Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, November 15, 2014 12:20 PM

There are those who believe that trends in educational technology are unreasonably influenced by the tech companies themselves. That may be true. Perhaps educators don't know enough about the what and why behind technology development and believe there is little choice. Now that Google is becoming increasingly prominent in classrooms, will we find ourselves simply following Google's lead or will we more engaged in defining needs and expectations for technological developments?

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist" | Innovation | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea.

Mr. Ito prompted some thinking and reflection on my part, and that prompted a blog post:

http://www.irreverent-learning.com/2014/11/addressing-present-planning-for-future.html. You should watch and listen to the TED talk. I think some of his ideas are quite interesting and should warrant some conversation. . . and action.

MIT's Crazy Materials Could Make for Self-Assembling Ikea Furniture

MIT's Crazy Materials Could Make for Self-Assembling Ikea Furniture | Innovation | Scoop.it
“As its name suggests, the Self-Assembly Lab focuses on making things that can, well, self-assemble. It has created a series of small wood planks, for instance, that fold into a toy elephants when exposed to moisture. Tibbets and collaborators Christophe Guberan and Erik Demaine are working on clothing that could morph in response to the weather. In the future, the Lab’s research could make way for Ikea furniture that assembles itself with a splash of water—no Allen wrench required.”
