In the future world, do you still need college? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Traditional college degrees, which cost time and money, are’t the only option for adults seeking to boost their job prospects, writes Anne Kim in the Washington Monthly. Skill-based credentials can offer a cheaper, faster, more flexible alternative.

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Si combinas MOOCs, flipped clasrooms, digital badges, realidad aumentada, entre otros, lo que tendrás es una revolución tan grande en el aprendizaje que va a remecer todos los cimientos del sistema educativo tradicional. Es sin duda el final de una era.

The Future of Libraries Infographic

The Future of Libraries Infographic | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Libraries have been predicted to go extinct by 2019. So what are they doing to guard against the future?
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"The physical space of an academic library is also becoming an issue. While a majority of a library’s brick-and-mortar space is devoted to physical volumes, on average, half of the physical library materials never circulate. And as physical books and journals become less-used by students, librarians’ training has become outdated. Many current librarians are inadequately trained in the use of new electronic resources, creating a barrier to integrating e-books and other electronic resources into academic libraries."

A Surprising New Study On How Video Games Impact Children

A Surprising New Study On How Video Games Impact Children | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Is gaming healthy? It depends on how we collectively define ‘health.’ Dr. Przybylski’s study uses a widely accepted SDQ (strength and difficulty questionnaire) method of measuring “internalizing and externalizing problems,” “prosocial behavior,” and “life satisfaction.” He found that in some cases, gaming is beneficial. “Compared with non-players, children who typically invest less than one-third of their daily free time showed higher levels of prosocial behavior and life satisfaction and lower levels of conduct problems, hyperactivity, peer problems, and emotional symptoms.”

Josué Cardona's curator insight, August 27, 6:40 PM

"In other words, video games are comparable to other kinds of imaginative play. And play, most folks tend to agree, is of vital importance. Adults and children need more of it. However, the popular notion that somehow video games belong in a different category–such as ‘bad play’–is absurd."
