Design Thinking, Deconstructed

Design Thinking, Deconstructed | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

At the Nueva School in Hillsborough, Calif., design thinking is built into students’ and teachers’ everyday lives. The process, which is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, building by hand, and lots of experimentation, is documented and shared among staff.

 

The infographic (click on the image to see the full PDF) was created by Kim Saxe, director of Nueva’s iLab, and one of the champions of design thinking. To learn more about the process, readWhat Design Thinking Looks Like In School,  How to Apply Design Thinking In Class, Step By Step, and our entire collection of articles about design thinking.

Adaptive eLearning - Smart Sparrow

Adaptive eLearning - Smart Sparrow | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Adaptive eLearning creates the best possible learning experience for students by emulating the talents of great educators. This is achieved by using technologies that  adapt and shape teaching to the needs of the individual student.

Each student is unique, has varying levels of knowledge, and learns differently. Our research, and that of other academics, has shown that student performance improves when online educational content is personalised.

Smart Sparrow empowers teachers with an Adaptive eLearning Platform that allows them to easily create and deploy rich, interactive, and adaptive educational content using powerful online technologies. The focus of Adaptive eLearning is to provide teachers with complete control over how the content adapts to the student. We call this Pedagogical Ownership and we think it is vital to making it an effective teaching tool.

Additionally, an Adaptive eLearning Platform provides teachers with a window into their students’ learning for the lessons they’ve created. Online analytics provide actionable insights into what students know, what misconceptions they may have, and how they are interacting with content. This feature allows teachers to continuously adapt and improve their lessons.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Is There A Visual Thinking App? Charts, Graphs, & The 1:1 Classroom

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Is There A Visual Thinking App? Charts, Graphs, & The 1:1 Classroom | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

With the advent of the iPad generation, the skills of graphicacy are taking on more importance than ever in today's classrooms. Graphicacy is the learned ability to decipher and design images, particularly around symbols, charts, and coded meanings.

Amid the national emphasis on STEM programs, charts are becoming key tools to represent visual statistics. As more and more schools migrate to 1:1 tablets, therefore, students need a foundation in reading and rendering their own optic inputs.

A 6-Step Process For Adding Gamification To Your Classroom | TeachThought

A 6-Step Process For Adding Gamification To Your Classroom | TeachThought | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Gamification is the integration of game-like mechanics into non-game “stuff.”

 

For years, schools have been gamified. Points for performance. Points accrue to earn “badges” (e.g., letter grades). Students are separated and ranked (e.g., class ranks). Winners of this “game” are celebrated (e.g., valedictorians).

 

While this approach offers tremendous potential that has yet to be tapped (uncovering the nuance of the learning process, for example), it can also be approached from a simpler point of view–added in to the instructional design process, which the following graphic from Mia MacMeekin takes a look at.

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device. 

Steve Jobs "Thinking differently" a biography by Patricia Lakin

More people are running to charity tube to post free videos and watch free videos than posting on you tube. Try posting at charity tube and you will never leave. http://www.africatube.net/ More visitors and more video views. Don't take our word for it, try it. Post one same video on youtube and put it on  http://www.africatube.net/ and return ater five hours and compare the viewers rate and decide for yourself. Create your very own group or forum and control who watch it and invite everyone to watch the video. Above all, post video in English or in any language and viewers can watch video description in their own language. Try it and let us know your experience. Above all it is absolutely free like youtube

Rahoittajan riskianalyysi ja samalla riskiarvio yrittäjälle pohdittavaksi.
1. Onko yrityksen tiimi oikea tekemään sitä mitä he ovat tekemässä?
2. Onko tuotteelle markkinoita?
3. Onko tiimillä sitä tietotaito, jota todella tarvitaan tuotteen rakentamiseen
4. Pystytkö levittäämään tuotteesi niille asiakkaille, jotka todella haluavat ostaa tuoteen....

Rahoittajalle kynnys on 1000 asiakasta tai 100 maksavaa asiakasta.

Things that arouse passion in the ID community:
- ADDIE vs non-ADDIE approaches (Agile, SAM)
- The need for formal training vs relying on informal learning
- -Articulate vs Captivate 

- PCs vs Macs (ok, that one goes beyond the ID community :))

 

And of course, there's learning styles, bunkum, or worth paying attention to at all?

As with all things, the answer usually lies in compromise (and actually understanding the principles that inform each side of the discussion), so here's Howard Gardner's take, revisiting multiple intelligences and learning styles
