Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 11, 11:20 AM
The Walker Learning Approach has been developed over twenty years using an action research model. The Walker Learning Approach is the first pedagogy to be designed for Australian schools, successfully providing teaching and learning that
  • personalizes and engages learners in active learning alongside explicit and formalized instruction.
  • is culturally and developmentally appropriate across all demographic regions of the country, from remote indigenous communities to elite independent schools.

Olli Hatakka's insight:

Very intresting blog article on the impact of 3D-printing and its implications.

It, though leads me to wonder few issues...

 

1. How the raw materials for these printers will be delivered to the printing sites? This is especially challenging if the visionary idea of the scattered printers will become reality?  It is merely a bigger issue than just "buying some extra ink".  There will be totally new kind of logistical challenges ahead, unless we learn how to print matter from nothing ;-)

2. The second issue is the vast amount of different types of 3D printers that we will need for this scenario to become mainstream. The production of those will create a totally new industrial branch....or maybe we will produce "meta" printers that will print printers...

Create interactive magazine-style BI reports with Roambi’s new FlowVizWorld.com | VizWorld.com | Olli's Digest | Scoop.it
Roambi, creator of Roambi Analytics, has released a new, cloud-based product designed to put visualizations of business information in the hands of mobile and tablet users: Roambi Flow. More than a collection of interactive data displays, Flow begins with a series of magazine or report style templates which allow the user to create documents that can combine text, images, video and Roambi's own interactive data display visualizations. The documents are then published and organized for viewing as free-standing editions through the Roambi Flow app, allowing the reader to flip through pages, drill down through the visualizations, or pop up video or images embedded on the pages. Flow documents can be built from PDFs as well, using the PDF as the starting structure, adding new content into the Flow document once the PDF has been imported. The import, however is one-directional, as once the document has been converted, the functionality of interactivity using Roambi's gesture-based

Here are 14 things every leader should consider if they want to make an unforgettable first impression.
