Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 17, 12:45 AM
Augmented reality–a technology that uses a trigger image to superimpose digital content over a user’s view of the real world–is growing in popularity and accessibility, and it holds a wealth of potential for education. Often described as “QR codes on steroids,” the technology offers new and exciting ways for students to interact with lessons, said Jeff Peterson, an instructional technologist in the Lamar Consolidated ISD in Texas. Peterson presented a TCEA 2017 session on augmented reality’s application in classrooms. Augmented reality-based apps infuse more engagement into learning exercises, and students often grasp complex concepts quickly with interactive content, said Peterson, referencing Drew Minock, an advocate for augmented reality in the classroom and outreach manager at augmented reality company Daqri.

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
Procrastination improves creativity
Art is never finished, only abandoned.” — Leonardo da Vinci
Everything left undone is always still very much on your mind most of the time. You get to think about it more often than tasks you have completed. This encourages you to think about new ways to improve or do it better.

 

Adrienne Branson of Canva says:
“Unfinished work is hard for your mind to let go of — in a good way. Your mind keeps churning, considering other options, creative solutions to the problem. Ever had a project that you just couldn’t stop talking, thinking, or dreaming about? This is how you make that happen.”

 

"The procrastination thought process works best for people who are working on innovative projects and need creative ideas for solve pending problems. You probably won’t benefit from procrastination if you have to deliver on tasks at the office and have strict deadlines to meet.

 

"Innovators and creative professionals use procrastination to their benefit more often than everyone else. Leonardo Da Vinci was a famous procrastinator. He finished the Mona Lisa in 1517 despite having started it in 1503."

Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

Number 1 reason why school districts should NOT schedule professional development on the day teachers return to their schools.  Usually, teachers are assigned duties as presenters for those sessions which means they have to prepare over their well-deserved holiday breaks.

A flipped classroom is one where the lectures become the homework and the traditional homework tasks take place in the lesson time.

This Supermarket is the First to Use Augmented Reality

This Supermarket is the First to Use Augmented Reality | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
Many people first discovered the power of augmented reality by playing Pokémon Go, but now it’s possible to experience AR sans-phone with a completely different goal in mind: grocery shopping. The world’s first augmented reality supermarket has opened in Milan, Italy. Appropriately called the Supermarket of the Future, the store looks exactly like a regular grocery except for one thing: a digital mirror is suspended above each shelf and table, ready to make perusing food an augmented experience.

When a shopper places her hand near a product, information on that particular food item appears on the digital mirror. The screen provides details on the food’s origin, nutritional properties, allergens, waste disposal instructions, and related products. The store was designed by MIT professor Carlo Ratti, who hopes that having these facts available while shopping will help consumers make more informed food decisions based on sustainability and nutritional value.

What Would Steve Jobs Do to Your Whiteboard? – Better Humans

What Would Steve Jobs Do to Your Whiteboard? – Better Humans | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
“We can only do three.”
Steve Jobs changed the world in part because he chose to focus on a very small number of most important things.
Walter Isaacson’s biography of the Apple founder is full of stories of Jobs’ technique, often referred to as “slash and burn.”
Jobs hosted an annual retreat for the top 100 leaders of the company. He would stand at a whiteboard and list out the company’s top 10 priorities. As the group fought to get their ideas on the list, Jobs would deem which were worthy of inclusion on the board, and write them down.
Once the agonizing work had been done to get the list to 10, Jobs would cross off the bottom seven. “We can only do three.”
By deciding what our priority is, we’re also deciding what it isn’t. That’s hard.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
“[Adolescence is] a stage of life when we can really thrive, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Temple University neuroscientist Laurence Steinberg at a Learning and the Brain conference in Boston. Steinberg has spent his career studying how the adolescent brain develops and believes there is a fundamental disconnect between the popular characterizations of adolescents and what’s really going on in their brains.

Because the brain is still developing during adolescence, it has incredible plasticity. It’s akin to the first five years of life, when a child’s brain is growing and developing new pathways all the time in response to experiences. Adult brains are somewhat plastic as well — otherwise they wouldn’t be able to learn new things — but “brain plasticity in adulthood involves minor changes to existing circuits, not the wholesale development of new ones or elimination of others,” Steinberg said.

 

The adolescent brain is exquisitely sensitive to experience,” Steinberg said. “It is like the recording device is turned up to a different level of sensitivity.” That’s why humans tend to remember even the most mundane events from adolescence much better than even important events that took place later in life. It also means adolescence could be an extremely important window for learning that sticks. Steinberg notes this window is also lengthening as scientists observe the onset of puberty happening earlier and young people taking on adult roles later in life. Between these two factors, one biological and one social, adolescence researchers now generally say the period lasts 15 years between the ages of 10 and 25.
