self directed and autodidactic, and at its most informal, may involve sense-making of the digital landscape by wandering seemingly aimlessly around it. But there is still a self-determined purpose underlying the actions of the learner.

Why Digital Learning Will Liberate Teachers - Forbes

Why Digital Learning Will Liberate Teachers - Forbes | future school | Scoop.it

I spend a lot of time writing about how digital learning can transform our education system into a student-centric one. In my last blog, I wrote about why parents—of all stripes—matter for digital learning and make it fundamentally different from past “reform” movements. Digital learning should similarly be a game changer for teachers.

Teachers will be critical to our nation’s future in a world of digital learning. Of course, teachers’ jobs will also be quite different from the way they look today—and if we do this right, they should not just be different, but they should also be a whole lot better, as it liberates them in many exciting ways.

Learnlets » May Big Q: Workplace Learning Technology 2015

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question of the Month for May is “What will workplace learning technology look like in 2015?” This is a tough question for me, because I tend to see what could be the workplace tech if we really took advantage of the opportunities. Consequently, my predictions tend to be optimistic, as the real world has a way of not moving near as fast as one could wish. Still, I actually prefer to think on what could be the possibilities, as it’s more inspiring. Maybe I’ll answer both.

Sometimes I find myself in conversations about what the future generation will mean for businesses, and more specifically the ways in which HR may need to respond to the impending subsidence of the baby boomers in preparation for the tsunami of GenY+-ers. There’s some generalised anxiety about it, but very little in the way of specifics. But from what I’ve read* and observed there are real trends – some good, some bad – that would be worth thinking about. The biggest single trend is that GenY+ are active participants entering a world largely structured around assumptions that they will be passive recipients. By way of disclaimer, I think it is sometimes hard to distinguish the kind of commentary on ‘turbulent youth’ that has been commonplace since Plato from GenY+ characteristics – but I still think the following are worth consideration:

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use | future school | Scoop.it

As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes.

 

The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations.

 

Here’s a look at over 30 content curation tools.....

Schools of the Future May Not Be Actual Buildings at All | David Porter

Schools of the Future May Not Be Actual Buildings at All | David Porter | future school | Scoop.it

The notion that every person learns, retains, applies in the same way at the same rate, no longer holds water. Extending the use of costly school buildings for the community into evenings, weekends and holidays barely scratches the surface. The fundamental question is: does the next decade need automatic new schools?

Learning with 'e's: End of the screen age?

Learning with 'e's: End of the screen age? | future school | Scoop.it

In-view vision, whether in visor, heads-up, or projector form, would have the capability to lock into and exploit the full potential of applications such as augmented and mixed reality, where the onboard processor can generate and superimpose information about objects or people to give the viewer instant information about what or who they are looking at. This would be an important step forward for augmented reality tools, which currently rely largely on mobile phone cameras to function. A look at the TED video of Patti Maes and Pranav Mistry's Sixth Sense wearable technology may give you a sense of how this can be achieved and the positive (and possibly negative) effects that may emerge with this ambient approach to interaction with the environment.

Learning with 'e's: The future is not here ... yet | future school | Scoop.it

I seem to be spending a lot of time lately travelling around talking about 'the future'. Does this make me a futurologist or some kind of prophet? No - I'm just one more person who wants to know what might influence my professional life and my students' learning over the next year or two. We are all interested in the future, more or less. But trying to predict the future is not something I would recommend, because no-one really knows what tomorrow will bring. If we did, most of us probably wouldn't dare stepping outside our homes. Well, here's me in an interview with a German Human Resources magazine, in the run up to a keynote speech I'm giving in Cologne, Germany in September. I speculate on what I see happening around me now, and how the trends might evolve in the coming months....
