Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking

Hacking the Classroom: Beyond Design Thinking | Kristos Stavropoulos | Scoop.it

"Design Thinking is a great skill for students to acquire as part of their education.  But it is one process like the problem-solving model or the scientific method. As a step-by-step process, it becomes type of box.  Sometimes we need to go beyond that box; step outside of the box. This post provides an overview of design thinking, the problems with design thinking, and suggestions to hacking the world to go beyond design thinking."

Melissa Ainsworth's curator insight, June 9, 2013 6:13 AM

This website has useful information for teachers and students about design thinking and interpretation. It looks at many elements of design and how to approach design in relation to technology. This website is helpful to give teachers some stepping stones and guidance as to where to go with design and technology.

Design in Practice's curator insight, August 2, 2014 10:45 AM

Design thinking is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, conceiving original ideas, lots of experimentation, and sometimes building things by hand

United States Wants to Attract Hackers to Public Sector | NYTimes.com

United States Wants to Attract Hackers to Public Sector | NYTimes.com | Kristos Stavropoulos | Scoop.it

In the eighth grade, Arlan Jaska figured out how to write a simple script that could switch his keyboard’s Caps Lock key on and off 6,000 times a minute. When friends weren’t looking, he slipped his program onto their computers. It was all fun and games until the program spread to his middle school.

 

“They called my parents and told my dad I was hacking their computers,” Mr. Jaska, 17 years old, recalled. He was grounded and got detention. And he is just the type the Department of Homeland Security is looking for.

 

The secretary of that agency, Janet Napolitano, knows she has a problem that will only worsen. Foreign hackers have been attacking her agency’s computer systems. They have also been busy trying to siphon the nation’s wealth and steal valuable trade secrets. And they have begun probing the nation’s infrastructure — the power grid, and water and transportation systems.

 

So she needs her own hackers — 600, the agency estimates. But potential recruits with the right skills have too often been heading for business, and those who do choose government work often go to the National Security Agency, where they work on offensive digital strategies. At Homeland Security, the emphasis is on keeping hackers out, or playing defense.

Hacking at Education: TED, Technology Entrepreneurship, Uncollege, and the Hole in the Wall

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 15, 2013 4:23 AM

Both these projects — the Hole in the Wall and the Uncollege movement — claim to “hack education” on behalf of the learner. And both have been the topics of TED Talks — on the main TED stage and at the smaller TEDx spin–offs.

Mitra’s TED talks, which have been particularly successful, describe his company’s placing of computer kiosks into the slums of India. From there, street children have gained computer and English literacy skills without adult intervention.

It’s an story that Stephens nods vigorously at: the self-directed and self-motivated student can learn anything; no thanks to our testing-dominated public school curriculum; no thanks to our federally-subsidized, loan-obsessed university; but thanks to the Internet and the growing availability of open online resources -- thanks to the access and a lot of “grit.”

Tinkering knowledge sharing, or why we need to hack science - Aljazeera.com | Kristos Stavropoulos | Scoop.it

The reluctance to publish data and share knowledge openly has, however, started to attract people's attention. A general move towards openness generally referred to as "open science" has emerged, inspired from the spirit of the free and open source software (FOSS) movement. Similarly to FOSS ethics, promoting software source code to be made public, reusable and modifiable by anyone, the central theme of open science is to clearly account for methods, generated data and obtained results thus enabling a massively distributed collaboration that speeds up the pace at which science is done.
