As soon as we all got smartphones, the board game as we know it died. We might still enjoy Scrabble, but it will probably be called Words with Friends, played with an acquaintance or a stranger miles away.
"Hermann Ebbinghaus published a landmark book in 1885, Uber das Gedachtis (On Memory), translated into English in 1913. In this he put the study of memory on a sure, scientific footing using rigorous experiments, exploring retention and the effects of sequencing and patterns of practice on memory. Indeed, most subsequent research into learning and memory has been footnotes to his work."
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal on teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in the classroom.
"Ignatius was a soldier turned priest who formed the Jesuits, or Society of Jesus, a missionary order driven by a military-type zeal to spread the Catholic faith. Education was to be their primary and most successful weapon. Jesuit education is apostolic and the order demanded missionary and educational service in whatever part of the world they were sent. This is what drove Jesuit priests into many remote lands and ever remoter locations – the demand to defend the faith and, above all make converts. The Jesuits are still active with nearly 40,000 in the order and educational activities in 112 countries."
"Like Plato and Aristotle, Confucius had his own school, started in 552BC. Despite a period of exile, like Freire, he became a very influential official and adviser but it was through his four texts, especially The Analects, that he has had an immense and constant influence on education in the China and the East over an astonishing 2500 years."
"As an ordained priest Illich had worked with the poor in Peurto Rico but at 43 resigned from the Catholic Church because of what he saw as its institutional dominance and flaws. It was this that led to a similar evaluation of the ‘new Church’ schooling. This led to his seminal text Deschooling Society’ but this was not his title bt the title applied by his publisher. In fact it is misleading as he doesn’t argues not for the abolition of schools but their disestablishment, the separation of school and state, just as the Church and State were separated in the US."

"Okay, you say, but I have no idea how to make real stuff. That’s where Wired Design comes in. Today, you don’t need an arc welder or VC funding. You just need an idea. You’ve got ideas, right? Oh, and possibly some of today’s tools, apps, hardware, and software that make being a designer in everyday life possible."
"In my view, Google’s philosophy for computational modeling curriculum development employs four ideas: open, transparent, community-driven, and peer-reviewed. Their plan is to provide a venue for curriculum materials to be posted, commented on, modified and reposted. Phil is developing some of the initial materials to jump-start the efforts of this community of users (I plan to contribute when and where possible). In this way, Google follows the commitment to transparent development which has made the open-source community so successful."
"Feedback is seen as a key feature of good teaching, yet precise research and theory is hard to find. Black and Wiliam published a well-researched and influential paper, Inside the Black Box, that recommended methods of feedback, making it more focused and potent. William claims that this is the sweet spot in improving productivity in schools, even beyond lower class sizes."
"What is education for? This key question still elicits puzzled looks, ill-formed answers, even platitudes, from students, parents, policy makers and even learning professionals. Few can fully articulate the purpose of education. John White has clear views on the subject that escapes the usual formulations to focus on the idea of autonomy. A product of London’s Institute of Education, he asks what we should do in a world where the old certainties of religion and a job for life are gone. How should we define education in a more liberal, complex, fragmented and technological world?"
