Denis Lundie's insight:

Inevitable cloud evolution, device profileration and personalisation in different forms. Hybrid & personal clouds, move to services and IT brokerage will impact IT organisations, especially in mid-size organisations where ITSM is limited, largely network-centric and where project & contract management, procurement and service integration and administration become far more important.

Dan Aldridge's curator insight, July 8, 10:26 AM

In a world where content is increasingly cheap and only great thinkers can distinguish themselves, will we see students becoming master curators of other people's content instead of creating it themselves? 

Jamie Ruppert's curator insight, July 8, 1:12 PM

Technology is a total game changer for universities. Universities will become content curators who collect fees on the content created by it's professors.

Robin Good's comment, July 8, 1:31 PM
@Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM: a few are, many not yet. But don't worry, if they are investing in planning for a sustainable future, not created only at the expense of paying students, they'll figure it out by themselves pretty soon.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 26, 12:16 PM



Blendspace is a web-based content curation tool, designed specifically for educators and teachers. Blendspace sits somewhere between Pinterest and Storify as its power and simplicity make it easy to search multiple sources, import content and visually display it and organize it into boards.


Its unique strength resides in:

  1. Multiple layout pre-sets
  2. Presentation-mode
  3. Collections are embeddable
  4. Easy drag/drop reorganization of boards
  5. Team collaborators (upcoming feature)
  6. Works across all computers and devices


Very easy and intuitive to use, makes the research and collection task intuitive, and organization, presentation and publishing very effective.


I really like how Blendspace works and the results it produces. If you are looking for visual tool to create collections of resources on a specific topic for your class or training program, I'd give Blendspace a try.

Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too?

Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too? | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it
Learning to write by hand has learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on keyboarding.
Denis Lundie's insight:

Interesting reporting, insufficient research. Hacademic journalism - The usual lack of longitudinal data, inappropriate control group, the classic tautology - too much focus on one thing is a bad thing (!)

 

Why not try: ''Keyboarding skills have learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on handwriting?"  Given the % of learning time for 4-12 years olds spent writing by hands vs keyboard, it seems everyone is very much on the safe side?

The Unfulfilled Promise Of Educational Technology

The Unfulfilled Promise Of Educational Technology | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it
With 50 million public school students in America, technology holds much potential to transform schools. So why isn't it happening?
Denis Lundie's insight:

This is an old,old tale from the 80's:

- Firstly, technology does not change social systems, people do.

- Education system is unchanged, there is no real political will to change education, and a great amount of risk (what if it does not work?) which needs to be sustained for 10-15 years.

- We keep measuring the same things, and these things do not 'require' anything more than we had before - Maths is Maths, etc.

- Edtech, by its very (unfortunate) name, misses the point by looking at the technology, and not the information, in information technology.

 

If the system, the structures, the incentive, the people and the misdirected focus do not shift, we will keep chasing these rainbows.

Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms

Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 6:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

David Collet's curator insight, June 12, 9:28 PM

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 12:15 PM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

What is the problem for which MOOCs are the solution?

What is the problem for which MOOCs are the solution? | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it
"MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses – have been grabbing headlines and conference time for a year or two now. It’s the very large numbers that attract attention. But are MOOCs solving any real, global education problems? They are certainly not solving the problem of providing the 100,000,000 university places now needed by young people in emerging economies desperate for HE. This will double by 2025. They are not the people taking MOOCs.They are not solving the problem that in the US student loan debt is now higher than credit card debt; nor the problem that in the UK 40% of student loans will not be repaid. University fees remain high while graduate pay is still low."

This paper outlines work connected to the successful convergence of digital, pedagogic and physical space. The Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning (SCIL) has been focusing on the gap that has existed in schools where the physical layout is often stuck in an industrial-era education model, rather than reflecting the possibilities of ICT-enhanced personalised learning. SCIL has been working to create digital spaces so that students can consistently transition fromthe real to virtual world

Could the Digital Generation Close the EBook on Reading? | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it
A few years back, when the economy bottomed out and sent the publishing industry into a nosedive, a colleague of mine told me that ebooks would save publishing. At the time, I thought she was crazy. Kindles were just beginning to gain popularity, and most of us were still hanging on to the idea that print publishing could survive-maybe even thrive-in the years to come. But a recent story from NPR has me doubting the possibility that reading, even digitally, will continue to flourish in the years to come.
