Case in point: My group has just released a new preprint (get it here) that shows how the WiFi information routinely collected by your smartphone can easily be converted to precise information about your location. WiFi routers reveal where you live, work, and spend your leisure time.

While your phone may have told you that WiFi helps “improve location accuracy”, it may come as a surprise that:

 

A majority of apps in the store have access to the list of routers around you (scanned every 20 seconds).Your Android smartphone by default scans for WiFi routers even if you disable WiFi.

The Science (and Practice) of Creativity

The Science (and Practice) of Creativity | Just Open Education or MOOCs? | Scoop.it
"Creativity isn't about music and art; it is an attitude to life, one that everybody needs," wrote the University of Winchester's Professor Guy Claxton in the lead-up to the 2014 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) dedicated to creativity and education. "It is a composite of habits of mind which include curiosity, skepticism, imagination, determination, craftsmanship, collaboration, and self-evaluation."

Sounds like the perfect skill set for equipping young people to navigate an increasingly complex and unpredictable world. Encouragingly, there's plenty of evidence -- from both research and practice -- that most of the above can be taught in the classroom. In fact, innovation and education experts agree that creativity can fit perfectly into any learning system.

But before it can be incorporated broadly in curriculum, it must first be understood.

Creativity fosters teaching and learning.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, March 31, 2015 6:02 PM

Creativity has always been what has set America apart from other nations.  The ability of our population to imagine new solutions to everyday problems and create innovations has kept America as a world leader and given us the economic advantage.  many nations have looked at our education system and wondered how they could nurture this ability in their children.  As a gifted educator, teaching creativity has always been our focus.  Unfortunately, in these days of standardized testing, which lead to standardized curriculum and schools, we are losing our creative advantage.  Creativity is a key for ALL our children.  our children enter school with an active imagination and a natural ability for creative thinking.  We must understand creativity and how we can nurture it in our classrooms and schools.

It's Time for Social and Emotional Learning for All

It's Time for Social and Emotional Learning for All | Just Open Education or MOOCs? | Scoop.it

Over the last decade, increased attention has been paid to the social and emotional learning (SEL) needs of children. This area of learning is necessary and essential to address -- for children and adults.

 

It's time that schools take responsibility for meeting the entire range of learning needs that educators have -- the need to use new technologies, to understand and implement new standards, to use new assessment strategies, and their needs to attend to their own social and emotional learning.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Just Open Education or MOOCs? | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.
