Open university: Joi Ito plans a radical reinvention of MIT's Media Lab (Wired UK)

Open university: Joi Ito plans a radical reinvention of MIT's Media Lab (Wired UK) | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

By David Rowan

Joi Ito plans a radical reinvention of MIT’s Media Lab –-

Joi Ito, 46-year-old director of MIT's Media Lab since last September, has just selected the faculty's newest outpost: the troubled streets of downtown Detroit. "I was in a rough neighbourhood there yesterday, where there are miles and miles of bombed out buildings, and it just blows your mind to see a bunch of kids building urban farms," he says back in his office in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "They have no streetlights. If you connect a streetlight to the grid, it gets controlled by the city and regulated. So they're thinking, how can we create solar-powered low-cost streetlights, as that will lower crime? They have a maker space in a church, a place where the kids can learn how to build a computer, a bike shop where they can learn how to do repairs. The kid who runs this place, Jeff Sturges, is awesome.We're sending a bunch of Media Lab people to Detroit to work with local innovators already doing stuff on the ground."

MITx and the classroom of tomorrow - The Tech

MITx and the classroom of tomorrow - The Tech | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In recent weeks, there has been much energy and enthusiasm about both MITx and its multi-institutional counter part edX. Listening to the debate over how MITx can be integrated into the residential experience, I am impressed by how much thought all affected parties have invested. We as a community are at a crossroads. We have been presented with an opportunity to substantially change what it means to receive a college education. This possibility excites me, but for others it may seem slightly frightening. Many people are concerned about what we may lose in the process of integrating online education into our current system. While these concerns are certainly valid, I am still optimistic. Rather than focus on how MITx might harm, I focus on how it can transform. What follows is my vision of how this transformation might play out.

La UNED lanza una plataforma ‘online’ con la colaboración del MIT: UnX versión hispana de EdX

La UNED lanza una plataforma ‘online’ con la colaboración del MIT: UnX versión hispana de EdX | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Inventar aplicaciones para teléfonos móviles está casi al alcance de cualquiera. Google lanzó a finales de 2010 una plataforma para crearlas dentro de su sistema operativo, Android. Aquel programa, ‘App Inventor’, forma parte del curriculum del Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) y se convertirá en unas semanas en el primer curso gratuito que ofrece la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) a través de internet. El lanzamiento, fruto de varios meses de colaboración entre las dos instituciones, supone la creación de UnX, la nueva plataforma de cursos online de la universidad española, y permitirá al MIT dar el salto a la oferta de contenidos para España y América Latina.
