Is This New App An Uber Killer?

Is This New App An Uber Killer? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

tionUber's citadel of disruption has been built on a shaky foundation - it's agency business model. Uber, in essence, is a "middleman" that doesn't make anything or own anything - it simply connects a driver to a rider. This core strength of not owning any capital assets however, is also Uber's Achilles heel. As has happened to many middlemen before it, Uber is about to get cut out by a bootstrapped challenger backed by the under-fire incumbents - the taxi industry.  It's called Arro. And

Design Thinking + Business Model Innovation

Design Thinking + Business Model Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A lot has been said and written about what design thinking is, so I will not go there. Instead, I will take a typical design thinking process and show you how it can be applied to business model design. As the design firm IDEO has been one of the early advocates of design thinking, let us use one of their design thinking processes as outlined in the Design Thinking for Educators Handbook. Other processes are fairly similar and I found this one to be easy and clear enough to be understood quickly

Can Design Thinking Help Schools Find New Solutions to Old Problems?

Can Design Thinking Help Schools Find New Solutions to Old Problems? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Principal Kamar Samuels had a problem: how to reach the most disaffected students at Bronx Writing Academy, a middle school serving mostly low-income students. The usual discipline methods weren’t working and Samuels knew that if he could figure out how to engage his toughest students, he’d have a playbook to reach them all. So, he decided to make those students his focus group, asking them what they liked about school, and really listened to the answers. That technique is part of a user-centered design approach he’s trying out in order to tackle some of the age-old problems in education, like low achievement for Latino and African-American boys, with a new lens.

The MIND diet may slow brain aging by 7.5 years

The MIND diet may slow brain aging by 7.5 years | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Eating a group of specific foods — known as the MIND diet — may slow cognitive decline among aging adults, even when the person is not at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers at Rush University Medical Center.

This finding supplements a previous study by the research team, reported by KurzweiliAI in March, that found that the MIND diet may reduce a person’s risk in developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The researchers’ new study shows that older adults who followed the MIND diet more rigorously showed an equivalent of being 7.5 years younger cognitively than those who followed the diet least. Results of the study were recently published online in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Vint Cerf is known as a "father of the Internet," and like any good parent, he worries about his offspring -- most recently, the IoT.

"Sometimes I'm terrified by it," he said in a news briefing Monday at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Germany. "It's a combination of appliances and software, and I'm always nervous about software -- software has bugs."

The Internet of Things will offer the ability to manage many of the appliances we depend on, acknowledged Cerf, who won the Turing Award in 2004. With its ability to continuously monitor such devices, it also promises new insight into our use of resources, he said.
