IFTF: The Purple Transformation: A Human+Machine Futures Scenario

IFTF: The Purple Transformation: A Human+Machine Futures Scenario | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"The human brain is the world’s most complicated piece of hardware. Emerging work in the fields of neuroscience and cognitive science are helping improve our education approaches to optimize for learning. Books like the Social Neuroscience of Education state that social contexts at different points in life can be used to help learn; brain games like Lumosity claim to advance this field as well. In reality, playing the commercially successful puzzle solving game Portal 2 was proven to be a more effective learning tool than Lumosity. Compare this to how people learned 200 years ago, when rote memorization was the dominant approach. Measuring the cognitive impact of different activities will likely lead to pedagogical approaches that look as different from where education stands today as it did 200 years ago. The incredible game Throw Trucks With Your Mind is perhaps the best example of this- using a head-mounted-device that measures brain waves to train players how to achieve calm and focus as a treatment for ADHD, PTSD, and other conditions. "

Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

Are we teaching kids these skills in a system designed for the 20th century?

The only permanence is impermanence. That is irrefutable fact.
