Shifting Needs in a Digital World

Shifting Needs in a Digital World | library life | Scoop.it

Based on his thinking around Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs using a school lens, and the graphic he created above; he explores the challenges schools face in supporting students through to the Self Actualization…

Denis Lundie's curator insight, June 24, 9:12 AM
Interesting, but tone, as often, is on the defense, e.g. parents should and teachers should 'set' good examples. Problem is, they really are either behaving in the same 'bad' manner as children, only further removed from the benefits of online life so that they experience neither.

Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing

Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing | library life | Scoop.it

"Those of us who are actively developing for the HoloLens, and for the other augmented and mixed reality devices and platforms that currently exist, are constantly looking for the next bit of news or press conference about the space. Our one hope is to find any information about the road ahead, to know that the hours we spend slaving away above our keyboards, with the weight of a head-mounted display on our neck, will lead to something as amazing as we picture it. All the analysis tends to lead down roads that say 5 to 10 years."

One vision of the future. :)

Bryce Cooper's curator insight, May 30, 12:29 AM
I think that the hololens is a fantastic resource, and I hope that it gains more traction sooner rather than later. The capabilities that mixed reality could present to my own teaching in the area of history are quite profound. Students could physically experience historical events, see through the eyes of someone who was there standing on the ground when ANZAC soldiers landed at Gallipoli, or when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. Students could interact with the augmented reality and use it to create great collaborative projects. They could use it to predict outcomes of battles, from being able to physically see the circustances such as terrain and armed strength.

This resource supports the SAMR framework well, in regards to the higher order thinking aspects of Redefinition. Students can immerse themselves in a situation in VR that replaces the physical pictures, text and videos entirely, and creates a new dimension to engagement with a topic. Whilke a documentary full of firsthand footage can be insightful for a relatively recent era, VR recreations of ancient historical aspects could be invaluable for student engagement and learning. 

VR has the capability to essentially redefine the way in which students learn and engage with history, and can present all new opportunities for teachers to plan and implement interesting and engaging assessment and activities.

The technology revolution transforming education

The technology revolution transforming education | library life | Scoop.it
Technology can empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. The students we equip with digital skills today will work in careers we haven’t even thought of yet, and build new technology that we can’t even begin to imagine. Educators, parents, and technology companies have a responsibility to provide them with the best education and tools possible to make this future a reality. Technology is the key to helping our students succeed, think creatively, and ultimately create a better world.

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | library life | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

How Teachers Can Change the Future of Educational Technology - InformED

How Teachers Can Change the Future of Educational Technology - InformED | library life | Scoop.it
One challenge facing educational start-ups is that many technologists don’t have real world teaching experience or have been out of the school system for so long that they’re out of touch with the classroom experience. And teachers who may have dynamic ideas for software or apps in education don’t have the technical know-how, access to investment, or experience starting a company from scratch.
