The Internet of Things: Your worst nightmare | ICT | eSkills | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
Is life really going to be easier when you can’t use your toothbrush because it’s lost its Internet connection?

 

My problems started with an all-too-common occurrence: My Wi-Fi router burned out and I had to replace it. This happens regularly enough that I keep another router as backup. I turned it on, then connected it to my cable modem and Sonos bridge for wireless music streaming. I was feeling smug — I used the same SSID and password as the previous one, figuring that all the devices would automatically connect to it.

 

Ah, if life in the IoT age were only so simple.

Despite well-founded concerns around corporate and government surveillance when using social media platforms, there are nevertheless a number of unique opportunities that they provide.

In the first part of a wide-ranging, seven-part discussion about Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer’s new book, “They Know Everything About You,” Scheer says the U.S. government and private industry have teamed up to turn the Internet into a massive machine for simultaneously selling to and spying on Americans.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

" And what I came to realize then: that this internet—and I’m not a Luddite. I have an internet publication. I did—my first year in graduate school, I worked on an IBM computer that was in a warehouse, had less power than my smart phone does now. I studied engineering originally in college. I like technology. I’m an early adopter for every gadget. And I do applaud the internet as a great educational tool. We used to talk about having to learn Esperanto or some artificial language to talk internationally. Now with the internet we have instant translation. At Truthdig we put up a Hedges article, and somebody in Shanghai can see it at night. Someone in Shanghai has just read it. Someone in Dublin has just read it. It’s been translated automatically and so forth. So I applaud the internet as a great way-I used to be as a teacher—I teach at the USC, the University of Southern California. If I get a kid interested in something, in the old days they’d have to go to a major library in a major city to read something about what was Watergate or what was this. Now they get online and in a couple of hours they know more than their parents do about Watergate or any other subject, you know, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, or any other such thing. So I love the internet."

What is an educated person? - The Daily Texan | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
As students and faculty of a renowned University, must remember the importance of education
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

"The educated person is self-reflective and self-aware. The educated person knows many things, of course, but she recognizes there are many things she does not know. To be educated is to be humbled by the enormity of the world and the limits of even the most talented individual.

The “universal” root of “university” is the recognition of how enormous the world and its elements are. The educated person does not think he can master everything, or even a fraction of it. He seeks to make some sense of the enormity, to chart worthwhile pathways and to find meaning that gives the journey enduring value."

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Sir Ken ROBINSON

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Sir Ken ROBINSON | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield.

 

Why not apply the process to education? 

 

Robinson distills his solution of so-called "organic education" into four key principles:


Health: Promoting the development and well-being of the whole student, intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.

Ecology: Recognizing the vital interdependence of all of these aspects of development, within each student and the community as a whole.

Fairness: Cultivating the individual talents and potential of all students, whatever their circumstances and respects the roles and responsibilities of those who work with them.

Care: Creating optimum conditions for students' development, based on compassion, experience, and practical wisdom.

This seems like such a more humane way to see students and the educational process!

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.

" Does investing in presence and community, the two aspects key for both social media and online teaching success, translate to success in residential teaching? Is someone who is good at social media also more likely to be good in a physical classroom? Possibly, but not always. There are perfomative elements to classroom teaching (particularly lecturing) that do not translate well into the social media or online teaching environments. Someone who is really good at social media or online teaching is someone who is committed to being part of a larger conversation."
