Collaboration in Augmented Reality

Collaboration in Augmented Reality | Designing for Learning | Scoop.it
AR systems can be used to create unique collaborative experiences. For example, co-located users can see shared 3D virtual objects that they interact with, or a user can annotate the live video view of a remote worker, enabling them to collaborate at a distance. The overall goal is to augment the face-to-face collaborative experience, or to enable remote people to feel that they are virtually co-located.

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 2016 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.

"Design thinking" can prepare graduates for the real working world

"Design thinking" can prepare graduates for the real working world | Designing for Learning | Scoop.it
At first glance, it looks as though the group of young adults is building Lego. But these are actually students at the University of Cape Town’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design Thinking, and they’re using the colourful blocks to design a prototype. It represents policy reform ideas around transitioning from informal to formal economies. It’s a complex system represented with very basic materials.

This is design thinking in action: human-centred, problem solving activities that ground design thinking in practice. It helps students to understand and innovatively solve challenges.

Design thinking can be used very successfully as an academic programme that goes beyond traditional university practices. It allows universities to prepare a more resilient, adaptive student cohort. These graduates are more competent to enter economies that are constantly changing. This is particularly important when higher education institutions are training students for jobs that might not yet exist or that might have changed or become redundant by the time they graduate.

University of Michigan Turns Courses Into Games (EdSurge News)

University of Michigan Turns Courses Into Games (EdSurge News) | Designing for Learning | Scoop.it
“School is a game,” says Barry Fishman, University of Michigan professor of education and information. But unlike Monopoly or Taboo, Fishman believes the plays and strategies in higher education courses are often poorly designed. He and his colleagues at U-M’s Gameful Learning Lab are working together to incorporate essential elements of well-designed games into courses.

The lab has built an LMS called GradeCraft that allows faculty to structure and deliver courses like a game. “We take what we know about design principles for good games and apply those to the learning environment and make it more engaging so that students persist in the challenge of learning,” explains lab director Rachel Niemer.

The Gameful Learning Lab is one of three, large-scale labs supported under a new enterprise at the university called Academic Innovation, currently made up of 66 initiatives “charged with developing a culture of innovation in learning” that can bring about “personalized, engaged and lifelong” learning experiences.

What is Design Thinking and Why Is It So Popular?

Design Thinking is not an exclusive property of designers—all great innovators in literature, art, music, science, engineering, and business have practiced it. So, why call it Design Thinking? What’s special about Design Thinking is that designers’ work processes can help us systematically extract, teach, learn and apply these human-centred techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way — in our designs, in our businesses, in our countries, in our lives.

Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung, and GE, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach and Design Thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including d.school, Stanford, Harvard and MIT. But do you know what Design Thinking is? And why it’s so popular? Here we’ll cut to the chase and tell you what it is and why it’s so popular.

Digital tools and the theory about using them in teaching and learning are linked to the practical implications (praxis and pedagogy) of what that means and does not mean.
