Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, September 14, 2:14 AM

Prima bondige analyse van 'engagement' van deelnemers aan een MOOC. Lerenden gebruiken een MOOC als een buffet. De "rule if thirds" is van toepassing op MOOCs.

Extend Limits - Tien voorspellingen voor 2025 | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Voorspelling van multinationals zijn interessant, omdat ze een leidraad voor wetenschap en overheid kunnen vormen. Thomson Reuters deed tien voorspellingen voor 2025.

Dementie onder controle: door meer begrip van erfelijkheid en DNA structuren kunnen we dementie onder controle houden.De zon is de meest gebruikte energiebron: de technologie om zonlicht op te slaan en te gebruiken als energiebron is dusdanig doorontwikkeld dat het de meest gebruikte energiebron is.Diabetes I kan worden voorkomen: via het bewerken van DNA kunnen we diabetes I voorkomen.Geen voedseltekorten meer: lichtgroei-technieken en genetische manipulatie van voedsel zorgen ervoor dat voedseltekorten tot het verleden behoren.Steeds meer elektrisch vervoer: door onder meer sterk verbeterde batterijen is vervoer steeds vaker uitsluitend elektrisch.Iedereen is met iedereen en alles verbonden: gebruikersgemak staat voorop als via chips, software en sensors iedereen met alles en iedereen is verbonden.Geen plastic meer gemaakt van olie: alle plastic is biologisch afbreekbaar door gebruik te maken van bio-afval, en niet meer van olie.Kanker-bestrijding kent weinig bijeffecten meer: preciezere medicijnen zorgen voor gerichte aanpak van kankercellen, zonder vervelende bijwerkingen.DNA-mapping is normaal bij de geboorte om ziektes te voorkomen: door ver ontwikkelde DNA technieken wordt bij baby's de DNA al dusdanig aangepast dat risico's op ernstige ziektes tot een minimum zijn beperkt.Er wordt getest met teleportatie. We weten zoveel van natuurkundige wetten dat we voorzichtig aan het testen zijn om objecten te teleporteren.

Utopia series: the schools of the future | Philosophers' Mail | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

It is almost universally agreed that education is hugely important. But we are not particularly sure what we want from it. Our large commitment to there being good schools ironically has not been matched by concern about what they are for.

The aim of education is to prepare students for adult life. So the role of schools should be thought through only after we have identified the challenges of adult life. If school is essentially conceived as a training, we need to explain what it is training for. What are the relevant difficulties and challenges that we need to be equipped to deal with?

The nurturing and social reform models of teaching and their relevance to connectivist online learning

The nurturing and social reform models of teaching and their relevance to connectivist online learning | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

These are the last of the teaching models discussed in Chapter 4 of my open textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital Age.’ What both these models, identified by Pratt (1998), have in common is a focus on the individual rather than on the teacher, the institution, or state. They are both in a sense attempts at liberating learners from the restrictions of formal and institutional types of education - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2014/08/09/the-nurturing-and-social-reform-models-of-teaching-and-their-relevance-to-connectivist-online-learning/#sthash.97t2Q6zd.dpuf
