Powerful article...I see it happening already.

Rebecca Renck's curator insight, August 25, 6:43 AM

This is a wake-up call to something we already know.  Our world is changing drastically and this means in ever increasing relation to how we make a living and how our children will make a living in the not so distant future.  There are two points that need addressed now to support these changes and provide the best way to prepare our chidren.  Point one: we need to continue to modify education so that children get not only a basic skill set but also some specialized education as they become closer to the working age. 

Second,and maybe most important to us as parents, is that without the traditional office where most of us learned our work ethics and personal responsibility, along with many social skills as we came of age and entered the workforce, these things will need to be taught at a younger age.  Whether it be at home, school, church or organizations, a concentrated effort and / or instruction on integrity, self confidence, social skills, personal responsibility and time managament are needed.  Value based personal awareness curriculum need to be as important as math and writing skills. Even more important is the need to integrate more specialized skill and creative arts into their lives. Otherwise a young adult entering the workforce will not only have a difficult time being able to integrate socially and responsibly from a home office but will not have a skill set that he can market as a contractor.

Tracey Vickery's curator insight, September 5, 8:21 PM

The pace is faster than we have the ability to adapt.  Accelerated, self-directed learning will become the new norm.

A round-up of interactive video options | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"We take for granted that we can interact with text, but up until recently it’s been a challenge to interact (read/write/talk) with media...

Being able to interact with video allows us to personalize video-based instruction, by leading learners to the segment of video we like them to watch, by adding voice-overs, notes, pop-ups, screenshots, maps, references, pauses. It also allows learners to create video with even more depth and features and can the interaction can be used to support media literacy learning."

 strong>Beth Dichter's insight:Joyce Valenza reviews seven options for editing videos: * EDpuzzle is a "a relatively new, free tool for cropping and pausing video, adding voice overlay, audio notes, and embedding quizzes in the form of open ended or multiple choice questions." * Mozilla Popcorn Maker is a "multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update." * ThingLink for Video "promises the ability to drag and add text-enhanced ThingLink icons, as well as images, and embed widgets." * eduCanon "is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object." * TED-Ed Lessons allows you to customize the lesson to meet your goals. * YouTube Video Editor "allows users to easily clip and add text and filters to videos you drag in." * Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows you to "to annotate and animate videos and pictures..." There is additional detail for each of these options in the post. She has also embedded some videos that show how to create a video in the specific site in the post.

  • Created for educators, EDpuzzle allows teachers to set up classes, to assign specific video lessons and to engage students in creating their own video lessons.  Analytics share which students watch, when they last watched, and whether they watched at home or at school.
  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.
