Our Inevitable Future

Helen Teague's insight:
Kevin Kelly mentions shovelware, Magic Leap, PokémonGo, digital socialism, and Jaron Lanier, an early VR pioneer who coined the term “virtual reality. "We’re susceptible to what I call “thinkism”, which is this idea that thinking about things can solve problems " and "there’s certainly a correlation that meeting and being able to do things online actually emphasizes the power and the benefits that we get face-to-face." ~   also talks about the shift from "ownership to access"."

It has taken me a while to build up the guts to write this. Alas, the journey of my dissertation presents a bold red sign: Stop. Stop following those you respect and admire to a T. Stop conforming to their thoughts. Start listening to your gut, your discomfort, your tensions, and your ideas. My past…
Helen Teague's insight:
Thought-provoking quote here: "So instead of dreaming of some utopian world where we could get rid of the foundation of identity-sorting and all would be solved, I propose that a more realistic and respectful solution would be to make sure we are doing everything we can to continuously and pervasively monitor and manage our tendency to categorize & sort, to join in efforts to alleviate the ills of those who have been alienated, and to help ourselves and those around us to always be finding new ways to truly celebrate and love our differences."

Tips for Increasing Engagement in Online Learning

Tips for Increasing Engagement in Online Learning | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Often times, tips for engaging learners in corporate online learning include external features and novel delivery methods. These range from using animations, “real-life” scenarios, game-design, leaderboards, and badges. But with learners actually spending more time learning and developing themselves outside of the corporate learning infrastructure, knowing what is appealing for them could have us directing our efforts and attention in a more focused approach that leads to greater engagement, activity and—more importantly—results.


Here are some tips based on learner preferences that could give you the results that you are seeking."

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Maker education, when planned around skills acquisition, can enhance social-emotional development.

Self-Awareness: Making in all its forms requires a full range of skills including cognitive, physical, and affective skills. Given this need for multiple and diverse skill set, effective and successful making comes from an accurate assessment of one’s strengths and limitations as well as having optimism and confidence that challenges can be overcome within the making process. Example questions related to self-awareness and making include:

     * What strategies am I using to increase my awareness of my emotions and how they influence my performance during the making-related tasks?

     * What are my strengths given this particular making task?

     * What are my limitations and how can I use my strengths to overcome them? ..."

This this post includes an infographic which summarises areas where students can gain self-awareness when involved in maker projects in the classroom. While the piece focuses on maker education in the school classroom it's also applicable to higher education. The areas of social-emotional development highlighted here resonate with the ones we've seen students identify in their reflective blogs when we run our Doctor as Digital Teacher SSC where they design and develop a digital learning resource.
